This was more than enough power for the 1,050kg F40 GT to handle, while oversized Brembo brakes, evolved from the F40 LM, ensured it had adequate stopping power. Michelotto later converted the car to F40 GTE specs, fitting larger wheels to fill out the wider carbon-fiber body, while carbon-fiber was used to further reinforce the chassis. Output grew to 620hp, weight increased by 50kg, and even bigger Brembo brakes were installed. Having changed hands a few times, the car is once again up for sale and comes with documented racing history as well as spare wheels, shocks and wheel nuts. Asking price is a cool 1,095,000 Euros.
