Italian sports carmaker Ferrari marks a milestone for having been in Japan for 50 years. In celebration of this fact and as a tribute to the country that is one of Ferrari’s precious markets, the sports carmaker is launching a limited series model exclusive to Japan – the Ferrari J50.
This limited series model was unveiled at Ferrari‘s special 50th anniversary celebration at the National Art Center in Tokyo, Japan. Only 10 examples of the Ferrari J50 will be produced and each will be built according to the taste and preferences of their respective owners – as per Ferrari’s fuori serie tradition.
The Ferrari J50 is derived from the Ferrari 488 Spider, and a number of modifications were made to transform this sports car into a limited series vehicle celebrating the carmaker’s 50 years in Japan.
