Ferrari is known for creating some of the most eye-catching and impressive performance-driven vehicles. Today they are back in the news feed with a look at the fastest road-going Ferrari F40 ever made. This particular ride is a 1989 ‘non-cat, non-adjust’ F40, which was converted to ‘Competizione’ spec in 1993 by Cavallino Tuning in Holland. The vehicle is slated to hit the auction block soon, going up for sale through RM Sotheby’s.
This is far from your typical F40, boasting revamped suspension, brakes, and bodywork, including a yellow paint scheme before being raced in the mid-90s. In ’95, an upgraded roll cage and full suspension upgrade were added by G-Tex in the UK in collaboration with Michelotto. The car boasts a Stack instrumentation system and air jacks, while the engine was retooled to push out over 700 bph. The car was sold again in 1997 to Ferrari collector and racing driver Michel Osprey.
The current Grigio Nardo livery was added during a bare-metal restoration and service by Zanasi Group, Tailor-Made editions, and Icona series cars. The car is rated between 700 bhp and nearly 1,000 bhp, depending on its set-up.
Take a closer look at this impressive machine in the images below and head over to RM Sotheby’s to find out more. The car will be up for sale at a private sale during its display at Monterey Car Week. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more outstanding automobiles coming very soon.
