Are there are servers (linux preferably, but I suppose that can be changed) available with existing dual QSFP+ NIC cards? I know there are some dual QSFP+ PCI 3.0x8 NIC cards made by Intel, Mellanox etc but I'd much rather buy a ready-to-go server which has the right memory, horsepower etc to handle qsfp+ 40Gbe data.

The amount of "horsepower" you need to support 40GE depends on what you want to do with it.

Where I work we routinely have dual QSFP cards in last generation dual socket Xeon hosts. The current servers like a DL380 G10 with the Xeon scalable CPUs should be able to support.
I don't see any HP server with QSFP+ on the motherboard. That will be an add-in. But if you are working with a technical sales person from Dell or HP, they should be able to help you with configuration.
