About the F40 Competizione MonteShell
Named to celebrate Ferrari�s 40th anniversary, the F40 burst onto the scene at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show and quickly took the racing world by storm. 1992�s inauguration of the Italian GT Championship offered the perfect stage for the F40 to showcase its amazing potential, facing rival super sports cars from Porsche and Lotus. Piloted by Marco Brand, the MonteShell-sponsored Jolly Club F40 garnered attention for its dominating victory in 1992. 1993 saw Brand win the opening round, eventually winning 8 out of 10 races to sweep the championship. The fact that each of Brand�s victories was also a Pole to Finish shows just how overpowering the F40 Competizione was.
