478 bhp, 2,936 cc DOHC 90-degree V-8 engine with twin turbochargers and Weber-Marelli engine management and fuel injection, five-speed manual transmission, tubular steel and carbon composite chassis, front and rear independent double-wishbone suspension with Koni hydraulic shock absorbers and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,450 mm

The very first production car to top 200 mph, the F40 was a landmark car in Ferrari’s history for a variety of reasons. It was created in celebration of the company’s 40th birthday and would be the very last Ferrari that Enzo Ferrari personally oversaw before his passing. Looking to its Formula 1 team for inspiration, Ferrari sought to make the F40 as lightweight as possible, pioneering the use of carbon fibre for its chassis and bodywork, resulting in a svelte 2,400 pounds. In addition to its top speed of 201.4 mph, the F40 could sprint from 0–60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and rocket through the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds.

Originally outfitted with catalytic converters and a non-adjustable suspension, chassis 91464 was delivered new to Dr Daniel Schick through Graber Automobile AG in Wichtrach, Switzerland, on 18 December 1991. Dr Schick resided in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but kept his F40 in Switzerland and Germany for his personal use and the use of his son living in Germany at the time. It was later sold to a Mr Goldschagg of Switzerland before passing to an owner in Munich, Germany, who registered the car on German plates M-WW 8833. During its time in Germany, the F40 was fitted with non-standard wheels, a new nose with slightly flared fender arches, and its suspension was upgraded.

The F40 had returned to its native Italy around 2007 and received its 30,000 kilometre service (with 26,761 kilometres showing) by Michelotto Giuliano & Co s.n.c in Padova that year. More recently, it has been serviced by Motor Service Srl, the official Ferrari dealership in Modena.

• Recentemente tagliandata presso la Motor Service Srl

La prima vettura di normale produzione a raggiungere i 320 Km/h, la F40 è stata, per molte ragioni, una delle pietre miliari della storia Ferrari. Creata per celebrare il 40° anniversario della società, diventerà l’ultimo modello ad essere deliberato da Enzo Ferrari, poco prima della sua morte. Ispirandosi alle soluzioni tecniche della Formula 1, la Ferrari si è impegnata per fare l’F40 il più leggera possibile, anticipando l’uso della fibra di carbonio per la realizzazione del telaio e della carrozzeria, ottenendo il risultato finale di una vettura pesante poco più di 1110 chili. In aggiunta alla sua velocità massima di 320 Km/h, la F40 è capace di passare da 0 a 100 Km/h in soli 3,8 secondi e di traguardare i 400 metri in 11,8 secondi.

Originalmente equipaggiato di catalizzatore e di sospensioni non regolabili, il telaio 91464 è stato consegnato nuovo in Svizzera, al Dr. Daniel Schick, tramite la concessionaria Graber Automobile AG, di Wichtrach, il 18 dicembre 1991. Il Dr. Schick, residente a Rio de Janeiro, Brasile, teneva comunque la sua F40 tra Germania e Svizzera, pronta per essere usata da lui o dal figlio, al tempo abitante in Germania. Successivamente è stata venduta, sempre in Svizzera, al Sig. Goldschagg poi seguito da un altro proprietario a Monaco, Germania, che l’ha targata M-WW 8833. Durante gli anni trascorsi in Germania, la macchina è stata equipaggiata con cerchioni non originali, un nuovo muso e passaruota leggermente allargati e le sospensioni sono state modificate.

L’F40 è tornata nella natia Italia verso il 2007, ed ha subito effettuato, a 26.761 chilometri, il tagliando dei 30.000 chilometri presso l’officina Michelotto Giuliano & Co. s.n.c. di Padova. Più recentemente è stata tagliandata presso la Motor Service srl, officina ufficiale Ferrari e Maserati di Modena.
