Fer­rari F40

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - Richard He­sel­tine

Even now, the F40 looks like a gussied-up com­pe­ti­tion tool. It’s a sense that also per­vades the cabin with its proper racing buck­ets, in-line driv­ing po­si­tion, and ca­ble door pulls. Nat­u­rally, 476bhp and 425lb ft of torque at 4000rpm can make life in­ter­est­ing in the wet, and it will break trac­tion in fifth, but its steer­ing is the best of any car, ever. It’s ut­terly be­guil­ing.
