Dear Mike

Thank you for sharing this very, very well done video. IMO, the guy's comment is very wise and 100% correct! The F40 is a all time great car within the group of absolute supercars, while the Scuderia is a great special car, with state of the art technique based on normal production cars. All carmakers around the world demonstrate clearly how extremely difficult it is today to build a extremly light car with todays safety rules (Carrera GT 1450kg, Lamborghini's 1450-1700kg's, 911 Porsches 1350 - 1700kg's etc.). I would assume that if a modern car may challenge a F40 weightwise today (1'100kg) then the "raw" car needs to weigh app. 900 kg (!!) and an additional 200kg's will be added on safety installations and measurments. Saying that it seems more probable that such a car may not have a 12 Cylinder steel block (F50) but rather a 6 to 8 cylinder alloy (plus Turbos probably) block. The car needs to be short and narrow and mainly build of a carbontube and alloy/magnesium credentials before and after.

In regards to this silly comparison yes is quiet entertaining, but how could anyone compare a F40 to a F430 S, the beauty about the F40 is that in fact Mr Enzo Ferrari last production supercar when he was still alive that alone is already NO comparison!

Very true, the last car under Enzo Ferrari wil remain a legend for years and years to come, and the 430 S is just a wonder of modern day automotive technology
They're both great, in their own times...
