Ferrari F50 Description

The Ferrari F50 was designed with the idea of making a Formula One car for the street. This supercar was a more civilized and user-friendly version of the famous high-performance cars that have made the Ferrari name so well known. A carbon-fibre monocoque chassis and a purely functional interior kept weight to 3,080 pounds.

Suspension on the F50 consists of double wishbones and inboard pushrod-operated springs. The engine was an F1 unit stroked to increase displacement while maintaining a 8,700-rpm capability. The V-12 also includes dry sump lubrication, titanium connecting rods and five valves per cylinder operated by four camshafts.

Ferrari also began development of the F50 GT, building a prototype based on the F50 to compete in GT1-class racing. The car had a fixed roof, large rear spoiler, new front spoiler and other adjustments. The 4.7 liter engine was tuned to produce approximately 750 horsepower. Ferrari canceled the GT project and sold the three chassis that had been built.

In 1998 the Sultan of Brunei commissioned a custom F50 variant based on the F50. This one-off car, called the Bolide, was delivered the same year.
