Ferrari F40 Is An Icon That Will Always Draw A Wide Smile On Your Face

The Ferrari F40 is rightfully remembered as one of the greatest supercars ever manufactured, and in all likelihood, will remain so well after autonomous cars start to ferry us around and we fly from place-to-place in taxis or use subterranean tunnels.

The last car created under the guidance of Enzo Ferrari himself, the F40 was never meant to be a supercar that flattered its driver. Instead, it made do without any electronic aids or comfort creatures at all (save for air conditioning) and was built with a single philosophy in mind: to be uncomplicated, light, and very, very fast.

As supercars nowadays are much quicker, comfortable, and practical than their counterparts from a couple decades ago, it’s easy to think that they’re simply better. While they certainly are in most regards, like safety, performance and ease of use, vehicles like the F40 remain among the purist performance cars and are all about providing the ultimate driving thrills.

In one of its latest films, Petrolicious took a look at a stunning example owned by collector Jasbir Sing Dhillon. The 10-minute video shows not just what driving an F40 is like, but also what it means to those fortunate enough to own one.

    Petrolicious makes the best car owner videos ever. I end up falling for every car they do a video on. Now I want an F40…what to do about the downpayment though…

      Excellent comment up there. On the other hand, let’s hope they don’t review or do a video on a Tesla. 😀 😀

        The only Tesla that looks lustworthy (Maybe) is the new Roadster they’ve shown the concept and that’s only based on it’s looks, having a car that fast that’s silent is like a Hypercar with no soul or heart, completely pointless.

          Oh yeah I keep forgetting about the roadster.

          No sound no buy.. sports cars need the visceralness of it.

    Three things on this video.
    1) Petrolicious is art in video form. They would deserve an award for how they convey their message and the atmosphere.
    2) The F40 is fine.
    3) I am glad it ended up in the hands of a gentleman and a deep soul who can go beyond the car and understand what that car is.

    Superb car. Mark my words : there comes a time Ferrari will make a line of analoge cars, like this, besides their electronically loaded cars. What a nice guy mr. Dhillon ! And a great short film.
