Although built as a supercar and with a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds, the Ferrari F40 then was beaten five years later by the Jaguar XJ220 and never retook that podium again. The F40 is a true classic, and it was the last car Ferrari built under Enzo Anselmo Ferrari’s direct supervision and the one still giving a lot of other supercars a run for their money.
Yet, something about the F40 that stayed in people’s hearts for such a long time, maybe it was the impression it left on people. Not just Ferrari enthusiasts, but all car enthusiasts worldwide. It can also be the soul that the F40 portrays in having that sticks to so many people. But can you imagine, even 25 years after it was made, people are still using the Ferrari F40 as the yard stick in measuring how much of a sports car, modern day supercars are.
When Porsche buff and race car driver Chris Harris drove the Ferrari F40, it just lit up his face like a five-year-old seeing a batch of chocolate chip cookies coming fresh out of oven. Meanwhile on the same segment, he drove a Porsche 911 GT2 RS and he wasn’t half as charmed as he was in the Ferrari.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with the Top Gear UK host Richard Hammond, often referred to as the ‘Hamster’. For those who know Richard Hammond know that he is also an avid Porsche Enthusiast. And when he was given the opportunity to drive the Porsche 959 and the Ferrari F40, he also preferred the F40 over the Porsche. And just recently in the first Top Gear UK episode of season 18, Hammond chose the Noble M600 on a road trip through Italy because of how it reminded him of the F40.
What do you think of such a true classic vehicle performance stunning and a yard stick in measuring the world today?
