You Can Buy the First Ferrari F50 Ever Built

Now’s your chance to own a piece of hypercar history.

Before the Ferrari Enzo was enshrined on the bedroom walls of future gearheads in the ’00s, the F50 was worshipped by their older brothers. Now the very first model, the 1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo, is officially on the market.

Serial number 99999—the last Ferrari with a five-digit serial number—has been driven 1,400 miles in over two decades. It’s 6-speed manual gearbox and 4.7-liter V12 engine are still in pristine condition and fully capable of rocketing the red-hot Italian exotic to its 200 mph-plus top speed.

Autosport Designs, Inc. has further information on the F50 Berlinetta Prototipo’s incredible pedigree:

“From early 1994, it had performed lap after lap on Ferrari’s Fiorano test track usually wearing Italian Prova plate MO2112. Then, completing hundreds of kilometers on the roads around Maranello, all in the capable hands of test drivers Dario Benuzzi, Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger, and Jean Alesi.”

“After miles of road and track testing by the factory, in late 1997, F50 #99999 was rebuilt by the factory in preparation for its presentation to its first registered owner. On 30 January 1998, F50 #99999 was presented to Jacques Swaters and transported to Garage Francorchamps in Belgium where it joined the Swaters collection.”

Automotive Designs, Inc. lists the price as available upon request, but potential buyers should expect to spend millions of dollars to pick up this automotive icon.
