How much is it in U.S. dollars? Rims seem like super ugly after market rims. I sure do miss my F40 I sold last year. I would love to get another F40 hopefully sooner than later.

Roughly about $200k. It is a Euro model so would not be eligible for US import.
If there is a F40 for $200K, I would buy it in a heart beat, no questions asked as long as it is original and sound. I would buy a car that is not serviced as well. I know times are tough, but for $200K, I will scrap up the money somehow and would give anyone who finds me one a handsome finder`s fee as well. Isn`t there a statue of limitations on importing a car?

Statue of Limitations? Will have to research that but thinking not. SMOG, lights, safety etc. are always there unless car is in classic territory or one might register it as a historic vehicle....

Ferrari Boxers were all made in Italy but I think after 20 years you could have freely import them from what I have heard. How about the Euro cars that are here in the U.S.? Why can`t we import the F40 and federalize it? How much could it cost?

well, talking of CA, I know the SMOG would be an issue. Federalizing a grey is done all the time but there are good and marginal shops...not sure many are in the bus anymore.

I have looked into Federalizing both an F50 and an F40. On the F50, you can only do it with a 1995 year car and cost is around $70k. On the F40 it is not economically viable.

The only solution is to wait the 25 years and then both are DOT/EPA exempt.

Good things come to those who wait. 4 more years for the first F40's.

Onno
It will be interesting to watch how the "spread" between F40' US and Europe prices will narrow.
