1992 Ferrari F40 - $2.7m

No. 19 of 22 produced in the final year of F40 production. When production ended in 1992, 1,315 were built in all. 8,732 miles, 14,053 km. Iconic Rosso Corsa over Red Gray interior. 2,936 CC DOHC V-8 engine. Twin IHI turbochargers with Behr Intercoolers. Weber-Marelli electronic fuel injection. 478 HP at 7,000 RPM. 5-speed manual transmission. Ventilated 4-wheel disc brakes.
Ferrari’s landmark 40th anniversary in 1987 resulted in the F40. The F40 was a thinly disguised racer for the road and remains an unqualified tour de force. It will forever be the last new automobile commissioned by company founder Enzo Ferrari. Power is delivered by a twin-turbocharged, 4-cam, port-injected 3.0L (2963cc) V-8 engine utilizing IHI turbochargers and Behr intercoolers.
Controlled by a Weber-Marelli fuel-injection and engine-management system, it resulted in a factory-rated 478 HP at 7,000 RPM through a 5-speed rear transaxle.
0-60 MPH time is 3.9 seconds, 0-100 MPH in 7.8 seconds, and 0-140 MPH in 14 seconds. For the truly brave, 201 MPH is flat out. The F40 made automotive history as the first series-production supercar capable of cracking the mark. The car was up for grabs at Mecum and exceeded expectations.

Hagerty suggests a concours 1992 Ferrari F40 is trending around $ 1.6m.
