    Came across this on Instagram. For a car that had limited success in motorsports, it definitely looked the part. C4C66F36-EBD9-4A82-8704-1071FEA0B99E.jpeg

    Nice to see such a beautifully restored car (Morris Cowley Six) in 'normal' use.

    As I have stated many times already, I'm a Porsche guy.
    But if I had to pick between a 959 and an F40 there would be no question.
    F40 all day.

    Haha yeah yeah.
    While undeniably badass, that big old body molded wing just tickles my fancy.
    Not so much on the F50 though. Funny how that works.

    The one and ONLY time I have ever seen an F40 in action on the road (not just stationary) was when i was probably around 10 years old, maybe a little younger.
    Every Christmas, my family and I would go to the middle of nowhere Florida (Dade City) to cut down a Christmas tree.
    It was there on an empty stretch of road that one BLASTED by us.
    I'll never forget it.

    I love the 959, but for me the F40 is the absolute end.

    I’d have mine in white with factory updates.

    Indeed.
    The Liberty Walk F40 is very high up my top favorite cars list.

    My father-in-law had a non-M Z4C. That was a fun little car.
    He got rid of it for a 911 and he still says he misses it sometimes.

    I would love to have an "original" M coupe. It's on my list of Bimmers to own along with a Alpine White 95 M3

    The car can be used on any racetrack when there is the open pit for race car on non street legal cars ( or you just take the racetrack for one day for you, same if you have a vulcan on FXX K ).
    They will sell this fast, very fast.

    Vulcan and FXX come with track support, and need track support. Plus the FXX has its own race series.

    Just saying it’s a limited market.

    I still sometimes regret not getting the z4mc instead. But the useable backseat and huge trunk have come in handy many a time.

    I still can’t find a good replacement for it. I tried to like the e9x and f30... too big and too heavy.

    Gorgeous, I have a manual, coupe with no sunroof in carbon black. Fantastic car! A good investment also as prices are getting strong

    I knew about the F40 but didn't really know about till I did some research. And at $1.3 million, it caught my attention. Had a small poster in my bedroom as well but I never knew much about it. Here's the video I saw. Very very cool :thumbsup:
