Ferrari's 201mph F40 is the definitive supercar and has a formidable reputation alongside the 250 GTO as possibly the best road Ferrari built to date. With the F40 Pininfarina produced an era defining creation, one that even today is instantly recognisable by old and young enthusiasts alike. F40's were closely derived from the experimental GTO Evoluzione's and the road 288 GTO (that the F40 replaced). The design features a tubular steel chassis with bonded composite inserts, most notably around the sills and floor pan, The 2936cc motor produces approximately 500bhp at 7000rpm with the help of two water-cooled IHI turbochargers running 1.1bar of boost - at 1,202kg the F40 had a and still has a phenomenal power-to-weight ratio. Shatteringly fast by any comparison (especially for 1988), the F40 can sprint from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds and hit 201mph flat out making it the first production car to surpass this mystical boundary.
Whilst the GTO had pioneered the use of composite panels, the F40 was the first whose bodywork was constructed entirely from such materials. Comprising of eleven panels made from Nomex, Kevlar and Carbon composite with a heavily ventilated Plexiglas rear windscreen. The F40 was a landmark not just on account of its crushing performance and stunning looks, but it was fittingly the last ever car presented by Enzo Ferrari, this taking place at Maranello in June 1987, 14 months before the great man's death. From 1991 onwards cars were fitted with catalytic convertors to meet ever tightening legislation and at this time adjustable suspension became an option. Production was discontinued in 1992 after 1,311 examples had been completed in five years (600 or so being bound for the USA and being noticeably different to their lighter and faster European cousins), the F40 was only ever available from Ferrari in left-hand drive and presented in Rosso Corsa. (Approximately 7 examples were converted to RHD for the Sultan of Brunei).
DK Engineering have completed over 140 sales of this iconic supercar. Our workshops have maintained approximately 90 different examples at various points in their life over the past twenty five years. With this we are generally acknowledged as one of the leading F40 specialists in Europe.
This UK supplied example was delivered via Maranello Concessionaires on the 8th of May 1991 to its first private owner Mr Robs Lamplough located in London (a former of owner of a 250GTO). It is one of just 58 UK supplied "Cat" cars with an MPH speedo from new. It was later exported to Germany where it remained with its sole German owner until early 2014. Whilst in Germany it received several services despite the low mileage covered.
DK subsequently sourced and sold this fine example to a long standing client of ours (the third owner) in August 2014 and at the time of sale carried out a most comprehensive major service including cambelts and replacement fuel tanks at 11,521 Miles. During its most recent tenure it has covered a limited mileage and today has covered just 12,619 Miles and when not being used has been stored in DK Engineering's state of the art storage facility. Most recently in June 2017 it has received an extensive major service including cambelts. This superb F40 is UK road registered and ready to be used and enjoyed immediately, located at our showrooms just outside London.
