7 best Ferraris ever built

For 70 years Ferrari has been and still is a symbol for sporty and elegant cars that can go fast, really fast.

During Ferrari’s 70th anniversary celebration held by Al Tayer Motors in the UAE, Mr. Dieter Knechtel, Chief Executive Officer – Far East & Middle East, Ferrari, said “We are truly proud of the incomparable heritage and history of our brand, founded by the great Enzo Ferrari, which continues to enthral Ferraristi worldwide even today and bring in more people into the Ferrari family.”

So, to honor this milestone, we’ve put a list of the 7 greatest Ferraris of all time:

1957 Ferrari 250 GT

The 250 is Ferrari’s most successful early line. It has everything that defines a Ferrari: breathtaking design, power, and speed. It is considered by many automotive historians and Ferrari enthusiasts alike to be the most beautiful shape ever to grace an automobile. GT cars were road-legal vehicles that could also be taken to the track and compete without the need for modifications because of its powerful 3.0L V12 engine making it both the beauty and the beast.

The two-seat Gran Turismo automobile with a 3.3L Colombo 60-degree V-12 engine producing 280bhp bred a new series of supercars that remains popular among ferraristi until today. The design is evidently responsible for the modern day Berlinettas as well.

The first in a series of Ferraris to use a mid-mounted flat-12 engine. The BB produces 360bhp thanks to its 4.4L, 12 cylinders. It goes from 0 to 100km/h in 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 302km/h. Unfortunately for most of us, only 387 were built.

The predecessor of the great 250 GTO. It was also the first Ferrari to use composite materials resulting in great rigidity and lightness. Ferrari claimed that the 250 GTO can do 0- 201 km/h in 15 seconds flat with a top speed of 304 km/h. It was the first street-legal production car to reach 300 km/h, setting the benchmark for future supercars. It was later succeeded by another amazing Ferrari known as the F40.

The last car developed under the Enzo Ferrari leadership who wanted to create “the best car on the face of the earth” and the result was near perfection, and is still one of the most desired supercars. The car was inspired by the 288GTO, which featured great power and response(ability) ;). The design features a tall spoiler which might look off but was necessary to prevent the Ferrari from turning skyward as it launches toward a top speed of 314 km/h.

Following the steps of the amazing 288 GTO and F40, Enzo is a V12 mid-engine sports car that was named after the Ferrari founder, the late great, Enzo Ferrari. It was built using Formula One technology, resulting in a carbon-fiber body, electrohydraulic shift transmission, active aerodynamics,  and ceramic disc brakes. The car is as mean as it looks, thanks to it’ 6.0 L V12 engine, and a top speed of 350 km/h. Only 399 units were produced and privately sold to handpicked Ferrari clients, this may have been the best marketing strategy ever!

Another fantastic example of why after 70 years Ferrari is still the best, the LaFerrari (project name F150).  The first mild hybrid from Ferrari, with the same top speed as the Enzo! The LaFerrari has a 6.3L V12, electric motor & KERS which decreases the fuel consumption by 40%. It can go from 0 to 100km/h in 2.5 secs proving that hybrid supercars are the future!
