Instantly recognisable by its unique styling and huge rear spoiler the F40 was built to commemorate Ferrari's 40th birthday, the super car was designed to be lightweight and powerful. The F40 was a combination of exotic materials (at the time) such as Kevlar and Carbon-Fibre, enabling it to weigh in at approximately 1100kg.
A lot of cost and effort was spent in reducing the weight of this supercar, however, components such as the cast iron brake discs on each corner counteracted these efforts somewhat. Arguably this was to maintain the rawness of the 'race car for the road' design and was also evident in the lack of ABS and servo assisted braking.
As with the Bugatti Veyron the Ferrari F40 spent hours of development on it's aerodynamics to ensure as little as possible of the 477 bhp is wasted. It's 0.34 aerodynamic co-efficient was achieved by smoothing the underpan and by introducing height adjustable Koni suspension. The suspension also aided the cars superb stability and control to make the power manageable in extreme conditions on the track
To maximise the efficiency of it's aerodynamics the F40's power to weight ratio used a combination of a lightweight 2936cc V6 aluminium powerplant and two IHI turbos giving 426 lb/ft of torque to the rear wheels at about 4000rpm
This is one of the favourite cars of it's time for the gang at autosnout.com. This was the car that was the highlight of every car calendar of it's generation. Not as wacky looking as the Lamborghini Countach but definitely one of the most extreme looking Ferrari's ever built for production. Defined by it's distinctive rear spoiler, whilst massive seemed in perfect balance with the rest of the visual flow of the car.
Aggressive looks, A true supercar of its time, Top Speed is 201mph
Cast Iron brakes, Lack of Servo Assisted Braking, An expensive Toyota Supra?
