The F40 was to be a celebration of forty years of Ferrari. The company’s first supercar, although heavily influenced by the racing design of the 288 GTO, was never intended for a life on the racetrack. That is not to say, however, that it was lacking in purpose. As the celebrated magazine Road & Track wrote, ‘The F40 may be one of the most single-minded road cars ever constructed’.
Notable features of the F40 are its twin-turbo charged V8 engine producing some 500bhp, carbon-Kevlar bodywork, competition-inspired double wishbones and a Lexan-clothed windscreen instead of glass. The interior is sparse to say the least, with no sound system, glove compartment or elaborate trims or upholstery, which gives its driver the impression of being in a racing machine.
As Ferrari marketing man, Giovanni Perfetti said, ‘We wanted it to be very fast, sporting in the extreme and spartan’. It is believed to be the last design that Enzo Ferrari ever personally signed off on.
This fine 1:18 scale model of the Ferrari F40 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:18 scale model is supplied in a luxury black box with a protective outer carrying sleeve. Each model is mounted on a polished black acrylic base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The base holds a booklet containing the certificate of authenticity along with information and collateral material about the car. The model title and original branding is displayed on a polished stainless steel plaque mounted at the front end of the base.
