The Ferrari F50 is a mid engine range topping supercar made by Ferrari. The F50 was introduced in 1995. The car is a two-door, two seat roadster with a removable hardtop. It has a 4.7 L naturally aspirated 60 valve V12 engine that was developed from the 3.5 L V12 used in the 1990 Ferrari 641 F1 Formula One car.

Only 349 cars were made. The last F50 was produced in Maranello, Italy, in July 1997 although there were a further six cars built for the Sultan of Brunei that date after the 349.  This car was first registered in Italy in July 1997.

The F50’s engine predated the car; it was used in the Ferrari 333SP for the American IMSA series in 1994, allowing it to become eligible for the stock engine WSC category – World Sportscar Championship.

As early as 1984, the Maranello factory had begun development of an evolution model of the 288 GTO intended to compete against the Porsche 959 in FIA Group B. However, when the FIA brought an end to the Group B category for the 1986 season, Enzo Ferrari was left with five 288GTO Evos development cars, and no series in which to campaign them. Enzo’s desire to leave a legacy in his final supercar allowed the Evoluzione program to be further developed to produce a car exclusively for road use. In response to the quite simple, but very expensive car with relatively little out of the ordinary being called a “cynical money-making exercise” aimed at speculators, a figure from the Ferrari marketing department was quoted as saying “We wanted it to be very fast, sporting in the extreme and Spartan,” “Customers had been saying our cars were becoming too plush and comfortable.” “The Ferrari F40 is for the most enthusiastic of our owners who want nothing but sheer performance. It isn’t a laboratory for the future, as the 959 is. It is not Star Wars. And it wasn’t created because Porsche built the 959. It would have happened anyway.”

The Ferrari F40 body was designed by Leonardo Fioravantiand Pietro Carmadellaof studio Pininfarina, under the guidance of Nicola Materazzi, the engineer who designed engine, gearbox and other mechanical parts of the car and had previously designed the bodywork of the 288 GTO Evoluzione, from which the F40 takes many stylistic features.

Drivetrain and suspension

Power came from an enlarged, 2.9L (2936 cc) version of the GTO’s IHI Twin turbos developing a 478 bhp, according to Ferrari. Most experts today agree the number was well over 500 bhp. The Ferrari F40 did without a cat until 1990 when US regulations made them a requirement for emissions control reasons. The flanking exhausts guide exhaust gases from each bank of cylinders while the central pipe guides gases released from the wastegate of the turbos. Engines with catalytic converters bear F120D code.

The suspension setup was similar to the GTO’s double wishbone setup, though many parts were upgraded and settings were changed; the unusually low ground clearance prompted Ferrari to include the ability to raise the vehicle’s ground clearance when necessary.

Body and interior

Ferrari F40

The body was an entirely new design by Pininfarina featuring panels made of Kevlar, carbon fibre, and aluminium for strength and low weight, and intense aerodynamic testing was employed. Weight was further minimized through the use of a plastic windshield and windows. The cars did have air conditioning, but had no sound system, door handles, glove box, leather trim, carpets, or door panels. The first 50 cars produced had sliding Lexan windows, while later cars were fitted with wind down windows.

Aerodynamics

The Ferrari F40 was designed with aerodynamics in mind. For speed the car relied more on its shape than its power. Frontal area was reduced, and airflow greatly smoothed, but stability rather than terminal velocity was a primary concern. So too was cooling as the forced induction engine generated a great deal of heat. In consequence, the car was somewhat like an open-wheel racing car with a body. It had a partial undertray to smooth airflow beneath the radiator, front section, and the cabin, and a second one with diffusers  behind the motor, but the engine bay was not sealed. Nonetheless, the Ferrari F40 had an impressively low drag coefficient of 0.34 with lift controlled by its spoilers and wing.

This is an opportunity to buy a simple mechanical iconic supercar in the right specification – don’t miss it.

NEW McLAREN 675LT Spyder LHD

McLAREN 675LT Spyder

675LT02New 2016 McLaren 675LT Spyder, due for delivery November 2016. Specification yet to be optioned so you can choose your colours and extras to suit your taste. Rare and desirable, this spyder version is one of only 500 cars being built for worldwide sale. Pictured above is the press release car.

The McLaren 675LT was launched at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and is the first modern McLaren to wear the LT (’Longtail’) badge. It takes inspiration from the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ that debuted during the 1997 race season. According to McLaren, ‘focus on outright performance, weight reduction, and ultimate levels of driver engagement’ define a ‘Longtail’. Embodying the ‘Longtail’ ethos, McLaren have focused on reducing the weight, optimizing aerodynamics and increasing downforce to generate more performance on the track just as with the original ‘Longtail’ F1 GTR.

675LT03McLaren’s aim with the 675LT was to create the most track-focused road legal model in the Super Series. To achieve this, McLaren reduced the weight by 100 kg to 1,230 kg through an increased use of carbon fibre and lighter components. With a newly developed M838TL 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the 675LT achieves a top speed of 330 km/h, sprinting from 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.9 seconds.

675LT06The 675LT is fitted with adjustable settings for both Handling and Power train though the Active Dynamics Panel rotary switches. The Sport and Track settings are uniquely calibrated to the 675T with the track experience in mind.

675LT05The car has been designed with a focus on track use and features P1-inspired carbon fibre gearshift paddles mounted on a rocker behind the steering wheel.

In December the 675LT was joined by a Spider variant. Both Coupé and Spider guises were limited to only 500 units globally.
