Another interesting car that can be found on sale on 12 February this year at RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris – Ferrari F50 from 1997. It is about specimen with the number of chassis No. 106825, with a Rosso Corsa paint, which for the past 19 years reached about 30,000 km. The beautiful example offered here, was sold new to Elicar S.r.l in Italy through the Verona Ferrari concessionaire, Ineco Auto S.p.A., on 19 February 1997.
The car was finished in the sporting combination of Rosso Corsa (FD80-31ZR) over Nero (8500) with red seat inserts. Registered AN 599 LJ, the F50 was regularly serviced, the first of which took place on 24 November 1997 at RAM Ferrari Service in Vicenza, Italy. Two years later, it again visited RAM, and once more in 2005.
In 2006, the Ferrari was sold to a Frenchman who registered it on license AB 166 ZH. The car was then displayed at the XVI Sport & Collection 500 Ferrari Contre le Cancer at Le Vigeant in Southern France. In 2007, the dashboard with LCD display (including the tachometer) was replaced by Modena Sport in Toulouse.
It was next seen in the Le Mans Classic paddock in 2010 and 2012. It again received a service at Auvergne Moteurs of Philippe Gardette in July 2012.
As expected, this Italian supersport two-seaterwill change the owner at the above-mentioned auction for seven-figure sum, which of course will not be a surprise since it is the 266th of only 349 produced copies.
