The Ferrari 348 is probably the cheapest way into Ferrari ownership. It was the last V8 model produced before Enzo Ferrari passed away. It had around 300 bhp, and accelerated from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds before topping out at 171mph.

It was designed to inherit cues from the Testarossa, with the side strakes and lights. Considering it's price, it is a bargain, and with the prancing horse badge and Testarossa looks, your neighbour will think you have made it. If you have the money, it's this or a V8 Vantage.

We take a bit of a step forward in modernity from the 348. It has 400bhp, 0-60 in 4.5 sec and a top speed of 190mph. This was the car from which the 430, 458 and 488 have evolved down a direct bloodline. The spider will cost another £20,000 and the rarer Challenge Stradale commands around £200,000. But the standard car is a perfectly reasonable buy.

Ferrari 599 - £90,000 to £100,000

This is the first of the proper GT Ferraris on the list. V12 upfront, comfortable pod of luxury in the back, big prancing horse shields on sides. With plenty of examples under £100,000, we are starting to get into the big boy Ferraris.

612 horsepower, 0-60 in a blistering 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 208mph, means this car sits at the top of even today's performance spectrum.

The first convertible in the list is also the most recent model. It brought a new buyer into the mix for Ferrari, and this car was largely unliked by the motoring community. It was heavy, and weirdly styled, and frankly a bit ugly from the rear. 553bhp, 0-60 in 3.3 sec & 196mph top end. But this car will appeal to those who want a recent and sub-100k Fezza.

This car is absolutely stunning, one of the best looking cars in our modern age. It has a V8 with 562bhp, 0-60 in 3 seconds and a top speed of 202mph making it easily the fastest car on this list. Mileage may be around the 50k mark at this price point though so it is a risky buy. However I think this is a car that will appreciate in value over the next few years.

  • Can you buy me one?

  • The Mondial, 456, 612, possibly a 208 (if you're in Italy), some 308s and 328s, are considerably cheaper than California T...

  • Pretty sure a Mondial is cheaper than any of these. Granted it's because they're awful, but if you're looking for the cheapest that's usually the one.

  • If I suddenly win £200,000 we can have one each 😂

  • I like the 348, even though it’s the cheapest, it’s the best looking Ferrari in this category in my opinion
