Listen To This Straight-Piped Ferrari F50 Tear Up London
The Ferrari F50 always came second to its F40 predecessor, but still remains one of the greatest cars to ever come from the Italian supercar manufacturer, and one of the best cars to ever grace the ’90s. Powered by a naturally aspirated 4.8-litre V12, it can most definitely sing. But whack a straight pipe on this beautiful powertrain and you’ve got yourself a car that can turn heads in one of the busiest cities in the world. London.
This video comes from the YouTuber TheTFJJ as he follows the straight-piped Fezza around the narrow streets of the capital. Eventually, he even manages to sit in the passenger seat and experience the sound first-hand. The microphone that supplied the audio to this video doesn’t quite do it justice with it starting to distort due to how loud it is. This volume isn’t a surprise though, as the gorgeous V12 is derived from that of a Ferrari 641 Formula One car from 1990.
Fresh from the factory it produced 512 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 347 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm with the GT race car seeing upwards of 738 horsepower at over 10,000rpm. Unfortunately, it never made it into a series, with the series Ferrari was hoping for, the BPR Global GT Series, closed before they could race.
So yay or nay? Has this made your hump day a little better?
