Eric Clapton's Ferrari F40

Eric Clapton collects and customizes Ferraris almost like guitars, and now you can own one of his F40s. GVE London is an exotic car specialist that is selling a 1991 Ferrari F40 that passed through Clapton's collection.

The F40 featured a turbocharged 478-horsepower 2.9-liter V8. Ferrari built 1,311 examples of the car between 1987 and 1992. List price is a trifling $1.15 million, which might be a bargain for a sure-to-appreciate classic supercar.
The car debuted with a factory suggested retail price of approximately US$400,000 in 1987. The F40 was designed with aerodynamics in mind. For speed the car relied more on its shape than its power.
