1990 Ferrari F40
This 1990 example was sold new to Gustavo Gimenez of Caracas, Venezuela and an ex works invoice from the factory is on file. The car remained under the name of Gustavo until 2002 where he registered the car to his company in Madrid, Spain. Most of the maintenance for the car was undertaken by the official Ferrari dealers in both Nyon and Gevena in Switzerland where the owner spent most of his time. Eventually in 2006 the car was sold via Kidston SA to Marc Citron in Gevena.
In 2010 Edward Lovett bought the car on behalf of Dick Lovett Ferrari in Swindon. Dick Lovett undertook a Major service, changed the Cam Belts, Replaced all 4 tyres and applied for Ferrari Classiche Certification.
The car was then sold quickly to a new customer to Dick Lovett who had been searching for the right F40 for some time and this 2 owner example was perfect for him. That owner retained the car for just a year before selling it to fund a bigger classic Ferrari purchased and it again was sold by Dick Lovett to its 4th owner. The car was kept and properly maintained with invoices on file for 2 years. The owner had a custom car cover made and also decided, like many, to have the US spec aluminium fuel tanks fitted. Finally the car arrived with the 5th owner about 4 years ago where again the car has been impeccably maintained by Official Ferrari dealers since.
We are very proud to be able to offer this wonderful example of one of Ferrari's most iconic models that has an exceptionally well documented history from new.
