Ferrari F40

  • 1987 Ferrari F40 LM

    It's hard to top the Ferrari F40, but the F40 LM race car headed to the RM Sotheby's Paris auction in February makes a convincing effort. This particular F40 LM has an interesting history. It was originally built as a pre-production car but was sold to former Le Mans and IMSA driver Rene Herzog in early 1992. Herzog was the man who shipped the car off for the LM-spec conversion, which included a larger turbocharger, advanced fuel injection, bigger intercoolers, and weight reduction. The F40 LM weighs only 2,314 pounds and produces an astounding 700-plus horsepower. After the LM conversion was...

The F40 was also the last vehicle to earn the personal stamp of...

  • Freshly restored Ferrari F40 burnt to a crisp

    The Ferrari F40 is iconic. The Ferrari F40 is rare. The Ferrari F40 is extremely valuable. This particular Ferrari F40 is no longer quite as valuable. This car, according to Motor1, was being driven just after it received a full restoration when it decided to self immolate. These pictures were taken at a scrapyard in England, but we have no information on the owner or how the car caught fire. According to Hagerty, the current average value for a Ferrari F40 is $1.4 million. I can't fathom what a full restoration would cost on such a machine, but I imagine it's both extensive and costly.
