Ferrari F40 – 30 years

The model that was created to mark 40 years of Ferrari road-car production celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2017 – a sobering thought for anyone who was around at the time of the F40’s launch. With an incredible 471bhp produced by its 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the F40 was the most powerful Ferrari of the time, as well as the most expensive. Top speed was a claimed 201mph, with 60mph reached in just 4.5 seconds. An anticipated production run of 400 cars was soon abandoned thanks to customer demand, with a total of 1,311 F40s built by the time production ceased in 1992.
