The Ferrari F 40 was built to mark Enzo Ferrari’s 40th year as a car manufacturer in 1988. However, it was also intended, from its injection, to represent the super car in its ultimate form. It was a great way to celebrate Enzo’s birthday, and an even greater way to celebrate the super car. Outwardly the shape owed something to the contemporary 328 GTB. The F 40 was much wider and more aggressive though, with a rear hoop spoiler and an uncompromisingly chopped tail. It was nothing if not head turner. Based on the floor pan of the 288 GTO and retaining the classic tubular steel frame chassis, it made exclusive use of weight saving composite materials. It also featured all the latest Formula One turbo charging technology, applied to a special, short stroke 3 liter engine. Twin IHI turbochargers were used a top speed of 201 mph (332 km/H). Not only was this car sensationally fast, but it was also incredibly noisy. The cabin, bereft of carpets, acted just like a sound box. The stripped cut, rather austere interior further hammered home the fact that when you got down to it, the F 40 was really a racing car for the road, although the ironically the cars were never raced in anger.
Many, in fact, were brought as investments. Such was the demand for the car that Ferrari more than doubled the original intended production run to 1200 cars. Production lasted until 1992; this was the best and most unique car of its time. It has an engine of V8, 2936cc with a power of 478 bhp. It has five speed manual transmission with independent suspension.
