Ferrari Celebration Model

14 December 2016 4:07PM

The famous car manufacturer Ferrari has revealed the launch of a new series of bespoke cars, the J50 during a special celebration held at the National Art Centre in Tokyo. This strictly limited model is to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ferrari in Japan.

The Ferrari J50, based on the 488 Spider, is a two-seater, mid-rear-engined roadster powered by a specific 690CV version of the 3.9-litre V8 that won the overall International Engine of the Year Award this year. It is created by Ferrari's Special Projects department and reflects back on the iconic styling that Ferrari road cars of the 1970s and 1980s had, the style that has become a fundamental part of the public's love affair with the brand.

Just 10 examples of the J50 will be built and, in the spirit of Ferrari's fuori serie tradition, each one will be tailored specifically to the customer's requirements. The J50 presented at the launch in Tokyo is finished in a special shade of three-layer red with a red-over-black interior trimmed in fine leather and Alcantara.
