While we are certain that sound aerodynamic principles and engineering necessities were taken into consideration when Pininfarina repeated the basket handle wing from the F40 on Ferrari's follow-up supercar, the F50, we also think that part of the decision process was influenced by the runaway success of the predecessor. Unfortunately, the F50 didn't quite capture the fancy of daydreaming kids and deep pocket car collectors in the same way the F40 was able to, but the V12-powered F50 was still able to make quite a mark in its own way.

Conceived as a roadster with a removable hardtop, the F50 was able to pull off one thing the F40 was incapable of: open air motoring.

Only 349 F50s were produced, and only 31 were painted yellow.
