Over a period of several years prior to the F40's conception, Ferrari's dominance in racing had waned significantly, and even in Formula One, an arena they had once dominated, victories had become sparse. Enzo Ferrari had recently turned 90 years old, and was keenly aware that time was not on his side. He wanted his new sports car to serve as his final statement-maker, a vehicle encompassing the best in track-developed technology and capable of being a showcase for what the Ferrari engineers were capable of creating. The company's upcoming 40th anniversary provided just the right occasion for the car to debut. As he had predicted it would be, the F40 was the last car to be commissioned by Enzo before his death.
That's why Ferrari F40 is a car that mean a lot to Ferrari fan. It's the company founder, Mr. Enzo last project. F40 was such a masterpiece of Ferrari creation.
