Chassis: 88522
Like many of the F40 LMs, chassis 88522 was sold immediately to a private collector; in this case cartoonist Albert Uderzo of Asterix fame. He used the car several times in private track sessions before he sold it in 1993. One of the later owners had Jacky Ickx drive it on the Nürburgring Grand Prix track in 1998. The multiple Le Mans winner clocked a time considerably faster than the contemporary Formula 1 racers also present. It is seen here at the Bonhams' Gstaad Ferrari Auction in 2005, making its second appearance at the exclusive sale after it was offered in 1998. A Far East collector jumped on the rare opportunity to obtain one of the F40 LMs and coughed up CHF 844,665 or $654,615 USD to take ownership of s/n 88522.
