A little less than a decade ago, Ferrari went to battle with Porsche and McLaren to build the most impressive and futuristic halo car, ushering the age of electrification in high-performance automobiles. The Italian marque responded by creating the LaFerrari that debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Limited to just 499 examples, the hybrid supercar is considered the pinnacle of Ferrari’s roadcar programme. The two-seat hypercar is powered by a mid-mounted 6.3-litre V12 engine which is assisted by a F1-derived KERS system and an electric motor. With a total output of 950bhp, LaFerrari became the most powerful road-legal Ferrari ever when it came out. In terms of design, many consider it as the most beautiful modern Ferrari with styling that still looks fresh and very attractive, even after seven years since it made its debut.
Developed in the mid-1980s to compete with the Porsche 959, the Ferrari F40 went on to become one of the most iconic models ever made by the Italian manufacturer. It was also the first street-legal car to hit 200mph (about 322kmph).
A predecessor to the LaFerrari, the Enzo Ferrari was created as a tribute and named after the company’s founder. The halo car was developed in 2002 using F1 technology, including the 4.7-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that produced 519hp.
Ferrari 250 GTO
Considered by many the best Ferrari ever created, the 250 GTO is one of the rarest and the most sought-after collectors’ car that has repeatedly set sale records. The current world record for the most expensive car was set by a 250 GTO in 2018 which was sold for $70 million (Rs518 crore).
