driver orientated supercars of all time. Over 1000 F40's were produced during it's lifespan. Built to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the company, the Ferrari F40 was, at the time, the fastest road going Ferrari ever produced.

The story goes that Enzo Ferrari himself wanted the F40 to have 500 horsepower, he ended up with 478 hp found @ 7000 rpm. The 2936 cc V8 was a derivation of the engine found in the Ferrari 288 GTO, complimented by larger twin turbochargers and an increase in boost pressure.
