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. They are too pricey, and even more outside of the budget of an AFOL who spends all that extra cash on LEGO. Lego however has come to my rescue. announcing the release of the Ferrari F40 Lego Super Car.

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.
