Ferrari F50 afterfire is delicious

Fire breathing exotics caught on tape is some of the best footage on the web today. Afterfire typically occurs when a rich fuel mixture leaves unburnt fuel in the exhaust gas that ignites once it hits the hot pipes. Afterfire occurs only when the vehicle is being ran hard, and is usually found at the gear change or during gear braking. The Ferrari F50 is a great candidate for afterfire, as Ferrari's naturally run hotter than most vehicles. Even though the Ferrari F50 is an exotic that breathes fire, it doesn't mean other vehicles can't accomplish the same thing. Most turbocharged vehicles are capable of doing this, as well as V8's with natural aspiration.

The Ferrari F50 comes with a naturally aspirated 4.7 liter V12 engine, with a whopping sixty valves! Imagine doing a cam swap on a vehicle with sixty valves, what a headache. Good thing Ferrari builds these engines to near maximum engine output fresh off the factory line, with minimal modification required. The engine used in the F50 is named Tipo F130, and is a direct derivative of the 3.5 liter V12 used in Ferrari's F1 car. Cranking out 513 horsepower at 8,000 RPM and 347 foot pounds of torque at 6,500 RPM, the Ferrari F50 is a very fast and highly desired car. Want to buy one of these for yourself? Good luck, there was only 349 of these vehicles made.
