    Is there any way to tell which year an F40 is by looking at a picture of one...? Does anyone have any idea what year this F40 might be...?

    First: what has he/she done to the seats???

    Second: I´m not an expert, but as far as I know F40s were first coming to the US in 1990 if I´m not mistaken. Very early F40s are identified by the sliding windows.

    My understanding was that only about the first 50 were produced with Plexi windows, all of them euro cars.

    The car in the picture is a US car, 90 year or newer. The front spoiler is the easiest and fastest from a distance to tell it is a US car, then you go to lights, then seat belts.

    I know of no outward apperance difference from '90 to '92 on a US car.

    Damn..... I looked at this car with Jordan. Didn't you get the VIN? I think it was either a '91 or an early '92. Sorry man, I did look at it......
    Now I'm thinking "91.

    LOL, that's interesting and actually very keen of you to notice; i don't think i would've ever picked that out... More curious is the fact that the plates on the car are NOT from Texas...

    I believe it is this car a '92 F40. I have the VIN at work. It is out of Texas but kept in California, or was when I was looking to buy it for inventory earlier this year.
