Its name owed nothing to chance, the 40 corresponding to the age of the company. For the F40, Ferrari had concentrated all its know-how and it was getting closer to a race car adapted to the road: its V8 double turbo developed 478 hp at 7,000 rpm, it had suspensions of incredible efficiency and a light and rigid chassis thanks to the composite materials also used for the hoods, doors and roof.

One year after the presentation of the F40, Enzo Ferrari died at the age of 90. Before disappearing, he still had time to give birth to his latest uncompromising masterpiece, the F40.
The Ferrari F40 celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017 & still remains one of the most popular supercars of all time.
It was one of the very first sports cars to be able to respond to the name of “supercar”. After the 288 GTO and then the GTO Evoluzione which served as a rolling laboratory, the Ferrari F40 was launched in 1987 to claim the status of “The best Ferrari car in the world”.
