Few performance cars are as iconic as the F40. The Italian supercar, introduced in 1987 and produced for five years, is seen by most enthusiasts as one of the best Ferraris ever built.
This isn’t without good reason, as the F40 was the final vehicle which Enzo Ferrari signed off on and in the end, just 1311 examples were made.
While Ferrari is most synonymous with building other-worldly, naturally-aspirated engines, especially big V12s, the F40 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V8 pumping out 471 hp. All of that power is sent through the rear wheels courtesy of a sleek five-speed manual gearbox that results in one of the finest-handling and most involving Ferraris ever offered to the public.
Due to the F40’s iconic status, we’re not huge fans of seeing the car being modified in any way. However, we can make an exception for this one, which is outfitted with a complete Tubi straight-pipe exhaust system that makes it sound absolutely remarkable.
This particular F40 was recently filmed on the streets of Monaco and emits a battle cry that sounds like a dozen machine guns being fired at the same time.
Unfortunately, the very nature of Monaco’s small streets make it virtually impossible for the owner to explore the car’s full performance potential. Nonetheless, even hearing it at low revs, popping and cracking like no other, is enough to provide you with a newfound respect for the mid-engine supercar.
