In an internet auction record, a RARE blue Ferrari F40 was sold for more than £1 million.
The historic car set a new European record when it was auctioned for £1,000,500 by UK online auction site The Market. Between 1987 and 1992, just 1,311 Ferrari F40s were produced, all of which were painted in Rosso Ferrari red.
A classic Ferrari red and black interior complements the unique blue exterior.
The supercar even has a classic license plate: “F40 BLU.”
The price at introduction was £163,000, but because to high demand for the limited production, F40s were soon selling for considerably more.
Speculators began to “flip” the classic supercars, just like they do now with the more premium models from the big marques.

It was painted white and adapted to LeMans specifications in 2010.

Sam Moores, a podcaster, Youtuber, and photographer, was the former owner and put up an Instagram account for the automobile, which has over 4,000 followers.
He purchased the F40 with the idea of dismantling it and rebuilding it to factory specs.
