Auction Block: 1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo

Occasionally, a car manufacturer will take all that they learn out on the race track and imbue it into a road-going car. Ferrari, with their exceedingly long and successful history in the sport, has done this several times. However, one of their most significant prototype vehicles in this endeavor — a follow-up to the legendary F40 — has just come up for sale.

The 1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo was introduced to celebrate a half-century of nose-to-the-grindstone work and racing prowess. It boasted a monstrous 4.2L V12 engine aided by Bosch Motronic fuel injection capable of producing 513hp, had four-wheel independent suspension, a chassis made entirely of Cytec aerospace carbon fiber (weighing an astounding 225 pounds), four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, and so much more. But what makes this particular prototype all the more drool-worthy is the fact that it was actually test-driven by none other than fabled racer Niki Lauda, as well as both Gerhard Berger and Jean Alesi, to make sure every little detail was exactly right. This Ferrari Classiche-certified will be headed to auction shortly and is certain to go for a pretty penny.
