Officially, all Ferrari F40s left the factory painted red. There were a handful, however, that were believed to be painted yellow and black, and another handful sent back to the factory by the Sultan of Brunei to be repainted. What we’re saying is, it’s especially difficult to find an F40 for sale that isn’t red. As luck would have it, the most famous non-red F40 of all is for sale right now in the United Kingdom.
Though this F40 did leave the factory painted red, it was brought to Japan when acquired by famous tuners Liberty Walk in 2004 who, in 2010, converted it to LM spec and painted it white. Four years later, the car was purchased by a dealer and then acquired by the current seller, who converted back to factory specification, save for the paint. It went from white to a blue based on Porsche’s Aqua Blue Metallic, and is now paired with correct 17-inch Speedline wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires.
