With enough F50s produced and roaming the streets, Ferrari could homologate the incredible car for racing purposes, and thus the F50 GT was born. The primary name of the game was increased power and less weight — 200 horsepower more of the former, and much lighter. In fact, during testing on Ferrari’s private test track, it was able to lap faster than the 333 SP, Ferrari’s then-current Le Mans prototype racer. However, after that incredible lap, Ferrari closed shop on the F50 GT program. The bottom line is that the F50 GT is an incredible track car, with blistering speed and incredible cornering ability, considering that it is based on a road-going vehicle. In addition, it’s one of the rarest Ferraris around, with only three models ever built.
— Official description [1]

The 1996 Ferrari F50 GT is a pre-tuned supercar by Ferrari featured in every Xbox 360 Forza title except Forza Horizon 2. In Forza Motorsport 2, the F50 GT was featured in the March Car Pack.

It also appears in the Mountain Dew Car Pack for Forza Horizon 3 and as standard in all subsequent titles.

Synopsis

Succeeding the Ferrari F40 Competizione/LM, which is based on the F50 predecessor Ferrari F40, the Ferrari F50 GT is a track car based on the Ferrari F50. Intended for use in the BPR Global GT Series to compete with other series rivals like the McLaren F1 GTR, the F50 GT was co-developed with Dallara and Michelotto. During testing on Ferrari's test track, the F50 GT was found to be faster than the Ferrari F333 SP prototype race car. After the end of the BPR Global GT Series, Ferrari decided to cancel the F50 GT1 project after being unhappy with homologation specials like the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion being allowed in the FIA World Championship.[2]

The F50 GT features a fixed hardtop roof, large rear wing, new front splitter, and many other adjustments. The 4.7L naturally aspirated V12, developed from the F50 and codenamed Tipo F130A, was altered to produce 750 hp (559 kW) at 10,500 rpm and 383 ft·lb (520 N·m) at 8,000 rpm. The V12 has a redline of 11,000 rpm and a fuel cutoff threshold of 11,500 rpm.

The F50 GT weighs 2002 lb (908 kg) and has a resulting power-to-weight ratio of 826 hp (616 kW) per tonne. It uses a six-speed sequential manual transmission with nearly instantaneous gear shifts and is rear-wheel drive.

Only 3 units of the F50 GT were built.

Performance

The F50 GT is capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.7 seconds, and a top speed of 235 mph (378 km/h), which is downgraded in each Forza appearance. In the Xbox 360 Forza games, the F50 GT is restricted to 197 mph (317 km/h), while the Xbox One/Windows 10 PC Forza games' renditions of the car are capable of 226 mph (364 km/h). The Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the F50 GT is faster to 100 mph (161 km/h), hitting that in 5.1 seconds.

The Ferrari F50 GT is among one of the fastest non-racing Ferraris in the series, with handling and braking as its performance paramounts. When turning, it generates very high lateral G figures, all thanks to its revised front splitter and rear wing, along with its low weight stat of 2002 lb (908 kg), which allows it to corner very sharply. The F50 GT has very efficient braking, outclassing most modern hypercars. In terms of acceleration, the F50 GT can keep up with most modern cars as it is capable of reaching 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.7 seconds, but as with most rear-wheel drive cars, mild to moderate wheelspin is experienced during full throttle. With a top speed as high as 226 mph (364 km/h), the F50 GT is also competitive on most high-speed tracks.

Its Racing V12 engine favors horsepower over torque and can rev up to 11,000 rpm.
