With so many people buying supercars and abusing them due to a lack of understanding these days, we long to see people showing proper respect to such machines more than ever.
We've recently come across a photo that let us know our wish has been fulfilled. Yes, this is a woman worshiping a Ferrari F40 as the true automotive god this Prancing Horse is.

The pic was snapped at the Marconi Automotive Museum and Foundation for Kids, a temple in California that could teach one a thing or two about automotive history. The F40 is just one of the automotive deities exposed here, with the Museum serving as a home to memorable vehicles from many ages and parts of the world.

The F40 is actually a four-wheeled god

Then again, the F40 does deserve to be worshiped. This was the last turbo Ferrari built before sticking to natural aspiration. Maranello's recent return to the twin-turbo religion, which has spawned the California T and the 488 GTB, as well as the 488 GTB Spider, ows a lot to the reputation of the F40.

Sure, Ferrari have switched to forced induction in the face of emission pressure, but the badass image of the F40 has silenced many critics.

Only 1,311 units of the F40 were made between the late 80s and the mid 90s, with the vehicle standing as perfect statement of the Ferrari extravaganza. Sure, this meant it was far from an easy fast drive, but the engagement and aggression is what has drawn many towards it, whether we're talking about owners or fans who have to resort to scale models and posters.

The F40 continues to stir the crowds and the latest example of this comes from its one-off F40 LM Barchetta incarnation. We're talking about what is probably the heaviest F40 custom project to date and a car that's far from being babied.
