NEWS – Ferrari F40 voted 'Most Iconic Supercar'

The Ferrari F40, poster car of the 80's, has topped a poll to find out the best 10 supercars of all time, carried out by the organisers of The Fast Car Festival - a major new show set to take place at Donington Park, Derbyshire, on July 30-31, 2016.

The F40, built to commemorate the brand’s 40th anniversary in 1988, was the last model to be signed off by company founder Enzo Ferrari himself before his death. It was, at the time, the fastest car in the world, and was said to be the closest thing possible to an F1 car for the road. It was unadulterated performance; man and machine. And it says a lot that it still looks stunning 28 years later.

The F40 was crowned the top supercar in the survey, carried out through June 2016, taking 18 per cent of the total vote. The closest runners-up were the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren F1.

The top 10 supercars of all time were:

1. Ferrari F40

2. Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

3. Ferrari La Ferrari

4. McLaren F1

5. Koenniggsegg

6. Porsche 911

7. Pagani Zonda

8. Ferrari Enzo

9. Audi R8

10. Jaguar XJ220

These icons will be among some of the amazing and outrageous performance models in The Fast Car Festival’s Supercar Paddock, consisting of members’ rides from the online community phenomenon Supercar Driver. It will showcase feature cars that together are worth millions of pounds, including metal from the magnificent marques Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Lotus and McLaren, as well as other extreme performance models from Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar.
