    Hiya guys...

    This drove past my girlfriends office the other day... she told me she'd seen a sporty yellow car which she thought was a ferrari & it was convertable...

    Well i though 355 or something like that..... anyway she got a pic on her camera phone, only and F50 in yellow!! Wow, blew me away! Reg was F50---couldnt work out the rest, but UK plate....

    Will try uploading the pic but its only gonna be 640x480 camera phone res! Still a good full 3/4 pic though!!

    So... any ideas on whos this is? or where it resides?? Is it the same one as on the cover of classic car mag a few months back doing a photo shoot in Manchester UK??

    Cheers guys,

    Mike

    One of the F50s was painted a medium blue. It's been repainted to red again, but it didn't look half-bad. Also seen a yellow F40--not too nice, IMO.

    Andrew, that's quite a sighting. Did you get to see/hear it take off?

    No, only 2 F50's this week end and one spent the whole week end parked at the local ferrari dealer . Only the black one was driving around.

    That black one looks absolutely sensational. What a car! I am not into F50s, but this one...awesome is the only way to describe it. It looks so sleek and stealthy. I love it!

    Amazing . One moment, we heard a high pitched noise from under us , we were going to the Loews Hotel...And a few seconds later a friend called to say that the black F50 just parked in the dock. I guess he WOT in the tunnel...must have been an amazing sight for the lucky people walking by ! :)

    Nice, the F50 has an incredible sound.

    I have a question though: what is WOT?

    I believe the F50 was painted Azzuro Blue and it has been restored to red now.

    Forza,
    Kevin
