      A whole stack of F40 LM parts? Internet Meme, no way! You are WAY too nice to me!



      LM rear wheels with new Pirelli P Zero Rossa? What?



      The fronts too?



      And huge LM Brembo brakes for all four corners? Internet Meme, you shouldn't have!





      And to finish it off a full inconel LM exhaust? Wow, Internet Meme, you're the best!!!



      And to think, all this time I didn't know what everyone was talking about with all this Internet Meme talk I keep spammed with. I guess you really are real. Wow.

      So are these one-off parts or is there an upgrade that just fits really well from a newer model.

      Also, not knowing much about F40's, are brake upgrades a necessity?

      Damn, I forgot the whole "Curse the gods" thing. I'll put it in next time.

      They're not parts from a newer car but actual LM parts. The F40 LM was commissioned by Ferrari for their privateer race teams to campaign the F40. Subsequently, the upgrades were all available in packages via Ferrari or Michelotto, their tuner and race prep company, to upgrade other F40's. Obviously, you wouldn't want to add all the stuff unless it was going to be a track only car but some things are really nice upgrades. They're hard to find so it was nice to track these down.

      The brakes are huge. It doesn't come across in pics. The reason for the wheels, which are made by O.Z. but have Enkei stickers on them , is to clear the brakes. They came with new red Pagid pads which will probably go because they are probably ridiculously loud. Just the stock brake pads are really noisy around town but obviously they quiet down on the back roads and canyons.

      Those Enkeis are cool, but the stock pentagrams are really, really cool.

      Hello, and welcome to...

      Yes. When one fake F40 owner is pwned by the collective TCL detective hivemind, it appears a real, live F40 owner hath emerged from our midst.

      simple the wheels were made by oz and comisened by Enkei as at that time only a few companies actually have the ability to make magnesium wheels

      Those wheels are a nice get. Now can you get the sweet enclosed headlights from the LM setup too? BTW the pic of an F40 in a cluttered garage with a washing machine and refrigerator in the background is farking classic.

      A few months back there was a user named "InternetMeme" who claimed to be an uber-rich bond trader or something like that, who was in the market for an F40. Things happened. Details were research...InternetMeme was found to be fake.

      Sherpa23F comes along and posts a bagel on an F40 at TCL's request. ATL_Av8r holds out hope that this one is legit. So far it's looking good.
