It is not often that you see two rare Ferrari supercars dueling it out. With just 349 examples of the Ferrari F50 in existence, seeing them in a short but smokey game of tug-o-war is simply excellent!
The gearheads at ‘Tax the Rich’ were able to pit the two Ferrari F50s against each other for this spectacular YouTube footage. Thanks guys!
The first few minutes show the F50s, one red and one yellow, doing a bit of showing off for the cameras. The warm up sessions last a while, showing some cool moves. Once they finally reach each other, the showdown begins—ending in an epic game of rope tugging fueled by so many Prancing Horsepower.
The glorious rumble of the Ferrari F50 engines make an amazing soundtrack while the smoke escapes the hefty engines in exuberant, snarling puffs.
