This prototype with excellent conditions is the first successor to the F40 ever built.To test the various elements that made it up, first of all the 4.7-liter V12 block with 520 HP and 470 Nm, this supercar accumulated its kilometers on the Fiorano circuit starting from 1994, entrusted to renowned drivers such as Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger or Jean Alesi, as well as the test driver of the Dario Benuzzi brand. The results obtained confirmed that the model was capable of first-order performance with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and a maximum top speed of 325 km/h.After various exhibitions at fairs and events including "Forza Ferrari in Suzuka", further tests by numerous journalists and countless photo sessions, the prototype was completely rebuilt in Maranello and given to Jacques Swaters, and remained in its collection until 2007. Afterwards, it went through the hands of four other owners.There are only 349 examples of this model, and on January 15 the new owner of this gem will be decided at the Worldwide Auctioneers event in Scottsdale, Arizona./worldwideauctioneers.com
