This Turbocharged Ferrari F40 Is 1 of 19 720HP Le Mans-Spec Specimens Ever Built

First released in 1987, the Prancing Horse’s F40 is undoubtedly one of the most legendary Italian sportscars of all time, as the final supercar to be overseen by the great Enzo Ferrari as well as the first production car to break the 200mph barrier. And while each of the 1,311 specimens produced is highly-elite and sought-after, Ferrari produced just 19 even more high-performance F40 variants with its LM — or “Le Mans” — specification.

Created as an offshoot of Ferrari’s GTO Evoluzione project, the F40 LM was developed and built by Michelotto and featured a slew of noteworthy upgrades. Weighing nearly 700lbs less than the standard F40 at just 2,314lbs, the F40 LM boasted a reinforced chassis, more extreme and aerodynamic bodywork with pronounced front and rear wings, up-specced suspension and braking hardware, a competition-spec gearbox, wider OZ wheels wrapped in racing slicks, fixed headlights set behind Lexan covers, and a fully-gutted, roll cage-equipped race interior. Designated F120 B, the F40 LM utilized the same 2.9L V8 engine found in the regular model, though the addition of new cams, a new fuel injection setup, Behr intercoolers, and twin turbochargers allowed the boosted eight-banger to pump out 720hp — a nearly 250hp bump over the standard F40. This pristine, competition-used Ferrari F40 LM is currently for sale through Hertfordshire, England’s DK Engineering where its price is available upon request.
