Built to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th birthday, the F40 is just the car for anyone who finds the 288 GTO a bit on the tame side. If the GTO pioneered the idea of a modern Ferrari ‘’supercar’’. The F40 consecrated it. As pure and aggressive as a racing car, the F40 is relentlessly minimal and fantastically focused in its approach. A tubular steel chassis is clothed in advanced Kevlar and composite body panels, reducing weight while improving torsional rigidity. In search of lightness the F40 offers even less in the way of contact – having no carpets or door panels. The Ferrari F40 – an icon.
Our example is a non-cat, non-adjust, black airbox model, and was one of the 350 cars first built in the racing factory at Ferrari before production moved to the standard line. Having spent all its life in Italy under the ownership of the same person since new until 2013 when it was imported to the UK. In 2013, this F40 received the coveted Ferrari Classiche. The fuel tanks were also replaced by an official Ferrari Dealer when the car was sold and has been in a private collection ever since, only to visit an official Ferrari dealer in a closed transporter March 2015 and 2016 for annual servicing. The weave of the composite materials seen through the body panels is quite breath-taking. A rare opportunity to own a two owner only example of this iconic supercar which was first registered 3/4/90 and has only covered a total of 4,472km (2,778 miles).
