Watch A Feisty Ferrari F40 LM Get Thrashed Around Goodwood


We imagine both the car and driver are getting quite a workout.

The Ferrari F40 is one of the most iconic supercars of all time, but its hardcore race-spec sibling isn’t as well known. Ferrari never intended the F40 to be converted into a race car, but the automaker was persuaded by Daniel Marin, managing director of French Ferrari importer Charles Pozzi SA, to team up with Michelotto to create a race-ready F40 that adhered to IMSA regulations. The result was the feisty F40 LM (Le Mans), limited to only 19 units.

A more radical version of what was at the time the most powerful production car in the world, the F40 LM boasted a reworked chassis, aggressive body kit, stiffer suspension with wider wheels, and race-inspired front and rear wings. To save extra weight, the pop-up headlights were replaced with larger single units.

As a result, it weighed just 2,341 pounds, and was powered by a monstrous 2.9-liter twin-turbo V8 that produced over 850 horsepower. Taming all that excess power without the aid of modern driver assists, you would imagine the F40 LM to be a handful to drive. Drivetribe has posted a video of the F40 LM getting thrashed around the Goodwood Motor Circuit by owner Chris Wilson, who does a respectable job at keeping the racing machine composed. We imagine both the car and driver are getting an exhaustive workout.
