This 1992 Ferrari F40 has established a new world record after fetching €1.12 million at a recent Coys auction. It was sold at the 43rd AVD Oldtimer Grand Prix in Nurburgring, Germany on August 8 and it actually was one of the last privately owned F40s and was bought by an unknown German collector. Just 1,311 units were ever made and this particular car appears to be in a very good condition so with time its value will likely increase if the new owner will take good care of it. As a reminder, the F40 is actually the last model that was signed off by company founder Enzo Ferrari before he passed away.
Besides the 1992 Ferrari F40, at the same Coys auction someone bought a 1932 BMW 328 Roadster for €562,000 while a 2000 Ford GT went under the hammer for €227,000. Other cars that were sold include a 1971 Lamborghini Espada SII for €145,000 (new record) and a 2003 Ferrari 360 Modena for €182,000.
Needless to say, the 1992 Ferrari F40 was by far the star of the auction and now it’s officially the world’s most expensive F40, even though there have been rumors about other cars selling for a lot more than that.
