The exploded Ferrari F40 in its original form is one of the finest cars ever produced. It offers a top speed of 288 mph. The £1 million sports car was produced by the Italian automaker towards the end of the 1980s to the start of the 1990s. Ferrari only produced 1,311 units of this F40.

If you are looking for a place with super-rich people, you should visit Monaco, where according to statistics has a millionaire in every 3 people you meet. Monte Carlo, from what we learned, houses Max Biaggi, former Grand Prix motorcycle racer. Biaggi reportedly showed his concern concerning the recent fire incident, which happened not too far from where he lives.
