None of these models come cheap, in case you didn’t know

It’s no secret that Ferraris are expensive. They’re often considered rolling works of art more than they’re thought of as automobiles. That kind of stature affords Ferrari the space to ask for premium prices for its models. Of course, legacy has something to do with it, too. There’s a reason, after all, that the most expensive car ever sold — it fetched for almost $50 million — is a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. Thankfully, you don’t have to pay that much to buy a brand-new Ferrari these days, but don’t expect to score one for anything less than $200,000, either. Like most exotic manufacturers, Ferrari charges a premium for its vehicles because these cars are developed with the most advanced technologies in the industry. They’re not just museum-grade pieces; they’re also fast, powerful, and loaded with all the latest tech you can find in the business. Plus, there’s cache that comes with wearing the iconic Prancing Horse badge. So if you’re thinking of buying a Ferrari as your next car purchase, do so with the full understanding that you’re going to have to break the bank to afford one.

Ferrari 488

The Ferarri 488 GTB is nearing the end of its production run if it hasn’t gotten to that point already. That goes for the 488 Spyder, too. Both models will be replaced by the F8 Tributo, and while you still can buy brand-new 488s in dealerships out there, that opportunity will soon pass you by once the F8 Tributo officially takes its place in the market. Fortunately, there are some benefits to buying a 488 GTB, at least if you’re not worried about the end of its production run.

It remains one of the most affordable Ferraris in the market, with a starting price of $252,000.

The 488 Spyder is a bit more expensive at $272,000, but at that point, we’re probably talking about peanuts relative to the size of your bank accounts. Oh, and don’t worry about the 488’s coming retirement. It’s a Ferrari. It’ll always stay that way.

Ferarri 488 GTB specifications
Engine: 3.9-liter V-8 engine
Power: 661 horsepower
Torque: 561 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 3.0 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 8.3 seconds
Top Speed: 205 mph

Ferrari 812

The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been around for almost three years now, and yet, it’s still one of the most beautiful Ferraris in the automaker’s entire model lineup. The grand-tourer-style look is a sight to behold, and its status as one of the most powerful naturally aspirated production cars ever made means that the 812 Superfast won’t be depreciating in value anytime soon.

These days, you can still buy one for $315,000, though if you wait long enough — maybe until after it’s retirement — you might end up having to pay more than that. It’s an expensive car, sure, but it’s also expensive for a reason.
Ferrari 812 Superfast specifications
Engine: 6.5-liter V-12 engine
Power: 789 horsepower
Torque: 530 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 2.9 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 8.3 seconds
Top Speed: 211 mph

Ferrari GTC4Lusso

How Much Does a Ferrari Cost? High Resolution Exterior Wallpaper quality

The Ferrari GTC4Lusso is a lot like the 812 Superfast. Both are considered four-seat grand tourers, and both represent the very best of Ferrari as an automaker. Unlike the 812 Superfast, you won’t have to spend $300,000 to buy one.

Then again, the car’s base price of $298,900 makes that point completely irrelevant. The GTC4Lusso also has a year on the 812 Superfast — it launched in 2016 — which means that it’s probably in the latter stages of its life cycle.

Does that mean that the time is ripe to go buy one? Perhaps. But know that if you take the plunge and buy the GTC4Lusso for almost $300,000, you’re doing so with the full understanding that the model’s successor could be right around the car. It shouldn’t matter because it’s still a Ferrari, but you know how these things go.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso specifications
Engine: 6.3-liter V-12 engine
Power: 681 horsepower
Torque: 514 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 3.4 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 9.3 seconds
Top Speed: 208 mph

Ferrari LaFerrari

You know what’ funny about the 500-piece Ferrari LaFerrari? Production of this car started six years ago and lasted for three years. From there, Ferrari transitioned to the LaFerrari Aperta, and production of the 210 available models lasted for two years until 2018. The Ferrari LaFerrari, folks, is an old car, at least by the standards of Ferrari. And yet, one look at the limit production hypercar and you’d think that it’s the freshest performance car in the market. That’s a testament to the kind of stature that Ferrari occupies in the exotic car sphere. It’s also a testament to the lasting legacy of the LaFerrari that even if all 500 units are already accounted for — plus the 210 units of the Aperta — we still have no concrete proof of its actual price tag. Some have said that it retails for $1.4 million. That’s a fair assumption. Some have said the cost of owning one could go up to as much as $2 million.

That’s not unreasonable, either. Whatever the actual amount, just know that in 2016, a LaFerrari was auctioned off for $7 million, and a year later, the last production LaFerrari Aperta fetched $10 million in a similar auction setting.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what the hypercar’s actual price tag is at this point. If you’re in the market to buy one in the used-car market, you’re not buying one for anything close to $2 million.

Ferrari LaFerrari specifications
Engine: 6.3-liter V-12 engine / electric motor / KERS system
Power: 950 horsepower (combined)
Torque: 664 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 2.4 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: under seven seconds
Top Speed: 217 mph

Ferrari F8

The 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo Joins Ferrari's Lineup as a Successor to the 488
- image 826515

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the successor of the Ferrari 488 GTB. It’s a brand-new model — it made it world debut earlier this year at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show — so don’t expect it to come cheap. Fortunately, the F8 Tributo isn’t just the successor to the 488 GTB; it’s also a fitting successor considering all that went into the car’s development. It’s better in every way than the 488. It’s faster, fresher, and more powerful. It’s also more expensive than the supercar it’s replacing.

Fortunately, it doesn’t appear like the price difference between the two models is that significant. As it is, the price of the F8 Tributo starts at $274,280.

That’s admittedly lower than our $300,000 estimate. Don’t get us wrong. That’s a good thing for those who are looking to buy a brand-new Ferrari. The F8 Tributo is as good a choice as any, in part because it’s cheaper than most Ferraris on this list, and it also happens to be one of the newer ones on this same list.

Ferrari F8 Tributo specifications
Engine: 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine
Power: 710 horsepower
Torque: 568 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 2.9 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 7.6 seconds
Top Speed: 211 mph

Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a history-making car for Ferrari. It’s the Italian automaker’s first-ever mid-engine plug-in hybrid supercar. It’s Ferrari’s most powerful road car to date, and it’s also one of the most technologically advanced Ferraris in history. Some of its tech features are even taken straight out of Ferrari’s Formula One program. That’s what we’re dealing with here. Unfortunately, all that acclaim comes with a cost and a literal one at that. Maranello hasn’t set a specific price tag for the SF90 Stradale, but given what it’s packing, it’s safe to say that you’re going to have to sell out seven figures for a chance to take one home. And by seven figures, I don’t mean $1 million.

The SF90 Stradalae’s price tag could just as easily be $2 million, maybe even more than that.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale specifications
Engine: 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine / three electric motors
Power: 986 horsepower (combined)
Torque: 590 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 2.5 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 6.7 seconds
Top Speed: 211 mph

Ferrari Portofino

If value is your game, the Ferrari Portofino should be on your radar. It’s technically Ferarri’s entry-level model, succeeding the model — the California T — that previously occupied that spot.

Don’t dismiss the Portofino, though, because even if it sits at the lowest rung of Ferrari’s model ladder, it’s still going to set you back $215,000.

For that price, you at least have the option of owning a Ferrari without hemorrhaging your entire life savings. And for that price, you can own a fresh new Ferrari that only hit the market in 2018. That’s a good deal, folks.

Ferrari Portofino specifications
Engine: 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine
Power: 592 horsepower
Torque: 561 pound-feet of torque
0 to 62 MPH: 3.5 seconds
0 to 124 MPH: 10.8 seconds
Top Speed: 199 mph
