It took 20 years, but I finally saw my first F40!! It was driving eastbound on Bloor at Spadina last weekend. I texted my buddy and he told me another one of his friends texted him 4 hours earlier on the same day with the report of it being parked infront of some hotel, which he didn't believe until I told him that I saw it too. Sorry, no pics to back it up... Very sexy car for being two decades old, and a great exhaust sound. Didn't get a good look at the driver... to busy drooling over the car.

I have yet to see an F40 in Toronto but I do recall seeing my first live F40 on the road about 15 years ago in Montreal. It was such an awesome sight and sound, particularly with it still being relatively new.

The guy that Stephanie from this site drives with had one on his driveway in my parents' neighbourhood a couple years ago. I don't know if he still has it.

I saw one 5 years ago at a place called the cockpit in Mississauga getting detailed. The owner is a Ferrari collector from Oakville who owns 15+ Ferrari's and gets invited to the factory for special events and invitations to purchase invite only limited editions. Apparently he is a one of the guys who own a large stake in Lafarge.

Saw one at Spadina and Queen a few weeks ago, driven by middle aged man, I nearly rear ended the car in front of me, f40 really is a thing of beauty.

Never seen it, nor heard of it. Where does the owner live?

Seen the same LP and G this past weekend in front of Hemmingway's. And the LP driver kept revving it while sitting there in queue on Yorkville.
