About the '87 F40

The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door coupé sports car produced by Ferrari from 1987 to 1992 as the successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO. It was designed to compete with vehicles such as the Porsche 959 and Lamborghini Countach; and for Ferrari management this vehicle was a major statement piece.

Enzo Ferrari had recently turned 90 years old, and was keenly aware that time was not on his side. He wanted his new sports car to serve as his final statement-maker, a vehicle encompassing the best in track-developed technology and capable of being a showcase for what the Ferrari engineers were capable of creating. The company's upcoming 40th anniversary provided just the right occasion for the car to debut. As Enzo had predicted it would be, the F40 was the last car to be commissioned by him before his death.

From 1987 to 1989 it held the title as the world's fastest street-legal production car,and during its years of production, was Ferrari's fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car. The car had no traction control, and was one of the few to utilize turbochargers.
