Mechanic takes Ferrari F40 for joyride, crashes it image

Another example of the Ferrari F40 has been involved in a crash recently, in Houston, Texas.

Just as the Ferrari F40 is starting to sell on the second-hand market and at auctions for amounts in the zone of 1m USD, this particular example has been crashed. The exotic vehicle has been taken for a joyride by a mechanic while its owner was away in Europe. According to Wrecked Exotics, the model in question has been crashed due to excessive speed and its original tires have contributed to the incident too. Hopefully the supercar will be returned to its former glory because seeing it like this isn’t really helping anyone.

The Ferrari F40 has been produced in just 1,311 examples. The Maranello born supercar was assembled between 1987 and 1992 and it is probably one of the most iconic vehicles of its time, being responsible for an even hotter ride, the F50. The Ferrari F40 has been taking its power from a 2.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 478 HP (352 kW) at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 577 Nm (424 lb-ft), available at 4,000 rpm, sent to the wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. The rear mid-engined and rear-wheel drive supercar needed just 3.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and it could go up to a top speed of 323 km/h (201 mph).
