@FastestLaps please remove the 19.9 1km time nonsense, while it's true that the F40 prototypes had roughly the same specs as the GTO Evoluzione (as pointed out by Thiago_Lins), those are far different from the regular customer-spec F40s which have slightly bigger wings and aren't straight piped

No '90s supercar besides the EB110 SS could even do low 20s, and even an F1 XP5 PROTOTYPE (which shouldn't even BE mentioned in the same breath as a customer production car) ran a barely better time at 19.6.

A customer F40 won't do any better than 20.9 to the first kilometer as pointed out by European mag tests. If an XJ220 can only manage 20.7, and an Enzo can only manage 20.1, and the EB110 SS can only do 19.8, then THE F40 ABSOLUTELY ISN'T DOING 19.9. It should be ONLY BARELY quicker than the F50.

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.

Sheed 2y ago

.... But the Camaro ZL1 1LE does. ????????????????

First of all, the ZL1 of either version only barely beats the F40. Stop talking out of your ass. The ZLE has advanced racing tires and has 30+ years in technology over the F40.

Keep your Camaro and i'll keep the F40 ????????

"In fact, the only source of excitement is light weight. There is no other magic to it. They make the steel space frame carry all the forces in the turns, and you can feel it. The chassis is bending on the track and it's wobbling. The interior starts rattling and screeching with speed, but other cars at this speed are stable and solid. It's such a big go-kart with a body. From the frame point of view, it's not even 60's technology. And in the end all the marketing is based on a Kevlar body glued together a quarter inch of rubber and glue. "

Corrected Displacement & Curb Weight/Downforce Estimates:
110 kPa (15.95 psi) = 179.18 ci, 7750 rpm, 84.48% VE Boost, 521.87 bhp -> equal to as 373.5ci atmospheric displacement with zero boost

Official curb weight = 1235 kg
HPWizard curb weight = 1683 kg
1683-1235 = 448 kg of DOWNFORCE (even a bit higher than Ferrari F50; however, Ferrari didn't list a downforce weight figure for the F40)

Some also-European examples that came with catalytic converters are just a tick slower to 60mph (100km/h) and four ticks slower to 100mph (160km/h); but it's six ticks slower to 125mph (200km/h) and 1.1 seconds slower to 150mph (240km/h).

US-spec models are slightly worse: 0-60mph in 3.7s (100km/h in 3.9s), 0-100mph in 8.6s (200km/h in 13.1s), and 0-150mph in 19.9s (250km/h in 22.1s).

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  2y 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.
