Rare doesn’t even being to describe the Ferrari F50 GT1. With just three ever made (this being No. 1) the F50 GT1 program was canceled before the cars ever saw competition. Instead, Ferrari focused its efforts on Formula 1, where it met with considerably success almost ever since.

Powered by a naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V12 engine, it was tuned to 750-hp at an alarmingly high 10,500 rpm, delivering a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds.

Similarities to the street car are obvious, however, a close inspection of the GT1’s body reveals exaggerated air intakes and an even lower stance. A carbon fiber monocoque construction has also been reinforced for track use.
