Off the road for this Ferrari F40 in Switzerland

The Ferrari F40 is the dream of more than one, alas, a copy of the sublime model with a prancing horse went off the road in Mollis, Switzerland, during the Kerenzerberg Rennen. In the last news, There are no injuries.

Everything was fine for the F40. It was not going any faster than the other cars, but its driver lost control of his supercar on the inside of a bend. You can distinctly hear the tires screeching: did the driver go over the throttle too soon?

The front of the car suffered heavy damage. You might think it will never be fixed, but remember we are talking about a Ferrari F40 here. Given its condition and its value, it is obvious that it will be quickly put back on the road for a substantial sum. After all, the profile of the car still looks fine, as does the rear end and cabin of the ’80s supercar.

Things could have been much worse. We remember that last year, a Ferrari F40 caught fire in Japan. This is irreparable. A few years back, another Ferrari F40 caught fire in Monaco. Its rear face was badly damaged. In July 2020, the driver of another copy lost control of his car in Australia before ending up on the side of the road. The condition of this copy is much less serious than all the others.

As a reminder, Ferrari only produced 1315 copies of his F40 between 1987 and 1992. We don’t know how many units are still in circulation today. The Italian supercar is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V8 developing a respectable 478 hp. All torque is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
