    I received this picture today, and had never seen it before. Apparently, back in '92, you could bring your F40 to this agency in Japan to have it upgraded. Does anyone knows more about it? I hope not ;-).

    It's interesting though to know this was ever conceived by a human (?!) mind.

    Also, I'd be willing to find a suitable car for those amazing wheels, 80's-90's design at its best. Some Subarus and Toyotas come to mind...

    From memory it was a mod for the swiss market where hi level rear spoilers were not legal, they had to do similar with the Ford Escort Cosworth at the time.

    Never seen any later pics so I assume it was a one off and probably back to a normal rear clam these days.

    Thank you for those details Christian! There is also another 408 that is painted red. I don't know if Ferrari kept these two 408 4RM cars or they are tucked away in collections perhaps?

    Maranello and its surroundings have always projected rumors. I had extended that a warehouse was dedicated to retain all these prototypes, its unnamed heroes.

    The warehouse is in X, close to Maranello, and it houses at least 500 Ferraris (including many brand new ones). It is a high-rack warehouse managed by XY.
