    Hopefully one day the car will be restored to its original and proper specification.

    Let's all hope that somebody decides restore it... Maybe this Tavarish guy on Youtube ???

    In the meantime, watch this video of when this F40 was in a better shape...

    Eugenio Amos:
    "This is my second Ferrari F40. I owned one before that had covered 40,000km. It was road legal first, and then converted into a racing car, and then back to road legal again. But, back in those days, it was all I could afford. I sold it for a very good price and then bought this one at auction. It had single ownership and 5,000km on the clock, so maybe it was a bit of a bold move to repaint it. Still, it’s important for me to pay tribute to the automotive brands I love and work with and respect their histories. For this reason, I chose to paint the F40 in ‘Verde Abetone’, a colour the brand used in the 1970s and ’80s. The interior is upholstered in brown Alcantara from Schedoni, Ferrari’s official supplier. So, if someone had had a bit more imagination back in the day, this car could have been period correct. As you can see, green is my favourite colour – I’m a little bit obsessed with it."

    Certainly anyone is entitled to as they please with their personal property, though I still think it's a shame. Again, here's hoping it's all reversed and restored some day.

    That's a fair question.

    As I understand it, in Connecticut you can operate a motor vehicle on foreign plates for a period of one year if you are a foreign traveler with a valid out-of-country license and an International Driver Permit which is obtained from the home country of the aforementioned plates.

    Thank you for a satisfactory reply, at last.

    @amenasce the fact that it is over 25 years means little without additional US law knowledge… I guess you can't simply legally drive literally anything which is over 25 years old. FWIW, in my country that makes it possible to register as historic, but still needs to wear Spanish official historic plates, for example.
