As planned, the annual Concorso Italiano festival brought together a collection of Ferrari F40s from across the continent so that the owners, and onlookers, could revel in their minimalist glory. Destined to be one of the most collectible Ferraris of all time, the F40 is a bare-bones street legal race car powered by an awesome twin-turbo 2.9-liter V8 engine. Making 471-hp, it weighed just 2,400 lbs thanks to a carbon-Kevlar body and did not have traction control – meaning we’re surprised so many have survived.
Built to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary as an automaker, just 1,315 models were ever built. As many as 14 were scheduled to be on display at Concorso, but we only counted 10 (then again, erhaps we missed a few as they all do look rather similar).
