Ferrari F40 Model History
The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door coupé sports car produced by Ferrari from 1987 to 1992 as the successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO. From 1987 to 1989 it was Ferrari's fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car. The car had no traction control, and a rather agressive power delivery from it's twin turbo V8 engine...Rated by many as the greatest Supercar of them all, the F40 was the last car commissioned by the late Enzo Ferrari, to celebrate 40 years of production at Maranello.
Following on from the 288 GTO Evoluziones, the F40 took the concept of a powerful engine in a lightweight body a stage further. With a power to weight ratio of over 400bhp/ton the F40 set new standards of performance - eclipsing even the Porsche 959 with its 200mph top speed and brutal acceleration. Even today - these are really good fun to drive - and without the proliferation of driver aids seen in modern supercars - you are reminded what "real" driving is all about when an F40 comes on boost - especially when the road you are travelling on is not completely dry..Total production for roadcars came to 1315 - with an additional small number of racecars also made - all were LHD. There were 7 RHD cars made by Pininfarina for Brunei - of which we have sold the 2 that have come onto the market.
