Need this trackcar.....







Michelotto was commissioned to update six F40s into F40 LM GTEs between 1993 and 1998. Each car was rebuilt to the then current BPR GT Championship specifications and so were built beyond F40 LM specs. The major upgrade was the tipo F120 B GTE engines which were revised beyond F40 LM specs and horsepower to a staggering 800bhp in unrestricted form or to 660bhp with the air–restrictors in place.

During the BPR Championship the F40 LM GTEs were easily the best looking cars on the grid despite their age. Only six GTEs were ever built by Michelotto: one in 1994, three in 1995, another in 1996 and one final car in 1998. Four went racing, all of which were updated to the latest specification each season. These four F40 LM GTEs were exceptionally quick cars that could out–perform McLaren’s mighty F1 GTRs, the GTEs taking four international wins and finishing on the podium 13 times between 1994 and 1996.

The F40 LM GTE we have on offer is one of two built for an American collector and was never actively raced. It features the 800 hp unrestricted tipo F120 B GTE engine and is the ultimate weapon to utterly devastate your neighbor’s rather mundane F40 LM at the next Ferrari club track event. Fully serviced and race–ready. In concours condition and priced right at $750,000

What a waste of a good road car. I'm sorry, but for three quarters of a million dollars, just buy a purpose-built race car instead of something that was originally built as a street car. Given, it's a sexy track car, but it seems like a total waste.

If you buy this car then maintanence is the least of your worries.

F40s were never "road cars".. they were purpose built cars to begin with. The Michelleot's are an extension of the F40s purpose. And they look fuggin goood!



Correction to Michael Sheehans website as well as other websites on the BPR status. McLaren dominated BPR with ten 1st place finishes in 95 and nine in 96. F40s were fast, but the problems with F40s were that they broke. (In order to finish first, first you must finish.) F40s were the only cars to give the McLaren serious competition when they competed against each other in 95, 96. (McLarens weren't racing in 94.) McLaren: Overall win at Lemans 24 hrs 95, 1st in class in 97.

Ferrari's BPR history:

Just the facts. Not trying to be pro one or the other.. as I've enjoyed seeing the F40s on the grid next to the McLarens. Just trying to correct a salesman's/historian's overzealous twist on facts.

Regards,
James R
