Comments - Is Buying a Ferrari F40 the Best Way to Spend $1m?

Published: Jul 05, 2013
Description: Ferrari built just over 1,300 examples of the legendary F40, so when one comes up for sale on the private market it’s a rare opportunity to invest in motoring royalty. When rolled out in 1987, it was...

The answer is: yes, without a doubt!
David Jefferis Jul 05, 2013
Byoot. Still have the Bburago 1:18 scale model, which was all I could afford at the time. Still is actually...
Tim Collgate Jul 05, 2013
I don't know for me it'd be a hard choice between this and a pagani huarya
Bobaloo Anderson Jul 05, 2013
I would pay 10 million for an F40
phillthegman Jul 05, 2013
venom gt... or if ssc ever gets there shit together the tuatara the new pagani..... so many more options
Chris Marshall Ernst Jul 05, 2013
Good luck finding a McLaren F1 for $1M. They go for $3-$5M nowadays.
matt.piccolo.773 Jul 05, 2013
Love the f40. best ferrari to date
Sam Oglesby Jul 05, 2013
This is easily the best way to spend $1m
Cort Grawehr Jul 05, 2013
No he died 1 year after the f40 was launched.
npalowitch Jul 05, 2013
Is the Enzo not Enzo-approved?
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yep. Just saw it on carsales
Zain Christison Jul 05, 2013
It's for sale on carsales.com.au and is the most expensive car on there.
Connor Scanlon Jul 05, 2013
This isn't even about Australia and I bet the person who buys it isn't Australian either. It's just for sale there...
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!!!
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Need life advice? Come to Jackson here, he seems to think he knows everything. Haha. Idiot.
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
@Gary I think all generations are equally stupid, but the older stupid people like to think the younger generation is the worst. It's always been that way.
jenni_drives Jul 05, 2013
Wedding car in the background. And it's funny that the college student said "A's".
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Sounds good Patrick!
Dylan Bruder Jul 05, 2013
Sweet
Ed Ashby Jul 05, 2013
If I emigrate to oz I'll get a landcruiser with a tin boat on top, not an f40
Jack Howard Jul 05, 2013
The only thing I learned about Australia in school is that everything wants to kill you.
Zachary Bearb Jul 05, 2013
I'm about
Zachary Bearb Jul 05, 2013
Are you guys fucking serious it was a joke! And I never said anything bad about Australia, I would love to go. It's messed up how y'all question my intelligences ... Not knowing shit about me ?! Get to know what I do and what one about
TC Youngblood Jul 05, 2013
Americans are dumbasses. Aussies are dumbasses, Asians, Indians, Brits, everyone. Every generation! Can we talk about cars?! Please?!
Garrett Middleton Jul 05, 2013
@ Gary, we aren't all dumbasses, but there's definitely a lot in my generation.
Shane Sharma Jul 05, 2013
@bobaloo so do i
Bobaloo Anderson Jul 05, 2013
I wanna go to Australia and meet Marty and Moog from mcm
Yaseen Essack Jul 05, 2013
Wow what an epic car
Christian Young Jul 05, 2013
Some faith in humanity has been restoed
Christian Young Jul 05, 2013
Gary not the entire younger generation is screwed. My little bro who is 12 (im in college) gets A's in school , is a little angel, if not a pain, and never gets in trouble.
Scott Tapper Jul 05, 2013
I would love to visit australia, its full of awesome vacation spots, lots of beachs, nice citys, also they have one of the finest military in the world, i also include new zealand, so those people dont know anything, please dont say anything
Patrick Schalk Jul 05, 2013
Gary, I apologize for Zachs stupidity. I wanna visit Australia and New Zealand really bad. Just wish it was so freakin expensive for a plane ticket. My goal is to do some hoonage in a Ute, get wasted at a local pub, and learn how to surf.
Gary Alaina Jul 05, 2013
Seriously if you actually get out and have more than half a brain, you will find beautiful things about most countries in the world. I don't know why but Americans can be so bladdy naive and arrogant when it comes to the rest of the world. Not all Americans, mostly the younger (fucked) generation.
Gary Alaina Jul 05, 2013
V, you obviously don't no much bout Australia, we got loads of classic bands and great cars. Australians have also invented lots of amazing things.
zed06 Jul 05, 2013
only good thing that ever came out of australia is ac/dc.
Keith Anderson Jul 05, 2013
@Zachary, yeah it is! Lol what's wrong with your school system? jk get out and explore the world!
Paul McGuire Jul 05, 2013
@Zachary I mean!
Paul McGuire Jul 05, 2013
@Aaron I suppose it's better that recognising it from a gay porn
Aaron Abely Jul 05, 2013
Best thing that has ever or will ever come out if Ferrari.
Zachary Bearb Jul 05, 2013
Is it messed up the only reason I know about this place is because of finding nemo?
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!!!
Luke Purdy Jul 05, 2013

Yeah to me, a safe investment, would totally do it
Christian Young Jul 07, 2013
Maybe not. Idk
Christian Young Jul 07, 2013
I'd bet that by the time I post this it will be sold. It is July 7 in the US right now
James Salaba Jul 06, 2013
Definitely worth it!
Ventilatedbrain Jul 06, 2013
missing the point guys .. a mil now is 2 mil in 10 years later guaranteed... this isn't supposed to be a daily driver..its a very safe investment
Jesse Andersen Jul 06, 2013
Or get every old SS, Mopar, and a Shelby or two. Cars aren't worth a million that's house territory. Talk to me when I'm rich and ill have a different answer, haha.
Robi Dunay Jul 06, 2013
@Eric haha yeah it was
Eric Dare Jul 06, 2013
That was on car buzz last month wasn't it?
Nicholas Morissette Jul 05, 2013
There's a three-car set for sale in Massachusetts. It consists of an F40, an F50, and an Enzo, each with only 200 miles on the clock. The asking price for the set is $6,200,000. You can't buy any one of them separately.
grant.vandoornik Jul 05, 2013
From what I've heard it sounds like they're typically priced around 500k, so that's probably not the best way to spend 1 million dollars.
Cort Grawehr Jul 05, 2013
By the time I'll have my share of a million dollars I'll be able to import a zonda.
steve.kraft.505 Jul 05, 2013
Short answer, yes. Long answer, hell yes.
Saeed Sid Jul 05, 2013
I think a similar one was for sale at maranello motorsports in melbourne for around $700,000 about a year ago?
Andrew Palmer Jul 05, 2013
No thank you. If I had hundreds of millions and the asking price fell out of my pockets on the couch, sure...barring obscene wealth, no, no it's not my cup of old legendary car.
Aaron Abely Jul 05, 2013
A mil on a car, any car, is bonkers. But, guess I'm bonkers caused I'd do it.
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
Then I'm clearly misunderstood
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
U don't troll?.... Did u really just say that, you troll harder then most have tried in recent months.
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
I don't troll either nick! Being proud of my country isn't in any way trolling man. Wake up to yourself.
Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
@Mitchell not at all I come for the car articles I don't get involved in arguments and I certainly don't troll
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
Hahaha!! A jerk? A moron? That's a little hypocritical, don't you think Nick?
Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
@Mitchell you really are a jerk. Leave him be you moron
abraham.mendoza.39 Jul 06, 2013
Boom, logic
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Or u could not be an ignorant little shit and understand English isn't the language of the world, and this app is global
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
'Gurjit' or whatever your name is, it's quite clear that English certainly is NOT your first language. So please, for the sake of everyone here, please at least use google translate before commenting
Gurjit Singh Jul 05, 2013
lol mitchell u are a dumbfuck. im not jealous of anything buddy its ur kangaroo ass being an annoying troll on here
Jacob Burford Jul 05, 2013
A car we can all agree on that is truly amazing!
Jul 05, 2013
Though this car is in Aus, that thing doesn't matter. it is made in Italy... so... Oh yeah Italia !!
Zeus Mocha Jul 05, 2013
Oh and really nice ^^^
Zeus Mocha Jul 05, 2013

Justin Mancuso Jul 05, 2013
@Mitchell I lmao when you said to guljit if he was mad it wasn't made in India lol.
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Nick man, come on. Stop acting like a child. His app is all about cars, not telling others to shut up :/
Daniel Young Jul 05, 2013
A beautiful can, and a huge fan of it! However, I would rather have a 959.
Nick Rowe Jul 05, 2013
@Mitchell stfu
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Jealous because its not in India?
Gurjit Singh Jul 05, 2013
stfu
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!
Christian Young Jul 07, 2013
Mitchell, I don't care. It takes people like me to bring it up to a moldy sponge. Otherwise it would be lower. So not combined, on average
Nick Rowe Jul 07, 2013
@Mitchell your IQ is less than a coconut
Mitchell Cook Jul 07, 2013
The combined IQ of all of you pro-American dumbasses= a mouldy sponge
Joey McClary Jul 06, 2013
Jake, the Korean War hasn't ended. It has been in a state of cease fire for decades and decades. No winner, no loser... yet.
Jake Dula Jul 05, 2013
Even if the US won Vietnam, did everyone forget about Korea? That definitely was not a victory... Maybe not an outright loss, but not a victory either.
Patrick Schalk Jul 05, 2013
There's a gorgeous F40 right here and everyone is talking about Vietnam. Crazy.
Austin Wong Jul 05, 2013
No one won the vietnamese war...
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Jk, you're pretty damn accurate. Thank god I got a good education.
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Thanks Noah, you do a great job representing America
Nick Williams Jul 05, 2013
Wow you're actually still trying to......wow. Noah just because you saved 2 of every animal from extinction it doesn't give you the right to talk out of your arse
Noah Collins Jul 05, 2013
Sooooo if someone surrenders and "loses" then there is a winner...America
Nick Williams Jul 05, 2013
Hahaha you patriotic american dumbasses. You don't realise that you are the joke of everyone in the world. Only an idiot would try to justify that America won the Vietnam war. Maybe go and finish school, then try and win an argument. Idiots.....
jenni_drives Jul 05, 2013
You all fail at basic English.
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Zachary bloab. What the hell are you saying???
Ed Ashby Jul 05, 2013
Simmer down all you in the colonies
Zachary Bearb Jul 05, 2013
Look at Australia growing some balls good job guys now y'all sit down for make the big dogs mad(bloaks) for a (Yankee)
abraham.mendoza.39 Jul 05, 2013
Murica! F yeah!
austin.wilson.3576 Jul 05, 2013
So....the car is nice.
Jorge Gonzalez Jul 05, 2013
I say fuck the whole world. I claim no affiliation to any country.
Riley Miller Jul 05, 2013
Really isn't even that good looking.
greg.tchilinguirian Jul 05, 2013
Ignore the sore losers.. America FTW
Eric Dare Jul 05, 2013
You Americans are pathetic for thinking you are the best, why do you have to be the best at everything? It's comical really
Aaron Crisp Jul 05, 2013
Lets stop measuring our dicks and get back to cars.
Joey McClary Jul 05, 2013
America won in Nam. It just took awhile longer. Look at them, they all drink Coke and smoke Marlboro cigarettes.
Brandon Carr Jul 05, 2013
There's always this ONE guy V
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 05, 2013
Everybody loses in war except the politicians running the show.
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 05, 2013
@noah, sorry but for your information the USA is not "undefeated in wars". In fact, nobody actually ever really "wins" a war, it's only who gives up first is the loser...just look up what happened after US endeavors in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
Austin Wong Jul 05, 2013
Mitchell troll level over 9000
Justin Mancuso Jul 05, 2013
Exactly right Noah
Noah Collins Jul 05, 2013
We say 'Murica' because America is the best country in the world, undefeated in wars, and home to the most accomplished company's in America (apple and Microsoft) Australia copies America with their currency, but they make a fantastic car! Holden's are AWESOME!! Lets drop the hating on Australia, he is just being proud of his nation like we were yesterday!
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Good blokes!
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Thanks Ben and Eric! :)
Daniel Kenneth Babler Jul 05, 2013
Eric it's 'Merica We're not all "yanks" And I don't give a shit if you like us or not
Eric Dare Jul 05, 2013
I would way rather him say that then all of you stupid yanks who always say 'Mercia, get a fucking education and learn how to type. No one in the world likes your dumbass country
Ben Knorr Jul 05, 2013
don't listen to em Mitchell. Every time I see "yeah Australia!" I laugh. Your alright man, ignore the haters.
Zain Christison Jul 05, 2013
I reckon. Stfu. I'm Australian and I'm proud but you are seriously annoying the hell out of everyone on here. Seriously stfu.
William Downs Jul 05, 2013
No one is hating on an annoying ass kid, there is nothing to hate on. Only thing your doing is giving Australians a bad image
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Wow man! You're such a hater. Haha. Just sit back and chill out yeah?
William Downs Jul 05, 2013
VvV--- this guy really needs to stfu, we all get it u like Australia, no one really cares now that u have told us on almost every page of this article and countless others that feature anything remotely Australian
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Hahaha this guy! V
Chris Huff Jul 05, 2013
Shut up
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013

Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
@William it's always 1.. Haha might I ask what bike forum it is?
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
I know nick I have an ass load of Aussie friends from my bike forum, I linked them to this, needless to say there disappointed
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
Ahhh nick
Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
Is this Mitchell guy serious? Wow just to be clear everyone not all Australians are like this..
abraham.mendoza.39 Jul 06, 2013
Wooowww lame comeback.
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
Oh look guys! It's jake, the transformer!
Jake Dula Jul 05, 2013
...says Mitchell the spamming moron from the prison country? *That's* embarassing.
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Hahahaa!!! Til then, stop commenting Jackson. You're embarrassing yourself man :/ it's somehwhat painful
Nick Williams Jul 05, 2013
Hey Mitch lay off wacko jacko. I'm sure when he gets to secondary school he'll learn how to make a decent comeback
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Wow jacko! Such an original comeback man! I wonder where you got your inspiration from to write such a comment!
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Nick & Mitchell= Cuter couple?
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Hahaha!! So true Nick!
Nick Williams Jul 05, 2013
Jackson & Justin=cute couple
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Haha man it's cool
Justin Mancuso Jul 05, 2013
Lol Jackson j didn't realize he did that on every page
joshua.robbins.5249 Jul 05, 2013
Ya I would love an F40. It's been my favorite Ferrari for years. You and the car need perfect harmony for things to stay kosher.. Cause having no traction control or stability control. No abs, you need to be on top of your game to drive one of these at high speeds.
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Lol I like how you single me out when the previous page has like 5 people saying the same thing
Justin Mancuso Jul 05, 2013
Jackson shut up at least he's proud of his country and j definitely respect that.
zed06 Jul 05, 2013
this era of car has good suspension tech and still computer free.(relatively)
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
HAHAHAHAHA!! This guy! V
Jackson Michael Jul 05, 2013
Stfu asswipe
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Yeah Australia!
Christian Young Jul 07, 2013
And I died again. vvvv
Demian Koster Jul 06, 2013
The F40 is rubbish
Ben Knorr Jul 06, 2013
sabelt. saving up for a set of these.
Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
Jesus this guy..
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
I'd be a pretty intelligent 5 year old then, William :)
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Says the 5 yr old Australian child
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
I swear you're 10
Mitchell Cook Jul 06, 2013
Then stop arguing nick, you sook! Hahaha
Nick Rowe Jul 06, 2013
@Nick Williams wasn't a comeback at all merely saying him posting "yeah Australia" on every page is annoying. I come here for the cars not the arguments
Nick Williams Jul 05, 2013
@nick the only things getting old are your comebacks. Seriously don't even bother trying anymore it's embarrassing for you and awkward for everyone else
zed06 Jul 05, 2013
when i see that interior i'm thinking 2500 hundred miles before sunset.
Mitchell Cook Jul 05, 2013
Nick, if you don't like it, leave man! Stop the hate!
