    You mean changing your user name but keeping all the old posts for the new user name? Should be possible. Just send me a PM and I will try to do my best.

    While I immensely appreciate your humbleness, not even you could downplay an F50. I remember he purchase but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who'd love to see more of how that beauty is doing these days. 


    Re: Aventador and SV

    F50 is super rare. That said, I was never big on its styling. Feels too Hotwheels for me with the curves. I'm more of an F40 guy.

    That said, I won't turn down a chance to drive one, should off it to your RT brethren ;)

    What do they sell for these days anyway?

    Re: Aventador and SV

    The F50 is very rare in comparison to the F40 with 349 examples built versus over 1200 for the earlier car. I originally was not a fan of the styling but have to confess that was based largely upon photo's of the car as opposed to actual experience of the design in person. I believe the styling is starting to mature gracefully now and the once comically huge rear wing is now something of an era defining styling signature as it's like will never be seen again with modern active aero changing things completely. When you stand next to the car it has a presence that is unrivalled and it looks more like a refugee from Le Mans than a road legal super car. There are absolutely no frills of any kind on it with it's sole purpose being focused on speed and driver involvement. It has no radio, manual wind up windows, column stalks that look like they have come out of a Fiat Ritmo/Lancia Delta, air vents from a series one Alfa 33, a fairly cramped cabin etc but absolutely none of this matters when you fire up that V12.

    It was a bit misunderstood when new as it didn't blitz the performance of it's older sibling the F40 but offered a totally different experience to that car in the way it's power is delivered and the way the layout mimics an F1 car with the engine and gearbox providing structural support for the rear axle and suspension. Prices have risen quite a lot in the last 18 months or so with cars here in the UK now being around £1.2 - 1.3m and US examples selling for up to $2.5m. They are still undervalued compared to the F40 and later Enzo (rarity alone compared to those two should make them more valuable) but will surely continue to rise as more collectors look to complete the full set of Ferrari supercars - 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo and LF.

    It holds it's own against the LF when sat side by side. Here is mine - sadly the LF belongs to someone else smiley

    Re: Aventador and SV

    That's a huge Delta in GBP/USD cars given the much lower exchange rate now. Aren't these old enough to import into the US without having to pass emissions and safety stuff? I thought it just had to be 20 years old, but maybe I'm mistaken.

    Re: Aventador and SV

    I think it's 21 years before you can import a European market car to the US under the EPA rules. The US cars have a few differences to the Euro models and only 55 US models were delivered hence why prices there are strong. Once the Euro cars are able to be imported I'd expect prices on them to rise accordingly.

     


    Re: Aventador and SV

    I adore the F50 ISUK, didn't know you had one. Few (if any) cars sound better in my opinion.

    These are incredible:

    Re: Aventador and SV

    Thanks for the update and insights Iain. I've always loved the F50 exactly because of how "hot wheels" it is, I mean the timing of this car did coincide to when I was buying hot wheels like crazy.

    Haven't had the chance with the F50 either, actually I don't think I've even seen one in person. I did sit on an F40 once, it was glorious. 


    Re: Aventador and SV

    When I drove my GT4 last year at Spa, this guy was on the track with me (some kind of real F40 Spider Le Mans racing version) - sounded phenomenal!  I originally thought it was an F50 (but zoomed in on the fender decal below to see F40 LM)...

    In the spirit of straying off topic on RT here are a couple more pics of my 50. The engine shot shows the racing set up of the suspension quite well.

    I guess that F40 is this thing:

    Nice shots @ISUK Smiley. I've driven a friend's F50 with a tubi exhaust and it is indeed a visceral experience, and the sound - well I think its what Armageddon must be like Smiley
