    The white press kit is, strangely, un-numbered. They are available in Italian, French, English and German and I would love to know how many of each there were.

    I believe Ferrari only printed 600 of the white cover press kit (and 1,700 of the blue cover) I do have 2 of the white and 3 of the blue I'm ready sell. Please send PM if interested. I also have some other surplus F40 related literature.

    The same auction has an F40 tool kit for sale, that is described as "Concours quality tool kit, presented in virtually unused original condition"

    with a "GUIDE PRICE: £10,000 - £12,000"

    Unfortunately there are a few problems:
    * it is missing the large black wheel nut.
    * it is missing the spark plugs in the blue bag.
    * it is missing the spare auxiliary belts with leather strap.
    * it has no blue bag for the wheel pins.
    * the wheel pins are also incorrect and different sizes.
    * the bulb & fuse tub is incorrect with the wrong contents.
    * it has the wrong ratchet (it would appear NOT to be the correct round head USAG ratchet with the red dot, looks more like a Kraftwerk Ratchet or an incorrect. USAG from a Mondial/348 tool kit).
    * the photos are not detailed enough with low resolution to confirm if the Michelin Vigil pressure gauge is the correct model.
    * the photos are not detailed enough to see if the ratchet accessories (UJ, Extension, plug socket) are the correct USAG brand.
    * the spanners only show the side with "CHROM VANIDIUM KRAVM" it would be nice to confirm they have "Ferrari" on the reverse side.
    * The whole set also appears rather grubby to be described as "Concours" and looks like it needs a good clean. The tow hook had been used and there is rust on the tips of the screwdrivers and the ball joints on the extension and UJ.

    Apart from that, its better than a lot I have seen :eek:
    Silverstone Auctions | 1987-92 Ferrari F40 Complete Tool Kit


    If anyone is looking for an actual "Concours" F40 tool kit, that is totally perfect, factory original, complete with nothing missing and is clean, please drop me a message.

    cheers Mark

    below is the auction offering, NOT a "Concours" kit......
