1990 Ferrari F40 Coupe

  • Designed by Pininfarina
  • Chassis Number: ZFFMN34A2L0085596
The Ferrari F40 had a race-bred tubular space-frame chassis, fully independent suspension with double wishbones, coil-over shock absorbers, and ventilated disc brakes with four-piston calipers at each corner. The body panels were comprised of Kevlar, carbon fiber and aluminum, reducing the weight of the vehicle by 20%, while increasing structural rigidity threefold over the car it replaced, 288 GTO. Mounted mid-ship was a 2.9-liter V-8 engine offering 478 horsepower at 7,000 RPM, with the assistance of twin IHI turbochargers and twin Behr air-to-air intercoolers.

Initial production estimates called for around 400 examples, but market demand was so overwhelming that 1,315 F40s were built by the time production ceased in 1991. American Ferrari enthusiasts had to wait until 1990 for an opportunity to own one, and just 213 examples made it to the United States.

This US-delivered example from 1990 has traveled less than 2,600 miles from new. It was purchased new by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, who owned the car until 2003.
