The Ferrari J50 is a -seater, mid-rear-engined roadster that marks a go back to the targa body fashion evocative of several well-loved Ferrari street motors of the Nineteen Seventies and Nineteen Eighties. Created by means of Ferrari's Special Projects branch and designed via the Ferrari Styling Centre group in Maranello, simply 10 examples of the J50 will be constructed and, inside the spirit of Ferrari's fuori serie tradition, each one can be tailor-made particularly to the consumer's requirements.
Based at the 488 Spider, the Ferrari J50 is powered by way of a particular 690 cv version of the three.9-litre V8 that received the overall International Engine of the Year Award in 2016.
The bodywork is all new and heralds a greatly futuristic design language, with a enormously unique persona that fits the tastes of a purchasers that seeks the maximum in innovative styling. The design method was led through the choice to create a completely low-slung roadster, encapsulating intrinsic Ferrari values of nimbleness and agility. To reap this, a sturdy dynamic become imprinted on the flank of the auto by using the converging interaction between primary guiding strains: the slanted pinnacle fringe of the aspect window, continuous with the windscreen, and the raked black swage line which dramatically rises from the low-set nose until it vanishes inside the air intake aft of the doors.
While the "helmet visor" impact, which spawns from the window graphic, is paying homage to Ferrari's open competition barchettas going as a ways again because the 1950s, the black dividing line is a singular interpretation of a habitual Ferrari styling cue seen on iconic fashions inclusive of the GTO, F40 and F50. Circling around the the front of the auto under knee peak, it is a key element which alters the notion of the beltline, putting it at a miles decrease height than normal, remodeling the J50 into a barchetta.

Two carbon-fibre air channels within the the front bonnet create a good greater diminutive and sharper looking front mass underlined by way of the full LED headlights that function a specific and really dynamic profile.
The J50 advantages from targeted aerodynamic development with a number of significant purposeful solutions. Firstly, the radiators have been positioned nearer together, and the front bumper has been absolutely redesigned. The windscreen header rail has been decreased allowing extra airflow over the aero foil and as a consequence over the rear spoiler.
The sophisticated tail section is ruled by means of the clever interaction of picture design subject matters and three-dimensional elements. The engine is framed by a transparent polycarbonate cover which is intricately fashioned to offer a visual extension of the 2 separate roll hoops protective the heads of driving force and passenger. A transverse aero foil tasks as a bridge between the hoops, effectively revisiting one of the maximum unique functions of Ferrari sports prototypes of the Nineteen Sixties.
The rear is decidedly aggressive in nature, with the quad taillight design widening the car visually beneath a high-downforce wing profile. The rear diffuser functions an extractor shape inspired via jet engine afterburners, giving the auto a powerful stance. 20" solid rims of particular design had been crafted specially for this restrained-version model.
Inside the cabin, precise trim adorns the sports activities seats, echoing the design of the rear bonnet contour to offer a unmistakable signature function. The carbon-fibre hard targa pinnacle is divided into portions which stow with no trouble in the back of the seats.
