"The Rod Stewart Car" - 1990 F40 - Auctions America (July 31-Aug 2, 2014)

This 1990 Ferrari F40 is chassis number 86746 and was the 60th of the 213 U.S. specification F40s produced. 86746 is reported to have been formally owned by legendary rock star, and car enthusiast, Rod Stewart and was known among many in California as the “Rod Stewart Car” because of his ownership. From 1990 to 2008, this F40 was a California car and it has been well cared for by each of its owners from the time it was new. 

Having less than 7,900 original miles, this F40 is an excellent condition. Certified Ferrari Master Technician John Heim, at San Francisco Motorsports, just recently completed its compressive major service and recommended belt service. The pattern of the carbon fiber weave is still visible though the paint job because this F40 still retains its original thin paint. The correct Speedline and Ferrari etchings are still on the wheels, the clear plastic engine cover presents very well, and the red fabric covering the carbon fiber bucket seats looks virtually new. Included in the sale is the factory F40 luggage set, all books and manuals, factory tool roll, tire inflator and car cover. This F40 is mechanically flawless and ready for countless more years of use and enjoyment.
