Watch a Ferrari F40 with Tire Chains Attack Snowy Mountain Roads
An F40 owner we can get behind.
Have you ever seen a Ferrari F40? If you have, chances are you saw it stationary as part of a well-protected private collection, sitting in a museum basement, or carefully shuttled to a car show once or twice a year. The F40, like many other classic Ferraris, has seen its market value skyrocket to the point of frustration, turning what was once an on-track weapon into a mothballed investment. Apparently, one F40 owner didn't get the memo, and partnered with Red Bull to produce a gorgeous video of his F40 crashing up a snowy mountain.
According to Speedhunters, the owner of the F40, one Takeshi Kimura, was spied camping in a snowy area with his F40. Red Bull, in its typical adrenaline-fueled fashion, took note of his wild antics and partnered up with Kimura for a new video of his F40 in action.
The video begins with the F40 stalking through the city streets, emerging out into winding mountain roads. Kimura arrives at a ski resort, and "rents" a set of tire chains, resulting in a rather surreal scenario of an F40 with snow chains.
Kimura uses this newfound traction to blast up the side of a mountain, leaving tall roostertails of snow and ice behind him. He makes it to the top and gives us a gorgeous shot overlooking the lit town nestled in the valley of the mountain.
