The Ferrari F80, as it’s known, is the first new F40 supercar to hit the market since the F40 GT, the F20 and F12.
The F40 is the only car in the market to make the leap to the next level of performance from the original F40 and is arguably the best F40 ever made.
The Ferrari has the most modern aerodynamics of any F40.
The carbon fibre chassis and bodywork are more than a match for the likes of the McLaren MP4-12C and Aston Martin Vantage.
The front and rear wings are made from titanium and the carbon fiber bodywork is the same as the F60.
The car’s performance was already well established when it entered the showroom in 2011.
It won the GT-Am championship with a best lap time of 1:32.032, and finished 10th in the GT Daytona class, with a top speed of 186mph.
The car also won the 2012 Nurburgring 24 Hours and finished runner-up in the FIA GT Championship with a time of 0:48.927.
The new F80 is powered by a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which produces 258kW.
It was originally fitted to the F50 but was removed in favour of a 1,632kW twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
It’s the second turbocharged V8 to be fitted to a Ferrari supercar, after the F80 was introduced with a 1:28.832 time at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.
The engine is rated at an output of 1,000kW and the car’s power output is said to be up to 310Nm, which is more than three times as much as the V8-powered F40’s output.
The supercar also has a five-speed manual gearbox and a rear axle with four discs.
The rear suspension is said be stiffer than the F70 and the front axle is said not to be stiff enough to allow it to perform well on the circuit.
The F80 features a number of upgrades from the F30, which won the Daytona class in 2007, to the V10-powered V10.
The suspension is more aggressive and the F90’s tyres are said to have a larger diameter, which makes them softer.
The biggest upgrade from the previous generation is said a new rear wing, which has been fitted to all F80s.
The new wing will be much more stable than the previous wing, and will give the car better grip on the track.
The team behind the F10 and F20 also promised improved grip and improved performance in the 2018 season, which was marred by a series of problems and reliability issues.
