1989 Ferrari 640 F1
The revolutionary 640 was extremely fast and a well conceived car, sowing the seeds for a Ferrari rebirth. Barnard left Ferrari for Benetton in the end of 1989, leaving this model as the most accomplished Ferrari he gave his name to.
This breath taking Ferrari 640 F1 is chassis 110, a car that was driven during the 1989 season by Gerhard Berger at the following Grand Prix :
- Mexico - USA - Canada - Great Britain - Germany
Despite excellent qualifyings Berger was plagued that year with mechanical issues and did not finish those races.
Chassis 110 subsequently spent some time as a static car until it was brought to Ferrari F1 Clienti in 2011 to be totally rebuilt and made race ready again. The state of the art restoration work resulted in a Classiche certification. Since then it has been driven very sparingly and only covered 150km. Its future owner can take to the track with confidence in the race preparation that has been carried out.
It is hard to describe the emotion one feels from standing near this beautiful machine, representing the golden era of the « Coke bottle » design, the return to the lost paradise of the V12 atmospheric engines and a design destined to play a part in the the Prost-Senna contest. A unique opportunity to make an acquisition that would be a major addition to any collection.
