    Unfortunately the advert doesn't go into much detail on ownership, delivery and history.

    Can I ask just purely for my own education, if anyone knows:

    The car is located in Canada, is that how an original Canadian delivery car would look, ie different from a specific USA delivery car, or is it a Euro import and they have added the middle brake light?

    If it is a Canadian delivery car, they came with Euro spec bumpers, seat belts, reflectors and lighting? (I know it has dark non-standard rear lights, but I am guessing they were an afterthought)

    I don't think there is any other car manufacturer in the world (apart from maybe Spyker) that has more brand name, logos and symbols all over the car, than Ferrari.

    So why do people think it is necessary to add some more, and really cheap looking ones. At this point please save the car and buy yourself a Ferrari F1 merchandise shirt and drive around like a billboard.

    I’m a total purist, so I couldn’t agree more.

    This is a very well-known F50, a little research will show how it looked in the past.

    Here below is how it looked @ 10 years ago here in California (images by Noah Gillard), as can be seen and was known by those who actually inspected it in the past, this car was modified in many ways.

    As is often the case, when someone decided to bring it back to original specification, they didn't go all the way. The good news is, it's closer to original spec now, and is available for someone who cares to complete it's return to it's original glory.

    These pics were shot in circa-2008 in West Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley whilst in the ownership of Attorney Brian D. Witzer (i.e. the previous owner three times removed).
