With just 1315 examples of the Ferrari F40 produced, the Italian supercar is undeniably iconic and exceptionally potent. Of the 1315 F40s which exist, there is one which is particularly noteworthy, the Ferrari F40 Barchetta Beurlys and it was recently filmed on track.
It is based around the extreme Ferrari F40 LM and is owned by Belgium billionaire and car collector Jean Blaton operating under the pseudonym Jean Beurlys. The car was converted into a Barchetta by Tony Gillet with the double-wishbone suspension also being replaced with a coilover system similar to the Ferrari Enzo and FXX. Additionally, a modified exhaust system was created with the pipes exiting just in front of the rear wheels.
As the Ferrari F40 Barchetta Beurlys is based around the F40 LM, its 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine has been heavily upgraded from the road car’s 478 hp and 576 Nm outputs. While the standard F40 LM delivers 700 hp, further engine modifications to the Barchetta result in a total of 760 hp.
