I don't know. It has huge turbo lag, it has zero comfort, it uses lots of fuel. To be honest there are much much better refined F40s around these days. Like this for example: https://fastestlaps.com/models/bmw-118i-f40

This car is just a masterpiece...
Every boy once dreamed of having one.
Moreover it can be made competitive nowadays.
The LM and Competizione prove that.

FUN FACT: No F40s ever actually hit 201 miles per hour. It’s been thought now that that was just a marketing ploy from Ferrari, making the first 200 mph car. The fastest ever reached in testing was about 197-199. So, basically it was almost tied with the Porsche 959 with a slower 0-60 and lower acceleration in general.

Why would you want to compare a GT500 or a Hellcat to this spectacular twin-turbo track beast? Not even those beat icons like an F40 on the track.

I don't believe it could hit 133 mph in the quarter-mile. The slow 0-62 of 4.6 and fast 0-124 time of 11 flat were from a long-geared version of this car. It could hit 75 in first gear and 125 in second. I know a lot about the AMS test between the Ferrari F40 and the Porsche 959. But with the normal gear ratio, it would never go from 100-200 km/h in the same time as a McLaren F1 (which does it in 6.3-6.4, just like that F40, but maybe less than 6 if it hit 60 mph instead of 62 in first).

It's only weaknesses are brakes and launch which could be easily improved.

0-170mph does seem consistent with 0-300km/hr claim.
