Check out the 10 greatest Ferraris of all time

MySpin: Australian cars community MySpin 2 years ago

With Ferrari’s upcoming IPO, fans of the prancing horse will finally be able to own a piece of the Italian automaker without forking over hundreds of thousands of dollars.

But for many, there’s no substitute to the raw power and emotion of a living, breathing Ferrari. Since the company launched its road car business in 1947, it’s reputation has grown from that of a respected racing team to a creator of automotive legends.

In fact, the company has managed to maintain a waiting list for many of its models without engaging in any forms of traditional advertising.

Other the years, Ferrari has been responsible for a long line of fast, powerful, and evocative sports cars and supercars. Anyone who has ever encountered a Ferrari has his or her personal favourite. And that’s why Business Insider compiled a list of the 10 best Ferraris in the world. Feel free to debate our choices!

 

166 Inter

Built from 1948 to 1950, the Ferrari 166 Inter was based on the company's successful 166 race cars. The model was Ferrari's first international sales success.

The 166 was powered by a 2.0-litre, 90-horsepower V12 engine.

250 TR Testarossa

The 1957 250 TR was one of the first Ferraris to carry the iconic Testarossa badge. Testarossa, or 'red head,' is a reference to the car's red painted engine head covers.

The 250 TR was designed to be a dedicated road racer and was sold to Ferrari customers around the world. It was powered by a 300-horsepower, 3.0-litre V12 engine.

Testarossa

Sold from 1984 to 1996, this is car that comes to mind when you mention the name Testarossa to a modern Ferrari lover. The Pininfarina-designed grand tourer is known for its appearance in the 1980s TV show 'Miami Vice.'

At the time of its introduction, the Testarossa's 390-horsepower, 4.9-litre, 12-cylinder boxer engine made it the most powerful supercar in the world.

F40

Built in celebration of the company's 40th anniversary, the fire-breathing F40 was the final vehicle to receive founder Enzo Ferrari's seal of approval prior to his death.

Sold from 1987 to 1992, the F40 was a no-nonsense race car for the road, with no luxury touches to speak off. But with a 478-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V8 and a top speed of 201 mph on tap, who needs luxury?

Enzo Ferrari

Built from 2002 to 2004, the Enzo had the unenviable task of living up to the hard-charging reputation of its namesake – Enzo Ferrari.

Although its styling proved to be controversial, the 660-horsepower hypercar was a true performer, with a top speed of 218 mph.

Dino 246 GT

Although the Dino doesn't carry the Ferrari badge, it's still a true Ferrari through and through. Named after Enzo Ferrari's late son Alfredo ('Dino'), the 246 GT sports car was produced from 1969 to 1974.

Compared to others on this list, the Dino was relatively light on the cylinder count. Power for the 246 came from a 2.4-litre, 195-horsepower V6 engine.

308 GTS

The Ferrari 308 GTS debuted in 1977 to great fanfare. The Pininfarina-designed, targa-top sports car was the car of choice on the '80s TV show 'Magnum P.I.'

The 308 GTS was powered by 2.9-litre, 255-horsepower V8 engine.

LaFerrari

The prancing horse stepped into the 21st century with the $1 million LaFerrari hybrid hypercar. Just 499 examples of the car will ever be built, and all are spoken for.

Powered by 6.3-litre, 789-horsepower V-12 boosted by a 161-horsepower electric motor, the hybrid stallion can reach 60 mph in under 3 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 217 mph, according to Ferrari.

365 GTB/4, GTS/4 Daytona

Produced in both hardtop Berlinetta and convertible Spider variants from 1968 to 1973, the 365 Daytona is quite possibly the most beloved Ferrari of all time. The stylish sports car gets its unofficial 'Daytona' moniker from the car's dominating 1-2-3 finish at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona race.

The Daytona's 4.4-litre, 352-horsepower V-12 provided the brawn to go with the car's sleek design and driving dynamics.

250 GT California Spider

The Ferrari California Spider is the most expensive and arguably the most famous Ferrari ever produced. Its legend was enhanced by its starring role in John Hughes' 1986 film, 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off.' The California Spider regularly commands auction prices of more than $15 million.

Sold from 1958-1962 in both long- and short-wheelbase form, the 250 GT was intended to establish Ferrari in the US by evoking sunny, optimistic California. The open-top roadster got its power from a 3.0-litre, 240-horsepower V12 engine.

Honorable Mention: 458 Italia

The 458 is one of our favourite Ferraris ever produced, but falls just outside of our top 10. The 458 Italia is the perfect blend of modern technology and style with traditional Ferrari brute power and engineering.

Check out the 10 greatest Ferraris of all time

 

The Italia gets its power from a 570-horsepower, 4.5 litre normally aspirated V8 (no turbo). The 458 could be the best V8 Ferrari has ever produced. And with the 2015 introduction of the 488 GTB and its turbo V8, it could also be the last one we see for a long time.
