The F40 is still wildly regarded as the greatest Ferrari ever.
I remember when the F40 and Porsche 959 came out at about the same time, with wildly different approaches to going fast. I read so many car magazine reviews of these beasts - and still love them both.
The 4BW matches [the F40] in power and performance
I looked this up and, holy sh*t, you're right. The 4BW is in the ballpark.

The F40 pulls harder at higher speeds. But look at those braking numbers! I would LOVE to see a lap time comparison. Even if the F40 pulled out a lead on a long straight, I could see the 4BW dive-bombing it coming into the corner at the end of the straight.
