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.
This fantastic example of the collectors preference F40 - a non-cat, non-adjust car, was supplied new by Autodiffusion S.A of Geneva to its first owner in October 1989. A lifelong-Ferrari enthusiast, he would work tirelessly in his small family-run garage in Geneva and save continuously for many years before amassing a then significant collection of Ferrari’s. After his tragic and untimely passing in 1990, the car was stored within the family collection and later sold with the rest of his collection at auction in 2003.
Having covered just 3,078 kilometres from new at the time of the auction, the car was ultimately purchased by a friend who would keep the car for 9 years in his memory.
