Arguably one of the best supercars ever manufactured – the F40 has it all. Following on from the 288 GTO – Ferrari saw popularity with this vehicle and decided to develop the F40 as an exclusive road supercar rather than developing it for track racing purposes. The F40 is so-named to celebrate 40 years of Ferrari & it was actually the final Ferrari that was approved by Enzo Ferrari as he passed away a year later in 1988.

F40 Key Features:

  • Ferrari claimed that the F40 exceeded 200mph.
  • Current price tag: £1.2m / $1.5m
  • 2.9-litre twin-turbo V8 Engine, 471bhp
  • 5-Stick Manual Transmission – RW Drive

Ferrari F50 – Produced 1995 to 1997

Following the hype and interest that the F40 generated for the 40th birthday celebrations – with their 50-year birthday approaching – Ferrari decided to develop the new and improved F50. It definitely is more powerful on paper and offers several improvements but it’s not as sought after as the F40. Because of the limited run (Ferrari produced 3.7x less F50s) the price tag of the F50 remains similar.

F50 Key Features:

  • Ferrari claimed the F50 could reach 202mph.
  • Current Price tag £1.3m / $1.65m
  • 4.7-litre V12 Engine, 513bhp
  • 6-Stick Manual Transmission – RW Drive
