Ferrari supercars: the 288 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo
These cars are Ferrari’s limited-edition top-shelf supercars – the ones that came before LaFerrari. As we watch these four sainted cars being decanted from their transporter, it’s a reminder that the LaFerrari is part of a continually unfolding mythology, the best and purest in the business. Porsche gets close, but the operatic Italians edge the German technocrats when it comes down to it.
The new Ferrari hypercar owes just as much to its four predecessors. To find out how Maranello got here, you have to start by going back there, 30 years in fact, to 1984’s 288 GTO.
