Ferrari made precious few US-spec F40s.
San Francisco Sports Cars presents for your consideration this amazing 1990 Ferrari F40. Wearing the timeless Rosso Corsa, this is one of the most sought-after production Ferraris. This particular example has been well-preserved, with a mere 7,331 miles showing on the odometer. Considering the condition of the exterior and interior, it’s obvious the previous owner went to great lengths to care for this car.
Anyone can look at the Ferrari F40 and tell it’s a special car. Elements like the large front splitter and rear wing, wedge-shaped front end, numerous vents, and that mesmerizing engine visible in the back window clearly indicate this car is all about performance.
Consider that the Ferrari F40 used what was modern Formula One technology to push the performance envelope, and you’ll understand why this car is so potent, even by today’s standards. It boasts a curb weight of under 2,900 pounds. A twin-turbo 2.9-liter V8 produces 478-horsepower, rocketing this ride from 0-60 mph in a little over 3 seconds. Not only is the F40 quick, it can also hit a top speed of over 200 mph, something most cars can’t do.
Of course, you need to consider the rareness of any F40. Ferrari made a mere 1,337 for global distribution. Just 213 were US spec, so precious few are available today. This particular one is well-documented so you can buy with confidence. The sellers states the last major service was in July of 2014. All maintenance/service records, as well as the original toolkit and owner’s manuals are being included in the sale.
The final project Enzo Ferrari himself oversaw, the Ferrari F40 was his swan song. That alone makes the car desirable by collectors and enthusiasts, but the fact it pushed the performance envelope and does so with such flair only helps make the F40 a legend. Exotic cars around the world continue to be impacted by the revolutionary, cutting-edge designs Enzo Ferrari introduced to the world before his death.
