Anniversaries are important and Ferrari celebrate them well. We have had a number of limited run cars to commemorate the history of the prancing horse. For their 70th year they revealed some incredible paint schemes for their models at the Geneva motor show. This year marks 50 years of the Italian supercar manufacturer in Japan and to commemorate this something very special has been created. Enter the Ferrari J50, a car that has become an instant classic.
Directly taking design elements from LaFerrari, the Ferrari J50 looks much like a miniature version of the hybrid hyper car. A raked design from nose to tail incorporates ducts, channels, and vents. Whilst it is based upon the 488 Spider, the Ferrari J50 has clearly been extensively reworked. In fact, you have to look very hard to see the resemblance. The engine bay is now on display and a contrasting rear section leads onto a fixed rear wing. A lower wraparound windscreen enhances the profile.
Under the glass engine cover is the 3.9 litre turbocharged V8 from the 488. No performance figures have been confirmed, but we do know that power has been bumped to a mighty 690 BHP.
The interior receives its own unique design with a red trimmed instrument binnacle and alcantara line leather seats.
Just 10 of these Ferrari J50 will be produced at an undisclosed price. All will be sold to loyal Ferrari customers.
