Autosport Designs Inc, the US dealer of exclusive cars, put up for sale the first Ferrari F50 supercar with the “99999” chassis number. It was used as a test prototype and exhibited in 1995 at the Geneva and Tokyo Motor Shows.
The run of this unique F50 is 2,253 kilometers. Since 1994, the supercar was run in Fiorano on Ferrari’s racing track. Later the company tested the car on public roads near Maranello. The F50 repeatedly participated in photo sessions and also served as the basis for large-scale collector models.
In 1997 the Ferrari F50 # 99999 was fully restored to its original state and prepared for delivery to the first private owner. It was a Belgian collector and racing driver Jacques Swaters. Later, the car changed three owners and settled in the US.
Together with the Ferrari, a buyer will receive a full set of documents confirming the history of the supercar, a set of branded accessories and the Ferrari Classiche certificate. This year the car was completely serviced. They replaced all technical fluids, a battery, tires and mounted a new muffler.
Another test car – the Ferrari 250 GTO – will be auctioned at Sotheby’s in late August. The sports car with the “3413 GT” chassis number is the third 250 GTO manufactured by the Italian car maker. Its price is $60 mln.
