Ferrari is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its F40 model with a spectacular world record display at the upcoming Silverstone Classic event.
Launched in 1987 as the successor to the popular Ferrari 288 GTO, the F40 has gone on to become one of the most popular sports cars in history, with its astonishing performance one of its main selling points.
Upon its release, the F40 was – and still is – one of the fastest cars in the world, capable of accelerating from zero to 62 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
Furthermore, it was the first road-legal car to break the 200 mph top speed barrier.
As a result, Ferrari is keen to showcase the iconic sports car and will be putting on the world's largest ever display of just F40s – attracting vehicles and spectators from across the globe.
"Silverstone is the perfect place for Ferrari to be celebrating this important milestone in the incredible F40's history," said Nick Wigley, event organiser. "It was, of course, at Silverstone in 1951 that Ferrari achieved its first grand prix win."
