Ferrari has taken the wraps off its latest limited-edition model – the J50, which celebrates Ferrari’s presence in the Japanese market for the 50th year. It’s based on the 488 Spyder, but still manages to look nothing like it. The aggressive front fascia has smoother flow to it and sports large carbon-fibre openings in the bonnet to help channel air, while the frontal radiators seem to have received a tighter packaging. At the rear, the car gets a beautifully crafted polycarbonate rear glass for the engine, while the quad circular tail lamps and twin tail pipes give it proper Ferrari appeal. The 20-inch forged alloys really make this Targa-inspired Ferrari stand out. Ferrari says that the diffuser at the rear is inspired by a fighter jet’s afterburners.
Speaking of which, the carbon-fibre targa roof is stored behind the Alcantara sports seats. Customers will also be given the option of having the upholstery customised to their taste.
Sitting pretty in the middle is the same 3.9-litre V8 with a bump-up in horsepower to 700hp. Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but the J50 will sold in just 10 units, only to customers who’ve got a collection of the other Ferraris.
