0-120 mph is 11 seconds but 0-200kph is 10.4 seconds? Where was the second time tested, roll-out and downhill?

@Fastestlaps
Please delete 3150 lbs curb weight from R&T 10/1991.
It was test weight with driver and equipment according to their test sheet:

How can I see the source for 1428 kg curb weight?


User avatar

196ss  8m ago

Where this 1428kg curb weight came from?
In all test I've seen the weight was no more than 1320 kg even with full tank.
1428 is weight with driver and passenger or may be measuring equipment. F40 can't be as heavy as Enzo or F50.

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).
