    Dear Mods,

    Would you please consider making this thread a "sticky" in the hope that we can gather together and embrace the few of us around the world (30 to 40) that drive these unique Valeo enhanced Ferrari Mondials + the singular Agnelli F40 ? Since there is really such a limited number of us, we could proudly show our pictures, tell our stories and, well, you get it :)

    burp - it's New Years Eve:) Here's wishing you all a Peaceful, Healthy and Happy NEW YEAR - - :)

    Cheers, Hank

    This must have been the first Ferrari to ever be equipped with the Valeo clutch system. Look at the date -1989. The Valeo Electronic clutch offered as an option in the Mondial t, didn't even show up untill late 92. Gianni's F40 was quite the "test mule" !!

    Thanks for the link. Interesting write -up. I wonder in what years the Lancia Valeo rally cars won thier championships. Those systems must have taken a real beating. That was serious testing.

    Yes mods. make this a stickie.

    I hope to be in the list someday.

    BTW, EUR 400.000 - EUR 480.000
    AUCTION RESULTS: Lot was Sold at a price of EUR 418.000....feel that's a good price on a more historic car....sure purists would insist on clutch but, I would feel this car would be great on a track.

    Anyone own a Euro COUP Valeo....I know FNA only received cabriolets ...

    Hello All

    This Valeo system has always interested me. Could anyone direct me to a site that has the nuts and bolts information on it ? Are repair parts available ?

    Regards

    Happy Thanksgiving, 09 to all,

    I'm bumping this up due to interest (albeit, limited:) - found this very good article and would like to share it with the rest of our Valeo fans.

    Strange that it has the same mileage reported as when Wade saw it on eBay a year ago. And that was when it was in New Jersey.

    Hank,

    I recently bought a 93 Mondial T valeo, pictures are in another thread.
    S/N 95924 shipped up from Texas.
    Do you know how many valeo owners are on this site?
