The red valve look like a mod. Never seen them before. Also looks like a few other changes have been made further back in the engine bay.

Boxer- Are those the shock actuators? Almost looks like someone exchanged them for Corvette actuators, which are red.

Still my favorite modern street Ferrari.

Good news is the Enzo replacement will be another mid-engine V12, and not the speculated twin-turbo V8. Are you in the running for one?

No idea what they are. Never seen them fitted to an F50 before.

Agree on the V12 for the Enzo replacement. No idea if I will be offered one.

Boxer- Those are the shock actuators, see below, and run ~$1000 each from Ferrari. Turns out the actuators are common to 355s through 550s and all the Bilstein equipped Ferraris. The OEM replacements are red, so likely they are not Corvette units.

Are the ones on your car a different color?

Sorry, brain fart, I was thinking of the gold colored items in the first picture.

Mine does have the red actuators and they do run $1k each (don't ask how I know).

Is that a photo for the F50 GT? Those are external, gas-pressurized shocks like the Motons available for F50s and the gold cylinders appear to be the gas pressure bottles.

Most racing shocks have an external gas bottle like that. They are available for most late model Ferraris.

The first picture is showing a Enzo engine room. Is that the picture you questioned ?
