Today’s great story comes from our brother Diecast lovers, Hunting which is very valuable for hunting which makes beautiful and unforgettable memories in Tokyo. Far to the Japanese capital to pursue rare collections from Tomica Limited Vintage Neo. Not only rare in the world of diecast but rare also for the automotive world.
The super rare collection of Tomica is the Ferrari F40 in yellow. This 1/64 diecast from Tomica for the Ferrari F40 is only sold on the Tomica Shop network, while for red ones can be purchased outside the Tomica Shop.
Following is the story of your hunting experience, our MDI diecast lover while in Japan for Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Ferrari F40. “Our hunting to Tokyo was in pursuit of the release date of the Ferrari F40 TLV on 30 March and we managed to find it at the Tomica Shop in the Tokyo Station area. When the store arrived, the queue snapped. For the yellow edition it was special because it was sold on the Tomica Shop network. while the red ones can be purchased outside the Tomica Shop network, for the red one the MDI gets it at the Akibahara mall store.
There is a difference between the yellow and red versions. The red edition is a standard form of the Ferrari F40, while the yellow one is a special version of the Japanese market only, arguably this is the JDM Ferrari. This special yellow driver and passenger window has a sporty accent because the openings model is left and for the taillights there are also differences, namely the turn signal on the outside and the brake lights on the inside.
The rest is the same as the red edition. And overall the Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Ferrari F40 is one of the best Tomica casts ever made for Ferrari. “
We already know how the rare diecast Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Ferrari F40, there’s no harm in also knowing how rare the Ferrari F40 is in the automotive world.
A standard 650-hp sports car was originally started from the 288 GTO Evoluzione prototype. The designer, Leonardo Fioravanti, then told the 30th anniversary of the super car since its appearance in 1987.
At that time, Enzo first said he wanted Leonardo to produce a real Ferrari. We know, as he knows, that this will be his last car. We immediately intervened. “Research in wind tunnels has shifted to aerodynamic optimization to achieve the appropriate coefficients for the strongest Ferrari road cars that have ever existed,” he said.
And that’s true because finally Enzo closed his eyes at the age of 90 in 1988. Learning from the success of turbocharger use in Formula One, the 288 GTO was a Ferrari with the first turbocharger for the road launched in 1984. The F40 also has the same recipe: longitudinal, engine in the center, with a 477hp powerful turbo-charged V8 engine.
The Body F40 itself is very light, only 1,100kg! This is because Ferrari uses Kevlar for the Pininfarina body design that is paired with a chassis of steel, and uses Lexan material to show the engine. This body & chassis was made by Scaglietti and assembled at the Ferrari factory.
As a result, the F40 was born which had a low front with very small overhangs, NACA air vents, and a rear spoiler, which was installed by Leonardo’s colleague, Aldo Brovarone, at the right angle to make the car very famous for its large wing style.
With light weight & combined with potential engines, the F40 has a spectacular performance in its day. The F40 acceleration for 0-100km / h only takes 3.8 seconds (and for the LM version only 3.2 seconds), making the F40 have shorter acceleration than the Porsche 959, its main competitor at the time.
If I have to point out one of the many reasons for success of the F40, then I will say that the process works successfully transmits technical things, namely speed, lightness, and performance.
