ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Many people consider the Ferrari F40 to be the "ultimate" Ferrari model -- and now there's one for sale on Autotrader. It's a 1991 F40 finished in red, of course, with a red interior, and it's offered by AutoSport Designs on Long Island with no price listed. It's also absolutely beautiful.

Of course, every F40 is absolutely beautiful, and it has one of the most distinctive shapes ever in the history of the car industry -- with its huge wing, its low, wide profile, and its see-through covering over the engine in back. The F40 was also one of the last models that company founder Enzo Ferrari personally helped to develop before his death in 1988, which adds to the significance of the car.

This particular F40 is a low-mileage example, as nearly all of them are. It's an original U.S. model F40, though the Carfax report doesn't have any entries before 2008, likely because it was driven sparingly and records were purged years ago. However, in 2008, it was in Michigan, and then Wisconsin, before finding a new owner in New York in 2009. That owner added 1,600 miles since then, and now it's back on the market.

Although the price isn't listed, F40 models have shot up in value in recent years as desirability has increased for all collector vehicles, and especially Ferrari models. While some F40 models traded hands in the $200,000 to $300,000 range during the Global Recession in 2009, it's now unlikely you'll find one for under $1 million -- a big number, of course, but reasonable when you consider it's one of the most iconic modern cars on the planet.
