You're looking at the single most expensive car currently listed for sale on Autotrader. It's a 1995 Ferrari F50, and it's offered by Cherry Hill Jaguar in the Philadelphia suburb of Cherry Hill, New Jersey. At $3.6 million, its asking price is equivalent to 100 base-level 2017 Jaguar XEs...combined.

So what makes the F50 so special? I'll start with the obvious: Ferrari has manufactured just five modern supercars in its existence, and the F50 is one of them (along with the 288 GTO, the F40, the Enzo, and the LaFerrari). More importantly, the F50 is second-rarest Ferrari supercar after the 288 GTO -- so if you're a serious collector interested in getting all five, you might have trouble finding an F50. Ferrari claims they made just 349 F50s for the entire world, though many agree the actual number is closer to 390.

More exciting for many collectors is the fact that this F50 is a rare U.S.-spec model. Among the 349 (or 390) F50s made, only about 75 -- at most -- were built to U.S. specifications, which makes them more desirable in the U.S. market. While the F50 can theoretically be imported under the "Show or Display" rule that allows for importation of certain rare cars under 25 years of age, a true U.S.-spec F50 like this one commands a premium in the U.S. -- and it likely will until all F50 models become eligible for importing in 2020.

And then there are the particulars of this exact F50. This car, serial number 104220, has covered just 5,700 miles in its entire 22-year life -- with a mere 1,700 added in the last 14 years. Kept on the West Coast until 2006 and in Florida ever since, this F50 is likely among the best of the breed -- and although photos on the listing are scarce, it appears to be in excellent condition. While I think many car enthusiasts would like to see this F50 gain a few more miles with a new owner, it'll require a lottery win for most of us in order to put on those miles ourselves.
