Ferrari celebrates 50th anniversary in Japan with bespoke J50


Build to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary in Japan, Ferrari officially took the covers its latest art car at Tokyo's National Arts Centre on Tuesday.

Based on the 488 Spider and limited to only 10 bespoke models, the J50 is said to take inspiration from Maranello's road cars of the 50s and 60s, with restyled front and rear facia's undertaken by Ferrari's Special Project Department.

Said to feature traits from the legendary GTO, F40 and F50, the tailights mirror those of the F430 while the steeply raked windscreen is a further nod to the fifties with what Ferrari refers to as the "helmet visor" effect. Along with the slim LED headlights and a jet engine-inspired rear diffuser, a set of 20-inch forged wheels round the J50's look off.

Like the 488 Spider, power comes from a 3.9 twin-turbo V8 developing an additional 15 kW for a total output of 507 kW. No other performance figures were revealed although a 0-100 km/h sprint of around 3.0 second and top speed in region of 320 km/h can be expected.
