Ranking The Best Ferraris Of The Last Decade? Virtually Impossible*
*But I do it anyways.
Ferrari. The name might as well mean "Hello. I'm here to make you drool and then kick your butt. But anyways, how are you?". They're arguably one of the best manufacturers out there and yes, they're overrated, alright, but if you really think about it, the stuff they've done- they deserve to be a household name that strikes awe into every person's heart.
After all, few create visceral driving experiences quite like Ferrari – ones that merge man and machine in such an intuitive way. Okay, sure, not every car out of Maranello has been a home run, but the brand has produced many masterpieces over its 74 years making road cars – much of which came about not too long ago. So, as awesome as it is to reminisce about classics such as the F40, F50 and Daytona, it's time to show some love and appreciation for Ferrari's more recent works of art. These are the cars that graced the supercar scene in the last decade, the Testarossas of modern-day – the icons of tomorrow. Here are the 5 best Ferrari's of the 2010s.
5. Ferrari F12 TDF
If a V12 that produces 769hp up front doesn't scare you yet, well, brava. This Ferrari can sprint from 0-60 within 3 seconds. And mind you, this is when the power is transmitted to the rear wheels only. The top speed has not been revealed ever, but with the aggression it puts forth, it can easily surpass the top speed of its donor car, the F12 Berlinetta which hits 211 mph. Put simply, with today's automotive landscape so swept up with safety, electrification, etc., we car enthusiasts have to appreciate mad machines such as this V12 track monster, no matter how scary and untamed they are to drive. Plus, with a car that looks as insane as the F12tdf, drivers should know what they're getting into – a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive supercar with a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds.
4. Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
The GTC4 Lusso is a very rare species. It's essentially a three-door wagon with a 681bhp 6.3-litre V12 up front, a 0-60mph time of 3.2 seconds, and four-wheel-drive. That's not a setup you see every day and its one that definitely deserves appreciation. Ferrari basically made this a mansion on wheels, giving it an unrivaled level of practicality and performance. Only a select few modern super SUVs come close to matching what the Lusso can provide.
3. Ferrari 488 Pista
Not only is it show-stoppingly stunning, it's also adrenaline pumping bonkers. The 488 Pista is the GTB's crazier, faster, track-focused sibling. It's positively mental, with 710bhp, 568lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds. The Pista may share the same 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 as its slightly slower relative, but 50% of the engine's components are new for the model. With a more hardcore setup in general, the Pista is a much more serious – though still insanely lively and entertaining – animal. It can very well eat a circuit for breakfast, posting lightning-fast lap-times. Simply put, it's a beast.
2. Ferrari 812 Superfast
If you thought the F12 TDF was mental, then wait until you hear about the 812 Superfast. As the name suggests, it's blisteringly rapid with a 789bhp 6.5-liter V12 mounted in front of the driver. Power is sent to the rear wheels, aiding a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds. The 812 is more of a super GT than the track-focused F12 TDF, so it is that bit easier to live with. But don't be fooled for a second, the Superfast is by no means domesticated – it'll still get the adrenaline pumping like its predecessors.
1. Ferrari 458 Speciale
To improve upon an already perfect car is, by no means, an easy task. Or a necessary one, at that. And yet, Ferrari did it and, dare I say, perfectly so. It's lighter, meaner, and faster, with the 4.5-liter V8 now producing a 597bhp instead of 562bhp. The car's 0-60mph time has also been reduced from 3.2 seconds to 2.9 seconds. The Speciale is one of Ferrari's greatest triumphs and a fantastic final entry into its long line of naturally aspirated V8 supercars. It ended an era, which is sad to see – but, honestly, what a way to go.
