A world record 60 Ferrari F40s took to the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit during Sunday’s Silverstone Classic powered by the AA event to mark the Italian supercar’s 25th birthday.

The phalanx of scarlet red F40s led a glittering parade of marquees, models and car clubs celebrating special milestones in the sun at the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival.

On Saturday it had been the turn of hundreds of BMW’s Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8 sportscars to lap the famous GP track as part of the UK’s first ‘Z-fest’.

The F40 was the world’s first 200mph road car when it appeared in 1987 and is still rated by many to be the finest supercar in history. It was also the legendary Enzo Ferrari’s ‘supercar swansong’ before his death in 1988.

In total more than 400 rare and exotic cars joined in today’s mouth-watering parade, notably iconic British sportscars such as TVRs, Lotus Elans, Triumph Spitfires, Austin Healeys and MGBs – 2012 is the MGB’s golden anniversary year – plus Lamborghini and Mercedes-Benz car club members.
