A video with a classic Ferrari F40 accelerating has hit the web and it may be just what the doctor has ordered.
It may be long gone from production but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a hot ride anymore. In fact, it remains what may are considering to be the best supercar ever to have been produced in Maranello. We are talking about the Ferrari F40 which is being highlighted once again, this time with the help of another amateur video. The clip, which can be seen right after the jump, is showing us a red finished example of the exotic model accelerating on the highway.
Ferrari has been producing the F40 in just 1,311 units between 1987 and 1996. The model has been designed by Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti and this came in a two-door coupe body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The successor of the 288 GTO stood at 4,358 mm in length, 1,970 mm in width and 1,124 mm in height, riding on a 2,450 mm wheelbase and weighing just 1,100 kg. Under its hood this came with a 2.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine, capable of putting down a total of 471 HP (352 kW) and a peak torque of 577 Nm (424 lb-ft). Power was being sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. From 0 to 100 (62 mph), the F40 needed just 3.9 seconds and top speed stood at 323 km/h (201 mph).
