Ferrari F40 (1989) a rare blue livery for auction

This unique blue-colored Ferrari F40 is currently up for auction, and although it’s not red, collectors are raving about it!

The Ferrari have always been available in many colors and yet, the red is the most popular color because it is the traditional color of the horse racing models prancing, but today is also a rational choice to ensure its resale.

The British owner of this 1989 Ferrari F40 , YouTuber Sam Moores, did not want to follow this trend, and put this blue copy of the F40 up for auction through the house of Bonhams. Its registration, “F40 BLU”, testifies to the uniqueness of the car.

Ferrari F40 (1989): only 26,155 km on the odometer

If the history of the model is to be believed, the 1,311 copies of Ferrari F40s which left the factory at the time, between 1987 and 1992, were all painted in “Rosso Corsa” red. The other colors that you may encounter are therefore the work of their respective owners. This particular F40 has a long history: in 2004 it was exported to Japan, then painted white and modified by Liberty Walk in 2010.

It was then bought back in 2014 by Joe Macari Performance Cars in London and then restored to its original condition. But before being sold to its current owner, it was completely repainted in blue by the Italians from Carrozzeria Zanasi, in Maranello. The chosen color is not part of the Ferrari catalog: it is Aqua Blue Metallic, which was borrowed from the Porsche color chart. The interior combines black with the bright red of the leather of the seats.

The model is in excellent condition and only displays 26,155 km on the odometer . Its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine produces 478 horsepower , and has been recently serviced. If it was marketed at the time around 200,000 euros, today, its scarcity and the speculation that followed have raised its rating beyond one million euros. At the time of writing, the auction for this blue F40 has already reached 765,000 pounds, the equivalent of around 885,800 euros .
