Ferrari’s [NYSE:RACE] Special Projects division has unveiled a limited-edition J50 model to mark the 50th anniversary of their existence in the market in Japan. You’ll recall Ferrari unveiled F60 America special edition back in 2014 to mark 60 years of sales in America.
Ferrari J50 will be built in a limited run of just 10 examples.
The car made a debut at the Ferrari 50 Year in Japan Anniversary Finale held at Tokyo’s New National Art Museum. The J50 is based on the 488 Spider and in a way, it has the same destiny as the first Ferrari imported into Japan back in 1966.
It will probably be a blueprint for brand’s future design.

The key in all this is the black dividing line that runs below knee height at the front of the vehicle. It changes the perception of the beltline, setting it at a lower height than usual and giving the driver a sense that the car is hugging the road. This theme is sustained with the windscreen header rail which has been lowered compared to the 488.
