The Ferrari brand has had a long-standing history of exclusivity and high-performance since 1939. That leaves a lot of room for great cars. Here is the list of top 10 best Ferrari models of all time:
1975 Ferrari 512 BB
This is one of the smaller Ferrari models ever made but that doesn’t cut down on its premier drive-ability. In fact, it fits right into the Ferrari family with its 12-cylinder engine set in an opposed fashion. That makes it capable of 187-mph and it can get up to 60-mph in just 5.5 seconds. Though the car is sleek and sexy, it also comes with large rear tires that can push the car to top performance.
1962 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta
This is a car that was created with the Ferrari name but never truly meant for speed. In fact, it was created as an answer to the need for luxury vehicles. There is more interior space in this car than with most other models. Despite its eye on functionality, the vehicle still maintains the sleek look of the brand. It has a beautiful look that any driver would be proud to take out on the town.
1949 Ferrari 166 MM Touring Barchetta
This is one of the first Ferraris to take its wheels to the market. It remains one of the rarest, and as a result one of the most valuable. The MM of the name represents the well-known and historic race Mille Miglia. This open-top designed two-seater is outstanding in quality. What makes it a stand out is its ease of drive-ability, light weight and of course its amazing body style. Though the body is relatively simple, it is one of the most memorable in that simplicity—a sign of Ferrari and its expertise with workmanship.
1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
This car has 300-HP V12 250GTO. It is a car that was initially built for high-speed racing, but is so good looking that it quickly founds its place on “best vehicles” all throughout the market. What’s striking about the vehicle is the elliptical grille, the triple vents and the large uniquely-shaped fenders. Add to that the exhaust pipes that are quad-set and you have a winning vehicle. On top of its drive, it also is a standout with looks and any driver would be proud to take the wheel.
250 GT California Spyder LWB
This was a car created specifically for Americans. It is sleek, elegant and sexy. The car is a convertible and perfect for long rides in California on Pacific Coast Highway. Just imagine roaring down the highway with the ocean on one side, wind blowing in your hair. This is the perfect car to take you up and down the ride. It is perfect but good luck getting your hands on one. There were only fifty made. Ever.
1968 Ferrari 365 Daytona GTB/4
The Daytona is meant for speed and it is evident with the body design. It has a wedge-shape body with nice curves- front and back. The hood is notably long and creates plenty of space for the super-charged V12 engine with 44mm carburetors. This is the car to take you on that long road trip that allows for top speeds. It’s another special Ferrari that is going to leave other drivers in the dust and make its driver very happy.
1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta
This car was first introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1966. It took viewers’ breath away because of its fantastic design and the added extras incorporated into the body. It has specially designed and placed grills throughout the body and each one makes it a more creative design. This is another Ferrari that while being a standout with drive, is also a work of art. It works with a 3.3-liter V12 engine so it has plenty of power underneath its elegant look.
1959 Ferrari 400 Super-America Coupe Speciale
This car has the word “speciale” in the title and that’s appropriate. It stands out in the halls of Ferrari history because of its body. Rather than looking like a traditional model by the brand, it looks more like a thick limo of the 50s. It makes sense though.
The car designer was looking for something unique that would create a splash in the market. This is definitely it. It is boxy, but still manages to be a beautiful car with a great body. It has a large rectangular grill, an ultra-thin chrome bumper and chrome headlights. Everything about this car adds up to unique; together its features mean quality.
1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
This Ferrari is all about the curves. Just look at the body and you can see it is not just a car, but a work of art. Testa Rossa means “red head” and it was given this name for good reason. The red valves and splash of red accents on the body all earn the title well. Because of its drive and its look, this is considered to be one of the most expensive cars in history. What is the value? When last quoted, a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa will put you back just-under $20-million!
1984 Ferrari 288 GTO
The 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO is proudly referred to as the company’s first official “supercar”. The reason is primarily because of its low body and large curved front end. It has fenders that flare out and a high backend. Although only 200 were commissioned, in the end just-over 270 were made for market. It has a twin-turbo V8 engine that can get you going to over 180-mph. That makes it a great car to drive…if you can find one! [td_smart_list_end]
