Just below the F40's seats is a twin-turbo V8 that generates 357kW at 7000 rpm. It has a startling 576Nm of torque at 4000 rpm and is a two-seater that only weighs a few hundred pounds more than a Golf GTI. Even by today's standards, the automobile is incredibly quick; the F40 was a spaceship back then.
 There are those who disagree with the strategy Ferrari used to develop the F40. The F40 is a basic vehicle in comparison to that technological marvel, the four-wheel-drive computer- controlled Porsche 959. It is essentially a pretty lightweight, two-seat, mid-engined vehicle with a lot of power, with little unique about its design or construction outside the use of composite materials.
The F40 is constructed by wrapping an exceptionally robust and stiff tubular steel platform chassis and cabin section—a sort of cage that encloses the occupants and provides the mounts for the suspension and the engine—using materials and methods used from Ferrari's Formula One cars. Modern adhesives are used to attach the panels to the frame, which are made of lightweight but incredibly durable Kevlar.
The wide-based, unequal-length upper and lower wishbones used in the F40's suspension are a tried-and-true design that is rarely improved upon. The suspension parts are crafted like works of art and have anti-roll bars at both ends. The coil spring and damper units are located between the upper and lower wishbones in the front and back, respectively, and rise upward from the top of the alloy uprights in the rear, the car handles like its on rails.
