Red Bull Filmed An F40 Rallying Through Japanese Snow Because Of Course It Did

The Ferrari F40 gets its “legend” status by virtue of its inception, performance characteristics, looks, and construction—but not necessarily for its success in racing. Some F40s were raced, sure, but little did Ferrari know that its turbocharged supercar would find most of its fame in viral videos. There have been matte black ones, crashed ones, and F40s drifted for a spot of “Farmkhana”.
If you can’t really celebrate a car’s racing heritage, might as well do fun stuff with it—so what about taking an F40 skiing…? Red Bull teamed up with my new hero, Takeshi Kimura, to film the aftermath of adding rally lights, a luggage rack, snow chains, and a few other things to make this Ferrari supercar suitable for a snowy mountain.
