I remember very well when this car was released in the second half of the eighties. I was a kid back then and the F40, designed by historical firm Pininfarina, exerted and incredible charm to us boys. It was like the absolute top you could ask for a car, from the point of view of a kid: super speed, super slick lines, hidden headlamps, fiery Ferrari red, and much more. Ferrari was the synonym for "ultra fast cars", and F40 was the synonym of Ferrari (or were they metonyms? or synecdoches?).
