Very Rare Blue Ferrari F40 Supercar Spotted In Houston
Car enthusiasts were astounded when an exceptionally rare blue F40 Ferrari was spotted parked outside of Woodlands Market Center, Texas, during broad daylight. The car has a transparent engine cover and seems to have been imported from Britain due to its unusual license plate. Car enthusiasts will also note that this car was only released in red, but has been resprayed to a Porsche color aqua blue.
For those unaware, the F40 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds has a top speed of around 201 mph (324 km/h), and was built with an emphasis on lightweight construction. It features a tubular steel frame and composite body panels, which helps keep its weight down to around 2,400 pounds (1,100 kg).
Ferrari produced the F40 in limited numbers, with approximately 1,315 units built during its production run. This exclusivity adds to its desirability among collectors and enthusiasts.
Not to mention this was the last Ferrari model personally approved by Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the company. It was meant to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and was introduced shortly before Enzo died in 1988.
Unlike many modern supercars with advanced driver aids and creature comforts, the F40 is known for its raw and uncompromising driving experience. It lacks power steering, anti-lock brakes, and other modern conveniences, making it a true driver’s car.
