I’ve always been struck by how easy people find it to be sniffy about the Ferrari F50. The armchair enthusiasts will tell you it’s uglier than the F40 it succeeded and slower in a straight-line too. It lacks the F40’s functional brutality. It is somehow less of a car. In fact the only group you can guarantee will never refer to the F50 with less than the respect it deserves is that small bunch of people who have actually driven one. And I count myself among their number.
