Watch A Ferrari F50 Drift In Slow Motion: Video


Tax The Rich is at it again. The group that loves to use supercars for something other than garage decoration has already had its way with a Ferrari Enzo, 288 GTO, and a pair of F50s. Its latest video features Ferrari's supercar of the 1990s dancing solo.

In this video, a red F50 drifts and skids around the countryside, the driver pulling some moves most supercar owners wouldn't dare attempt. The whole thing was filmed with a high-speed camera, so there's plenty of slow-motion goodness.

Anyone who saw the last season of Top Gear will be familiar with this filming style, which breaks down the action of a car drifting around a corner into what appears to be a series of still images edited together.

At one point, the F50 even skids through the shot with its brakes fully locked; a puff of tire smoke from the rear wheels is the only indication that this isn't a bit of editing trickery.

The F50 was probably the least-loved of Ferrari's flagship supercars. Sandwiched between the paradigm-shifting F40 and Enzo, it just doesn't have as much historical importance. The bulbous 1990s styling doesn't help matters, either.

Still, with a limited production run of just 349 units and an F1-derived 4.7-liter, 520-horsepower V12 in the engine bay, the F50 is highly collectible. With an estimated 0 to 62 mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of around 202 mph, it's no slouch either.

It also looks pretty good in slo-mo. As always, it's great to see a supercar actually being driven instead of just sitting under a car cover waiting to be auctioned off.
