Ferrari F40 grabs 1.12m EUR at auction image

This impressive Ferrari F40 has managed to find a new owner who had to pay no less than 1.12 million EUR for it.

The Ferrari F40 is considered by many to be the one of the best supercars ever produced and the hottest one to be born in Maranello. This is also the last vehicle signed by the company’s founder Enzo Ferrari but, even so, it fails to attract multi-million dollar bids unlike other rare Ferraris but this may soon change, as the prices of these exotic models have skyrocketed. This particular model, born in 1992, has managed to find a new owner, as it has been auctioned by Coys recently, at an event held at the Nurburgring.

The new owner of the exotic vehicle had paid no less than 1.12 million euros for it, or the equivalent of 1.23 million USD. The Ferrari F40 has come to life between 1987 and 1992 and it has been assembled in just 1,311 units. The supercar has been designed by Pininfarina and offered in a single body style, a two-door coupe, with a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The F40 had a 2.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine under its hood, rated at 478 HP (352 kW) and 577 Nm (424 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,000 rpm, sent to the RWD through a 5-speed manual transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needed 3.9 seconds and top speed stood at 323 km/h (201 mph).
