    I was under the impression that the factory only painted F40s red, and any other non-red F40s you see have been repainted by an owner.

    No, I'm pretty sure all F40's left the factory painted Rosso Corsa (red).

    I think there were 3 or 4 of them that were painted yellow by the factory for the Sultan and i think one of the prototypes were yellow also. I'm not sure though, could be wrong.

    I think you are right, but I think they were originally red and then Ferrari repainted them yellow.

    I read somewhere that Ferrari in fact didn't want to sell him a different coloured F40, so he bought a couple and had them repainted.

    I may be mistaken, but I believe the Ecurie or Spa Francorchamps F40 left the factory in Fly Yellow. It was "the only one" to leave in that color.
