If you ask many car enthusiasts to name their ultimate dream car, many will tell you it’s the Ferrari F40. One of the most iconic Ferrari models in history, the F40 features a beautiful design and served as the flagship Ferrari models for years — until the arrival of the F50 in 1995, for sure, though some suggest the F40 was the better vehicle.
This 1992 F40 is a U.S.-specification example from the final model year, and it’s offered for sale by Miller Motorcars in Greenwich, Connecticut, which is among the top high-end car dealerships in the United States. Although the price isn’t listed, we can assume it isn’t cheap. In fact, we can assume it’s very, very, very expensive.
According to the Carfax report, this F40 was sold new in July 1992 in Kingwood, Texas, a suburb of Houston. The owner moved it to Summerland Key, Florida, in 1997 — and after those five years had passed, it had just 284 miles on the odometer. In 2002, the F40 was registered to a new owner in Baton Rouge, where it finally was driven; the owner managed to get the mileage up to 12,282 by 2005. After a few services at Ferrari of Atlanta through 2007, it seems it mostly sat undriven until recently, when Miller Motorcars offered it for sale. It now shows 15,647 miles.
The F40 is certainly a special car, and the photos hardly do it justice; given the fact that it’s a desirable U.S.-specification car with no apparent damage in the history, the asking price is likely well north of $1 million. That means, of course, that most of us will look at this car and just dream. But it’s a very pleasant dream.
