The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car built from 1987 to 1992, with the LM and GTE race car versions continuing production until 1994 and 1996 respectively.
As the successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO, it was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary. This was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was Ferrari’s fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car for sale.
The Ferrari F40 is a legend, an icon, an automotive masterpiece. Or so I’m told — I’ve never reviewed one, until now. In this review, I’m telling you why the Ferrari F40 is worth $1.3 million.
Ferrari F40 Body and interior
The body was an entirely new design by Pininfarina featuring panels made of kevlar, carbon fiber, and aluminum for strength and low weight. This intense aerodynamic testing employed. Weight was further minimized through the use of a plastic windshield and windows. The cars did have moderate air conditioning, but had no sound system, door handles, glove box, leather trim, carpets, or door panels. The first 50 cars produced had sliding Lexan windows. Later cars were fitted with wind down windows.
