    Dear fellow F40 enthusiasts and owners,

    I would be grateful for any suggestions on reliable experts to assess/inspect/validate potential on market F40s in Germany and the UK.

    I have not identified a car but do want to be prepared if something enticing comes along.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Jimmie,

    Thanks a lot... 0-60 response time indicates you bleed Ferrari red! As the guys you suggested tend to sell their own inventory however, would they really take an interest in assessing a car from another dealer for me?

    Yes, they should.

    That said, if you are looking for an experienced, impartial & unbiased opinion, I can think of at least 2 independent specialists in Europe who have been familiar with the cars for years, and who and will travel to inspect, test-drive and issue you with a written reports.

    Also, many of the authorized Ferrari SpA concessionaires will accept an F40 which they have no affiliation with, for purposes of a comprehensive inspection and issuance of a report.

    Thoroughly inspected each F40 tells a different story.

    Feel free to reach out directly for further infirmation.

    Germany and UK are too far from me (and I don't know the market), but if there is to check (or to find) an F40 in Italy, I'm here. I will use a Maranello based famous shop as support for the inspection.

    No fewer than four (4) F40's available for sale at this weekend's Auto e Moto D'Epoca Classic Car Show in Padova, Italy.

    Hi Marcel,

    This sounds like a missed opportunity, although I imagine all of these F40's are those advertised on the open market.
    If not, definitely a missed opp! Any you thought were truly special?
