Meet the Guy Who Raced a Ferrari F40

Video

He's also an Italian exotic car specialist, possibly one of the best jobs in the world.

The Ferrari F40 is a very special car. Simply put, there’s nothing quite like it. A true one-of-a-kind; immensely powerful yet comes with no traction control or other fancy electronics. It should be handled only by those who really know what they’re doing. Otherwise, well, we’ve seen too many F40 crashes over the years. But for John Pogson, racing an F40 is in his blood. He became a Ferrari mechanic at a young age, but soon left the repair and maintenance side of the business for racing.

In the 1990s, he raced the beloved F40…and lived to talk about the experience. Pogson also runs his own Italian exotic car shop, appropriately named Italia Autosport. He's a true petrolhead in every possible way.
