Is this the F50 GT1?
The car is for sale at www.oakfields.com and is suppose to have 720BHP!
yes I believe it is...
Yes. I don't see why Oakfields would lie.
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!
Looks street legal enough to me!
Holly cow. Looks awsome! Is it faster then a F40 LM?
F50 GT S/N 001
I'd love to pick up some drive-thru in the F50 GT1. Imagine the looks I'd get.
Nope, definitely S/N 003. Owner is Australian and recently sent it to England to sell.
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...
Thats one of my favourite issues of Forza. #16, April 1999. I actually have 2 copies of it
Is Your friends F50GT in Beverly Hills?
No, its at Oakfields. It is the subject of this thread
Owned by Jim Spiro then went to Aus. and now at Oakfields
When he said he went to Cal. to see the car. I thought the one for sale is #3 not #1
No, it was tested in Cali. 001 is in Italy getting fixed
Haven't asked in the last couple of weeks if it is done but #1 is scheduled to be in Monterey this year
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?
No offense but that wing sure looks ricey though,may be it's my imagination,i don't know ?
it needs it
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 !!
That is also someone to look up to. Good for him. I know if i had the car id drive it as much as i could
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!???
Can you imagine being stuck in traffic?
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???
I think it goes something like that.
