The Ferrari F40 Competizione is one of the most important cars in the history of the Italian supercar manufacturer. Between 1987 and 1992, 1,315 cars were produced. It’s a collector’s car, so when one like this hits the market, you can be sure it won’t be cheap.
RM Sotheby’s has announced the sale of a 1989 Ferrari F40 Competizione that may be the most powerful F40 in the world. It is powered by a 2.9L twin-turbo V8 engine with 700 hp (515 kW) that can be upgraded to 986 hp (725 kW).
In 1989, it was bought by Kroymans BV (Netherlands). Three years later, the car underwent modifications so that it could participate in races. There were no engine modifications. In the same year it was sold to Dutch Racing Promotions of Blaricum. In 1995, it underwent additional modifications to continue to compete in races, and then the engine power was increased. It participated in races until 2009, and during that period it changed several owners. In 2019, it was fully serviced, and after that it was bought by the Zanasi Group from Maranello, which carries out special orders for the painting of Ferrari cars (Extra Campionario). The original red color was replaced by triple-layer Grigio Nardo.
It is equipped with electric blue fabric seats and painted Scuderia Ferrari shields in the style of sports racing cars of the 60s, a carbon spoiler, a new fuel tank, a new fire extinguisher, and many other equipment.
Considering the car’s history, this is a unique opportunity for collectors and Ferrari enthusiasts. Price upon request.
