Default The Ferrari J50: Limited edition roadster based on the 488 Spider

Tokyo, 13 December 2016 – During a special celebration held at the National Art Center in Tokyo to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ferrari in Japan, Ferrari revealed a new strictly limited series of bespoke cars, the J50.

The Ferrari J50 is a two-seater, mid-rear-engined roadster that marks a return to the targa body style evocative of several well-loved Ferrari road cars of the 1970s and 1980s. Created by Ferrari’s Special Projects department and designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre team in Maranello, 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.

Based on the 488 Spider, the J50 is powered by a specific 690 cv version of the 3.9-litre V8 that won the overall International Engine of the Year Award this year.

Absolutely gobsmackingly beautiful car. It evokes certain feelings within me that cannot be explained.

If this is the future of Ferrari design, then I say, BRING IT ON!

All 10 J50s will be sold to existing Ferrari customers, who will be able to customise their sportscars as per their preferences. Though this car is based on 488 Spider but, looks significantly different. And J50 has 4 tail-lamps and a rear diffuser, which Ferrari says have been inspired by jet engine afterburners.
