This may look like a FakeRari, but it really isn’t. It was actually based on the former IMSA GT racer and it even had more power than the original F40. Here’s the story of it.
Back in the 1980s, Ferrari F40 was “the car” to have. Yes, there were some other cars like the Countach and Porsche 959, but the F40 was the one most of us fell in love with. It was Enzo’s final project, and it’s one of the greatest cars ever made. The 2.9-litre twin-turbo V8 was producing 471hp, which was enough to propel it to the magic mark of 201mph (323 km/h).
But, the program needed to continue with more models, and Ferrari decided to hire a long time Ferrari racecar maker Michelotto to prepare the F40 LM. The death of notorious Group B class could’ve killed LM’s future, but Ferrari stood its ground and prepared the car to race in the North American IMSA GT racing series.
The F40’s chassis was strengthen with a lot of carbon fiber and had completely new springs. The V8 engine had the same 2.9-litre displacement, but the turbochargers were boosted a bit more. Now, with an increased output, the F40 LM was able to accelerate 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 229 mph (368 km/h), making it a lot faster than its standard version. But, the F40 LM was given a power limiter, which only allowed it to produce 720hp. It’s still a lot, though.
The F40 then evolved in other variations so that it could remain competitive in other racing series. The new cars were F40 GT, F40 GTE, and the F40 Competizione. Ferrari didn’t do much to adapt the original F40 LM to other racing series; just some safety changes and power restrictions. But, one of the original IMSA racers went off the radar for a few years.
The factory prototype F40 LM (serial number 79890), was sold in 1989 to Jean Sage for Ferrari of France. That same year, the famous F1 driver Jean Alesi raced this prototype in an IMSA GT race at Laguna Seca, where he finished 3rd. He also qualified 7th in the seconds race at the Del Mar Raceway, but retired after mechanical failures in the 10th lap. In 1990, Jean Pierre Jabouille raced it at the Road America, coming in 2nd. This chassis proved to be successful in its racing career and was later bought by a Belgian-born billionaire and racer Jean Blaton, who raced under the alias Jean Beurlys.
Jean had quite a racing history, finishing many 24 Hours of Le Mans races in the 1950s and 1960s, mostly driving Ferraris. So, when he bought the F40 LM, he wanted to make it different. He wasn’t really happy with having a car that any other collector could also purchase, so he called Tony Gillet to propose a certain upgrade. Jean’s first idea was to cut the roof off of this Ferrari. Many Ferrari enthusiasts will agree that changing the looks of a Ferrari is blasphemous. Ferrari even ordered Jean to remove the F40 logo as well as the Scuderia shield. Apparently, the Prancing Horse wasn't really happy with this project, and they didn't want to acknowledge it as one of their own. Well, most Ferrari fanatics (including me) do recognize it as a Ferrari.
They started the project by reengineering the double-wishbone suspension with a push-rod coilover and gave it a 4-wheel independent setup. Then, the car was taken to Gillet’s workshop where the car received some drastic changes under the supervision of the original builder Michelotto. They had many ideas on how to remove the roof, and once the final decision was made, they sliced it off and applied clay to the original car in order to settle on the design idea before any molds were taken.
Apart from the roof removal, they also changed the exhaust system, now exiting just before the rear wheels (like on the Dodge Viper), and the rear end was given a bit of makeover. When they removed the roof, the car lost a lot of its firmness, so they needed to install a very strong tubular steel cage around the driver’s cell as well as roll-over hoops...in case something serious happens. The windshield was made out of a single piece polycarbonate sheet (or lexan) to give the driver some protection. The interior remained original, and this yellow one-off Ferrari came to life.
What’s interesting is that, when building the car, Michelotto took the opportunity to remove the power limiter, so the engine could breathe out its full output of 760hp (40hp more than the standard LM). The new car never received an official name, but in the Ferrari community it is known as the F40 LM Barchetta or F40 Beurlys. Whatever you decide to call this 229 mph monster, it won’t change the fact that it’s one hell of a car.

Wall Squats: If your knee is not 100%, the best thing to do is a strengthening it with wall squats according to WebMD. Begin by standing with your back against the wall, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Start slowly bending your knees, if you feel any pain, stand upright and take a break. If you’re feeling no pain, continue bending your knees and keep your back and pelvis against the wall. Hold this position for about 10 seconds. The goal is to not bend your knees too deep. Repeat this exercise a few times and try to hold your position a few seconds longer each time.

Think of The Avengers, the comic series from American publisher Marvel about a motley crew of superheroes who come together to protect the world from the forces of evil. Now, imagine if back in the 1960s, creators Jack Kirby and Stan Lee had found inspiration for The Avengers in Yoruba mythology. Instead of Iron Man, we’d have the warrior Oxaguiã. Taking the place of the blue-eyed, blonde-haired Norse god Thor would be the equally strong and black-skinned Xangô, the ruler of justice — who also happens to carry a hammer. Ant-Man, with his command of insects, gives way to Ossain, who in turn is the king of the forest, the sorcerer and knower of secrets of the plants. And who is Captain America compared with Ogum and his sword, always thirsty for battle?
That’s just what 30-year-old Brazilian artist Hugo Canuto had in mind when in August 2016 he reimagined the classic #4 Avengers cover, replacing all the famous characters with Orishas (spelled Orixás in Portuguese), the deities of modern-day Afro-Brazilian religions which trace their origins back to Nigeria and Benin. Hugo is a lifelong fan of Marvel and all-things comic and also a native of Salvador, home to one of the country’s largest Afro-Brazilian populations.
