Ferrari's 201 mph F40 is the definitive supercar and has a formidable reputation alongside the 250 GTO as possibly the best road Ferrari built to date. With the F40, Pininfarina produced an era-defining creation, one that even today is instantly recognisable by old and young enthusiasts alike. F40's were closely derived from the experimental GTO Evoluzione and the road-going 288 GTO (that the F40 replaced). The design features a tubular steel chassis with bonded composite inserts, most notably around the sills and floor pan, The 2,936 cc motor produces approximately 500 bhp at 7,000 rpm with the help of two water-cooled IHI turbochargers running 1.1 bar of boost. At 1,202 kg, the F40 had, and still has, a phenomenal power-to-weight ratio. Shatteringly fast by any comparison (especially for 1988), the F40 can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and hit 201 mph flat out making it the first production car to surpass this mystical boundary.
A remarkable example, this F40 was supplied new to Switzerland to Marc Senn. Registering cars without catalytic converters in Switzerland at the time was an issue which meant that car would remain undriven and garaged. The car changed hands in the 2000s to Dr. Dario Sclabas who once more, would not drive the car more than a handful of kilometres.
In 2018 the car was purchased with 1,354 Kms by the current owner via Carugati of Geneva. Ahead of export to the USA, the car was brought to DK Engineering for a major inspection and comprehensive service of all perished items. Both for the continued preservation and affording the opportunity to drive the car, the works carried out by DK totalled £48,000 and included; fuel tanks, cambelts, replacement of all major seals and gaskets, fuel pump, water pump and the fitment of a fire suppression system. During it’s time in the UK, the car was inspected and received its Ferrari red book Classiche certification. After completion of this work, the car was shipped to USA with taxes paid and has only done 273 Kms since.
