As absurd as it might sound, it’s gotten to the point where classic cars don’t quite stand apart like they used to. Now, it takes a unique story and/or special attention to catch our attention. And this absolutely immaculate 1996 Ferrari F50 has both.

Originally introduced in 1995, the Pininfarina-designed F50 was (perhaps obviously) the long-awaited follow-up to the lauded F40 and was actually designed to celebrate the Scuderia Ferrari’s 50th anniversary. Heralded as a road-going F1 car, it boasted a powerful V12 engine, aggressive styling, and some of the most groundbreaking automotive advancements of its time — like a carbon fiber chassis. This example, number 180 of 349, while sharing that same pedigree also has some other very special things going for it. For instance, it has just two Italian owners from new; it went through a comprehensive two-year restoration at the hands of the official Ferrari Service Center in Cadelbosco di Sopra, Italy; and it cost roughly $280,000 to complete the like-new revival. Now, this unquestionably superb show-ready supercar is up for sale, but you’ll have to reach out for pricing information.
