The F40LM seen here, is far more exclusive than even a normal F40: it is one of the genuine, ultra rare Le Mans (LM) versions originally built for Ferrari’s most favoured clients. Developed for competition by Michelotto of Padova on behalf of the factory, the LM sported a reinforced chassis, even more aggressive bodywork including a deeper front air dam and larger, cockpit adjustable rear wing, a racing interior, stiffer suspension, up-rated brakes, competition gearbox, wider wheels and a specially prepared engine producing between 850-900bhp. Not to be confused with the standard road-going F40, or cars up-rated subsequently on behalf of their owners, just 17 factory F40 LMs were originally built and they are today highly coveted.
