      I remember seeing an F40 brand new at a Volvo/Ferrari dealership in St. Louis, Missouri when they first came out. I forget exactly what they said, but the price was either not for sale or $1,000,000. It might have been a combination of the two because the dealer was in love with the car, but that much money would certainly take the pain away. The 959 never excited me in the least bit.

      The F40, *for me* , is just so much more beautiful than the Porsche.

      Person: So how will you make a fast supercar, Porsche?
      Porsche: Well you see first, we are going to give it advance suspension that is able change height, next we're going to give it a powerful turbocharged inline six engine, and all-wheel-drive.
      Person: How about you, Ferrari?
      Ferrari: Less Weight + Horsepower = Speed

      Why do so many people call the F40 a 200 MPH? It has never, ever reached that mark and it has been outclassed by the 959 in every single aspect - build quality, acceleration, handling, comfort and equipment of the interiors.

      The F40 is a total piece of crap that is so "valuable" just thanks to the death of Enzo Ferrari.

      I guess my question is do they just have auto collectors who volunteer their cars to be on TV? Or do they belong to the hosts or the producers? Just wondering.

      The 959 unlike the F40, is actually a daily driver. The F40 isn't meant to be driven every day... and that's a big advantage for the Porsche.

      Ah yes... the days when RH hadn't grown a hideous beard yet and could still make valid points about cars ... because he hadn't yet been branded as the "ignorant, childish yokel" that he now plays (badly) on Amazon.
