A Ferrari F40 LM with a 750Hp Lexus Twin Turbo V8 ....!?

This will be a controversial one. It´s Steve Cox´s Ferrari F40 Silhouette and it is a 4.0L V8 Lexus engined Ferrari F40 LM replica built in New Zealand in the early 2000´s as a Passion project. Still running nowadays, the footage seen here is captured on Leadfoot Festival´s 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions, with this Monster in its ultimate stage Evolution.

With around 750Hp from its dry sumped, alloy Lexus Racing engine in Twin Turbocharged form, with said power sent to the rear wheels through a Quaife Six speed Sequential transaxle gearbox, it is a 1200Kg Monster with custom designed and built chassis from specially imported tubular steel and pretty much all other bodywork components being custom built in Fibreglass, Kevlar and Carbon Fibre.

It has posted some amazing results through the years and even its acceleration figures are quite impressive with a 0-100Km/h sprint in 3.2 seconds and a 0-200Km/h in 9.1 seconds giving a proper idea of the kind of fire power propelling this Beast.

  • If it wasn't a replica, I would've needed a serious talk with the guys who had built that abomination...
