Enzo Ferrari has gone down in history as one of the greatest car manufacturers of all time and his final masterpiece was the 1987 Ferrari F40.

The Ferrari F40 was the last car commissioned by Enzo Ferrari, who died in 1988.

It was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive vehicle for sale when it was produced.

The 1987 Ferrari F40 is widely considered one of the most highly sought-after supercars.

It even made the top of our list of seven of the greatest road-going Ferraris.

The car was produced from 1987 to 1992, and was designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ferrari, before it was then followed by the F50.

Last year, the automaker hosted an official Ferrari F40 Legacy Tour.

The event saw more than 40 classic F40s go on an epic three-day journey on some of Italy’s finest roads. 

The F40 is so highly sought after because it stands as a lasting tribute to the genius of Enzo Ferrari.

It was the last Ferrari personally commissioned and approved by Enzo Ferrari, before his passing a year later. 

The car is also quite rare as only between 1,311 and 1,315 Ferrari F40 models – reports differ – were made.

Of that number, only 213 units were designed for the United States. So only a few F40 models have the wheel on the left side.

Some highly customized models of the car have made headlines in the past.

But many Ferrari fans – and the company itself – aren’t mad about these customizations, just like in the case of this widebody Ferrari F40.

The Italian supercar manufacturer is notoriously ultra-strict when protecting its brand – which is understandable, given the iconic nature of the marque.

Not that long ago, Ferrari reportedly blacklisted Justin Bieber after he painted his 458 Italia neon blue.

So if you are lucky enough to own a Ferrari F40, take good care of it.
