1987 Ferrari F40
The Ferrari F40 was designed to be a hardcore racecar for the road. It was a follow-up to the company’s 288 GTO.
To deliver maximum performance it featured all kinds of weight-saving innovations including carbon fiber, Kevlar and aluminum body parts. The windows and windshield were made of plastic to cut even more mass. All told the car weighed less than 2,500 pounds!
It was function over from inside as well; the result was a pretty compromised street car. There was no radio, carpeting or air conditioning, and the door panels were flat and shapeless.
Devastating performance was provided by a tiny 2.9-liter turbocharged V8 delivering around 470 horsepower. The Ferrari F40 was sold around the world from 1987 to 1992.
