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.
DK Engineering have completed over 150 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 the leading F40 specialists in the world.
Amongst all those F40s is this particular example which has previously been sold by DK twice. It is the collector's preference being "Non-Cat" and "Non-Adjust" and was delivered new to Belgian racing driver Pierre Dieudonné via Ferrari dealer Garage Francorchamps s.a. Brussels. Pierre exercised the car sparingly throughout his lengthy ownership. Remarkably Pierre remained the sole owner of the F40 until its purchase by DK in May 2010 by which time it had covered just under 10,000 Kms.
Once in the United Kingdom DK Engineering subjected the car to a comprehensive major service including cambelts followed by Classiche Certification before it passed on to only its second private owner from new. DK Engineering would continue to maintain the car with no expense spared throughout their ownership before we again sold the car for the second time to its third owner in May 2012. In February 2013 it received a thorough service including cambelts, and more importantly later that year in August, was fitted with replacement fuel tanks.
In January 2014 it was purchased by its fourth owner who enlisted Meridien Modena to maintain the car with no expense spared during his ownership. In November 2016 it received a comprehensive service including cambelts and most recently, in December 2017 it received an annual service by Graypaul Ferrari at 11,892 kms.
Today this exceptional example has covered under 11,900 kms from new and presents exceptionally well due to the outstanding level of care it has received throughout its life; most importantly the cars paintwork retains a highly visible "weave", this being an almost mythical quality that not all F40s possess but so many seek to own a car with. It is accompanied by its original books, leather pouch, spare key, history file and "red book" Classiche binder. This F40 is UK road registered and ready to be used and enjoyed immediately by the next owner with viewings available at our showroom based just outside London.
