This 1990 F40 No. 86992 has a well-documented history. Originally purchased at Cornes Motors in San Diego CA, it is reported as having three registered owners, with no accident or odometer discrepancies as shown in all “AutoCheck” and “Carfax”.
The car comes with all original books and Ferrari Classiche certification. No. 86992 has been in collector hands for long periods of its life, as its low mileage can attest.  Recently, this F40 had the rare opportunity to be prominently displayed at the “Ferrari World” gallery for a one year period in Adu Dhabi.


In 2014 the meticulous services were performed by a Ferrari authorized service center to bring the vehicle mechanically up to date:

  • Major Service performed, including cam seal housing re-sealing. This includes removing almost everything  visible in the engine compartment-intercoolers, braces, heat shields, air conveyors, to then remove the valve covers, remove the cams, replace cam seals and cam seal housing ‘O-rings and reseal. Setting of the valve timing with the timing belts ensuring the best possible tune; cam seals, cam seal housing ‘O-rings, valve cover gaskets, end plate gaskets, distributor gaskets, spark plugs, air filters.
  • Installation of new pop rod.
  • Cat heat shields were realigned.
  • Installation of a new sealed XS 4700 racing battery. Otherwise, it is the exact size battery that the car came with and will not leak acid on the frame like the current former will. As wells as the installation of a factory positive-post protection cover that was missing.
  • Replaced front and rear under trays along with all hardware due to light damage.
  • Removed intake and rebuilt (dissembled throttle linkage, cleaned and re greased) and balanced throttle bodies.
  • Installed inert silicone fluid in the clutch circuit only. Normal brake fluid was retained in the brake system. New owner needs to make note of this for future services.
  • Flushed out fuel, and replaced fuel filters. Installed injector clean and fresh fuel.
  • Replaced in-tank fuel pumps with new o.e.m.
  • Rebuilt water pump.
  • Replaced bracket bushings pressed into oil pan-1.5 hr. Replaced receiver dryer tank and evacuated and recharged system.
  • Replaced windshield washer tank bracket/strap.
  • Replaced tires.
  • Performed alignment.

Additionally, in 2016 another major service was performed by a Ferrari authorized service center under the request of the current owner.


Built from 1987 to 1992, the F40 succeeded the 288 GTO, consecrating the idea of a modern Ferrari supercar. Designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40 years of existence, it was the last automobile personally approved and presented by Enzo Ferrari. At the time, it was Ferrari’s fastest, most powerful and most expensive car for sale. The F40 took everybody’s breath away, it was raw and mean, a car that looked like a racing model, but that was road legal and could be driven to the shops if desired.

The car debuted with a planned production total of 400, but due to global enthusiasm and relentless demand, a total of 1,311 F40s were produced. However, only 213 cars were sold directly to American owners with the adapted US specifications. These cars are recognizable by rubber front valance and rubber bumper strips that run on both the front and rear, designed by Fioravanti to meet minimum bumper height requirements in the USA. The cars also had to be fitted with a catalytic converter (to meet emissions restrictions), automatic seat belts and aluminum gas tanks, which require less servicing. Because of the weight added by these modifications, Ferrari improved the 213 engines to an output of 515 bhp.


An incredibly fast berlinetta (202 mph top speed) designed by Pininfarina, it was the first production car built mainly from composites. With body panels made of Kevlar, carbon fiber, and aluminum, the F40 further reduced its weight having no sound system, door handles, glove box, leather trim, carpets, or door panels.

This supercar was designed with aerodynamics in mind, relying more on its shape than its power. It had an impressively low drag coefficient of just 0.34. The mid-mounted engine was a 90° all-alloy twin-turbocharged V8 with a 2.9L capacity, able to unleash 471 horses at 7,000rpm.

As pure and as aggressive as a racing car, the F40 was relentlessly minimal and fantastically focused in its approach. Any enthusiast would agree that the passing of time has only enhanced this supercar’s formidable reputation.


The F40 was a revolutionizing car for its time… the first to reach 200 mph and it helped the Scuderia regain its Formula One dominance. This astonishing car will also be remembered as Enzo Ferrari’s beautiful partying gift to an industry that he devoted his life to. Acquiring an F40 with this pedigree and mechanical attention is a unique opportunity, a cornerstone to any Ferrari collection.
