A Californian house seller is giving away his rare Ferrari F40 free of charge with his Malibu home.

The F40 was one of only 1315 units to be made in Maranello and has less than 800 miles on the odometer.

The seller is offering the car with the $4,399,333 (£2.9 million) home until 30 June to encourage buyers.

The F40 was the first road-legal production car to be capable of reaching 200mph and held the title of the world’s fastest production car between 1987 and 1989, when it was eclipsed by the Lamborghini Diablo.

Any personal experience re. build quality and sound proofing? And let's face it, as far as ugliness is concerned, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I did once get a ride in an F40. It rattled like a tumble dryer full of spanners, the switchgear was cheap and nasty, the panel fit was rubbish, and there literally was no sound-proofing - and, it would accelerate reasonably well, then, BANG, in came the turbos, which almost snapped your neck in two. Terrible turbo lag, far too heavily turbocharged, unpleasant noise... horrible, horrible car. Also badly-proportioned with nasty detailing.

Re: Free Ferrari F40 with house

If I bought the house, I'd sell the F40 straight away. Horrid car. So ugly, badly-built, no sound proofing whatsoever, nasty turbo V8 blare. Now, if he cared to throw in a free 456, I wouldn't say no, but then, if he's this desperate to sell the house, I'd look carefully at things and consider reselling the house immediately and just taking the free Ferrari...
