Such a nice rally car. It is still the only car that incorporates an AWD system that will actually split the torque without wheelspin. All other systems must wait until the ABS sensors detect abnormal wheel spin so send torque to the wheels with traction. The 959 would detect weight shifting, yaw, etc... and send it as it was needed so you could send 90% or more to the rear wheels on a drag racing launch. The F40 might be quick and all, but the 959 will keep you on the road in any conditions.
