Gathering Of Ferrari F40s Smashes World Record At Silverstone

Follow Viknesh

It’s hard to believe that the Ferrari F40 supercar is now 25 years old, and celebrating the occasion was a record gathering of the supercars at the Silverstone race track in the UK.

Just as they did for the F40’s 20th birthday back in 2007, F40 owners from all over the globe descended upon the British circuit, with their cars in tow, to attend this past weekend’s Silverstone Classic.

The last time a total of 40 F40s were present but this year the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain has smashed that record by organizing a fleet of 60 cars.

First introduced in 1987 to honor Ferrari’s 40th anniversary, the mid-engined F40 was the final car commissioned by the Prancing Horse’s legendary founder Enzo Ferrari. As such, it was specifically designed to serve as a dramatic and lasting testament to his track-developed, high performance supercar ethos.

Accordingly, it was the world’s first 200 mph road car when it hit the scene during the late ‘80s, and despite the passing of more than two decades it is still rated by many to be the finest supercar of all time.

The Ferrari F40 was built for only two years, during which time a total of 1,315 examples were built, and most are believed to be still in existence.
