Normally we would advise against buying an exotic car from someone with face tattoos, but this one is well documented. Ferrari’s F50 was a 90’s supercar in every way. Only 50 examples were sold in the US, so many enthusiasts jump at the opportunity to own one. Seeing one in person is a rarity altogether, so pack your bags for the Amelia Island Concours. Every March cars from around the world converge around the Ritz-Carlton for RM Sotheby’s auction. This year’s main event will be a Battle Royale among Ferrari collectors because this F50 was ordered by none other than Mike Tyson. “Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth”. And you should have a plan to stop by our hospitality suite at the Concours.
With only 5,694 miles the condition of the car speaks for itself. An engine out service addressed all the issues associated with long-term storage and also allowed this F50 to be Classiche Certified. So in addition to the hardtop storage crate, the winning bidder will also receive the “Red Book” detailing the provenance of the car. Essentially the F50 was a detuned Formula 1 car, making 520 hp and revving to 10,000 rpm. In order to hear the incredible engine at full power, the current owner swapped the factory exhaust for a Tubi high flow system. When the engine was out, new fuel tanks were installed and technicians rebuilt the water and oil pumps. It is being listed between 2.2 and 2.4 Million Dollars, so contact RM to place your bid and stay with us for complete coverage from Amelia Island.
