1 Of 349 Ferrari F50s Will Have Collectors Fighting Over It

With only 349 examples produced, spotting one on the road is close to impossible and buying one is a dream come true for any car fanatic.

The Ferrari F50 was originally presented at the 63rd Geneva Motor Show, where it managed to gather Luca di Montezemolo, Piero Lardi Ferrari, Sergio Pininfarina and Niki Lauda, illustrating its importance in Maranello’s history.

This particular example came out in 1997 and it’s chassis No 266. It wears the Rosso Corsa and Nero with red seat inserts combination and was sold to Elicar S.r.l Italy, having its first service check on November 24, the same year. In 2005, it was serviced once more, only to be sold in 2006 to a Frenchman.

The red beast was then displayed at the XVI Sport & Collection 500 Ferrari Contre le Cancer at Le Vigeant in Southern France and its next big “event” in its life meant replacing the dashboard with LCD display, including the tachometer. The car was then brought to Le Mans Classic paddock in 2010 and 2012 and it received another service in July 2012.

During its 19 years of existence, it covered around 30,000 km (~18,500miles), which is quite a big achievement considering that most rare supercars (and not only) never get to see 5-figures on their odometers.

Needless to say that the car comes with books, tools, car cover, roof storage box and matching numbers, certified by Ferrari Classiche.

The V12-powered model will go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s Paris auction, on February 12, and will attract a 7-figure, despite the seller not mentioning anything about its starting price.
