The iconic Ferrari F40, one of the last true sports cars. The rawness of this car captivated enthusiasts and Ferrari owners alike in 1987. Many still argue that it’s the best and most sought-after supercar built to date. Aside from the Lamborghini Countach, the F40 was the most common car to appear on the bedroom walls of aspiring supercar owners.
As the successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO, it was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by the great Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car that Ferrari sold to the public.
With 1,311 Ferrari F40s produced in its nine-year run, it’s rare to even see one, let alone have the opportunity to buy one.
This special F40, titled and specced for the U.S. market, was brought into Canada by ZR Auto’s own Zahir Rana in 1997. The one-owner red beauty, a 1992 model, was one of the last F40s built, making it one of the most mechanically-sound and sought-after models.
From the outside, this incredible Ferrari F40 is distinguishable from the standard American-spec model. With its Euro-spec front-end conversion, magnesium speed line 18” wheels and Michelotto LM-spec rear wing, it certainly stands out from the crowd. Aside from these features, this F40 remains factory pristine.
On the performance side, this F40 has been upgraded to LM-spec by Edo Competition, pushing out nearly 545 hp and 465 lb ft of torque at 29 psi.Mechanical upgrades include a 2936 cc Twin Turbo 32 valve courtesy of LM-Spec IHI turbos (by Ferrari Motorsports), mapped for 29 psi.
A high-flow stainless Tubi exhaust system, upgraded Tial wastegates and blow-off valves, dry sumped lubrication system, Weber-Marelli upgraded injectors and Tubi exhaust round off the F40’s impressive performance package.
On the inside, this rare Ferrari comes with LM-spec seats, complimenting the factory interior.
Sitting on the lightweight Speedline wheels are Hoosier R6 R-compound tires, measuring 13” x 18” 335/30zr18 on the rear and 9“ x18” 245/35 zr18 on the front.
Providing the stopping power for this road-hungry machine are massive four-piston Brembo vented & cross-drilled brake rotors, measuring 355 mm on the front and 355 mm on the rear.
With an asking price of $1.295 Million USD, this one-owner Ferrari F40 is certainly well-priced for the market. With only 15,400 miles on the odometer and an active title, this F40 is certain to impress its next owner. Also included with the car are the stock 17” Ferrari wheels along with another set of 17″ HRE wheels.
The Ferrari F40 has been kept in a heated showroom and has been meticulously serviced since day 1. All service records are available. It had a brand new clutch installed recently, with zero miles on it. This car is absolutely perfect, and ready to go. The car is cleared for worldwide sale, and can be registered anywhere in the world.
