The Ferrari company has developed a good tradition to celebrate the anniversary a new sports car, and its fiftieth anniversary was no exception. In 1995 he was released Ferrari F50, which replaced the legendary F40 – Enzo Ferrari’s latest creation. Ferrari F50 was produced from 1995 to 1997, and was made just 349 cars. The last instance of the model assembled at the factory in Maranello (Italy) in July 1997. As Antonio Ghini (brand manager of Ferrari): “Ferrari – it’s cultural heritage, and in the automotive market of the proposed models Ferrari should be one less than the required demand.” Price Ferrari F50 as of 1995 was 480,000 – 555,000 dollars, but, nevertheless, all the cars have been successfully sold. Moreover, even before they have been manufactured. Buyers laid out money for this “genealogical stallion” only to see his sketches. And not for nothing, F50 was good in the pictures. This is the best creation studio Pininfarina, which is based conceptual model of Mythos.

The front suspension on the Ferrari F50 is the same as in a Formula 1 car, but its elements are arranged along the vehicle, rather than across, to increase the space for the legs of the driver and passenger. F50 spartan interior, too, but a little better than the car F40. When driving at Ferrari F50 in the cabin is such a roar that the installation of seats, protective windscreen, as modern a Ferrari 458 Spider Italia, would not prevent. Ferrari F50 is known for excellent handling, not least thanks to the wheel disks Speedline, made of magnesium alloy, which reduced the unsprung mass. The car is great helm, and a six-speed transmission shift clearly and quickly. But all this can be learned only from the reviews of the owners, because to buy a Ferrari F50 is now impossible.
