1996 Ferrari F50 Bolide

A custom-made F50 variant named the Bolide was commissioned by the Sultan of Brunei in 1996 and delivered in the same year.It used the F1 derived V12 engine and the same chassis, but was completely redesigned due to the monocoque construction of the body on the F50. One car was produced in the coupe configuration. Very few images and no official performance statistics of this car are available. At least one car was produced in RHD for the Sultan, and was subsequently bought by a collector in Ireland.
