Ferrari reveals J50 Based On 488 Spider

Submitted by on March 13, 2017 – 9:25 pmNo Comment

Earlier this week Ferrari revealed their limited edition J50 at the National Art Center in Tokyo, Japan. The Ferrari J50, which is based on the 488 Spider, is meant to celebrate the Prancing Horse’s 50th anniversary on the Japanese market. The two-seater, mid-rear-engine Ferrari J50 roadster brings back the targa body style, which was used by the Italian car manufacturer back in the 1970s and 1980s. The Ferrari J50 was designed by the carmaker Styling Centre team in Maranello and it was created by its Special Projects department. Only 10 units of the J50 will ever be built. The supercar’s price is a closely guarded secret at the moment and it is powered by the 3.9-litre V8 engine found in the 488 Spider, which has been bumped up to 690 horsepower.

In comparison to the 488, the Ferrari J50 comes with a completely redesigned front end, new headlights, a modified bumper and a new hood. It also features more streamlined side air intakes and slightly modified side skirts. The rear has been completely re-designed too. The engine has a transparent polycarbonate cover and the rear lights come in pairs. The J50 comes with two carbon fiber air channels in the front bonnet, LED headlights and 20-inch forged rims.

The interior is pretty much identical to that of the 488 with a few minor styling changes. It also features a 2-piece carbon fiber targa hard-top which can be stored behind the seats.
