    I thought it is 650HP. I think they are going for 2.3mil.
    I wish I could buy that now Considering there are only 3 in the world!

    This is 003 that I had to pleasure to be with when brought to Willow Springs for the first "test" in the US. It's faster than my LM, I must admit !!! My friend Jim called me one day and said that he bought one and we all went to Cal. to
    test her. This was in a Forza a few years back. # 1 had a misshap at Sears Point but is being repaired and the # 2 is in Japan.
    To bad that tey were never raced...

    While we are all here. I understand that #1 was sold to Art in California under the conditions that he could never race it. They also told him it was the only one in existance. Then they built the other two out of spare parts. I believe Art Z sued or something. Was Mr. Spiro forced to sell his car or was it his choice. I heard somewhere that due to the lawsuit 001 is the only one allowed in north america or something. Any info?

    Hello, Chris is right about Jim's car, but Jim sold the car because he couldn't drive her on a daily base to go to WORK !! He now, owns the 63 TR that he proudly drive on a VERY regular base. He is just a guy who loves to drive outside the track and enjoy Sunday drives with his buddies..His F50 street was close to 50ooo miles . That's a F driver !!

    Hi, I believe I've seen this car at the Symbolic Motors showroom floor in La Jolla California. Probably in 1998 - 1999 time frame. I remember seeing a post it on the steering wheel that read "Check oil before starting!!!"

    Beautiful car, I guess I get to brag about that I got to "touch" the car... oh what a feeling ! Did i mention I got to touch the car!???

    This was the car sold to Japan.(90% sure)


    I have never heard this. What I have been told was that Art bought #001 and had it for a bit with all the spares for 2 more cars. He then sold these parts back to Michaloto to make #2 and #3.

    Brian Crall??!? You know Art better then I, is that the story???
