The Ferrari F40 is a car that doesn't really need an introduction, the last car manufactured by Ferrari under the direction of its founder, Enzo, the F40 was everything Ferrari could muster for a Supercar of the 80's and the name was to celebrate Ferrari's 40th Anniversary. At the time it was the fastest road car in the world with an official top speed of 202 MPH.
Presented initially in 1987, the F40 incorporated the use of extensive Carbon Fibre and composite in its construction to add rigidity to the chassis whilst at the same time saving weight, 1,100 Kilos to be exact, and with 478 BHP and 425 Lb Ft of torque its performance was, and in fact still is, like nothing else!
Weight saving continued throughout the car with only Air Conditioning as a creature comfort, no central locking, no electric windows or mirrors, not even carpet and on the earliest cars such as this example, a simple pull cable arrangement to open the door from the inside - this car was all about its performance and its driving experience.
The exposed bonded carbon fibre all over the interior of the F40 is an absolute delight, As is the feel through both the steering wheel and the seat.
Supplied new by New Car di Guido Zara and Co. of Villorba, Italy on 11th August 1990, this CAT, Non adjustable Suspension F40 spent all of its life with its original owner, with very little use, until it came to the UK in 2013.
Registered new to the owners Brother in Law, Gino Beraldo via Finleasing Italia, the vehicle's ownership was transferred to Mr Beraldo privately in 1994, although it always remained in the custody of the original keeper, Lorenzo Codello - changing ownership again for family reasons to Lorenzo's wife's name in 2009 - so 3 recorded keepers in Italy but actually one owner from new before arriving in the UK for registration to its only owner here on 16th May 2013.
Displaying a spectacular amount of weave on the bonnet, roof and rear spoiler, this particular F40 sports original paint in these areas and is genuinely delightful.

The interior looks almost new and virtually unworn.
