A very nice history about the F40, and if you don’t want to read pages about it, this 7 minutes video wil help you making an idea of how the F40 started.
Developed out of Ferrari’s GTO Evoluzione project, the LM was a full-house competition version of the sublime F40 and should theoretically have been suitable for a wide-range of racing series. However, with the demise of Group B and sportscar racing in crisis during the late 1980’s, Ferrari customers were left with very few options for their cars. After a brief spell contesting North America’s IMSA GT series, it seemed the LM would never be able to fulfil its potential. As it turned out though, the F40 eventually had several good seasons racing after production of the road-going version had long since been discontinued.
The F40 was the last car introduced and commissioned by Enzo Ferrari himself. Its introduction and its name coincided with Ferrari’s 40th anniversary as an automobile constructor. The car was a celebration of the marque and the man seeking to safely provide owners with a race car for the street, embodying all the finest elements of 1987 automotive engineering.
