107560 too, but I don't have the others. And offcourse there is also 99999, 4 F50's are equiped with that number. My register is far from complete, but quite a lot of F50's. I can send you a list with the cars I have, but I have no history with them.

That's interesting - as one of my local dealers (http://www.racecar.co.uk/modenacars/) sold what they claimed was the only factory built RHD F50, not long ago. But it was a brand new car - it only had delivery milage, so I guess it wasn't this one.

Hmmmm, curious.

As far as I know there never was a RHD F50. DO you know the people there? If so, can you ask what the s/n was, and or they are sure that it wasn't converted?

Next time I'm passing - I'll pop in. It was definitely advertised on their website as such, although they didn't have it in the showroom last time I was there.

If I get a chance - I'll let you know.

I'll ask our importer about the RHD F50. He was the one that ordered them and sent them to Pinifarina for the Sultan. Actually for Prince Jeffrey. There were a few made but I can't remember how many.

There was even arranged one made with sequential gearbox specially made for it by Prodrive, England.

He also had one of the F50 LM made for the Sultan but that somehow was sold. That's how there are 3 F50 LM when magazines always said only 2 were made.

Yeah, i don't bother, its full of people who don't know what they are talking about.


Does anyone know the vin for the F50 that was at Joe Macari and ran in the gumball rally?

i believe it participated in the 2002 and 2003, i may be wrong. It had stickers all over it and a joe macari one on the frontm i think Joe Macari brought other cars too. The owner was taken to jail for getting clocked at 187mph. I hope to talk to him this summer about it, i didn't know he (or the car) were the ones who did it when i was there :(

The whole front of the car was down to the bare plastic/carbon fiber about half way through the race becuase of all the dust, rocks etc

Regarding 98170: just from memory, I thought that this car was the one that was shown at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello (without body) and that it later went to Argentina (with body). But to be sure, I need to check my archives ..... maybe later .....
