Earlier this year, we mentioned that a record gathering of Ferrari F40 models was planned for the Silverstone Classic 25th Anniversary. Now that event has come and gone, and over 60 Ferrari F40s showed up, trumping the previous record of 40 seen at the 2007 event.

Based on someone that attended the event and was involved in the parade, the unofficial finally tally of F40s was 62, and the sound of multiple twin-turbo V8s prowling around Silverstone was undoubtedly a sight to behold. The F40 was first introduced back in 1987 and product was limited to just 1,315 units. It’s fairly impressive to see more than 50, never mind 60, to show up in one location.

The event also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the F40 model, which sports 478-hp and is famous for being the first ever 200-mph production road car.
