Video worth watching: Ferrari F40 GT thrashed around in a barn gymkhana session
We are fairly acquainted with the image of limited production supercars being stored away in collector's garages, gathering dust and rotting away, never to see the light of day (the accidental poet strikes). As car enthusiasts, this fact boils our blood since supercars are meant to be driven, preferably on race tracks, where they get to fulfill their purpose of existence. A certain YouTube user going by the name TaxTheRich100, agrees with our train of thought, by giving an extensive Ferrari collection a good pedal-mashing session on a regular basis.
In the most recent iteration, a highly sought-after F40 GT is seen drifting on a gymkhana stage set up with cones around a farm barn, with its twin turbos whistling away. According to DK Engineering, this F40 GT was originally a F40 prototype on display at the 1987 Frankfurt show, which was then converted into a GT-spec race car in 1991, competing in the Italian GT championship. The car was then restored by DK Engineering in 2013. In this spec, the F40 GT makes 598PS and weighs only 1,050kg, giving it a mighty power-to- weight ratio.
We don't want to spoil the video for any of you, but the end of the video is certainly questionable.
