    Great vid. Car looks bn.
    If I could ever own an F40, Id drive the snot
    out of it. The people who buy/sell cars for simply
    the money aspect of it miss the point of owning
    and enjoying them. I read about a guy in Japan who has
    an F40 in his living room. What fun is that?

    Thanks [emoji106]

    I completely agree with you, I filmed a F40 LM in July, the car only had 400km on the clock, what a waste, they only made 19 of those cars. If I had one, I would drive it all the time, it would not be an investment.

    Can remember when I was at School when this came out in the 1980's. It was the first road car to do 200mph? It looks Awesome!!!
    I'm Sorry to say that as much as Ferrari make Beautiful Cars, I am a Porsche Fan. I love the 1980's 911 Turbo.
    When the F40 came out, Porsche produced a Rival to it, the Porsche 959. It is I believe 4 wheel drive? Could do 200mph?
    My mate at School loved Ferrari's, me Porsche. We went to a Bookshop in our School days, for sale was a Book on History of Ferrari, and another one on the History of Porsche. We bought them.
    The good times WILL return, and FERever.

    Here is a YouTube Video with Richard Hammond reviewing the F40 and 959.
    The F40 looks way better in Red, than the 959 does. When I was a kid, I had a model car of the 959. It was in Silver, the 959 looks way better in Silver.

    I have to agree, the Ferrari F40 does look Absolutely Stunning. Watching Richard Hammond drive the two cars, the F40 does look far more exciting going around the track. Like he said, it is like a Go Kart. The F40 looks a lot lighter, with the 959 having 4x4, Air Con etc.
    I like the expression of Richard Hammonds face when he says, 'God, that steering wheel is alive'.
    The good times WILL return, and FERever.
