Strangely enough I managed to completely miss Hammonds test drive of the fabulous little Alfa 4C. Well, I can just say thank you Richard, You were not blinded by figures as mostly every other so called motoring journalist. And that includes those +Top Gear guys too

This car should be driven and judged by other qualities… In same way you'd judge an SZ and 8C. Or a good old GTV6. They were all made just to make us smile…

So what would You do with Your F40?

I understand and respect all those guys who restore old legendary cars to "originals" in pristine condition… They do a lovely job of keeping those precious bits of car history with us.
How else could I give my kids a joy of cruising around in a wonderful Giulia GT for example…? Make them experience this kind of passion
And that is an experience all young people should have to keep them away from drugs and similar crap ;)

On the other hand I really like to see the other kind of enthusiast who will take a car they love and make it more personal. There is really no right and wrong here.

This F40 is pretty awesome, there is nothing tasteless about it. Just more raw performance and better handling. What's not to love?
He is doing the right thing with it… The car is made for driving.
I personally couldn't care less about all those "pure" F40 examples dying slowly in a secluded garage just to be shown off every now and then. That's more of a business-minded ownership and I think it sucks. That's not how You should treat an F40.

I'd do the same as this guy, don't bother with economics and future prices, feel the joy of driving it every day! The F40 deserves that.

The Liberty Walk Ferrari F40: Is it OK to modify a legend?
For some the Ferrari F40 is a deity on wheels — its perfect lines, stunning engine, and blistering performance can’t be bettered. For others it’s a blank canvas to be tinkered with. Read this post by Alex Goy on XCAR.

Alfa 4C Première at Geneve Motor Show

And I think I need one of those white ones, launch edition of course… Sport pack and racing rubber. A must for a modern man. Hopefully a children car seat is part of the Sport pack, or I just might be in a heap of trouble. I'm a pretty responsible father after all ;)

Anyway… Anyone wants to buy my absolutely fantastic Alfa GT for…umm… well, the bidding can start at say €62 000?
It's easily worth so much more than that. Seriously… If you consider only its historical value, it's probably the bargain of the century, I kid you not.

Let me know, I'm not in a hurry… I just have to be one of first 1000 to get one. Only few hundred of those left now. Hmm… Buy it during the coming weekend and I might just throw in a perfectly healthy kidney.
