Click above to watch the video after the jump

So let's say you've got yourself a Ferrari F50, and it just doesn't quite have the exhaust-flame-to-throttle ratio you'd hoped for. Never fear! A company by the name of Tubi will be more than happy to provide you with a set of pipes that will not only give your winged stallion a proper bark, but also allow that 4.7-liter V12 to spit fire like the good lord intended.

According to Tubi, the company is practically kissing cousins with Ferrari itself. The exhaust manufacturer has its headquarters located in none other than Maranello, and has been cranking out tubes for Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati since 1987. If you're thinking the throaty F50 in the video after the jump sounds quite a bit like the Prancing Horse's Formula One racers of old, you're not too far off. Tubi got its start manufacturing parts for F1 teams. Hit the jump to see the action. Tubi says the goosebumps are on the house.

      That's gonna ruin the rear bumper in the long run... But yes, it looks cool.

      Don't flames in the pipes suggest unspent fuel, i.e. wasted power? I would think despite the cool look, it doesn't indicate a good thing, performance-wise.

        Exhaust emissions always contain a small amount of unburnt fuel. I imagine in this instance the material used was changed so that the tip gets very hot quite quickly and stays this way therefore igniting this unburnt fuel instead of releasing it into the atmosphere.

      F50 FTW

        The Engine sounds you can hear sound like the chase car not the F50.

        Wasn't the F50 engine based on the old Fezza V12 F1 engine de-tuned. They couldn't win anything on the track because they were running V12's and everyone else was on V10's. When they changed to the V10 they started winning again.

      Eh... i guess its alright.. I still think my Yamaha r6 sounds better and more "f1 like."

      BBQ time.

      As impressive as that exhaust sounds, I personally would prefer to keep a car like that factory stock if I was the lucky owner.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's a tasteful modification at least, not like some of those ridiculous body kits.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree about not modding a super rare exotic, but that mod is about the only one I'd do.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Not bad for a car that is getting near 20 years old and its spiritual successor the F70 is already in development ...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I've watched a lot of Ferrari clips, and this is easily the best F50 clip I've ever seen/heard. You'll have to sit through about a minute of an F40 first, but I don't think you'll mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogXvp7AHAts

      Cant beat that with a baseball bat.
      • 4 Years Ago
      That's some of the best camera and microphone coverage I've ever seen in an amateur "street racing" video.
      • 4 Years Ago
      BFD. Trailing throttle (back-fire) flames out the exhaust is nothing new for high-performance engines (read, fat A/F ratios) and minimal exhaust systems (read, no mufflers).
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah - exactly - I'd expect some pops in the soundtrack from overrun. Really, we're getting engine noise, not exhaust noise. Wtf.
      • 4 Years Ago
      the sound we hear in the videos is not one of the ferrari we hear the sound of a motorbike that has the camera on it to follow the f50
