The first car that will most likely be thought of by one when asked to name a supercar from the 80's. It is the car that became every boy's dream car, and subsequently illustrated through posters which could be found in almost every boy's room. It is the last machine to receive the blessing of the infamous, the one and only; Enzo Ferrari. The F40. A machine that many car enthusiasts and automobile experts alike consider to be the most influential supercar of the 80's. Powering the car was a twin-turbocharged 3.0L DOHC V8 that was based off the power plant in it's predecessor, the 288 GTO. Of course however, the F40 had a larger displacement and had altered boost pressure, allowing it to ultimately produce an awe-inspiring 478 HP. What does this equate to? Well, with all this power and nature of the F40 being absurdly lightweight (at around 1100kg), the F40 smashed records and became the world's fastest production car at the time with a top speed of 323km/h. This is only the tip of the iceberg on why and how the F40 is that much of an icon but if I were to write it all here, we would be here for about 2-3 hours. However, as a conclusion, it was truly fitting that the F40 represented the final road car blessed and produced by Mr. Enzo Ferrari himself, and it is as appealing today as it was the day it first appeared over 20 years ago.
