Legendary Ferrari F40 burns down: a fortune goes up in smoke here

The Ferrari F40 is one of the most legendary supercars ever built. Now one of the rare specimens in Japan has burned down completely.

Hakone (Japan) – It is a question of faith whether one locks oldtimers and super sports cars away in well-tempered garages – or whether one takes such a valuable treasure out on the street. After all, cars are there to be driven, one can argue. That is without question correct – unfortunately the exit can also end as sadly as that of a Ferrari F40 in Japan. The legendary super sports car – the last vehicle that was created under the leadership of company founder Enzo Ferrari (90, † 1988) – went up in flames, as reported by 24auto.de. Judging by the pictures and videos circulating on the net, there should definitely be nothing left to save on the bolide. The only positive news: At least the two occupants of the Ferrari seem to have survived the accident unscathed.

According to Japanese media reports, a 62-year-old man was behind the wheel of the red Ferrari F40 and a woman was in the passenger seat. When the two were on the famous Hakone Turnpike road in Kanagawa Prefecture, the driver suddenly noticed smoke at the rear of the super sports car. So the 62-year-old stopped to check on the problem. When he got out, the vehicle started to burn. However, the man and his companion were able to get to safety and make an emergency call. So far, nothing is known about the exact cause of the fire. * 24auto.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
