Say it ain’t so…

Thankfully, nether driver was seriously injured and the F40 is likely salvageable which is huge. Since with only 1,315 ever built and a historical inflation rated price tag of $843,616 USD this is no ordinary Ferrari. The F40 is one of the most valuable and iconic Ferrari’s of all time as it was designed to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary and was the last model personally approved by the godfather himself Enzo Ferrari. At the time of its launch in 1987 the F40 was one of the most powerful and expensive cars ever built.  Designed as a street legal race car with a 478 horsepower 2.9-liter twin turbo V8 that resulted in a 0-62 mph time of just 3.8 seconds.  Adding to its epic folklore were claims that the F40 had slightly more horsepower than Ferrari stated. It truly is one of the world’s best cars ever produced and hopefully we don’t lose any more of these rare beauties.
