The 1995 Ferrari F50 is a mid-engined targa top supercar featured in every main Forza installment.

With inspiration from the Ferrari 641 Formula One race car driven by Alain Prost, the Ferrari F50 is a limited-production supercar produced between 1995 and 1997. It succeeds the Ferrari F40 of the late 1980s. Only 349 F50s were produced.

In 2002, the F50's successor, the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari (F60), was introduced.

Description

What happens when you wrap outlandishly sexy composite bodywork around a Ferrari Formula 1 engine? You end up with the Ferrari F50, an “F1 car for the street” created to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and to serve as its ultimate supercar. The goal was to create an unparalleled driving experience by dipping into technologies directly pulled from Ferrari’s F1 program. The oversquare 4.6-liter V12 was developed from a slightly smaller F1 engine, mildly detuned for street reliability, and slipped into the carbon fiber tub right behind the driver. Cranking out 513 horsepower, the F50 was the most powerful road car ever produced by Ferrari up until that time. It was also one of the most exclusive—in order to get the keys to a F50, you had to be on a secret list of Ferrari’s best and most loyal customers. Only 349 were made, which was one less than Ferrari thought would sell, and required owners to lease the car before purchasing it. Ferrari staunchly refused to let any journalists test the car, but from all reports acceleration was breathtaking: it only took eight seconds to reach 100 miles per hour, and it would blow through the quarter mile in a tick over 12 seconds. In the hall of fame of ultimate supercars, the Ferrari F50 deserves a place of honor as being one of the most exclusive and exotic of Maranello’s creations to ever roam free on public roads.

The F50 was built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ferrari and the car's elite performance makes it quite possibly the ultimate road-going car from the Prancing Pony. Whether it’s the car's performance or styling, the F50 is at the top of the mountain.

Back in 1995, Ferrari had a problem. How could they follow the extreme and extremely wonderful F40? The answer was this - the F50. A road going Ferrari with a V12 engine from a formula one car bolted in the back; except, as it turned out, it didn't feel bolted in the back. It felt bolted to your back! As a result, the abiding memory for anyone who drove an F50 wasn't the ferocious acceleration or the 200 mile-an-hour top speed. It was the sense that you had a furiously spinning washing machine full of bricks hammering directly into your most sensitive pain receptors. Add in the fact that it liked to bite back in the corners, and what you've got here is actually the recipe for 4.7 liters of total misery. It was a very bad car - and it was ugly. Still, at least it made them try harder with the Enzo.

Characteristics

The F50 is a mid-engined targa top supercar with a 42% / 58% front/rear weight distribution. It has a dry weight of 2712 lb (1230 kg) and a curb weight of 3080 lb (1397 kg).[3]

The F50's engine is a 4.7 L (4,698 cc) naturally aspirated, Tipo 036-derived Tipo F130B V12 engine with 60 valves and a 65° angle. The V12 produces 513 hp (383 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 347 ft·lb (470 N·m) at 6,500 rpm. It redlines at 8,500 rpm and has a fuel cutoff set to 8,640 rpm. This engine was derived from the Ferrari 641 Formula One car.

The F50's transmission is a longitudinal six-speed manual transmission with limited slip differential and a rear-wheel drive system.

The F50 is capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration in 3.7 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 8.5 seconds, and a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h), which is exceeded in all Forza Horizon games and Forza Motorsport 7 when the car is homologated.
