Before his death in 1988, Enzo Ferrari unveiled the Ferrari F40. The first supercar to surpass the 200 mph mark, its twin-turbo V8, 471 hp could reach 60 mph in less than four seconds. The F40 was the first modern supercar that not only combined racing engineering but road manners as well, a formula standard set and followed since by Lamborghini and many others.
In honor of the F40 and to celebrate its 25th anniversary, the world’s largest gathering of F40s was held Sunday at the Silverstone race course in England. 62 F40s took part in the annual Silverstone Classic held every year to celebrate and race old sports cars.
