Mansell Ferrari F40 for sale

A Ferrari F40 previously owned by Nigel Mansell is to be sold by Bonhams at its Zoute sale on 10 October.

It is estimated at £480,000 to £640,000. The 1989 F40 was delivered new to Mansell before he joined the Ferrari F1 team and comes in Rosso Corsa red. Inside, the car has ‘custom works’ beige leather upholstery, but otherwise the Ferrari is described as being in original condition and perfect working order.

Philip Kantor, Bonhams European Head of Motoring, said: ‘The 1989 Ferrari F40 offered at Bonhams sale was delivered new to Nigel Mansell in 1989. A fierce and exciting racing driver, many remember him for his win or lose performance - risk-taking and breathtaking to the end of the finish line.

‘As the last Ferrari conceived and built before Enzo Ferrari’s death, the design and its ownership lineage make the F40 a highly desirable motor car for any fan of Ferrari and Formula One racing.’
