What is it about slow-motion video that makes everything so much cooler? Whether it's as simple as slapshot during a hockey game or as complex as a hypercar, filming in slow motion adds a new sense of depth, technicality and beauty to the subject. That's especially true when the video in question includes a rare Ferrari F50 and the team from Tax The Rich.

One Autoblog staffer called it "mesmerizing" the first time he watched it, and we're certainly inclined to agree. The F50 has never been a very pretty car, but in this setting, it's somehow incredibly compelling, as it drifts around a corner and does donuts at an agonizingly slow pace. Scroll down for the entire video, and let us know what you think in Comments.

      Never got the statements of "The F50 has never been a very pretty car." I always have considered it a beautiful car...arguably the prettiest of all of Ferrari's "F" cars. If reviewers are to believed, it's also one of the best driving. I wish I could tell you my own opinion on the matter.

      I must agree. Beautiful car. I don't get that comment at all.

      Wow, back then F50 was a sweet car. I remember seeing it at Wynn Hotel Las Vegas at the Ferrari shop. It's over $700k!

        I got my picture taken between two Enzos at the Wynn. Great day.

      Probably one of the ugliest cars to come out of italy in 50 years. That thing was a terrible mistake.

        The group's name is such and they are in the United Kingdom. There is a world outside your "freedom fries" neighbourhood.

        what does this have to do with Autoblog? You DO realize that the group that makes these videos is called Tax the Rich, right? DawgByte going all illiterate on us again. This guy is unrelenting with his ignorance!

      The F50 is one of the most beautiful cars crafted.

      Would have been nice to cut back on the music and hear the engine. The slo mo thing gets boring after a while. Let's see the car really move in real time. Still a sweet car though

        You obviously haven't seen their other videos where they do just that....

      The rear 3/4 view of the F50 is one of the most timeless designs ever created. The front, not so much.

      Brings back fond childhood memories of Need For Speed II from the '90s!

      Timeless styling. This car will forever look as if it were released last year.

      Maybe it's due to the countless hours playing NFSII as a child and watching all of the Showcase Videos over and over, but I'll always see the F50 as one of the coolest cars ever made.
