• Ferrari F40 owner decides to put a bicycle on top of his supercar

In the grand scheme of things, a car like the Ferrari F40 should be treated with utmost care. It’s not all the time that you see one of these Prancing Horse classics on the road these days, but when you do, the most common reactions usually start and end with the word ‘wow’.

Apparently though, some owners of the F40 don’t see the esteem this type of car holds to the rest of us. How else do you explain this photo?

It’s one thing to put a bike rack on an SUV, but on a supercar like the F40? Now some people might find this amusing, and to a certain extent, we do too. But there needs to be some sort of restraint – or at least, a good sprinkling of sanity – before you decide to put not just a rack, but an actual bike on top of one of the most popular Ferraris in recent history. Then again, it’s not our car. If the owner thinks that it’s a good look to have a bike on top of an F40, that’s his call.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

We have all the rights to do something which owns, that’s the message of the owner of this F40. Sounds crazy but of course, its very convenient.

Yeah, you’re right on that one. And besides, he actually had the brains to use a bike rack to put the bike on, I just don’t know how he was able to put the ruck there without having to drill screw holes for it.

Well, I don’t think that this one is anything off. The guy just made use of the car in a way he prefers. Come on, I have seen weirder stuff done to a Ferrari.

Hey, I think we’re missing the point here guys. That there is an F40, you probably won’t see a lot of them nowadays. So it is really quite for someone to use the roof of it for that purpose.

Well, if they actually do think of a utilitarian model Ferrari, the FF would probably be the best one to base it on. It would be suitable for, say, this bike rack.

Well, I probably won’t be surprised if Ferrari would actually take this idea seriously. As they have always said before, great concepts often start first as silly ideas.

haha. For sure, he was a head turner at that moment, not because of his coolness but stupidity! He certainly doesn’t know how to care his ride!

When i saw the F40 I was about to say "wow" but seeing the rooftop..oops! i started screaming who’s the stupid driver behind that wheel?smiley

So what’s the deal? I don’t see why all the fuss about him putting a bike on top of his car, a lot folks do that. It just so happens that his is an F40.

Well, I must admit that the whole bike on top of the Ferrari bit is actually kinda cute to me. But I do agree that this one might be taking it a bit too far.

hmm. It seems the owner of this sports car doesn’t know how to treat this car. Well, I guess you’re right guys, It’s not ours, but he shouldn’t put that bike on the top of F40!

I think there’s no reason to be mad or something for the owner. The bike was put in a bar inches away from the roof, its doesn’t bruised the top actually.

Hahaha! That’s a nice one. Maybe he got the idea from those previous photos of carmakers having their own bikes. Ferrari should take a cue from this.
