Here's something that's a bit different from the regular stuff you mostly see on Autotrader. This is a 1992 Ferrari F40, and it's currently offered for sale for $1,690,900. Yes, that's right: Nearly $1.7 million for a car. But, of course, it's a very special car.

The F40 in question is a 1992 model -- the F40's final year -- and a U.S.-spec model, which always commands more money than European-specification counterparts. It's also traveled just 6,600 miles, which surely contributes to its high price. It's listed for sale by Motorcars International, a noted exotic car dealership in Missouri, which always has impressive inventory -- although this particular car is especially exciting.

As you probably know, the F40 is one of Ferrari's five special "supercars," the others being just as renowned: The 288 GTO, the F50, the Enzo and the LaFerrari. The F40 was made in the highest numbers, so it's technically the "cheapest" -- though, at $1.7 million, it's hardly cheap. This F40, like all F40 models, is finished in red with a red interior.

As for this car's history, the Carfax report shows that it was sold new in May 1992 in Portland, Oregon. It eventually moved to the Chicago area, then to South Florida, and then to Missouri, where it was apparently sold by Motorcars International before. It then found an owner in New York, but now it's back for sale in Missouri, ready to head off to the next buyer.

Will that next buyer be you? Probably not. But as expensive as this car is, I still consider it an amazing value -- and I suspect that someday, we'll all be talking about "back when you could get an F40 for only $1.7 million."
