Dealer Asking Over $6 Million For Rare, Low Mileage Ferrari F40 LM

The standard Ferrari F40 is already one of the most desirable supercars on the planet. However, this F40 LM, looking for a new home in the UK, is sure to send collectors wild.

Listed for sale by Knight International on James Edition, this F40 LM is one of just 19 units ever produced and one of only four GTC-spec models built by the Italian automaker.

Like the road car, the F40 LM is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V8. However, modifications are aplenty and the car manages to squeeze out a remarkable 720 hp thanks to its new-and-improved turbochargers, Behr intercoolers and Weber-Marelli electronic fuel injection.

Numerous other components distinguish the F40 LM from the road car. For example, new bodywork has been fitted which includes extreme front and rear wings, a competition-spec five-speed manual transmission, larger disc brakes and calipers, revised suspension and bespoke wheels and tires.

Additionally, Ferrari managed to shed some unnecessary weight from the (already slim) road car by stripping out the interior and fitting fixed headlights in place of the heavy pop-up ones of the street car.

Knight International says this F40 LM has only 2600 km (1616 miles) on the clock. However, does that make it worth the $6.1 million asking price? Well, a similar F40 LM sold at auction for $3.3 million in 2015.

On the other hand, a 250 GTO just broke the all-time record for the most expensive car ever sold, with an alleged price of $80 million. This could mean that prices for rare Ferraris could be on the rise, and compared to the GTO, this F40 looks like a bargain.

Plus, while there’s no denying the allure of a 250 GTO in mint condition, we’d go for this F40 every single day and twice on Sundays – provided we could afford it, which of course we can’t…

  • No, 6 millions is way too high, the fact that the car had mundane history

    Gorgeous. But I’d buy so many other cars with that $6.6mil.

  • enthusia

    i can somewhat understand if it reached 6 million in auction, but asking that much from the jump? the classic ferrari market is getting insane, but there’s always someone who can and will pay that much.
