1990 Ferrari F40 Coupe

  • Designed by Pininfarina
  • Chassis Number: ZFFMN34A0L0087041
The F40 was the most outlandish Ferrari of the late 1980s and the successor to the 288GTO.

Unveiled on July 21, 1987, the F40 was a racer for the street - built to commemorate Ferrari's 40th anniversary and the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. Using aerodynamic trickery, exotic componentry including Kevlar and reinforced carbon fiber sitting atop a steel-tube space-frame chassis, Plexiglass windows, and a 3-liter twin-turbo V-8 producing 478 horsepower; performance was mind-boggling - 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds and a claimed top speed of 201 mph. Inside the race car theme continued, though most cars were delivered with air conditioning. Sales continued through 1992 with a total of 1,315 produced.

This car carries serial number 87041 and is the 77th produced of 213 cars certified for U.S. delivery.
This Ferrari F40 has accumulated less than 1,600 miles since new. It is Assembly Number 03965 and was the 77th of 213 cars built for the United States market. It left the factory in Maranello on October 30th of 1990 and was delivered to Ronald Budworth of British Columbia, Canada. After Mr. Budworth encountered registration issues in Canada, the F40 was sent to Ferrari of Walnut Creek, California, where it was still listed for sale in 1993. The next known owner was David E. Walters who acquired the car by 2007. From there the car passed to Bentley Bellevue, in Washington state. In 2008, with just over 700 miles on the odometer, it was sold at auction for a world-record price at the time.

Steve White of Sarasota, Florida, was the high bidder. It remained in his car until 2013 with approximately 1,300 miles it was acuiqred by the current owner.
