Fer­rari F50

K500’s Si­mon Kid­ston says, ‘Who saw this one com­ing? Val­ues of the F50, Fer­rari’s third – af­ter the 288 GTO and F40 – ‘ana­logue’ hy­per­car have ac­cel­er­ated nearly as fast as the 512bhp mis­sile it­self. And much of that in­crease has been post-au­gust 2014, which many con­sider to have been the mar­ket’s peak. Af­ter only 273 288 GTOS and frankly too many (1311) F40s, the run of 349 F50s – in a va­ri­ety of colours – struck the right note but ar­rived dur­ing the Nineties stall. Mas­sive foot­print and gloopy looks not for ev­ery­one, but there’s no deny­ing its en­gine’s close links to Prost’s F1 V12 and its driv­ing fiz­zle.’
