Specially modified Ferrari F40 hits snowy slopes


A specially modified Ferrari F40 supercar has been adapted to take to the ski slopes at the Ryuoo Ski Resort near Nagano, Japan.

The F40 featured in a video for Red Bull Motorsport and showed driver Takeshi Kimura driving both on the ski slopes and on the off-piste tracks in between the forests.

With headlamps worked into the bodywork, a roof rack for the camping equipment and tyre chains for the rear wheels, the F40 suited the slippery terrain.

Ferrari's F40 debuted in 1987 and was temporarily the fastest car in the world during the late 80s. Usually compared with the Porsche 959, these two cars were the first to breach the 200mph mark for a road legal car and have an iconic status in both their company's history.

The F40 was famous for being very lightweight and stripped back, with a 478hp V8 powering it to 201mph, with a 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds.
