Ferrari F40 LM


What welcome news, Just last night, I was talking with one of the young men in the neighborhood about sports cars, and lamented that I would never own one.

Every gear head knows the F40, The last Ferrari produced under the direction of Enzo Farrari, it celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Ferrari. Manufactured from 1987 to 1992, demand soared, and 1,315 were built instead of the planned 450. Of these, 2 were produced in Black, and less than 10 in yellow, a few in white, and the rest in that classic red hue replicated here.

There is a brick ton of LEGO new coming out of the New York Toy Fair today. The Buildable Star Wards figures are just the latest.
