History

Originally delivered new to Kroymans BV, the official Ferrari importer of the Netherlands following completion at the factory in November of 1989. The car remained in the Netherlands and three years after departing the factory, it was rebuilt for racing by Peter van Erop of Cavallino Tuning. No work was done to the engine at this time, but van Erop modified the suspension, brakes, and bodywork including a repaint in Giallo Modena. Upon completion, it was sold to Dutch Racing Promotions of Blaricum. Over the course of the 1993 and 1994 seasons, it was raced by Mr. te Pas alongside Dunclan Huisman and David Hart. In 1995, it was further modified to remain competitive in racing. The work was carried out by G-Tex of the UK and was overseen by Will Gollup. At this time the car underwent major engine work, increasing output to well over 700 bhp. Documentation accompanying the car indicates that this work was done in collaboration with racing shop Michelotto. The car was later further modified by David Hart for participation in the Ferrari/Porsche Challenge, driven by Hart and Mike Hezemans and raced again in the same series in 1998, again with H. W. te Pas, David Hart, and Bert Ploeg. In 1997, the car was sold to Ferrari collector and racing driver Michel Oprey. The car replaced his Ferrari 348 GT and was campaigned very successfully in the Ferrari-Porsche Challenge in the 1990s. Oprey commissioned further mechanical work on the car which was done throughout the winter of 1997-1998. With Oprey, the car was raced until 2006. That same year, the car was sold to a UK-based racing team, who continued racing the car until 2009. With a previous owner, the car was serviced by Elias Elia of Autofficina in Eposom, Surrey in the UK in 2019. Upon its acquisition by the current owner, the F40 was shipped to the Zanasi Group of Maranello, Italy. Car was completely disassembled with the body fully stripped to its bare materials and repainted in triple-layer Grigio Nardo with Blu Elettrico Cloth bucket seats and painted Scuderia Ferrari shields. At the same time, the car was also mechanically serviced.
