VIDEO: The Twin Turbocharged “Lucky Charm” F40

It’s been nearly 30 years since the last F40 hit the Ferrari showrooms, but its legacy lives on with both fans and owners alike. It was designed as a celebration of Ferrari’s 40th-anniversary in 1987, but it also raised the bar in terms of performance for the Prancing Horse.

Packing a twin-turbocharged 2.9L V8, featuring the best parts from America, Italy, Japan and Germany, it was a representation of the best technology that was available at the time. The twin-snail, small-displacement V8 managed 471hp and 426 lb-ft of torque, and could fetch a top speed of 199mph and a 0-60 of 4.2 seconds. It was the highest-performing cars of its era, and many kids of the ’80s had its poster on the wall — your author included.

These days, it can fetch quite a bit more than its original asking price, but you can make an argument that it’s worth every penny; merely based in its historical significance and style alone.

This one, belongs to one¬†Jasbir Dhillon, a passionate F40 owner who has a very emotional, and sentimental connection to the car. It’s a story that Petrolicious captured perfectly, and it’s best left to Jasbir himself to tell the tale.
