Ferrari F40 burned to the ground in Japan – fr


There can be no better combination of car and road than a Ferrari F40 and the “Japanese Nurburgring”, the Hakone Turnpike. The F40, a turbocharged masterpiece that represents the midpoint of Ferrari history, and the toll, a legendary toll road known for its near-perfect surface, are practically made for each other , and the driver of this particular car was surely having a great time. Until everything goes wrong.

According to a report from Yahoo! Japan, the driver and his passenger noticed smoke during their journey on Saturday and came to a stop immediately.

If the fire seems disastrous, it is not necessarily the end for this poor F40. In 2020, another F40 that suffered an equally cruel fate in Monaco actually underwent a full restoration. There is no guarantee that this car can be recovered the same way, but the car is certainly worth it; an F40 listed on Amelia Island later this month is currently expected to sell for between $ 1.8 million and $ 2.2 million.
