A black version of the Ferrari F40, which has been restored, has managed to find a new owner during the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The winning bidder on the Ferrari F40 auction has added the restored black finished supercar to his collection recently, after the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, after paying no less than 643,500 USD for it. The model has been purchased by Reggie Jackson, originally, and it was restored after starting its life as a red finished one. The supercar has been crashed with just 7,148 miles on the odometer and it was completely repaired and transformed by the guys at Gas Monkey Garage.

The Ferrari F40 has been produced in just 1,315 units, between 1987 and 1992, and it was put together in Maranello, being designed by Pininfarina. The supercar was offered in a single body style, a two-door coupe, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The model stands at 4,358 mm in length, 1,970 mm in width, 1,124 mm in height and with a 2,450 mm long wheelbase. Power to it is being provided by a 2.9 liter turbocharged V8 engine, which is capable of producing no less than 478 HP (357 kW) and 577 Nm (424 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,000 rpm, sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the F40 needed just 3.9 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph).
