Actually was looking to compare the laptime of the Astra OPC to the other cars. (I am really forward to have Astra/Vectra OPC some day :) ) when I realised there are Ferraris involved in this track. Though might be a source of a good discussion;)

Boxer, why don't you take your F40 to stretch its legs in Nurburgring? That would solve one problem. Then we would just need an Enzo and an F50

and about what you said, I don't think the 599 would be that fast, considering that Walter Röhl made it in 7:28 with a Porsche Carrera GT, that is more of a track car than the 599

I think the 599 would make it in a little bit less than 8 minutes, maybe about 7:45

I don't think the F40 has the brakes to turn in a really fast time.
I always say it's best if the car is kept stock.
But dont you think it is possible to install some of the newer Ferrari brakes in your beast of a car? F430, Enzo. They dont even have to be Ferrari brakes, you can custom upgrade them to the point where your F40 can brake 100-0 in 33 meters. I was asking at brembo brakes system not long ago. They have custom brakes for almost every model/maker. The price was ~10k for thier top full brake system.
And you know what, if your brakes are up to date, I can easily see the F40 being one of the fastest cars today with its stock engine. The engine is bursting from power and should be left untouched.

You can fit an uprated brake systems on the F40. Problem is that you then have to change the wheels.
Now thats not a real problem, is it;)
I know the wheels of the F40 are recognisable detail, but you can get new even better looking wheels larger to fit your upgraded brakes.
You can then safely store the old brakes and wheels in your basement, where they can wait for the day when day will be used again.

It works for me. I have 3 sets of wheels and tyres.

The F40 weighs only a ton. The large spoiler garanties high downforce. It has very stiff suspension and with the new brakes installed, I can really see you beating the Enzo on a track.
A car as simple as M3 needs only 33 meters to brake to full stop. Your car is much more lighter than anything outthere these days. You can probably brake in less than 30 meters and take on any car on the track.

the idea of having a better brake in the F40 really sounds good, but I think that's just because the F40 in question isn't mine hehehehe

if it was sitting in my garage, it would be 100% original Maranello blood
