The Ferrari F50 is a mid-engined range-topping sports car made by Ferrari. The F50 was introduced in 1995 to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary, succeeding the previous celebration model, the Ferrari F40.

Styled by Pininfarina, the car is a two door, two seat convertible with a removable hardtop, and reportedly, only 349 units of the F50 were produced.

Its body has extensive use of sophisticated composite materials made with F1-style construction technology, incorporating rubber fuel cells within the structure, and having engine and transmission bolted directly into the carbon fibre chassis, making this assembly an integral structural component of the F50.

It has a mid-mounted, 65-degree 4.7L naturally aspirated 60-valve V12 engine that was developed from the 3.5L V12 used in the 1992 Ferrari F92A Formula One car.
