Here’s a list of the fastest Ferraris ever produced

What is the fastest Ferrari? That’s one of the most common questions asked in the car community. However, there are so many ways to deal with this question. Is it fastest in terms of top speed or perhaps acceleration? Ferraris, however, excel in various metrics. One may have the highest top speed, but it won’t have the fastest 0-62 mph time. So, with all factors considered, here are the fastest Ferraris ever produced, ranked by their top speed, along with all the important metrics you need to know.

Ferrari Enzo - 218 mph

If a car was named after its founder, then it means it has to be good. That is exactly the case with the Ferrari Enzo, which succeeds the F50. It’s basically an F1 car for the road, with its carbon fiber body, its 6.3-liter V-12, and its F1-style six-speed automated manual that sends power to its rear wheels. It was a huge step up over the F50, and only 400 were ever produced. It is the fastest Ferrari, with a top speed of 218 mph.

If we were being honest, the LaFerrari is one of the most ridiculous names we’ve ever heard. Thankfully, the supercar’s performance is everything and makes us forget the name. It’s part of a triumvirate of hybrid hypercars that also includes the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. It offered both bonkers performance as well as 40-percent less fuel consumption than a pure internal combustion engine. Like the Ferrari Enzo, the La Ferrari was produced in limited quantities, with only 500 examples of the coupe and 210 examples of the roadster. It’s also got the ’Ferrari speed’ that the brand’s known for, topping out at 217 mph and occupying the second position in the list.

Even Ferrari isn’t immune to electrification, and the SF90 Stradale became its first plug-in hybrid supercar. It’s also the most powerful Ferrari to date, with its twin-turbo V8 and electric motors that produce a combined 986 horsepower along with an electric range of 16 miles (26 kilometers). This supercar serves as a stepping stone until Ferrari releases its first pure electric vehicle. While it may not be the fastest Ferrari in terms of top speed, it sure is the quickest to 60 mph, taking just two seconds from a standstill.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is an evolution of the F12 Berlintta, with which it shares its fundamentals. Its 6.5-liter V-12 is one of the most powerful in production that doesn’t come with any forced induction, churning out 789 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque, all of which is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Believe it or not, this exotic car also happens to be faster than the more expensive and even more exclusive LaFerrari by exactly a second around the Fiorano race track. Impressive supercar this is, then.

Succeeding the 488 GTB is the F8 Tributo, which also shares its fundamentals with the 458 Italia. It’s a testament to how well-engineered the platform is, which dates back to 2010. Powering it is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8, which during its time, was the most powerful Ferrari ever produced. It puts out 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, with power being sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The 211 mph top speed makes it one of the fastest Ferraris.

The Ferrari 599 GTO is basically a road-legal version of the 599XX racecar, and it was just as bonkers as the racecar that inspired it. It was the fastest car during its time to lap their Fiorano test track, beating the Ferrari Enzo by one second. It also weighed 220 pounds less than the standard 599 GTB, and production was limited to just 599 cars. With a top speed of 208, it is one of the fastest Ferraris ever made.

As a follow-up in Ferrari’s electrification plans, its successor to the F8 Tributo is also a plug-in hybrid in the form of the 296 GTB.

Just like the Ferrari Enzo, the F50 is also an F1 car for the road. Unfortunately, it was always overshadowed by the F40, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t any good. Its 4.7-liter V-12 that came out of an F1 racecar is a return to form for Ferrari’s flagship V-12 cars. It also was a lot more comfortable than the rougher F40, which is partly thanks to adaptive suspension. At the time, it was one of the fastest Ferraris ever made with a top speed of 202 mph.

The Ferrari F40 is the last supercar that its founder, Enzo Ferrari, oversaw before passing away. Its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-8 produced 477 horsepower, and it was enough for it to be the fastest Ferrari during its time. This was despite having no form of electronic driver aid. The F40 was notoriously known for being untamable by anyone but the most highly-skilled and seasoned drivers. Those that did possesses the right skill set, however, could exploit its full level of performance. Oh, and did we mention this car had two fuel tanks on each side? This Ferrari’s top speed is rated at 201 mph.

Ferrari Portofino - 199 mph

Even if the Portofino is the "entry-level" Ferrari, its performance is still just as deserving as any supercar with the prancing horse badge. Its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 is shared with the 488 GTB and the F8 Tributo, and it offered just enough power and performance for the Portofino to be usable on a daily basis. It has a luxurious cabin and at least for a Ferrari, a comfortable ride. Further proof of its usability is its cabin tech, which was the most advanced for a Ferrari when it was released.

Remember when Ferrari used to dominate Formula 1? Yeah, we miss those days, too. The Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16M was a special edition to celebrate its 16th victory in the Constructor’s Championship in 2008, and it came with extra chassis bracing over the F430 to cope with the added performance. It also featured numerous carbon fiber parts to save weight, along with five-spoke forged alloy wheels.

Its engine is an upgraded version of the standard F430’s 4.3-liter V-8, and it produces 503 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque, sending power to the rear wheels via a six-speed single-clutch automated manual.

What Ferrari Has The Most Horsepower?

The most powerful Ferrari right now is the SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid. It outs out 986 horsepower, courtesy of the twin-turbo V-8 and the three electric motors. Even more amazing is the fact that this is a series-production model and not a limited-production model like the Ferrari Enzo or F50.

This would be, yet again, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. It can go to 60 mph from rest in two seconds, and all the way up to 211 mph. If you want the fastest Ferrari, the Enzo, you’ll have a tough time finding one and will have to shell out millions to own it.

Are Ferraris Faster Than Lamborghinis?

This again depends on what is considered fast. If this is in terms of acceleration, then Ferrari SF90 Stradale and LaFerrari outperform some of the fastest Lamborghinis in terms of acceleration, including the Veneno, Sian FKP 37, and Centenario, whose 0-62 mph times are at 2.8 seconds.

On the other hand, in terms of top speed, then the Lamborghini Veneno is faster. Whereas the fastest Ferrari is the Enzo at 218 mph, the Veneno has a higher top speed of 221 mph.
