The Pininfarina-designed Ferrari F40 GTE debuted at the 1987 Frankfurt Auto Show as a celebration of Ferrari's 40th year since its inception. Leonardo Fioravanti, the general manager of Pininfarina, declared the F40 would 'recover the spirit of some of the Ferrari cars of the past' and 'give our customers the possibility of driving objects that are very similar to the racing cars. It is a modified Ferrari F40.

The engine was a 2936cc V-8 engine with four valves per cylinder and twin IHI turbos. The engine was a modified version of the 228 GTO V-8. It was capable of generating 700+HP .

The suspension used was double-wishbone in the front and rear with a switchable height control because of the vehicles low ground clearance. The body was a tubular steel frame while the body being carbon-fibre, kevlar, aluminum, and honeycomb. Due to the desire to have a light vehicle, all windows were plastic except the windshield. The cockpit contained no door panels, carpet, or radio. There was no power-steering and to operate the door from the inside, a pull-cord was used. Lots of air scoops, wings, and vents adorned the vehicle. This was used to achieve maximum down force. The vents also aided in keeping the engine and brakes cool and the turbo's fed.

Due to the inconvenience of small, sliding windows, the cars were offered with air conditioning. Nearly every F40 sold had this option installed.

During its production run, The cost estiamte given during the prototype stages was set at $280,000. When the vehicle made it to the market, the price had increased to $400,000.
