    Happy you enjoy, Il Cavalieri.
    I am surely not a great F50 specialist, just a strong enthusiast!

    I do love the condition of this car. However, I cannot take all credit for it. I remember when I bought this car in 2014, I was quite amazed by its condition and how the car drove in a 20-km test ride with the selling agent. (This despite the fact that I was already a custidian of another F50 which I considered excellent).

    Here are a couple of pictures from the selling agents a decade ago

    However, remember that Condition is only one of the many dimensions of quality and that the best cars need to excell as well on most of the other dimensions discussed in this thread.

    Good question. My interest has now moved on from driving. I had my fair share of focusing mainly on hard driving road cars: 80’s while a student with 308s with the corresponding wildness that this time and age made possible; 90’s with a 512TR with numerous trips across various countries in Europe; 1st half of 2000’s pushing the F40 hard for 10,000km plus; 2nd half of 2000’s enjoying exciting driving of a Carrera GT for 12,000km; 2010’s pushing hard for 6,000km with the new 599 GTO as well as an Enzo and for numerous years with my first F50. I was lucky to have caused no damage over so many decades of pushing the envelope and sometime it is good to not be too greedy and want more. It was time to change the focus. But the passion and resulting pleasure is no less (with a bit more contribution to others too).

    I feel you, when I was younger I was certainly more spirited on the road and track and ironically now i'm older I feel like life is more precious

    Wow what a sight that must be to be presented with them cars all lined like that in front of you. It would definitely take a few moments to take it all in.

    Chris was quite taken. He acknowledged that they were the best.
    And when he thought the ultra-low mileage one was the summit like direct out-of-the-factory, he still got more surprised…
