Ferrari F50 1996 – SPRZEDANE

Ferrari F50 zostało zbudowane, aby uczcić 50. rocznicę Scuderii. Zaprojektowane od podstaw, miało być „Formułą 1 na drogi”. Podobieństwa są wyraźne. Warto wymienić chociażby wannę i nadwozie z włókna węglowego uformowane w kształcie podyktowanym wymogami aerodynamiki, czy zawieszenie i układ napędowy. 4,7-litrowy. wolnossący silnik Tipo F130B V-12 był arcydziełem i bezpośrednim potomkiem 3,5-litrowego silnika V12, który napędzał Ferrari 641 Alaina Prosta do pięciu zwycięstw w Mistrzostwa Świata Formuły 1 w 1990 roku. Jeśli wrażenia z jazdy i towarzysząca mu symfonia dźwiękowa nie wystarczyły, aby przekonać potencjalnych nabywców o sile F50, to robiły to 525 KM oraz prędkość maksymalna 325 km/h. Wyprodukowano tylko 349 egzemplarzy F50, co czyni go najrzadszym z jubileuszowych Ferrari. Egzemplarz wystawiony na aukcji to numer 140 i został dostarczony pierwszemu właścicielowi przez Charlesa Pozziego, oficjalnego dealera z Paryża, w czerwcu 1996 roku. W lipcu 2019 roku Ferrari otrzymało certyfikat Classiche, do samochodu dołączony jest zdejmowany twardy dach i walizka, skórzane etui zawierające instrukcję obsługi i książkę serwisową, niemiecki certyfikat TÜV z maja 2021 roku oraz kompletny i oryginalny zestaw narzędzi. Samochód 2 lutego podczas aukcji w Paryżu wylicytowany został za prawie 3,5 miliona euro.

Addendum: Please note, on further inspection of this lot’s paperwork, it was found that a TÜV certificate was issued in 2021 but a service was not performed. Buyers should refer to this car’s service book to review its workshop history.

The Ferrari F50 was built to celebrate the Scuderia’s 50th anniversary and was designed from the ground up to give customers a driving experience so visceral and pure that it could rightly be described by Ferrari as “a Formula 1 car for the road”.

Indeed, the parallels that can be drawn between the F50 and contemporaneous Formula 1 cars are clear to see: a stripped-out carbon composite tub, carbon fibre bodywork formed in a shape dictated by the demands of the wind tunnel, double wishbone pushrod suspension forward and aft with inboard damping, and a powertrain that is arguably one of the most emotive to have ever been employed in a road-going supercar.

Worthy of its own place in automotive history, the Tipo F130B 4.7-litre, 65-degree naturally aspirated V-12 engine was a masterpiece and a direct descendant of the 3.5-litre V-12 that powered Alain Prost’s Ferrari 641 to five wins in the 1990 Formula 1 World Championship. Uniquely for a road car and similarly to the 641, it was bolted directly to the rear of the tub and employed as a fully stressed member of the chassis, with the rear suspension linkage bolted directly to the six-speed manual gearbox. This not only saved weight by removing the requirement for a rear subframe but also vastly improved torsional rigidity by unifying the engine and monocoque into a single entity. Furthermore, it allowed occupants of the F50 to experience sensations from the powertrain that a non-stressed layout could not hope to replicate, irrespective of whether the removable roof was in place or not.

If the visceral driving experience and accompanying aural symphony from the V-12 was not enough to convince prospective buyers of the F50’s potency, the bare numbers almost certainly were: 525 brake horsepower at 8,500 rpm, 202 mph top speed and a lap time at Fiorano almost three seconds faster than its benchmark older sibling, the F40.

Only 349 examples of the F50 were made, making it the rarest of the anniversary cars. This particular car is number 140 and it was delivered to its first owner via the official concessionaire Charles Pozzi of Paris on 24 June 1996. It presents beautifully it its original specification of Rosso Corsa paintwork with a Nero leather and alcantara interior, complemented by seat centres trimmed in “rosso”. It was Classiche certified in July 2019 and in addition to its Classiche Red Book, the car is accompanied by its removable hard top and flight case, leather wallet containing its owners manuals and service book, a German TÜV certificate dated May 2021, selected invoices from 1997 to 2016, and complete original tool kit.

The F50 has rightly taken its place as one of the most revered supercars ever built; an irresistible combination of rarity, performance and engineering pedigree; this magnificent example would make a fine addition to even the most discerning collection.
