The F512 M is considered the Testarossa at its pinnacle, the last of Ferrari’s analog flat-12 supercars. After three decades, the car can still snap necks even while standing still. The F512 M continued the Testarossa / 512TR evolution, and Ferrari would make just 501 of this final version before sunsetting its flat-12 supercar series. Demand was high for the 75 cars sent to the U.S., and RM Sotheby’s Miami auction in December is offering #52, a two-owner model from the Youngtimer Collection with 10,200 miles. The pre-sale estimate is $400,000-$450,000.
The Cavallino Classic 2020 is coming soon in Palm Beach, FL. Far more than a series of shows, displays and concours judging, the Cavallino Classic is a true enthusiast-based event.

The entire F50 is built like a sports racer. The central tub is made from carbon fiber, while the body uses a carbon fiber, Kevlar and Nomex honeycomb. As in an F1 car, the engine, transmission and differential are mounted as a structural unit to which the suspension, elements of the composite body and even the rear bumper are attached.
