At the RM Sotheby’s Monterey 2021 classic car auction, a Ferrari F50 went under the hammer for an eye-watering $3.96 million. Fast forward to March 2022, and a pristine F50 example, with only 819 miles on the odometer, smashed that number by over half a million dollars. It sold for $4.6 million, setting a new model world record in the process.
Thankfully, time has been kind to the F50, as evidenced by its skyrocketing value. It possesses the critical elements needed to reinforce its status as a highly desirable collectible—limited numbers, halo supercar status, and best of all, a naturally aspirated V12 coupled with a gated manual transmission.
Ultimately, the F50 is fully deserving of its spot among the Ferrari ‘Big Five’—alongside the 288 GTO, F40, Enzo, and the LaFerrari. As pointed out before, wealthy collectors already realize the value of this incredible supercar, but it’s time others recognized the impact of the F50 as one of the last true analog supercars.
