The car was made to celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary in style. Inspired by the Formula 1 of the time, it was so popular that, despite the list price was already very high and within the 374 million lire (about 431 thousand euros currently taking inflation into account), in the unofficial market Ferrari reached prices close to 2 billion lire (2.3 million euros).

A record-breaking supercar

By opening the hood you can admire the incredible 2.9 V8. This engineering jewel of over 30 years ago was able to unleash 478 CV at 7,000 rpm and a couple of 577 Nm through a 5-speed manual gearbox. Weighing just 1,100 kg, the Ferrari was one of the fastest supercars of the time. The F40 was able to sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds and touch the 326 km / h.
