WIN Ferrari F40 1:18 scale replica signed by the guy who designed it!

This Ferrari F40 model, signed by Leonardo Fioravanti, could be yours

We really don’t want to do this, but we’re doing it. We’re giving away an officially authorised Hot Wheels model of the legendary Ferrari F40, signed on the roof by the very man that designed the actual F40, one of the leading Italian car designers of the last three decades – Leonardo Fioravanti.

And he didn’t just design one famous Ferrari – having worked for Pininfarina for 24 years before joining Ferrari itself after doing the F40 – he can be credited with the Dino, the Daytona, the P5 and P6, the 512 Berlinetta Boxer, 365 GT4 2+2 which lead to the Ferrari 400 and the gorgeous 308 and 328 and of course the awesome forerunner of the F40, the 288 GTO.

And since he was Head of the judging team at the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance we could not resist the opportunity to corner this charismatic and hugely creative Italian designer and engineer, and ask him to sign a model of one of his most iconic designs – the Ferrari F40.

Now this autographed collector’s edition F40 has instantly become priceless, and much as it pains us, we’re foolishly giving you the chance to win it off us!

All you have to do is answer the following five questions (all related to the Kuwait Concours d’Elegance) and email your answers with your full name to

We’ll announce the names of all those who get the answers correct on this website and on our Facebook page by Thursday afternoon – so hurry with those answers!

You must be in the UAE to be eligible for entry to this competition.

The winner will then be drawn out of a hat at our Car and Bike Meet at the Sharjah Old Cars Club on Friday 24th between 2-8pm.
