The F50 is the rarest of the Ferrari supercars. Just 349 examples were built, all of which were initially leased to prevent owners from immediately turning and selling them for a profit. Current examples are worth something around three-quarters of a million dollars.

When it comes to rare Ferraris, though, the F50 GT just about takes the cake. Built on the F50 platform to compete in the GT1 class of the FIA GT, Ferrari constructed just three of the specialized race cars before the company decided it wanted to abandon sports car racing and fully commit to Formula 1. With its 750-horsepower V12 that could rev to 10,500 rpm, the F50 GT was rumored to lap the Fiorano test track faster than the Ferrari 333 SP prototype racecar.

It's a rare sight to see an F50 in the wild, and you're likely to never have the pleasure of seeing an F50 GT with your own eyes. Those in attendance at last night's McCall's Motorworks Revival, however, got the chance to see both. The matching pair was one of the many highlights of the event, which included the debut of the Lotus Evora GTE Road Car Concept and the first North American appearance of the Lamborghini Aventador.

You can see a gallery of both the F50 and the F50 GT in the gallery above.

      I remember back in the summer of '97, at the Brian Redman/Merryl Lynch International Challenge at Road America, I saw TWO of these on the track with us (I was 12 at the time, and was riding in my dad's friend's white '86 911 Turbo). Anyways, I knew that the one was there. As we stopped in the pits to exchange front passengers (I was seated in back), I looked behind us and there was a red F50 about 30 yards back, also exhanging passengers. But lo and behold, before we took off, and before the F50 behind us took off, ANOTHER red F50 right behind the one in front (behind us), pulled out and made its way past us in pit lane. As we made it back out on to the track, I remember having both F50's simply fly past us after we made it around The Carousel. It was incredible, the sounds of both of them were incredible, and it's something I'll never forget for as long as I live. I appreciate the experience a lot more today than I did back then, even though I was still freaking out at the time lol. One F50 is special enough, but TWO? On the track with us? There were many other supercars out there that day, but none were as special as the two F50's. Sorry for the long-winded post, but it was just an awesome experience that'll likely never happen again in my lifetime.

      Love the F50. The last great Ferrari supercar if you ask me. Many reviews say it's the best of Ferrari's supercars (288GT, F40, F50, Enzo), and I could see why. And think to compare the 355, 456, and 550 to the current 458, FF, and 599. My how times have changed.

        I still believe Ferrari's design peak was in the '90's.

      looks like a before/after steroids ad for F50s with feelings of inadequacy

      Does anybody know what one would fetch at auction? The GT that is? Anybody know who owns them like Leno or Ralph Lauren?

      Simply AWESOME! I remember having a poster of the F50 on my wall growing up. Still looks amazing to this day!

      I don't know about the "rarest". For example, the Ferrari FXX, only 30 cars were made. That makes it A BIT more rarer, don't you think?

        the FXX is a version of the Enzo...the F50GT would be the equivalent of the FXX in such a Enzo-F50 comparison

      I can see the lines of the Lotus Exige widebody from the doors back.
