The Ferrari F40 is perhaps the incarnation of the ultimate driver’s car and one of the best analogical and pure supercars ever produced. Its iconic styling, blistering performance and legendary ruthless behaviour made it one of the most highly sought-after and admired Ferraris of all time when it was new, and it can still proudly vie for this title today.

Chassis number 83572 was completed by the Factory in December 1989 and delivered new to Belgium. It was then sold in Japan and re-painted in Giallo Modena and then put up for sale by SAM Motors of Sengakuji in 1991. The car remained in Japan for the majority of its life and while not much is known of its history in that country, in 2013 it was re-imported in Europe and a full service, which included replacing the car’s fuel tanks, was done. A more recent service was carried out by Ferrari Antwerp in August 2017.

A car that truly needs no introduction, a well-kept, ready-to-drive F40 should be the cornerstone of any world-class Ferrari collection. More than capable of keeping up with today’s current crop of supercars, it is hard to believe that the F40 is over 25 years old, as both its performance and looks still excite those lucky enough to get in the driver’s seat. This immaculate, first-generation F40 is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.
