Ferrari F50 Drag Race Top Speed
The Ferrari F50 is a mid-engined range-topping sports car made by Ferrari.
The F50 was introduced in 1995. The car is a two door, two seat convertible
with a removable hardtop. It has a 4.7 L naturally aspirated 60-valve V12
engine that was developed from the 3.5 L V12 used in the 1992 Ferrari F92A
Formula One car.
Only 349 cars were made. The last F50 was produced in Maranello, Italy in
The F50's engine predated the car; it was used in the Ferrari 333 SP for
the American IMSA series in 1994, allowing it to become eligible for the
stock engine WSC category.
Following the motorsport theme, Ferrari developed the F50 GT, a prototype
based on the F50 that was built to compete in GT1-class racing. The car had
a fixed roof, large rear spoiler, new front spoiler and many other
adjustments. The 4.7 litre V12 engine was tuned to generate around 750 bhp
(559 kW). In testing in 1996 the car proved to be quicker even than the
333SP, but this went unnoticed as Ferrari cancelled the F50 GT project,
instead focusing on Formula One. Ferrari sold off the three complete
chassis that were built--the test car 001, 002 and 003. Chassis 002 and 003
had bodies fitted before being sold. The remaining three tubs were
A custom-made F50 variant named the Bolide was commissioned by the Sultan
of Brunei in 1998 and delivered in the same year. It used
the F1 derived V12 engine and the same chassis, but was completely
redesigned due to the monocoque construction of the body on the
F50. One car was produced in the coupe configuration. Very
few images and no official performance statistics of this car are
available. At least one car was produced in RHD for the sultan, and was
subsequently bought by a collector in Ireland.

Manufactured in: Maranello, Italy

Over the weekend I attended the charity event in West Hartford, CT called
Ferrari and Friends. Is there any better way to go to a Ferrari event?!
We had the roof off the F50 and had to make it back to my friends garage
before it started raining in the afternoon. Hearing the Tubi Exhaust scream was incredible from inside the
car and I thought it was shooting flames which my gopro footage shows it
