Ferrari F40 Going To Bonhams Scottsdale Auction

"The take-up into the next gear is flawless and, with the turbos cranking hard, the blast of acceleration just goes on again and you seem to be in a blur of time conquering distance, gearshifts and noise.

The Weasel And The Jaguar

It was November 1962, at London’s Heathrow airport. To the casual observer, the stern-eyed men loitering in the lounge were typical businessmen. They wore dark suits and bowler hats, were suitably mustachioed, and all carried tightly furled umbrellas and briefcases.

If you are close to it, it is highly recommended to protect your ears. The vehicle from 1974 is the highest development stage of the early …
