The 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas was a high point in this automotive journalist’s career. Aside from the multitude of of high performance tuner cars and the chance to ride shotgun in a Corvette with a racing instructor, SEMA also offers visitors the opportunity to witness the unimaginable. Lucky for us, right as we stumbled across this pristine looking Ferrari F40 the guys in the booth were worried about the fitment of the classic super car’s engine cover. This gave us a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the twin turbocharged 2.9 Liter V8 that makes 471 HP, and because we happen to be the gear heads that we are no opportunity was wasted. Honestly, the only way that you would ever get to experience something like this is if you drove by an F40 stuck on the side of the road with an inquisitive owner or if that guy is your best friend.
