This Ferrari F40 once owned by Alain Prost is for sale

A 1989 Ferrari F40 once owned by four-time Formula 1 World Champion, Alain Prost, will cross the blocks carrying no reserve at RM’s Sotheby’s Sealed auction on 10th-12th May.

Sadly, chassis number 83249 – a non-cat, non-adjustable-suspension car – was never used by Prost, who sold it shortly after Scuderia Ferrari gifted it to him in 1990. However, the legendary driver’s signature is still visible on the roof under a thick layer of clear coat.

In 1997, now owned by Graham de Zille, the F40 would feature in Motor Sport magazine alongside a Ferrari 288 GTO and F50 – all three de Zille’s cars – in an article written by motoring journalist Andrew Frankel. Frankel would surmise: “In the art of deftly controlled savagery, the F40 knows no peers”.

Having passed through a string of illustrious owners, the car was granted Ferrari Classiche certification in 2016 and took second place in the concours at Fiorano that same year, as part of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary celebrations.

Now located in France, with 2,900 miles showing, the F40 has been fastidiously maintained, with a major service carried out in 2019, when new fuel bladders were also fitted. The car has its original front spoiler, Schedoni luggage, fresh tyres, owner’s manual, replacement service book, tool kit and has an odometer converted to miles.

It’s estimated to sell for £2,150,000 – £2,550,000.
