1992 Ferrari F40

The Ferrari F40 was the first production car to break the 200 mph barrier. They were built in celebration of the companies 40th birthday and was the very last model that Enzo Ferrari personally oversaw before his passing. Carbon fiber was used for its chassis and bodywork, resulting in a lightweight 2,400 lbs.

Introduced in 1988, the F40 exemplified Ferrari's traditional values and relied on enormous power, a race-bred suspension, large tires, wonderful aerodynamics, and low weight to achieve its impressive level of performance. It was a development of the limited-production 288GTO and came with twin IHI turbochargers to produce 478 horsepower. A factory tuning kit was available which could help increase horsepower by 200 bhp.

Using the company's Formula 1 experience, the F40 had a one-piece plastic molding, and the body was bonded to the tubular steel chassis. Removable panels, doors, boot lid, and bonnet were comprised of carbon fiber. Styling was by Pininfarina and further developed in a wind-tunnel along with the latest aerodynamic aids in the form of a dam-shaped nose and high rear aerofoil. The result was an impressively low drag coefficient of just 0.34.

The interior had body-contoured seats, sliding Plexiglas windows, and was devoid of trim and carpeting.
