Making its appearance as an automotive icon for car enthusiasts of all kinds, the Ferrari F40 boasts a design and performance that continues to make an impression on today’s industry. The production life of 1,315 chassis was executed at the factory in Maranello, Italy, with only 213 examples being delivered directly to the United States. The Italian prancing horse professionals at Cauley Ferrari of Detroit are proud to showcase this iconic 1990 Ferrari F40 as part of its extensive inventory of exclusive and collectible exotic cars. This F40 was first delivered to the Official Ferrari Dealer Radicci Automobil S.r.l., located in Bari, Italy in June of 1990. Later that year the F40 was exported to Japan, where the first official Japanese VIP client took ownership at the time.
This pristine example retains all of its original paint and glass. The carbon weave from the F40s Carbon Fiber/Kevlar body shows prominently through the Rosso Corsa paint which is always a highly sought-after trait collectors look for in an F40. The red on red color combination contrasts beautifully against the classic factory chrome five-spoke motorsport wheels, which have also become a timeless design.
The interior proves to be in outstanding condition as well, presenting itself just as it would have rolling off the production line in 1990. The dash, gauges, pedals, and steering wheel show very well and proof that the car was always stored in a climate-controlled condition throughout its lifetime. This F40 comes with its original toolkit in pouch, owners manuals in the familiar beige leather pouch, a can of factory-branded fix-a-flat, several Japanese service records, and copies of the most recent service records for work performed by Ferrari of Newport Beach.
At the heart of the legendary F40 lies Ferrari’s famous 2.9-Liter Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine, responsible for delivering over 471 horsepower and 426 foot-pounds of torque to its rear Pirelli P-Zero tires. Being a driver-oriented Italian supercar, the Ferrari F40 manages its power through a traditional six-speed manual transmission, taking its top speed up to 199mph.
