If you are a Prancing Horse enthusiast, your heart is skipping beats right now. This is a 1997 Ferrari F50, the real deal, and it is available for sale. It is one of only eight right-hand-drive versions of the F50 converted by Pininfarina. 

From 1995 to 1997, Ferrari built a total of 349 F50 models. This is number 298. There are only 21,294 miles on the odometer. Best of all, this F50 features the legendary Rosso Corsa exterior finish with a black leather interior. This is the most desirable color combination on the Ferrari F50.

At the time of its production, Ferrari called the F50 the closest thing to a street-legal Formula 1 car that they had ever built. This car was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ferrari. It is still sexy to look at all these years later and it remains an exhilarating supercar to drive even by modern standards.

The engine is the star of the show when it comes to performance. It is a 4.7L naturally-aspirated V12 engine mounted in the mid-rear of the car, behind the driver. This engine sounds incredible, it is capable of making any motorhead weak in the knees from purr to wide-open-throttle.

It is the legendary F130 B engine from Ferrari, producing 513 horsepower with 347 pound-feet of torque. All that power goes to the rear wheels with a six-speed manual transmission at your disposal. This engine features a 60-valve design which is one of the reasons why the exhaust note has so much depth and richness to its tone. 

Flying in this Ferrari is not very far-fetched. You can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. Keep going and you can reach a top speed of over 200 mph in style. More importantly, the Ferrari F50 offers one of the purest driving experiences from its era, if not ever.

There is no power steering, there are no power-assisted brakes. No ABS. Just you, a Ferrari F50, and the open road. The end result is a supercar built around a carbon fiber monocoque chassis tipping the scales with a dry weight of only 1,230 kilograms. That’s only 2,711 pounds. Incredible.

The only remaining question is do you want to add one of the most sought-after Ferrari models of all time to your collection? There are not a lot of opportunities to purchase a 1997 Ferrari F50. If you want a right-hand-drive F50, this could be your only chance for a long time. Don’t let this Ferrari get away, you will regret it forever.
