A 1984 model was the latest vehicle to stop into Jay Leno's Garage, and the owner and the car have a pretty neat history. According to the owner, he begged a local sports car dealership for a job in the 1980s to work on and surround himself with the cars he loved. With some persistence, the dealer finally decided to hire him. One day, a white Ferrari 308 GTB showed up...

  • Ferrari F40 Tribute by Samir Sadikhov

    Ferrari's F40 is without doubt an icon. Its wedge shape and pop-up lights perfectly encapsulate automotive design of the 1980s, when it was launched, and unlike many cars of the era, there's performance on hand to back up the looks. The F40 was also the last vehicle to earn the personal stamp of approval from Enzo Ferrari, and it's a high-water mark for all things supercar. This has inspired automotive designer Samir Sadikhov to pen an F40 for today, and the design is impressive even though some of the proportions could be worked on.
