Nothing is better at showing the world that you’ve truly arrived than driving a Ferrari. Whether you’re behind the wheel of a vintage model or burning rubber in a brand-new coupe, owning a Ferrari imparts a level of eminence that few other brands do. Want to buy a Ferrari but aren’t sure which model to own? Here are some of the hottest collector’s items from the brand’s storied heritage.
We have a special place in our hearts for the Ferrari Enzo. Named after the brand’s founder, this supercar pushed boundaries and surpassed expectations, especially when it came to visual design. While most other Ferrari models are smooth and sleek, this model sported a silhouette that was sharp and angular — qualities you still don’t see in Ferrari models to this day.
Its design and its build were heavily influenced by the brand’s Formula One legacy, as the supercar utilized technology typically only reserved for F1 racecars. The designers of the Ferrari Enzo aimed to set the brand apart from its competitors like Lamborghini and Porsche in the early 2000s — and they definitely succeeded. It’s no surprise, then, that this became the most expensive car ever sold in an online auction.
Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
A signature Ferrari model that still has a massive following of fans, this two-seat grand tourer set the automaker in a new direction that would forever define the brand’s aesthetic (with its Pininfarina-designed body) and performance spirit. Of course, the V12 engine it harbored certainly contributed to that, with a 174-mph top speed and ad 0-60-mph acceleration time of just 5.4 seconds.
The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona came at a pivotal time in the company’s history in the late 1960s, and its victorious sweep at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona solidified its reputation as a performance beast. It’s a great piece for Ferrari history enthusiasts to have in their collection, as around 1,400 units were produced during its five-year production run.
Every Ferrari has a bit of racing spirit in it, but the Ferrari F40 practically embodied no-nonsense speed on the road. The last model that Enzo had a hand in before his death, the Ferrari F40 was a no-frills, street-legal race car with a twin-turbo V-8 engine that launched the car over 200 mph.
Another Pininfarina creation, the lightweight supercar embodied the late ‘80s/early ‘90s design aesthetic and was made as a celebration of the automaker’s 40th anniversary. As one of the hottest collector’s items bearing a Prancing Horse badge, the Ferrari F40 often sells for a pretty penny at auctions.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
What would a list of the best Ferrari models be without an entry recognizing the current lineup of the Italian automaker? Ferrari is far from a legacy brand, as it still produces an array of innovative, high-performance cars for drivers young and old.
One of the most noteworthy new Ferrari models on the market is the SF90 Stradale. The first Ferrari car to use plug-in hybrid technology in its V8-based powertrain, this eco-friendly supercar has more than protecting the environment on its mind: It’s one of the fastest Ferrari cars ever made, producing a net output of nearly 1,000 horsepower. What other electric-powered can rival that?
