Geneva 2013: Ferrari F50, LaFerrari Share A Geneva Show Connection

Ferrari launched a supercar yesterday...and fifteen years ago today.

There’s a funny thing about that “history repeats itself” adage: when it comes to Ferrari supercars, it apparently rings quite true. As you’re likely well aware of, we saw the Italian automaker unveil its latest flagship – the La Ferrari – yesterday at the Geneva Motor Show. Ironically, 18 years ago today, Ferrari unveiled its then flagship – the F50 – at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show.

So, given that symbiosis, we figured we’d compare the two uber-Ferraris to see how they square off. The specs – or, at least, as many of the LaFerrari specs Ferrari cares to disclose at this point in time – speak for themselves below.
