Tuners from DK Engineering, mainly repairing and servicing Ferrari models, restored to the original appearance of the F40, owned by the Sultan of Brunei.

Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah ordered F40 models in the 80s of the last century – these machines differed from simple versions in that they had a right-hand drive, a unique color palette that was not offered to other customers (F40 was sold only in red), more powerful power units and original interior. The Italian corporation refused to produce models oriented to the left-hand drive, for this reason Pininfarina specialists took up the development of sports cars.

The release of the Ferrari F40 was carried out from 1987 to 1992. A total of 1315 cars were produced. The machine was equipped with a 2.9-liter V8 turbo engine with a capacity of 479 hp. Up to 100 km / h, the sports car accelerated in 4.7 seconds and accelerated to 321 km / h as much as possible.

 The factory color of the sample Ferrari F40, which was engaged in the studio, was matte gray with a red trim. The model has acquired a beige leather interior and more comfortable seats from Testarossa. After the monarch, the car ended up in Britain, where it belonged to different owners, lost an exclusive interior and was repainted in a traditional red hue.

The tuners painted Ferrari F40 back in its original color, conducted a technical inspection and equipped the sports car with red seats from the racing variation F40 LM.

How much the studio spent on restoration is unknown. Given the value of a sports car, the current owner in any case did not fail, because last year the car was purchased for recovery over £ 2 million before restoration.
