By now, the so-called push-in technique has completely faded from the public consciousness, as even those cars that were manufactured without a catalytic converter have disappeared from the roads. It is not recommended to push a car with a catalytic converter at all, because the accumulated, unburnt fuel can explode when the engine starts, thus destroying the part.
With this in mind, they filmed an amazing scene in Brazil: the footage shows half a dozen guys pushing a Ferrari F50, which then comes to life with great difficulty. Fortunately for them, the Italian sports car had to be prepared to start on a road with little traffic, but it is not clear what led to the strange situation. After the technique was successfully started, the V12 engine roared, and the driver waved his thanks for the help.
At the same time, it is also true that the Ferrari F50 is still a legacy of the previous millennium. It was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1995, on the occasion of the brand’s 50th anniversary – a total of 349 units of the type were produced until 1997. Its 4.7-liter V12 power source came from Formula 1, previously driving the 1990 racing machine.
According to official data, the road supercar was capable of 520 horsepower with the F1 drive, which it delivered at 8,500 rpm, while its maximum torque of 471 Nm was reached at 6,500 rpm. The F50 accelerates to 100 km/h in just 3.87 seconds, and its top speed even exceeds 325 km/h.
In addition to the engine, several components of the F50 are based on Ferrari’s Formula 1 experience, such as the carbon fiber passenger cell, to which the front suspension was directly attached, while the engine was attached to the chassis. Among its many other features, the type is also known for its hard top, which can be easily removed by hand, so anyone who wants to can even feel how their hair flutters in it. It is no wonder that such a large cult has been built around him:
