The Ferrari F40 is a mid-engined supercar that appears in the Asphalt series.
The Ferrari F40 is the successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO, which was the first road vehicle to break the 186 mph (300 km/h) limit. In turn, the Ferrari F40 was the first road vehicle to break the 200 mph (322 km/h) limit, holding a road vehicle speed record for 5 years until 1992, when the McLaren F1 was released in 1992 with a speed of 240 mph (386 km/h). It was also the last vehicle to be personally approved by founder Enzo Ferrari before his death.
The Ferrari F40 uses a 2.9 L twin-turbocharged Tipo F120A V8, producing 478 PS (352 kW; 471 bhp) at 7,000 rpm. It is the last vehicle of Ferrari's limited production supercar series to use a V8 engine. Later models (Ferrari F50 [1995-2001], Ferrari Enzo [2002-2004], and Ferrari LaFerrari [2013-Present]) use naturally aspirated V12 engines.

As early as 1984, the Maranello factory had begun development of an evolution model of the 288 GTO intended to compete against the Porsche 959 in FIA Group B. However, when the FIA brought an end to the Group B category for the 1986 season, Enzo Ferrari was left with five 288 GTO Evoluzione development cars, and no series to enter them into competition. Enzo's desire to leave a legacy in his final sports car allowed the Evoluzione program to be further developed to produce a car exclusively for road use. The Ferrari F40 is often known as the 'Le Mans Ferrari' due to its popularity with privateer teams in the Le Mans Endurance Series, which it primarily competed in instead of Group B.
The Ferrari F40 was added in the Ferrari Season Update as a high-end Class C car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,054 ( 35)
- rank: 2,242
- rank: 2,512 ( 15)
- rank: 2,751 ( 21)
- rank: 3,037 ( 28)
- rank: 3,531 ( 35)
At stock, the F40 performs similar to the Vencer Sarthe, featuring a high top speed and mediocre other stats. At MAX, it is comparable to the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, with slightly better nitro efficiency.
The F40 was obtainable through its Car Hunt event available between October 23 - 29, 2020, and March 12 - 18, 2021.
During the Winter Update, the Ferrari F40, along with several other vehicles, were found to have data files within the game. It was released in the Decals Update as a mid-Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1369
- MAX rank: 1503
- MAX+PRO rank: 1593
- Tuning Kit bonus: +32
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/12/16
Despite having similar starting stats to the Ferrari F50, both cars' performances differ significantly. The Ferrari F40 has strong acceleration despite its rather weak launch, aided further by a powerful Nitro; that is compensated by a very low pure top speed when tuned. The F40's handling is among the best in the game - it is very responsive, albeit not as much as the likes of the Mercedes-Benz Biome's, but unlike the aforementioned car, it never suffers from the skid glitch, making the Ferrari F40 a very easy car to use, suited for tracks with short straights in particular.
The Ferrari F40 performs as a 'middle of the road' between the Mercedes-Benz Biome and the Audi R8 LMS Ultra, both in Events and in Multiplayer. The F40 has weaker acceleration than both, but it's nitro efficiency is also average, not requiring an Extra Tank, unlike the R8 LMS. Its handling is better than the LMS Ultra's and worse than the Biome's, though the F40's near-immunity to the skid glitch counteracts such a disadvantage. The Biome is also the only car between the three that is not hampered greatly by a lack of nitro.
As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the Ferrari F40 costs 650,000 to purchase (previously 200,000). As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,020,000 while Pro Kits require 341,600, 16 of each Class B Part, 12 Initial & Early Techs each, 24 Mid-Techs and 24 V8 Engines.
Prior to the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Ferrari F40 had always been made available for purchase after its pre-release cups were held during the March 2015 Decals Update. It was changed into a time-limited car, available only for purchase between February 26, 2017 to March 4, 2017.
The Ferrari F40 is a Tier 5 car, and requires 375 stars to unlock. It costs $987,000.
