Note: Prices stated are linked to market prices in Japan, some rare pieces are more expensive than regular price

Ferrari F40 was the successor of the Ferrari 288 GTO (or just Ferrari GTO as it’s more correctly to say) and it was developed in the late 80s.

Production started in 1987 and continued to 1992. The name F40 was given to commemorate the 40-th anniversary of Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the company, wanted the F40 to be his last and most ultimate project. And so it was.

The F40 used a 2.9 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine developing 471 hp. With a curb weight of only 1,100 kg the F40 was the speed king of its time. 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) was done in only 3.8 seconds. Flat out it was breaking 200 mph (320 km/h) – the first road legal production car to do that.

It is known that no two F40s are the same. Ferrari used it as a Research and Development project and constantly changed things on it to make it better and better. So while they all do look and perform similarly they all have their own unique DNA so to speak. A truly amazing and fantastic car which deserves a proper representation in diecast form.
