Ferrari F50

Ferrari F50 Teardown
Mr. Luigi Scala once again frightens us again with his unabashed knowledge of the prancing horse stable, by ripping apart a seemingly perfect Ferrari F50. Though all was not perfect as there was an apparent oil leak and a need for a new clutch which looks to be quite the job from the above photos. Thankfully, they took the time to document the journey that most would not want to endure themselves.

So much detail in every aspect of that car.

The hand crafted exhausts, the swooping bodylines, everything about this car is amazing.

I would love to just watch them do this.

Whats up with the three hydraulic reservoirs? Clutch and front brake, rear brake?

Amazing car none the less.

That makes two of us.
Yeah man! Seriously, the car itself is already expensive but full restoration from the ground-up??? Damn! I just can't imagine how much it will cost after all.

I believe one of those reservoirs is for power steering.

But power steering reservoirs are always (i have never seen otherwise) mounted to the pump. Power steering also uses much bigger lines.

Ferrari F40 crash in Vancouver is saddening to see
BY BRETT DAVIS IN CAR NEWS, CRASHES AND FIRES, FERRARI, VIDEOS ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 AT 5:59 AM



It’s always painful to see an exquisite supercar being mangled. Here we see a Ferrari F40 crash which has resulted in the back end being torn apart. Just 1315 were ever made. It brings tears to the eyes.

The Ferrari F40 crash occurred recently in Vancouver, Canada, where the driver lost control in the wet conditions. By the looks of it the F40 spun around at least once, clipping the front end before hitting the rear end in a pretty bad way.

As you can see in the video below, there is some damage done to the mechanical aspects of the Ferrari resulting in oil and liquids leaking onto the road.

As far as we know the driver escaped without injury.

As for the twin-turbo V8 F40, it might be repaired to live another day. The difficult thing about repairing an F40 is the panels are all made from carbon fibre. This means any panel that’s damaged will likely need replacing.

So sad :(

Here goes. Two of the greatest Ferraris thrashed as intended. This was one of the best days of my life.

For our season opener we restore a track driven Ferrari F40 using the Kevin Brown Method of Polishing. Learn Kevin's methods for perfect finishes and how his techniques differ from traditional detailing procedures.
