Italian powerhouse Ferrari is infamous for having made some of the finest and fastest machines on the planet.
If any young kid ever is asked to draw and color a car, there are chances that the kid might make a small red car. That red color is often associated with the Ferrari, which happens to be the dream car of almost every automobile enthusiast. However, it is rare that the color is associated so strongly with a brand; in this case, the flaming red color on any car is instantly associated with Ferrari. If there is one thing Ferrari has always managed to achieve is that the looks of the vehicle go hand in hand with the exhilarating performance they offer. The vehicle’s design is so sharp that it almost feels like it is in motion, even when static.
The company has a Legacy of over a hundred years, and in a century, they have made some fast and iconic vehicles. In its existence, the automaker has made sports cars, hypercars, and some exclusive track-only vehicles to shatter speed records and perfect its Formula One technology.
Though it is hard to pick, here are some of the fastest and best Ferraris ever made.
Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
The first Ferrari in this list happens to be the one that is shaped like a station Wagon and has deceptive looks. It might seem like a regular old station Wagon at first, but once the driver slams the foot down, 690 HP of power is unreleased, and the vehicle catapults to the horizon. The GTC4 Lusso is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine and all-wheel drive setup, making it a potent vehicle on any terrain. There was also a smaller version of this vehicle, the GTC4 Lusso T, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9 V8 engine along with an RWD. This engine produced 602 HP. The car could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and go from 0 to 124 mph in just 10.5 seconds with a top speed of 208 MPH.
Ferrari F8 Tributo
The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a mid-engine sports car that has a classic design. Powering this elegant vehicle is a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces close to 720 HP. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and it can power from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and to 124 mph in 7.8 seconds. Flat out, the vehicle is capable of reaching an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph.
Ferrari 488 Pista
The 488 Pista uses the same engine and transmission as the F8 but in a different state of tune, making it more aggressive and faster. The cubic capacity of the engine and the power output is also identical, but what makes the difference is the different mapping of the engine, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. In addition, the vehicle can reach 124 mph in just 7.6 seconds, although the top speed remains to be similar at 211 mph.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
The Berlinetta was often considered a Grand Tourer and was also available in an ultra-rare convertible body style. The front-mid engine vehicle was offered in a rear-wheel drive layout, and what made it special was the 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12. The engine produced 730 HP, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, and it could go all the way to 124 mph in 7.5 seconds. The top speed of this vehicle was around 211 mph.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
If a vehicle has superfast in its name, it is expected to do so, and the 812 does not disappoint on this front as it had a 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12. The rear-wheel drive layout mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission allowed the vehicle to do the 60 mph run in 2.9 seconds. Of course, being convertible, this car was more about the looks than performance, but it had plenty and reserve to put most vehicles of its time to shame.
Ferrari FXX Evolution
Based on the Ferrari Enzo, the FXX evolution is a hard-core version that has better bones for the interior but an abundance of performance. The formula once sourced 3 liters naturally aspirated V12 engine produced 850HP. This allowed the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
What makes the LaFerrari special is that it was the first ever Ferrari to make use of electric assist to boost performance. The 6.3-liter hybrid V12 engine produces 950 HP. Of course, being a hybrid, this vehicle is not precisely tuned for efficiency, nor can this vehicle run on pure electric power. Nevertheless, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds, and it has a top speed of well over 220 mph.
Some Other Honorable Mentions
Several other vehicles out of the Ferrari factory did not make the list but created massive waves upon their launch. Some of them include the Ferrari 458 Speciale made in 2013, the Ferrari Enzo, the Ferrari Dino 246, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, and the ultra-rare and expensive Ferrari Monza SP2 worth over $2 million.
