Once I sold the 288GTO, I found this gem. One of the last F40’s. A Euro spec 1992 that was a personal car owned by famous Swiss F1 driver Loris Kessel.
This car was used at a special track day Sept 26&27, 1999 at Lodrino Air Force base. Was anybody there? F1 driver Jacky Ickx took passengers for hot laps. Also driving that wicked Sunday were F1 drivers Rene Arnoux and Arturo Merzario. Imagine seeing 4 x F1 drivers having some fun. 👍🏎

I was afraid of my 288GTO. I admired the lines, the power and elegance of the car. It was intimidating and I was worried about someone hitting me. It only had 5000 km and all original. I sold it to a substantial collector in Dubai. #mistake#shouldhavekeptit#tooyoung . I wanted a supercar to drive and enjoy and began the hunt for my first F40. #nogaragequeen
This is a great shot of the Ferrari factory test driver Dario Benuzzi at the Fiorano track having fun back in early 1984 #ferrari#288gto
