Ferrari F40s at the 2010 Concorso Italiano - Click above for high-res image gallery

Concorso Italiano threw a party for the legendary Ferrari F40, and the turnout was, well, almost as good as the car itself. Thousands of show attendees were treated to more than a dozen examples of Enzo Ferrari's final project.

As you probably know, the F40 was named to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary, and the celebration at Concorso honored the 20th anniversary of the car's 1990 arrival here in the States. (Let's not quibble over the fact that Ferrari the company was actually born in 1947, meaning the F40 should have actually arrived in 1987. The show car was first unveiled in 1987 and that's good enough for us.)

The late arrival of what some still view as the ultimate supercar did nothing to dampen the spirits of the men and boys who fell in love with it at first sight and still carry a torch for it today. The F40 celebration was one great reason to go to Concorso Italiano this year. If you didn't have the opportunity to attend in person, hit the gallery below to see how the lineup of F40s looked at one of Monterey week's biggest exhibitions.

      Well I think the old one is great but come on ... look at the curves on the F50 ... its so smooth and sexy. The looks of the F40 look like its from the 80's. Maybe its just a old school look people are after with it.

      This was the first and only car that I had a poster of when I was 12. Nice car!

      Why are your photo galleries not working properly!?!

        They are filled with too much awesome to handle.

      Sweet mercy, my favorite car of all time!! That car is the pinnacle of driving machines.

      I wonder if there are any replicas hiding in there :o
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think if you like Ferrari's enough to get a replica (simply because you can't afford a real one), then you should have enough respect for the whole scene to stay away...

        But that's just me o_O

        I wonder if there was a replica and everyone found out, if the other owners would welcome him anyway, or chase him out of there and burn the rep.

        I just love the guy who re-badged his civic as a ford focus "concept" to get into a car show lol!

      Very nice but the F50 looks much better and modern !

        You're entitled to your own opinion, but I think most people will agree with me when I say that the F40 is one of the best looking car's ever. The design is pure and embodies everything that the car is.

        That being said I just about choked from all of the awesome when I saw that picture on the front page this morning of all of the F40's lined up. I wish I was there to see it in person.

      Agreed; gorgeous car and one of the top ten supercars, ever.

      I like the lines and look of the F50 more, too. Some of us just like the F50 more.

      Remember, the F50 is a stroked version of the then Ferrari F1 V12 engine. It sounded insane. Clarkson said in a drive, though, that he'd prefer a F355 over the F50. He said the F50 would kill him.

      Sigh...some day...maybe I can get a ride in one.

        I've probably mentioned this before on autoblog, but I was lucky enough to have a ride in a F40 last year at a charity supercar day over here on the other side of the pond. Insane in the flesh and even more mental when it gets moving. By far my favourite car of all time!

      Wonder if the guy who had his F40 (expensively) detailed and shown in Autoweek a couple days ago won a ribbon or whatever they do at these things...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I much rather the euro spec front and rear bumpers.
