Feature Flick: 60 Ferrari F40s Break World Record

It's been 25 years since the debut of the Ferrari F40, and a celebration at the Silverstone Classic marked more than the supercar's birthday – 60 F40s took a lap of the circuit and made it into the world record books as the biggest parade of the Ferrari F40 ever.

Eight minutes and fifty seconds is how long the video is, and how long you will get to watch and listen to the glory that is five dozen Ferrari supercars parading around a track. The F40 had been created for the prancing horse's fortieth anniversary in 1987 (hence the name) and was powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine good for 471 hp. The F40 was also the first production car to hit 200 mph well before the likes of the McLaren F1 and other supercars that followed the F40's debut.

Almost all of the 60 F40s that participated in the record-breaking parade wore U.K. plates; only about 1300 total copies of Enzo Ferrari's final car were built from 1987 to 1992. (The brand's founder passed away in 1988.)

Check out the video below for footage of the 60-car parade. We've had it on repeat all day, listening to the sonorous V-8s singing.
