Debuting in 1987, the F40 was conceived in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Ferrari. With its striking Pininfarina designed body; it was raw and mean, a car that looked like a racing model, but completely road legal, and an instant favorite among enthusiasts. The F40 remains remarkable in Ferrari history as its debut was the last presided over by the late Enzo Ferrari before his death in 1988.

The 599 GTO is one of the most extreme road cars ever built by Ferrari. With an innovative approach to chassis development, the designers were able to ensure the seamless integration of race-bred handling and performance in a road car envelope. The car also features a second generation magnetorheological suspension control system (SCM2), which works in tandem with the Vehicle Dynamic Control and F1-Trac traction control, resulting in a superlative track driving experience on the road.

The conceptualization of the LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s enduring ambition to continually push the boundaries of technology. For a road car, LaFerrari is Ferrari’s most ambitious production in that it amalgamates both GT and Formula 1 engineering – its concept car looks indicative of the future of Ferrari styling under Design Head Flavio Manzoni.
