Ferrari F50 - 2 Owners From New 1996

General description : This Ferrari F50 (no. 103/349) was delivered new via Rossocorsa S.R.L., Italy in February 1996, optioned with a Rosso Corsa exterior over Nero leather seats with Rosso cloth inserts – the same specification it wears today. First registered to Zaoo SWC in Limbiate, the F50’s primary custodian covered 4,880Km by December 1996, just 10 months after collection. During its time in Italy, the car was maintained by Rossocorsa, GTO Motors and Autoficcina Bonini.
This F50, chassis no. 104768 remained in Italy with single ownership before being imported to the U.K. and sold to its second custodian in 2013. The Ferrari F50 had accumulated just 33,000Km on arrival, and has since covered a mere 4,550km, driven solely by its only U.K. based owner.
Furlonger workshops have recently carried out a comprehensive, no-expense-spared major service on this Ferrari F50. After splitting the F50 and displaying it at Salon Prive 2022, we returned the car to our workshops to carry out a major service, fit a new clutch, replace oil seals, cam cover gaskets and detail the engine bay. After reassembling the car, we conducted a road test and concluded its sales preparation with an interior and exterior detail. The F50 drives exceptionally well, with a slick gearchange, no reportable knocks or rattles and all controls functioning correctly.
Chassis no. 104768 is a highly original example that retains an exceptional amount of weave throughout the entire bodywork. The F50’s engine bay further compliments the car’s overall condition, with little signs of heat cycles and still possessing all the correct Ferrari factory stickers and markings. Further, the car retains its original exhaust, and is accompanied by its original service book, handbooks, manuals, both tool kits, wheel spanner, factory soft top and hard top and flight case.
This Ferrari F50 has been cherished throughout its lifetime, having remained in long term ownership by just two keepers from new. The car is a fully matching numbers example, including the ‘secret’ clam numbers.
This Ferrari F50 poses an exciting opportunity to purchase a highly collectible, manual, open-top, low production number supercar. The car possesses an excellent balance of condition and originality, which is quickly becoming a difficult combination to find in F50s. Offered in its original factory specification and recently prepared in Furlonger workshops, this F50 will make a fine addition to any collection.

About Ferrari
The first Ferrari road car was the 125 S introduced in 1947 and powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine, right?
Well it's not quite that simple, Ferrari did in fact produce e Tipo 815, in 1940. Tipo 815 was designed by ex-Alfa Romeo engineers Alberto Massimino and Vittorio Bellentani and by Enrico Nardi under Enzo's company but legal issues with the former associate Alfa Romeo prevented Ferrari from launching the Ferrari marque at that point.

Enzo did produce a series of fine road cars in the 50's and 60's but they were merely to finance his true passion racing, wheather GT/Sports car or Grand Prix. The 50's saw the birth of Ferrari's most memorable cars, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT swb just to name a few.

Under the surface tension was growing though. In November 1961 long-time sales manager Girolamo Gardini made an ultimatum to Enzo: if tensions continued, he would leave the company. As a result, Gardini was ousted, as well as Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, chief engineer Carlo Chiti, experimental sports car development chief Giotto Bizzarrini, and a number of others who stood by them.
Without Chiti and Bizzarrini the development of what was to become the most quintessential Ferrari and today the world's most expensive car, 250 GTO, was at a pivoting point. 250 GTO project was saved by a young engineer Mauro Forghieri and long-time racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti who stepped in and took over the program with known results.

In addition to 250 GTO, Ferrari launced such master pieces as 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" during the the 60's
By the late 60's Ferrari's prototypes' success came to a sudden halt by a new competitor, GT40. Ford turned to Lola to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after Enzo had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that gave Ferrari some heavy hits in Le Mans 24 to come.
By the end of the 60's FIAT purchased 50% of the company, starting a development that has led to a new mass-produced era of Ferraris.
