Ferrari F40 Gathering At Silverstone Smashes World Record
Posted on , by Nick Preston
The same gathering happened for the F40′s 20th birthday back in 2007, and this past weekend F40 owners from all over the globe descended upon the famous British circuit.
A total of 40 F40′s were present back in 2007 but this year the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain have smashed that record by organizing a fleet of 60 supercars.
This famous mid-engined supercar was first introduced back in 1987 to honour Ferrari’s 40th anniversary. The F40 was the final car commissioned by the legendary Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari.
It was one of the world’s first 200mph road cars when it hit the scene during the late 80′s, and despite the passing of more than two decades it is still regarded as one of the finest supercars to have ever been produced.
The Ferrari F40 had a production run of just two years, and during that time a total of 1,315 examples were built, and most are believed to be still in existence.
It is without a doubt one of my favourite supercars of all time.
