Only 349 Ferrari F50's were built. with production starting in 1995 and finishing in 1997.

Power was from a 519hp 4.7 Litre naturally aspirated V12 with 5 valves per cylinder, and mid-mounted longitudinally in the chassis just forward of the rear wheels.

The F50 drew heavily on current F1 technology including Bosch Motronic Fuel Injection, dry sump, forged titanium connecting rods and generous use of aluminium and magnesium to keep weight to a minimum.

1-110 km/h took just 4.7 seconds, and 0-160 km/h came up in 8.5. Top speed was 194 mph (312 km/h).
