looking for F40

The ideal car would be a very early car, with sliding plexiglass wind, nonfat, non adj. low km. I am open to paying more for such a car. I don't think I will ever make money on these cars since they are now becoming very expensive.

Victor is very reputable. He has quite a few cars available that are not listed on the site.

Hello, I'm not a Dealer, I do collaborate directly with collectors especially in Italy. There are really rare cars available for sale, included two interesting NO cat F40 for sale with low KM. Just contact PM. I'm available to meet you in person before starting any collaboration.

Some people prefer the non-active suspension, both from a "purity" stand point and maintenance stand point. Some also comment that they like the way the car behaves less than the non-adjust. The market "wisdom" is also that non-cat is the most powerful, and people like the look of the early cars with sliding perspex windows. So the highest value F40's are non-adjust, non-cat, and perspex windows.

Not everyone agrees with this, and I think the active suspension works very well.

Thank you for the explanation Onno. I see what you mean. I agrre with you , for me the adjust suspension is very important , and the normal windows a plus.

looking for F40

Thanks to all you guys I appreciate all your comments. The market is getting crazy. offered $800K on a 5000 mile US car and they changed their minds and now want 900K! So I said I will wait until after the market corrections and buy it from you for half price. There is a lot of cheap money around and investors are now using Ferrari as a hedge against bad markets.

I am still interested in a noncat, nonadj persplex windo car and would happily pay $800K.
please email me directly if there is such a car. I don't get to check all my messages regularly.

At that type of price, buy a Euro car and import it to the US. Early cars are now DOT/EPA exempt.

Indeed - a lot more of this will be happening according to a broker friend.. It's going to have an impact on the 87-88 cars and will hedge up the later cars as people start to see the potential of them over in the US.

Asking prices seem to be widening now, fingers crossed all the straight non-clocked cars will start to really show their worth/desirability!

My insurance is due in 2 weeks time (wow its been a year already!) and I need to seriously consider what value to put on the agreed value.
