"Wear a helmet."

That's what Eddie Cheever said to Denise McCluggage back in the June 13, 1988 issue of Autoweek, when she drove Ferrari's newest and über-est supercar—the still and forever always legendary F40.

"Forget its $260,000 price, 200-plus top speed," we teased. "What's most memorable about this car is the way it feels."

That price, by the way, is closer to $496,853.91 today—about one-fourth the price of a Bugatti Vitesse, and a paltry sum compared to the 283-mile F40 that recently sold at auction for $710,000 (and once owned by Lee Iacocca. I guess he found a better car, and he bought it). What car you buy with your fantasy lottery winnings determines a lot about you. If you're in the F40 Fantasy Camp, visit Autoweek.com to see what it's like to drive one.

And if you want an F40 yourself, we hear Costco has a deal on a three-fer Fezza package.
