Assalamu Alaikum all. apologises for bringing up an old thread..but this thread and some comments reminded me of another F40. the f40 in the original post is a kit as most people have commented.
but the story is somewhat true..a F-40 was just forgotten once..the car had some mechanical problems or was just left at a mechanics and never collected by a rich arab prince. it has since been rediscovered and cleaned up but still not restored and is still not in running condition.
i have a real soft spot for the F40 as it was purely for racing only disguised as a road legal car. It is one of the rarest and much sought after supercars and its uniqueness is in the fact that Ferrari used its Formula 1 engines which it could not use in 1986 due to regulation changes in the F1 sports and built a car around the engine with no frills or extras.. belive me there is nothing like hearing an F1 engine on the road!!
