if the F40 was never road registrable here in Australia, why did ferrari allow the import of the cars? or where they bought in another country and then shipped to here?

Bingo, they were never sold here new and(correct me if I am wrong) I think that they are all LHD anyway.

All F40's were made in LHD and painted in Red i believe. since they were never sold by Ferrari Australia do we know how many we have in the country? since i assume there isn't a record of sales...

I remember you could bring a car into Australia and not be required to register locally if it was registered overseas but the catch was it had to leave the country every year.

So buy car in the USA bring it to Australia and then each year have a holiday in New Zealand with your Registered Left Hand Drive visitor import.

Those rules have changed now, that loop hole has been closed.  :(
