When Ferrari introduced the F40 in 1987, it was a commemorative model to mark the company’s 40th anniversary. However, it was much more than that. It was and still is one of the greatest sports cars they ever built, as well as one of the best Ferraris they ever produced.
Most of the chassis and drivetrain came from the 288 GTO. But they improved the engine, so it produced around 450 HP. Contrary to some other models in its lineup, Ferrari decided to install a twin-turbo V8. It had 2.9-liters of displacement instead of the naturally-aspirated V12, drivers commonly associate with the brand.
