Fact:

F40 < La Ferrari
F40 < F1
F40 < LFA

Not that I hate the F40, far from that.



KingOfJricho: Get ready to snap pics of the Ferrari 458 Monte Carlo. It could be there some time in summer.

There is no fathomable way that the LFA represents anything close to what the F40 represents. There was no Nissan that could run down an F40, or a number of other contemporary super cars that were quicker, prettier of faster.

The F40 was so far ahead of any other car available at the time, even the 959 that comparing it to the Also Ran Lexus is just silly. The fact that Ferrari was far from the success it is now further speaks to its significance. Sure, an F458 can outrun an F40 now, but the 458 can also outrun that overpriced Lexus.

The F1 I agree with you about, as it was also unique to its time. The LaFezz will face stout competition from the P1 and 918 and will likely not be all that memorable, sort of like the LFA and F50.

Well, I used the sign "<" to show my preference, not what is better. And for me it is not possible to say "x better then y" because they are just all so different. It is like people, there a good people and bad people, but you can't rank them. The the one person you fall in love with is not necesarily the best.

As the F40 is your "love" maybe you can fap on this, which I do like.

Not that I'd say no to an F50, but this is far from Ferrari's best effort.

Interesting, that does look like a 330GTC. My dad had a British Racing Green one, that he sold about a month before Enzo died, for a Pantera. Talk about colossal levels of d'oh!

F50>F40 in my eyes. Still my favorite top Ferrari especially in GT1 trim. The GT1 maybe the best sounding car I've ever heard.

I'm pretty sure it was EVO magazine that crowned the F50 as the best in a 288GTO/F40/F50/Enzo comparison test.

Wow.....what an unusual colour to have a Ferrari in

I don't think I've EVER seen a green Ferrari (of any shade of green let alone BRG).

I don't see anything strange about an Italian racing car in British racing green.

That being said, I agree that the color choice is quite odd. Though BRG, maroon, brown, and navy were popular colors for cars in the 60s.

This is lighter than his, but still pretty close. His had the natural tan interior, cuoio.

Spotted this hot little Italian during lunch on Tuesday. There was also a convertible to my right but I was trying to be slick and get out of there.

Love the 8C coupe. Still hoping they figure out how to put the proper number of pedals in the 4C too.

Well quite a few people were underwhelmed by the F50 so I had to get a shot of this one when I drove by it. Talk about a rarity!
