Track-Ready Cars Modified for Street Use in Addition to Regular Road Vehicles

It is not uncommon for car manufacturers specializing in performance vehicles to design track-specific cars in addition to their standard road cars. These track-focused beasts, not bound by regulations, are usually extreme in terms of engine power, aerodynamics, and weight reduction. They also serve as a platform for testing technologies that could potentially be integrated into production road cars.

As their name suggests, driving these track-only cars on public roads is against the law. Nevertheless, some owners have come up with a clever solution to this issue. They transform their track machines into milder versions that are legal for street driving, allowing them to enjoy their vehicles without breaking any laws.

This Ferrari F40 LM supercar did not undergo a direct conversion from a track-exclusive model to a street-legal version. Originally, it was a road-going F40 model. However, reportedly, the owner was dissatisfied with the car’s handling and performance. Instead of giving up on the vehicle, they chose to undertake an extensive and thorough rebuilding process to transform it into a F40 LM adapted for street use.

The project began in 2004 and was completed after seven years and an investment exceeding $300,000. Today, the car features LM-style bodywork and an enhanced engine, among other enhancements. The owner’s satisfaction with the modification remains unclear since the vehicle was listed for sale shortly after the conversion with minimal mileage accumulated post-conversion.
