The F40 was delivered by Concours Transport at 6:00PM (I can HIGHLY recommend them - these guys are pros and real car enthusiasts). Drove the car till 8 (when it was too dark to see well). Let me preface this post by saying that I am not a Ferrari newbie. This is the 6th Ferrari I've owned since 1996, and I've only sold one of my previous models. I've driven most of my cars on the track, and I consider myself a rather good driver. However, this car is SO unlike any car I've ever driven, and I am still very very uncomfortable driving it. It's gonna take a lot more seat time before I settle into it. The following are the top 10 things I know so far about my F40. 1. An F40 is fast. No - I mean REALLY fast. 2. The brakes suck SOOOOO hard. They will be the first things to replace. 3. Rear view mirror? Useless. Between the black cross bar and the Plexiglas slats, it's like looking at a Monet in your mirror. Very disconcerting for someone like me who constantly likes to check his six for Smokey. I guess "whatsa behind me issa not important!" 4. I thought I knew what it was like to drive a Ferrari around town and get noticed. This is a whole new planet, however. Grown men hanging out their truck windows screaming "F*&# YEEEEEEEAH!" People pull U-turns to follow you. I live in a very quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street, and the mere act of unloading the car from the truck caused a crowd of 10+ to stop, park their cars, and watch. Honks, waves, lights flashing - it's like I'm a rock star. I'm not sure if I like it, but I suspect I will get used to it. Complete strangers approach me to talk about it at the gas station (which also happened with my other cars, but it leads me into the next one nicely). 5. Speaking of gas stations, is the tank REALLY that small? 10 gallons filled it up, and it was close to empty when I started. 6. Unlike my other Ferraris, this one IS a chick magnet. Weird. 7. It likes to be driven smoothly, not overly aggressively. This is probably due to me not knowing how to shift properly with the boost, as I keep over boosting the darn thing. I'll figure it out soon... 8. Did I mention it's fast? I swung out to pass some guy on a back road single yellow line, and I was past him before I could think. I started to feel very "behind the car" which is not a good feeling. I went to brakes, and... did I mention the brakes suck? 9. It makes WICKED cool noises. Whoosh, shsssss, bang, vroom - all unlike any Ferrari I've experienced. However, it's still too quiet. Even though the stock cats were replaced with Tubi cats, they gotta go.... 10. This is way more car than I am currently able to handle - which is a humbling surprise for me because I consider myself rather adept at driving performance cars. I will be very cautious as I learn how to drive this beast over the next few months. I'm thinking a road trip from Seattle to Laguna Seca would help out a lot. Maybe drive it to Indy? Who's with me?!!!!!
