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.
