LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1992 Ferrari F40
The Ferrari F40 was produced from 1987 to 1992 to celebrate the company’s 40th birthday and build the ultimate supercar. It was originally commissioned to be built by the late Enzo Ferrari himself. It was to be his last great contribution to automotive world. He wanted a car that would combine the latest cutting-edge race technology to produce the closest thing to a race car for the road the world would have ever seen. With a 2.9 litre, twin turbocharged V8, weighing less than 2,500 lbs, he certainly accomplished his goal. Capable of over 200 mph and 0-60 mph times of 3.8 seconds, it still remains one of the fastest production street cars, all with minimal use of electronic gadgetry such as traction and stability control.
With the first European cars being offered in 1987, it wasn’t until 1990 that Ferrari offered the F40 to the U.S. market. By the end of production in 1992, just 213 were sold to owners in the United States. While most F40’s left Maranello in left-hand drive and finished in traditional Rosso Corsa, a handful of changes were made over the course of the production run. The earliest cars had no catalytic converters and a non-adjustable suspension, while the latest cars had both catalytic converters and adjustable suspension. Ferrari made one concession to creature comfort for U.S.-delivery F40s: air conditioning was fitted as standard equipment.
This beautiful USA delivered example has traveled a mere 9,900 miles since new. It is finished as they all were in its original Rosso Corsa Red paint. It was sold new at Walnut Creek Ferrari in Walnut Creek, California on July 10th,1992. This car has been collector owned its entire life and maintained extensively by authorized Ferrari dealers. It is also the last year of production, in which they made the fewest and are certainly the most collectible. This gorgeous F40 has been recently put through the Ferrari Classiche certification (pending) and is accompanied with its tools and manuals.
The rarity, terrific overall condition, combined with the extreme Ferrari styling and innovation, this car remains an incredible collector car. As a 1992 low-mileage and USA spec F40s are becoming increasingly difficult to find, the offering of this example is all the more significant. For the enthusiast wanting to acquire the most iconic supercar of the 80s/90s for their collection, there can be no better choice.
