The Mercedes F1 boss’s Ferrari F40 is up for sale
Toto Wolff, team principal and part owner of Mercedes-Benz AMG Formula 1, once again ejects members of his supercar collection.
The latest is a Ferrari F40 currently owned by Tom Hartley Jnr. is offered for sale, the same UK dealership that sold Wolff’s 2021 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, Ferrari Enzo and Mercedes-Benz AMG SL 65 Black Series.
Wolff, himself an enthusiastic racing driver, said at the time that he was selling the cars because he simply didn’t have the time to drive them. Given the record number of 24 laps on the 2023 F1 calendar, lack of time is also likely the reason behind the sale of the F40.
Wolff’s F40 was recently completely overhauled by experienced restorer Autofficina Bonini Carlo and has just 5,536 kilometers on the clock. The car has chassis number ZFFGJ34B000087007 and is one of 27 F40s originally delivered to Spain.
It is offered for sale with full documentation, including a title from the Ferrari Classiche classic car department, confirming the original chassis, bodywork, engine and gearbox.
During its heyday, the F40 was the fastest, most powerful and most expensive model ever sold by Ferrari. Power comes from a 2.9-liter V8 twin-turbo engine and is officially rated at 471 hp. The engine is a derivative of the 288 GTO Evoluzione’s mill and, thanks to some unique upgrades, enabled the F40 to become the first production Ferrari to exceed 199 mph.
