    It is my understanding that car was originally red and was repainted after the sale. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Marcel...

    This information pertains to cars that rolled out of the factory, pre-ordered in these colors... The original 349. Maybe another day, I could mention all of the "aftermarket" colors F50s have seen - along with the 50-or-so F50s that were made after the original 349...! :)

    There are at least 380 F50s - not including the three F50 GT1s, so that makes it at least 383... Of these extras, at least 22 were made after S/N 107240, which is #349 of 349...

    even 22 is a large number, i thought it would more along the lines of 5-10 max! Where these cars sold to customers? or where there a special purpose for these cars or what?

    No, the azzurro california one was not red before. It was repainted red LATER.

    I understand that the ORIGINAL (first) color was azzurro california. I have seen pictures of this car at the factory in Maranello in azzurro california. Suggest you ask Giuseppe Risi of Ferrari of Houston.

    Maybe the informations I read over the years about this F50 were incorrect.
    Lets see those pics at the factory.

    With all due respect, it seems that your info could be wrong based on these earlier posts which offer more detail:

    Love to know how the other ones were made, sorry if this is a dumb question. Being that every book ever made states 349, i would love to know how almost 20 more were made without being spoken of.
