1991 Ferrari F40 For Sale by Auction

For sale in our forthcoming auction in Paris, on 17 June 2019:

Chassis n° ZFFGJ34B000089983
Engine n° 27649

- The last Enzo Ferrari masterpiece
- Service book, recent service
- 6823km from new

The F40 is known by enthusiasts as the last Ferrari designed and built under the direct supervision of Enzo Ferrari before he died. This radical car took up the concept of the Ferrari 288 GTO which, equipped with over 400 bhp and a very sporty chassis, was capable of over 300 km/h. This extraordinary machine, accessible to a lucky few, had made its mark in the realm of high performance cars and Ferrari was keen to keep this advantage over its competitors. 1987 was a good year to introduce a successor, being the 40th anniversary of Ferrari. And so this was the year that the F40 was presented to a group of 80 selected journalists, in the presence of Enzo Ferrari, Giovanni Battista Ruzelli (director general), engineer Materassi (project head) and Fioravanti (head of Pininfarina design and research). The name was chosen to mark the age of the enterprise. Ferrari poured all its resources into the F40 which was basically a race-car adapted for the road : its twin-turbo V8 developed 478 bhp at 7000 rpm, it had incredible suspension and a rigid, lightweight chassis made from composite materials that were also used for the boot, bonnet, doors and roof. In place of the standard five speed gearbox, the client could order a non-syncromesh racing version. Ground clearance could be set at three different heights: high, standard and high-speed. From 120 km/h the ground clearance reduced automatically, and could be re-set manually. In spite of ducts and cooling vents on the body for the twelve radiators (for the engine, turbos and transmission) and very wide tyres, it had an impressive drag coefficient of 0.34. The shape of the car, designed by Pininfarina, reflected the priority given to its function and aerodynamic efficiency, as seen in the large rear spoiler almost at roof level.
The F40 has a performance that is still breathtaking today. However in 1987, it was out of this world : the car had a top-speed of 324 km/h, and could cover a kilometre from a standing start in 21 seconds, a feat only achieved by a few hand-crafted cars. Originally, a production of 400 examples was planned, but driven by demand from buyers and investors, Ferrari built almost as many as the Daytona, some 1,300 examples. A year after the car was first presented, Enzo Ferrari passed away at the age of 90, having overseen the creation of his last uncompromising masterpiece, the F40.

The Ferrari F40 on offer was delivered new on 19 July 1991 by Motor spa in Modena to a certain Muratori Viller who lived in Modena. It was presented in Rosso Fer 300/9 with Stoffa Vigogna interior, the archetypal combination for an F40, and retains this livery today.
The car had a small number of owners in Italy before being bought by an important French collector from the south of France in 2011, when the odometer stood at just over 5 500 km. As with every car in his collection, this supercar was regularly maintained by a well-known specialist Ferrari garage : Colombo Challenge. In 2011, when it had covered 5 800 km, the belts were changed. Again during a service in 2018, at 6 390 km, the timing belts were changed. The mileage today stands at 6 823 km, as our collector prefers to drive his 355 Challenge or his 430 Scuderia, and prefers to enjoy the aesthetic qualities of the F40, parked in front of an Enzo in his garage. This exceptional car comes with its service book, recent invoices and toolkit. It is equipped with an Orbisoud exhaust amplifying the outrageous sound of the twin-turbo V8 engine. Coming with a European history, low mileage and limited number of owners, this Ferrari F40 is in superb condition, and is undeniably one of the best examples on the market. As Enzo Ferrari's final masterpiece, it will remain forever in Maranello history as one of his most important and remarkable models.
