In a very sad incident for Italian supercars enthusiasts in general and Ferrari fans in particular, one Ferrari F40 was engulfed in flames, in Monaco, the second-smallest country in the world
For those who do not know, we are talking about a very rare car, of which only 1,311 copies were ever made during the period from 1987 to 1992. Ferrari F40 was launched at that time to replace Ferrari 288 GTO, and the supercar was made to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ferrari’s establishment. At the time, it was the fastest, most powerful and most expensive Ferrari.
Without any doubt, this is not the first version of the legendary Ferrari F40 that ends up in an accident or a violent collision. However, this time someone was watching and took a video of the sad incident from the moment the red F40 caught fire.
It appears that the car’s owner was unable to save his very distinctive car, and in one video, we see a person in the second floor of a nearby building trying to help distinguish the fire using a water hose. Unfortunately, he could not save Ferrari from the rapidly growing flames!
As a reminder, these are the mechanical specifications of the legendary Ferrari F40:
This Italian supercar is powered by a twin-turbo 3-liter V8 engine generating 471 hp (478 PS) and 577 Nm of torque, which propels the 1,369 kg Ferrari from zero to 100 km / h in 4.7 seconds, and to a top speed of 321 km / h.
When it was first revealed, Ferrari F40 price started from 400 thousand US dollars, equivalent to 1.5 million Saudi riyals, but now it worth more than 1.6 million US dollars, equivalent to 6 million Saudi riyals, as it became a collector item.
