World Premiere of the Ferrari J50
On the 50th anniversary of Ferrari in Japan, Ferrari revealed their new limited series of bespoke cars, the Ferrari J50
The Ferrari J50 is based on the 488 spider, powered by a specific 690 CV version of the 3.9 litre V8 which won the engine award of the year. 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.
The bodywork speaks agility and radically futuristic design language. A completely new aerodynamic development package as the bonnet is lowered centre with the wheel arch raised with two carbon-fibre air channels in the front bonnet, a completely new designed bumper providing the radiators positioned closer togerther, The windscreen header rail has been lowered allowing more airflow over the aero foil and thus over the rear spoiler. A transverse aero foil projects as a bridge between the hoops, effectively revisiting one of the most distinctive features of Ferrari sports prototypes of the 1960s.
The rear diffuser features an extractor shape inspired by jet engine afterburners, giving the car a powerful stance. 20” forged rims of unique design were crafted specifically for this limited-edition model.
Inside, specific trim adorns the sports seats, echoing the design of the rear bonnet contour to provide a unmistakable signature feature. The carbon-fibre hard targa top is divided into two pieces which stow conveniently behind the seats.
