It’s not often that one of the world’s most iconic and loved supercars comes up for sale, and when they do the deals are usually between collectors and not out in public. This time round, a very rare 1997 Ferrari F50 is headed to a public sealed auction through RM Sotheby’s and that means that anyone with the funds has access to the car. It’s not just any F50 either, this one is in Giallo Modena, a super smooth yellow colour. There were only 349 units of the F50 built, so it’s already quite rare, but out of those cars, just 31 were sold in Giallo Modena and they hardly ever come up for sale. This specific example has spent the majority of its life in the Far East, and that’s where it can still be found, Hong Kong. Normally the location would affect sales, but with the kinds of collectors that will be after this car, paying an exorbitant fee for shipping and taxes will be well worth it. This F50 has been meticulously maintained in the hands of the current owner who’s had the car in his collection for 20 years now. You can see from the images that every part of the car is as it should be, and the abundance of exposed carbon fibre still looks like it did the day the car left the Maranello factory. The auction will be taking place online on 2 October, and we’ll be doing our best to follow the proceedings. The full details of the car haven’t been released yet so we don’t know the current mileage, but these cars never really have high enough mileage to worry about. The car does come with all the official paperwork and owner’s manual as well as all the accessories that came with the car new, including stands to house the roof when it's removed. The Giallo Modena F50 is expected to fetch between $4,000,000 and $5,000,000. The high end translates to R94,514,742.41 at the current exchange rate.
Take a look at the YouTube video, albeit short, that shows a quick walkaround of the absolutely stunning Ferrari F50 in the ultra-rare Giallo Modena paint scheme that reportedly makes this one of just 31 cars produced in this colour, and is F50 number 313 of 349 produced in total. The car will head to a sealed online auction through RM Sotheby's, which means the car will be accessible by the public to bid on as opposed to the usual way they change hands privately: Amazing Collecting!
