Ferrari F40 – die Sammlung

Den Überblick bewahren

Warum genau tun wir uns das an? Es sind doch viel zu viele, wahrscheinlich 1315. Und es sind eh fast alle rot (einer ist weiss, zwei sind schwarz, weniger als 10 gelb). Und doch, es muss irgendwie sein, der Ferrari F40 war so etwas wie der letzte ehrliche Supercar, ein Vieh, fies. Und irgendwie: geil. Deshalb. (Ausserdem glauben wir, dass die Preise für die F40 durch die Decke gehen werden, da ist es immer gut, wenn man ein bisschen die Übersicht bewahrt.)

Chassis-Nummer: 74049 (es dürfte sich dabei um einen Prototypen handeln)

Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Maranello 2007, Schätzpreis 500’000 bis 600’000 Euro, nicht verkauft.

Chassisnummer: 77676

Wurde 2022 (kurz) angeboten über RM Sotheby’s, Private Sales, mit folgendem Text: «The example offered here is among the earliest built, being the 27th F40 produced by chassis sequence. Delivered new to Italy, according to this car’s original service book, it was purchased by Carlo Sama of Ravenna from Motor S.p.a., the authorised Ferrari dealer in Modena, just a few miles from the factory gates. The car would return to Motor S.p.a for its first service in October 1988 and would later be serviced at Michelotto, in Padova, at 7,900 kilometres in May 1990. Remaining in its native Italy for nearly a decade, the F40 was sold to the Netherlands in 1997 and was re-registered there, where it has lived since and spent most of its time in the hands of a single owner. The car was granted Ferrari Classiche certification, confirming that it retains its original chassis, bodywork, engine, and gearbox. The F40 was last serviced by Kroymans Ferrari, the official Ferrari dealership in the Netherlands, in March 2021 when the odometer displayed 29,970 kilometres, with the fuel tanks having been last replaced in November 2020. In June 2021, the front brake discs and pads were replaced, and the original seats were reupholstered. In September 2022, Kroymans Ferrari performed an inspection on the car, confirming its exceptional condition. Its report stated: “that the car is in very nice condition and well mantianed…the car is accident-free and that we believed the car is still in its original paint. (Only the front bonnet is inconclusive)”.»

Auktion: BH Auctions, Private Sales (Januar 2023), angeboten mit folgendem Text: «At the time, the Italian GT Championship saw European dream cars such as the Porsche 964 Carrera RS and the Jaguar XJ220 line-up against each other. But when Yasutsune Chiba, the head of Team Taisan, came across an article in a magazine about how the F40 was dominating in Europe, he couldn’t help but dream of the F40 racing around Japanese circuits. Chiba immediately bought an F40 and showed it off at the Fuji Speedway for the opening round of the JGTC season. The red body-coloured supercar was, of course, the talk of the race fans and drew a lot of attention. At the time, however, F40 racing parts were hard to come by and the car had to be driven in a virtually stock configuration. Despite its reputation, the F40 struggled to keep up with the other teams, who had built their cars with a wealth of experience. However, for Chiba, running the F40 in a Japanese race series meant a lot to him and he refused to give up, improving the car race by race. This gradually paid off and they took pole position at the 4th round in Sugo. The team then brought in Oscar Larrauri, a former Italian GT Championship driver, to drive the car and team to victory. In 1994, in the final race of the season, held at the Mine Circuit, the F40 made a spectacular start and took the lead, but the 962C, also from Team Taisan, was following closely. A fierce battle ensued between the two cars, but in the end the F40 took the chequered flag in 1st place. They ended the 1994 season on a strong note but the following season however, the F40 was unable to perform to its full potential due to the full scale support for Japanese works cars and the introduction of new regulations. As a result, the F40’s victory at Mine in 1994 was its first and last one in JGTC. But the spectacle of this beautiful car speeding around a Japanese circuit, made possible by the enthusiasm of Team Taisan, has left a lasting impression on many race fans and became a legend that will live on forever».

Motoren-Nummer: 18272

Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Sealed, Mai 2023, keine Preisangabe. Gebaut wurde Chassis-Nummer #83249 Ende 1989 – und wurde dann zum Begrüssungsgeschenk für Alain Prost, der auf die Saison 1990 zu Ferrari wechselte. Im Februar 1990 wurde der F40 dann auch tatsächlich im Wohnort von Prost im französischen Meribel zugelassen. Bloss: Prost ist das grosszügige Geschenk – im Wert von etwas über 400’000 Franken – gar nie gefahren, sondern machte es ziemlich schnell zu Geld. Bevor er es über einen Ferrari-Händler an den Ferrari-Sammler Graham de Zille verschacherte, signierte er den F40 immerhin noch auf dem Dach. Doch auch de Zille verspürte wohl keine Liebe zu diesem Fahrzeug, es wurde bald wieder verkauft – und ging die letzten Jahre durch viele Hände. Und wurde doch weniger als 5000 Kilometer gefahren – ein Schicksal, das dieser Ferrari F40 mit vielen seiner Brüder teilt.

Auktion: Broad Arrow, Monterey 2022, Schätzpreis 1’950’000 bis 2’150’000 Dollar, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «According to original sales documentation in the voluminous history file this 1990 F40 was originally ordered via Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. Thorpe, UK on 9 June 1988 with an estimated delivery date of spring 1989. After a year’s delay, J.S. Hurst accepted delivery of his new F40 on 5 April 1990 at the Ferrari factory in Maranello as recorded in the original stamped service book. Mr. Hurst owned the car for over 15 years in both London and while traveling across the continent adding 28,661 kilometers to the odometer. While under Hurst’s care it received multiple services with a 20,000 km service in 2001 and a cam belt service approximately a year before selling to a short-term owner Stephan Eriksson also based in England. The second owner held the car less than a year before Mr. Peter Reid acquired it on 12 August 2005. Mr. Reid was quite invested in his new purchase, approving another cam belt service and a rebuild of both turbos the day after purchase with fuel tank replacement a year later. While at Joe Macari for service work in 2008 the car was inspected for Ferrari Classiche Certification. It was duly granted with the Classiche binder included with the car. In preparation for sale in 2013, this F40 was sent back to Joe Macari for a full inspection, cam belt replacement, and an annual service among other items. Between 2013 and 2022 the car passed through two additional stewards each taking care to address issues as they appeared and keeping current with service work. In fact, this F40 was treated to four annual services between 2018 and 2021 before being imported into the USA by the consignor.» Verkauft für 1’985’000 Dollar.

Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Dare to Dream 2024, Schätzpreis 2’750’000 bis 3’250’000 Dollar, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «F40s without the adjustable suspension and catalytic converts—known in the community as “non-cat, non-adjust”—are highly prized for their superior handling and less-restricted engines. One such example is offered here, remarkably well preserved and showing only 1,606 kilometers on the odometer as of cataloguing time. It completed production on 1 March 1990, finished as it is today in Rosso Corsa over Stoffa Vigogna (wool fabric), and was sold directly by the factory that same month. History compiled by former owners indicates that it was imported from Europe to Japan three months later and first registered there on 11 June of 1990 by a collector in Osaka, who drove the car sparingly. In 2004, the F40 would pass to another owner in Chiba prefecture, who retained it for five years before passing it on to its third and final Japanese caretaker in 2010. This owner stated that the mileage was 1,150 kilometers in 2015. That year, renowned Ferrari specialists DK Engineering of Hertfordshire, England, acquired the F40 and had it imported to the United Kingdom. Of the more than 140 F40s the outfit has handled over the years, chassis 84169 was among the lowest-mileage examples seen within the prior five years, according to correspondence on file from the company’s founder and director. While under the care of DK Engineering, the car had the cambelts, fuel tanks, rear upper wishbone bushings, wheel lock clips, and fluids replaced, the suspension stripped and refurbished with overhauled dampers, the cam covers stripped and repainted, the valve clearances checked, and a fire system fitted. With this work completed, DK Engineering commissioned a Ferrari Classiche inspection, the Red Book for which was issued on 9 February 2016 and confirms 84169’s superb condition, replete with numbers-matching chassis, engine, and gearbox. It is accompanied by manuals in pouch and tools. Since entering the Dare to Dream Collection in late 2015, the F40 has rarely been driven and continuously maintained, with the water pump replaced and a turbo unit rebuilt in 2020, and the air-conditioning system serviced and recharged in 2023».

The excellent credentials of this car – chassis number ZFFGJ34B000084362 – certainly left us feeling as though we’d struck gold. A non-cat non-adjust example from 1990, it’s covered a scant 12,500km, which is verified by the wealth of accompanying service documentation. Sold new to Portugal via Viauto Automoveis LDA in Porto, the car has remained in the very same town ever since, changing hands only once. What’s more, this F40 is Ferrari Classiche certified, confirming all its numbers are matching. We also noted the correct factory markings on the body and the suspension at all four corners, the original user manuals and the factory tool kit. Ferrari F40s have always been a rare sight in Portugal – just two were delivered to the Iberian Peninsula, which goes some way to explain why this beautiful example was displayed in the Museo do Caramulo between 2017 and 2021. Suitably impressed by this Ferrari’s condition, originality and provenance, we acquired the car in September of 2021 with a view to presenting it for sale. Prior to its presentation, we contacted a number of our clients who we believed would be great candidates for such an F40. Sure enough, a client voiced an interest and following an inspection in Italy, which is where we transported the car, a sale was agreed.»

On 19 December 2000 it was registered in the Netherlands; prior to the current ownership, a repair was carried out to the body panel beneath the passenger side rear quarter window, along with the offside rear corner. Importantly, the body is noted as having its original panels in the accompanying Ferrari Classiche certification and during a recent inspection the matching body numbers were found on the front and rear clams, and the doors.

Angeboten mit folgendem Text: «This exquisite example of the legendary F40 claims important ownership provenance, Ferrari Classiche certification, and minimal driving use during a life of fastidious care. According to the research of marque expert Marcel Massini, chassis number 85596 is the 18th of 213 examples specified for the United States. Completed in June 1990, the F40 was distributed to Grand Prix Motors of Seattle, Washington, and in August it was sold to one of the world’s best-known and most successful businessmen and philanthropists, Paul Allen (as confirmed by handwritten entries in the car’s original warranty booklet). Hardly requiring an introduction, Mr. Allen was the co-founder of software giant Microsoft, and is also well known for his ownership of sports franchises, including at various times the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers. The F40 was delivered to him with one of the model’s most desirable options, the exquisitely upholstered leather fitted luggage made by Schedoni. Mr. Allen retained possession of the fine Ferrari for 13 years, during which time the car accrued very little mileage, reportedly displaying just 1,600 miles on the odometer when it was offered in July 2003. Choosing to upgrade to Maranello’s latest hypercar, the Enzo, Mr. Allen sold this F40 to Michael Warn of Oregon, as reflected by a title copy on file dated October 2003. In June 2007 the Ferrari was acquired by a well-known Italian supercar dealer in Laguna Niguel, California, and he had the car serviced by a marque dealership, including attention to the clutch and air conditioner. The opportunity was further taken to certify the car with a Ferrari Classiche Red Book, which attests to the continued presence of all the major matching-numbers mechanical equipment. Sold in March 2008 to an enthusiast residing in Asheville, North Carolina, the F40 again changed hands 19 months later when it was purchased by a collector in Darien, Connecticut. In October 2011 the car passed to a Florida-based owner before being acquired by the consignor in 2019. Currently displaying just 2,736 miles, this incredibly original F40 is believed to feature all of the factory-applied paintwork, and continues to retain all of its matching-numbers mechanical equipment, just as it was certified by Ferrari Classiche 14 years ago. The breathtaking berlinetta is well documented with the Massini history, warranty booklet, prior titles, bills of sale, and a service invoice; and it is accompanied by owner’s manuals in the proper pouch, tools, and the Schedoni fitted luggage.»

It was delivered to its first owner in Florida in December of that same year, according to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. Having spent all of its life in the US, it was acquired by the current owner nearly twenty years ago from California and has lived with him in Texas ever since. The F40 has been driven approximately 4,000 miles in its current ownership, with total mileage showing at just under 11,500 miles from new.
