We recently, announced a new column on this publication called “Reader’s Rides”. In each article, we will be sharing a cool ride sent to us from one of our readers. The hope is that this will allowing our community to get closer together.
Today we have this Ferrari F40.
The Ferrari F40 is a poster supercar. I remember when I was about nine years old, seeing a poster of it and wishing I would one day own one. It came out as Ferrari’s answer to the Porsche 959 and it was an incredible drive. Powered by a turbocharged V8, the prancing horse could hit a top speed of 201 mph.
The F40 took a different approach to performance than the 959. The Ferrari would use analog technics of making the car as light as possible and giving it as much power as possible at the time. Where the Porsche 959 is a technical marvel, the Ferrari F40 is a marvel of old school performance. Things such as the paint being so thin that you can see the carbon weave in the body and the interior features exposed glue, show just how serious the Italian sports car maker was about pure speed and nothing else.
This F40 was photographed during a Concourse d’Elegance in San Luis Obispo, California. The car was one of the most popular Ferraris on display and there were a good number of them in the show.
If you have a ride that you would like for us to share, send us a picture and you just may appear on our on-line publication.

Our hope is to share a new ride each week (if we get enough submissions we will share one daily).
