F40. Just mentioning the name instills the perfect balance of excitement and fear! It is impossible not to get carried away with superlatives that the era defining supercar justifiably deserves and has been awarded over the years. Hardened journalists get misty eyed when remembering its launch, though incredibly it still ranks in the top of their ‘wish lists’ some 30 years later!!
One of Pininfarina’s most recognizable shapes ever penned, the F40 was presented in 1987 to celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s 40 years of car production. Poignantly the last ever car he showed before his passing some 14 months later. Developed from the limited-production 288GTO, the F40 was a two-seater, mid-engined coupé that mounted its V8 power unit longitudinally in the chassis (rather than transversely like the 308/ 328) a layout that greatly simplified the accommodation of the twin water-cooled IHI turbochargers. Enlarged from the 288GTO’s 2,855cc to 2,936cc for the F40, the four-cam, 32-valve motor produced 478bhp at 7,000rpm, some 20 percent up on the 288 which propelled the F40 to break the magical 200 mph.
Whilst the GTO had pioneered the use of composite panels, the F40 was the first whose bodywork was constructed entirely from such materials. Comprising eleven panels made from Nomex, Kevlar and Carbon composite with a heavily ventilated Plexiglas rear windscreen.
