Ferrari F50 at Cars and Caffe

Ferrari F50 Cars and Caffe 2

One of the hypercars present at Cars and Caffe was this red Ferrari F50. Once the ultimate Italian stallion, it may remain the ultimate analog Ferrari roadcar of all time. Long before the luxurious and technological frills of modern hypercars, the F50 was literally just 2 seats strapped to the V12 engine from an F1 car wrapped in a swoopy body with a big old wing. You had to physically shift your own gears, and there was no radio, no sound deadening, and the engine was actually a stressed member of the chassis itself so every vibration became a part of you on a deeply personal level.

They sure as hell don’t make them like this anymore.
