Hi kris. Thanks :) I got the wheels and rims from eBay for £10!!! Very cheap for chromed parts. There is a german company on bricklink that sells similar pieces. I think it's called chromed bricks. Good luck.
Thanks. I built this and my bugatti before I joined moc pages, so they were the first mocs I posted. I have learned so much since then from great builders like Firas, Ryan Link, R.H. and Mattyy 666 who all build in this theme. Thanks again. Joe
How could I have missed this one? The F40 is one of my favourite cars of all time! Although not quite accurate, (the proportions are a bit off here and there) your version is instantly recognizable. This is one of those cars that looks easier than it is to render in bricks, and you did a good job with it!
I like it

Oh my oh my freakin goodness! I didn't know you made this! This is freakin awsome!
The shape is spot-on and there are so many cool details. I never did have any lego technics models when i was a kid because there were no figures to interact with. But i always envied the advantage of technics models to be able to build with such detail.
can you make the 458 italia? plz.... and put it on ldd so i can buy it (when it will be finished just comment on one of my creations to tell me) and btw excelent car... id like to put new ones but my computer got a virus so paint doesnt work so i cant save my pictures
Great model! I really like the rear and all the opening elements. It would be really good to see you try and improve it and make it even better :D great model, keen to see what you come up with next. - Rhys :)

Wow, this is a great F40, you really got the characteristics down, and I like the opening features. Great work!
Thanks so much! I was quite pleased with it until i saw yours! :) Yours is so accurate, and as Lego Builder states above the air intakes are ingenious. when i get a chance i will correct the bonnet and boot opening points.
