The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door coupé, built from 1987 to 1992. Its predecessor was the Ferrari 288 GTO, and it was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary. The F40 was also the last Ferrari personally approved by Enzo Ferrari – Il Commendatore – before he died on 14 August 1988.
At the time of its unveiling in 1987, the F40 was the fastest, most powerful and most expensive Ferrari ever produced for private and road use.
In early 1984, some engineers had secretly begun development of an evolution model of the 288 GTO intended to compete against the Porsche 959 in FIA Group B. However, before the 1986 season, the FIA decided to abolish the Group B category, and Enzo Ferrari was left with five 288 GTO Evoluzione models and no series in which to compete with them. However, although Enzo was renowned for building road cars with the sole purpose of financing his racing cars, Il Commendatore had a desire to build one of the world’s best sports cars for road use before he died – and he was well aware that his demise was just around the corner. Customers had been saying that the later models were becoming too plush and luxurious, so enthusiasts met their match in the F40. It became one of the most spectacular sports cars for road use ever built. Pure mechanics – no computers, power steering or any other frills.
This car was previously owned by Klaas Bruinsma, a Dutch drug lord.
