      Yes, but the company that does it is very expensive, and right now, they're busy making body panels for new Saabs.

      I would think Ferrari themselves would make/get you whatever you needed.

      Found this related to F-40 repair:

      I have an F40 in our shop for work. One issue on the car is the forward under tray has a small piece of material missing. It is a carbon kevlar weave that I haven't seen before. Sorry I can't post attachments but I do have pics available. I am looking for a small piece of cloth to repair the panel. As you are aware the customer wants it perfect.....
      http://www.compositescentral.net/showthread.php?t=6026

      One of the guys responded with this:

      If I remember correctly, that is a harness weave. Back in the day, Ferrari was using some "non-standard" weaves.


      Sounds really, really expensive to find and repair the composite materials.

      All this talk about vids. I don't have a GoPro or even know how to host a video. Someone else would have to film it from a follow car and post it up. Either way, I'm not putting anything on the car right anyway.

      Have you tried to drive it to a suburban parking lot with speed bumps? I'd create a traffic jam trying to drive it. haha.

      Also, can it run on 91 octane?

      Hey OP, you mentioned what a blast it is to drive the F40 on Rocky Mountain roads. Have you ever driven CO-113 from Carbondale to Hotchkiss? That road absolutely blew me away - great views, perfect pavement, banked curves, little traffic, and almost no cross-roads.

      Ha, I bet. I was unfortunately in a rental 2012 4Runner and I kept telling my wife how awesome the road was, and how much more awesome it would be in a proper sports car. Then a red F430 Spyder passed us in the other direction, and I told her that guy is DIR.

      No speedbumps with it and yes, 91 octane is fine although I do use ethanol free gas.

      See my questions above about body repair/replacement. Very interested in how you deal with the unique Kevlar-Carbon body peices in terms of maintenance and accident or damage repair. You mentioned before about the paint quality being iffy, so I'm wondering if the body itself is partly to blame. Maybe they didn't prep the surface correctly? Or maybe, in an effort to keep weight down, used the bare minimum amount of paint/primer.

      An F40 with a bagle is a win for sure.

      I saw that in his list of cars a few days ago and was but assmuded it was just a joke. Good to see it isn't. One of my all time favorites!
