1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo
"Fifty years of racing, fifty years of winning, fifty years of hard work," is how then-Ferrari head Luca di Montezemolo introduced the Ferrari F50 at the Geneva Auto Salon on March 6, 1995. Following the F40 as the ultimate expression of Ferrari's F1 know-how in street-legal form, the F50 featured a lightweight carbon fiber tub, unequal-length wishbones at all four corners, and an all-new 4.7-liter V12 making over 500 horsepower. Draped in sweeping, wind tunnel-sculpted bodywork, the F50 could accelerate from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 202 MPH. Only 349 were made, and the one pictured here is the pre-production prototype built to refine every aspect of the design. Considered the most important road-legal F50 in existence, the car was pushed to its limits by a whos-who of Ferrari racing royalty — former F1 champion Niki Lauda, along with Scuderia drivers Jean Alesi, Gerhard Berger, and legendary test driver Dario Benuzzi. A true piece of Ferrari history, the car is fully documented and is featured in the all-important Red Book, confirming its authenticity.
