The photo you are looking at here is incredibly special indeed. It shows a Ferrari F40 rolling off the production line – something enthusiasts all around the world wish they were a part of.

Ferrari only built the F40 between 1987 and 1992 at the Maranello factory – making this very special. This image is believed to be from 1989 and you can also see a 348 alongside it.

The F40 is often regarded as the greatest supercar ever made and isn't hard to see why. It features lightweight body panels made from Kevlar and carbon fibre. Powering the F40 is a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine derived from the 288 GTO’s block and it produces 471hp @ 7000 rpm and 426 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm.

It's extremely special to see one now and if you do, be careful because they are easily worth upwards of £1 million. We're just glad we got to see a photo of one on the production line – that's really quite special.

  • There’s a guy local to me who bought one either new, or near new - 500k AUD from memory.

    Took it in some tarmac rallies, smashed it up, but had it fixed.

    In Aus they seem to be commanding about 2.5m now, which is about what you’d expect after converting 1m currency from UK to here and paying our crazy import tax.

    Not a bad investment to 5x your dough, I do think maintenance and servicing would have gobbled up a few hundred thou in that time.

  • Cool picture. Imagine being that person about to get their delivery of a factory fresh zero KM F40!

  • The F40 was, and still is, very impressive.
