The initial production run of the Ferrari F40 was limited to about 400 examples. Even with its stratospheric price tag, the production continued until 1,315 examples were built by the time production ended in 1991. American Ferrari enthusiasts, however, had to wait until 1990 for the opportunity to own one. U.S.-specification cars traded at premiums of many thousands of dollars above their list price. Over a three-year period, only 213 examples of the F40 were built for the U.S. market.
This particular example has fewer than 300 miles from new, and it is still unregistered and listed on its Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO). As the 94th of the 213 U.S.-specification F40s, it was produced during October 1990. It has had just three owners since new, with the original owner being the famed American automotive executive and business leader Lee Iacocca.
In 2012, this vehicle was offered for sale at RM Auction's sale in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $650,000 - $750,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $781,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
