Toto Wolff, team boss and part owner of Mercedes-Benz AMG Formula 1, unloads cars from his supercar collection again.
The latest is a Ferrari F40 which is currently for sale by Tom Hartley Jr.the same UK retailer that sold Wolff’s in 2021 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, Ferrari Enzoand Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 65 Black Series.
Wolff, himself an enthusiastic racing driver, said at the time that he was selling the cars because he simply didn’t have the time to drive them. Given the record 24 laps on the 2023 F1 calendarLack of time may also be the reason for the sale of the F40.
Wolff’s F40 was recently completely overhauled by experienced restorer Autofficina Bonini Carlo and has just 5,536 kilometers (3,440 miles) on its odometer. The car has chassis number ZFFGJ34B000087007 and is one of 27 F40s originally delivered to Spain.
It is offered for sale with full documentation including a title from the classic car department of Ferrari Classiche confirming the original chassis, bodywork, engine and gearbox.
During its heyday, the F40 was the fastest, most powerful and most expensive model ever sold by Ferrari. Power comes from a 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 that was officially rated at 471 horsepower when new. The engine is a derivative of the 288 GTO Evoluzione’s mill and, thanks to some unique upgrades, enabled the F40 to become the first production Ferrari to exceed 199 mph.
