    I heard that there are only a few left, and the other F50 GT's were destroyed because of court order. What's the real deal?

    From what I understand, 3 were built, and there were three extra tubs. Dellara or whatever the manufacturer's name is was ordered to destroy the extra 3.

    *Do a search.* There have been extensive posts.

    I remember reading here that the third one that was supposed to be destroyed wasn't necessarily destroyed-- it's still around..

    Should be repaired by now- I talked to Art Z., the owner at the Greenwich Concourse and he said the car is getting everything repaired (and this was back in June)..

    Its been posted before I believe but here it is again.

    "S/N 001 was sold to Art Zafiropoulo, a California collector. This car arrived in the US on April 18, 1997 and was introduced to the public at the Ferrari of North America-sponsored Rodeo Drive concours of April 19, 1997, held in Beverly Hills.
    The second F50 built, S/N 002, was sold through Cornes, the Japanese Ferrari importer, to a Japanese collector, Yoshikuni Okamoto. The third car, S/N 003, was sold through Ferrari of Beverly Hills to Jim Spiro in Louisiana. All were sold in the $1,000,000 or "a little more" range.
    It was S/N 003 that sold at the RM Auction in Scottsdale for $1,430,000 including premium and is now on its way to an Australian collector."
