Ferrari F40 Valeo, The World’s Only Automatic F40
When we think of legendary Ferrari models, the Ferrari F40 instantly comes to mind. The now legendary Ferrari F40 is considered to be the “greatest Ferrari ever produced” by Ferrari enthusiasts and the worldwide petrolhead community alike, and that doesn’t surprise me at all. The Ferrari F40 was built to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ferrari and it was the very last Ferrari that was approved and partly developed by the man himself, Enzo Ferrari before his death in 1988
However rare and desirable these 1,311 Ferrari F40’s are today, there is one F40 in particular that is even more rare and it stands out from the rest, want to know more?
This is the Ferrari F40 "Valeo". , it looks like any other Ferrari F40 doesn't it? it is a one of a kind F40 and has some unique features that make this particular specimen stand out from the rest. What are these unique features? the Ferrari F40 “Valeo” features a full black interior instead of the standard bright red interior
The Ferrari F40 “Valeo” is one of those Ferrari’s that not even the most die hard members of the “Tifosi” knew about, why? Because it featured an automatic transmission, yes you read that correctly. The Ferrari F40 “Valeo” was manufactured especially for Gianni Agnelli, who at the time was the long serving chairman of the Fiat group.
Because Mr Agnelli was such a car collector, naturally he wanted a Ferrari F40 to add to his large car collection. However, there was one big problem. Mr Agnelli suffered a serious leg injury in a car crash in his younger years, as a result this lingering leg injury made it nearly impossible for Mr Agnelli to drive any vehicle with a conventional manual transmission, however this didn’t change his desire to shift gear himself so as a result it was left to the Ferrari engineers to come up with a solution, and that they did.

Each model is created using a variety of production processes, to achieve this precision. They are produced using a composite material referred to in the industry as “resin”. Photo etched parts, die-cutting, tampo printing and waterslide decals are often used for the most authentic replication.
