The Ferrari F50 is a mid-engined sports car produced by Ferrari from 1995 to 1997. It was created to commemorate Ferrari's 50th anniversary and was the 288 GTO's replacement.
A 4.7-liter, normally aspirated V12 engine that generated 347 lb-ft of torque and 512 horsepower was used to power the F50. It had a top speed of 202 mph and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.
For its time, the F50 was a very sophisticated vehicle. It had a six-speed manual transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, and a carbon fiber monocoque chassis.
Additionally, it was among the first vehicles in production to feature a sequential fuel injection system. All 349 of the F50's manufactured units were sold, making it a critical and financial success.
The 3.5 L V12 engine used in the 1990 Ferrari 641 was developed into the 60-valve Tipo F130B engine, which powered the F50.
The automobile had a never-before-seen combination of an F1-derived V12 and a gated manual gearbox, along with a ton of Formula 1 technology.
The Ferrari F50 is a highly prized collector's automobile today. It's not uncommon for well-kept examples to cost more than $3 million. All 349 of the F50's manufactured units were sold, making it a critical and financial success.
