The first Ferrari F50 was put up for saleAugust 3, 2018
The American dealer of exclusive cars Autosport Designs put on sale the first supercar Ferrari F50. The car with the chassis number “99999” was used as a test prototype, and in 1995 was exhibited at the Geneva and Tokyo auto shows. The mileage of the unique F50 is 2253 kilometers.
Since 1994, the supercar for sale was run at the Ferrari test range in Fiorano. Later, the car was tested on public roads near Maranello. F50 repeatedly became participants in photo sessions, and also served as the basis for large-scale collector models.
In 1997, the Ferrari F50 #99999 was completely restored to its original state and prepared for delivery to the first private owner. They became a Belgian collector and racing driver Jacques Swaters. Later, the car changed three owners and settled in the US.
Together with Ferrari, the buyer will receive a full set of documents confirming the history of the supercar, a set of branded accessories and the Ferrari Classiche certificate. This year, the car was completely serviced: all technical fluids, a battery, tires and a new muffler were replaced.
Another test car – the Ferrari 250 GTO – will be auctioned at the auction house Sotheby’s in late August. The sports car with the chassis number “3413 GT” is the third 250 GTO manufactured by the Italian manufacturer. The price is 60 million dollars.
