The head of the Mercedes car in Formula 1 gives up the last red born under the management of Enzo Ferrari. Its value is in the millions and it has traveled only 5,500 km

They are brought together by Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes in Formula 1, who is a big fan of Ferrari. Except that he cannot go around representing a rival brand, the one he has he keeps in the garage: in addition to being the team manager, in fact, he is also a shareholder. And since the historical Reds prices have reached record prices for several years, he must have decided to invest in this hidden heritage that needs constant care and precautions. As many have done in F1, current and former drivers.

The Austrian president put the F40 up for sale from his collection of supercars, entrusting it to British dealer Tom Hartley Jr., who in the past have already dealt with the sale of LaFerrari Aperta, signed by Wolf under the front hood. This was also a few kilometres, apparently by the Maranello test drivers and not by him.

Wolff’s F40, the first of 27 examples produced for the Spanish market, has only covered 5,500 km and has been fully restored by Ferrari’s classic department. We knew Toto was a perfectionist – comments Hartley Jr. -, but if you take a look at this car, you’ll understand better what he means.

Cavallino’s first supercar, produced from 1987 to 1992 (this car is from 1990), was practically the F1 road: powered by a 478-hp 2.9-litre V8 turbo to hit 326 km/h and go from 0 to 100 in 4 seconds. The engine, gearbox and other mechanical components are designed by Marco Materazzi who worked closely with Pininfarina and with designers Leonardo Fioravanti and Aldo Brovarone.

Wolf Lewis Hamilton shares his passion for supercars: Seven times world champion He owns several Ferraris and in the past has never had a problem seeing him, often in Los Angeles. As far as Formula 1 is concerned, the two have always remained loyal to Mercedes with whom they won the world championship from 2014 to 2021. In 2022, the German team (based in England) won only one race (with George Russell, in Brazil) finishing third in the championship Behind Ferrari and Red Bull.
