See this collection of answers for thoughts about the source and original usage of the term.
Indeed.That's an F40! The horror, the horror...
There is a possibility that an unscrupulous owner of 'several' might decide to 'torch' the one that is in worst condition in order to increase the value of the remaining stock.

Then again, it's not entirely unknown for Ferraris to catch fire without outside help, so there's probably no conspiracy required .
How do they compare to the East German Trabant?Yeah, they're a death trap. An accident waiting to happen.
Nearly as dodge as Vauxhall Zafiras.

I've just come across this post by chance and have reread the news report for my personal entertainment.Woman and friend broke their legs after using a swimming pool slide during a drunken night out.
Claire Vickers, 46, and pal Barry Douglas, 44, remained stuck in a flume for two hours with fractured shins and shattered feet before they were rescued.
The two had broken into Aldershot Lido in Hampshire in the early hours of August 4.
After splashing water down from the top to generate extra speed, Claire and Barry stepped into the tube together, thinking that it was clear all the way down.
But just before they came out the bottom, their legs collided with a barrier that had been placed at the exit.
It occurred to me that it's not beyond the bounds of drunken stupidity that they might have chosen to go down head first! Considering the severity of the injuries to their legs, I'm guessing that might well have have proved fatal...I've just come across this post by chance and have reread the news report for my personal entertainment.
Excellent stupidity there.
Christopher Broad, 16, was killed when he took it in turns with Joshua Vining, 17, to wear the bulletproof vest and fire the gun at one another on April 3.
Vining was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child and another friend, Colton Whitler, 17, was charged with lying to police about who fired the shots.
The incident in Belleview, Florida, was recorded by Evan Vowell, 18, who handed the footage over to police as evidence.
Christopher then fired a single shot at Vining while he wore the vest. They then swapped roles and Vining shot the gun once and then four more times in quick succession.
There's no reason to block off a slide to stop it being used after hours. Only staff would have access and they wouldn't use it then.What I always wondered about that though is that, fine, block off the water slides to prevent people using them after hours, but how about blocking off the bottom and the top?
