The Ferrari F40 is a car renowned by many as the greatest supercar of all time, and now it can be yours for the ‘Buy It Now’ price of US$595,000 ($572,113).
The 22-year-old 352kW twin-turbo 3.0-litre V8 Italian exotic is for sale, not through the usual classic car channels like RM Auctions or Sotheby’s, but on eBay. The ultra-rare Ferrari currently has no bids with only two days remaining.
The Pininfarina-penned F40 is in New Orleans, Louisiana in the US. It has 6699 miles (10,780km) on the clock, has all its original body panels and was bought from the car’s first owner in 2004.
The F40 was first introduced in 1987 to mark Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and was the last car to be commissioned by Enzo Ferrari before his death in 1988.
The F40 was a staggering car in its day, accelerating from 0-100km/h in just 3.8 seconds and weighing a measly 1100kg with a body made of aluminium, carbon fibre and Kevlar. It had no carpets, no stereo and manual wind-up windows and posted a top speed of 324km/h.
Only 1315 F40s were ever produced between 1987 and 1992. Start counting your pennies.
