1991 Ferrari F40

Published By

For many Prancing Horse enthusiasts, the 1991 Ferrari F40 is the ultimate dream car. It is also extremely elusive and difficult to acquire. Ferrari only made a total of 1,311 F40 cars during its brief production window. If you own an F40, you usually hang on to it for a while if not forever. 

From time to time, an F40 occasionally finds its way to an auction. This particular Ferrari F40 is available for sale to the highest bidder through the reputable RM Sotheby’s. Now is your chance to add a gorgeous red F40 to your collection. It also just so happens to be a part of the Gran Turismo Collection.

Owning an F40 gives you access to a twin-turbo 2.9L V8 engine producing 478 horsepower with 425 pound-feet of torque. Try to resist the urge to sprint from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds behind the wheel of an F40. It’s impossible. 

All that power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. Remember, the engine is mid-mounted in this car providing you with vintage supercar driving dynamics. The exhaust note always sounds great in any F40 but this particular model features a straight-pipe exhaust system. That means this F40 roars. It is loud and it sounds nasty in a good way.

This F40 has only had two owners during its lifespan. It currently shows 48,511 kilometers on the odometer. That’s approximately 30,143 miles. Considering the 1991 Ferrari F40 has a top speed of 201 miles per hour, it should not take very long for the next owner to add a few more miles on this beauty.

As the final road-going supercar to receive Enzo Ferrari’s personal stamp of approval, the F40 is one of the most legendary cars the company has ever built. Whether you had a poster of an F40 or not, chances are it would be a dream come true to add this car to your collection. This is basically a street-legal race car but it will be gone as quickly as you could drive it away.

If you want to make sure you are the one driving away in this F40, you know what you have to do. Happy bidding.
