Drifting A Ferrari F40 On Dirt Looks Like A Blast

Video / Comments

This is far better than just storing the car in a garage.

The Ferrari F40 is arguably the Italian automaker's most iconic creation, and it looks and sounds spectacular even today. Sure, it's nowhere near as quick as the exotics that Maranello produces now, but while modern-day Ferraris like the new 296 GTB are far more powerful, it's the F40 that most Tifosi would rather have. However, if someone were to gift you an F40, you'd likely do just as the super-rich do and park it out of sight to preserve it and to ensure that no ill befalls it. But not all of the wealthy buy cars just to look at - some actually use them, and properly.

As you can see, this particular F40 has a vinyl livery applied, along with the OZ wheels, rear diffuser, and rear wing seen on the extremely valuable F40 LM. We can also see a roll cage inside, which is probably necessary considering that this particular F40 gets driven quite a lot. Here, the car is being driven at Horsepower Hill, which Heveningham Concours in England hosts as a timed 1/8 mile run up the estate's main drive. It was inaugurated in 2018, and the first car to compete in the challenge was also a Ferrari, the timeless 250 GTO, although we doubt that car got taken to the grounds' dirt oval.

As much as we hate seeing a classic like the F40 crashing, we appreciate that the car is being used properly and is providing the owner with fun and excitement. After all, what's the point of earning millions and spending some of that money on the finest cars ever made if you never get to experience them to the full? Sure, this F40 may not be worth a great deal compared to the pristine models that remain garage-kept and unused, but you only live once, and we can think of no better way to use that life than to make the most of your opportunities to get behind the wheel and have a blast. Keep up the good work sir.
