What Ferrari learned from the Ferrari F50



Today is a historic day, like all the days when a new flagship Ferrari is announced. In the line that goes back to the Ferrari 288 GTO, we now have a new top-of-the-marque member, Ferrari SF90 Stradale.

Most cars do not have their engines attached to the vehicle in such a way, because attaching the motor to the chassis is much like attaching it directly to the driver's spine. The rear suspension was also attached to the transmission. This kind of thing goes well in a racing car, as motorists are one-time users and have a short durability anyway.

For the wealth that bought it at that time, it was good, for whoever does not love to say that they just have a Race Car for the Road. People didn't mind the vibrations, driving experience or the fact that they had windows as it was part of the fun that Jeremy Clarkson explained at the time:

But accelerate the clock Little to the present and of all the flagship Ferraris – 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo, LaFerrari and now SF90 – it could be said that F50 is the least loved. Not that it is unloved even though I still shave my right nostril just to have one.

But it is not maintained as almost a high regard as the others. Here is Clarkson in 2013 and talks about Ferrari F50 in Forza 5 :
