How does one upgrade the ridiculously insane Ferrari F50? Well, if you are the Sultan of Brunei, you sink a ton of cash into a stupidly awesome redesign. Next to nothing is known about the ultra-secretive Bolide project. However, based on the very few pictures that exist, it appears that the car was completely transformed. In fact, it seems clear that a completely different body shell was fitted to stock F50 internals. Alas, we'll probably never know. It is forever entombed in the vast warehouses of the Sultan's palace.
Most dudes get a bottle of Johnny Walker and a case of frozen steaks for putting in 50 years at a company. This wasn't the case for auto design legend, Giorgetto Giugiaro. To commemorate his half-century of work with Ferrari, top brass assigned him a special project. Utilizing the manufacturing capabilities of the Ferrari factory, his task was to create a one-of-a-kind supercar for himself.
The resulting car was the cleverly titled, GG50. Hand-formed using a 612 platform and boasting a 540 HP V12, it's an intoxicating blend of classic Ferrari design cues and futuristic whimsy. After hitting the auto show circuit in 2005, the GG50 was returned to Turin, Italy, where it remains today, in full working order as part of Giugiaro's extensive automotive stable.
Built by Pininfarina over a 2003 Ferrari Enzo, the P4/5 is a meteoric achievement in modern automotive design. It was commissioned by hedge fund manager and collector extraordinaire, Jim Glickenhaus, as part of a project to build a one-off car that would pay homage to his classic 1967 Ferrari 330 P 3/4. The completed car, which debuted at Pebble Beach in 2006, was met with great fanfare from the Ferrari community and remains one of the most eye-catching cars of all time. Oh, what did it cost, you ask? About $4 million.
