The Valeo system, that electronic system that takes the place of your leg and the clutch pedal. Let's call it the first half of the Formula 1 System. It was melded with the standard shift gate operation of normal standard shift gear changes.
As for the factory single disc clutch, the standard transmission and its synchros, it's all factory standard.
Recent service highlights:

Seatbelt mice are currently inoperable. Driver side does not fully retract, passenger side stays fixed in place. A second, fixed connection can be used to buckle the seatbelt properly.
There is a slight pulsation from the front brakes under heavy braking. The rotors likely need to be turned as there is plenty of meat left on the pads and rotors.
Leather boot is missing one tenax clip.
Alignment is slightly off.
Rubber molding on passenger side convertible top is cracked.
The car runs and drives excellent. It always starts right up is runs perfectly smooth. It sounds great, is very powerful and turns heads everywhere. The Connolly leather smells great as does the exhaust making for an absolute joy to drive.
The Ferrari F40 presented here is the unique F40 Valeo commissioned by Gianni Agnelli, the late head of the Fiat empire. Agnelli was a huge Ferrari lover and he owned many special cars over a period of nearly 40 years. These included a special 375 America, one of the two 365 P “Tre Posti” and a one-off Testarossa Spyder. This car, chassis number 79883 is another “Agnelli Speciale” and is fitted with a Valeo electronic clutch system which had been developed and proven in the Lancia Delta Integrale rally cars, as well as a few Mondial cabriolets and coupes. Agnelli’s left leg had been weakened in a road accident and the system takes away the need for a clutch pedal. Valeo uses the normal gear lever which, when moved, sends signals to a master control unit and then to the clutch actuator motor which engages or disengages the clutch in less than 100 milliseconds. Built-in safety features stop the car being started in gear and prevent the driver selecting too high a gear or too low.
Lancia used the Valeo system to win back to back championships in 1989:
