Slideshow: 5 Dream Ferraris We All Want to Own
Whether you saw them in the movies or had their posters on your wall as a kid. These are the creme de la creme the prancing horse has to offer…
Gran Turismo Omologato are three words that come with big aspirations and an even bigger price tag. Routinely trading hands for tens of millions of dollars it’s easy to see why this car evokes so much emotion in people. With its curvaceous handmade body and 3.0 liter Tipo V12 the 250 GTO is an instant classic that reminds us of a time when sports cars were raw and mechanical with a heavy thirst for gasoline and speed.
La Ferrari FXX K EVO
Jumping from lightweight to light speed is the next car on our list. The La Ferrari is a technical masterpiece that gets its proverbial speakers blown out by the introduction of the FXX K EVO model. Ultra exclusive, tailor-made and insanely fast are just a few ways to describe this king of the supercars. 1,036hp with a dry weight of about 2,500lbs means this car is all about pinning you into the seat and making you scream from fear. It features 75% more downforce than the standard La Ferrari. Unreal.
Pininfarina designs have a way of looking good for decades. As the Mythos turns 30 next year it’s a great reminder of an era where cars looked radical even at a standstill. 390 horsepower only moves 2,750lbs of weight with a gated 5-speed manual gearbox. That alone is why this car needs to be on the list. Performance figures aren’t stated, but a top speed of approximately 180mph is what we do know.
360 Challenge Stradale
360 Modenas is one of the most hair-raising experiences you can have in a car, period. Having said that it is a car that rewards the driver tremendously for patience and skill. Challenge Stradale epitomizes this philosophy by blending equal parts road car and racing car. This car really snuck in a Goldilocks zone where manufacturers were still producing manual transmission cars with screaming NA engines. Asking price? North of $200,000!
The first car to wear a Ferrari badge. Would it get any cooler than going out to your garage and seeing this next to your FXX K? What a reminder of how far the automobile has come. What a reminder of how far Ferrari has come. Speed is hardly the goal with this machine though it must have been fast with 118hp all those years ago. In case you’re wondering the engine only needs to propel 1,400lbs around so it’s not exactly a slouch. It also featured a 5-speed transmission — something that wouldn’t become commonplace for many years to come. Until next time…
