Extraordinary brand strength allows the company that puts its name to some of the world's crappiest merchandise to still cut it as the most exotic, desirable and simply awesome builder of cutting edge supercars. The biggest problem is whether the burgeoning generation of rich young cretins will finally screw it up.
$624,300 - $650,300
Two of you sit in leather-sculpted splendour immediately behind a divine V12 engine. All things considered, this may be the greatest all-round Ferrari ever made.
If your two criteria are 'Ferrari' and 'people carrier' then this is the car for you. Why? Because it seats four. Or you could try a Holden Epica. I'll get me coat.
Ferrari has succeeded in making a slightly gentler car, a more usable car, a car less likely to want to smack you in the mouth if you screw up, without diluting the Ferrari experience.
$434,150 - $573,700
Visceral perfection in a mid-engined two-seater with scalpel-sharp dynamics. Get the lighter, harder Scuderia and you're looking at pure, distilled Ferrari DNA.
As close as you'll ever get to the noise of a V8 engine attempting to devour your brain through your ears. It's the poseurs' choice next to the Scud, though.
