Here’s a list of the fastest Ferraris ever produced

What is the fastest Ferrari? That’s one of the most common questions being asked among the car community. However, there are so many ways to deal with this question. Is it fastest in terms of top speed or probably 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, along with all the important metrics you need to know.

1. Ferrari 812 Superfast

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is an evolution of the F12Berlintta of 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, and it produces 789 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque, and this drives 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.

2. Ferrari F8 Tributo

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 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8, which during its time is the most powerful Ferrari has produced. It produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, with power being sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

3. Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16M

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.

Engine 4.3-liter V-8
Horsepower 503 hp
Torque 347 lb-ft (471 Nm)
Transmission 6-speed single-clutch automated manual
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 3.7 seconds,

4. Ferrari Enzo

If a car was named after its founder, then it means it has to be that 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 sending power to its rear wheels. It was a huge step up over the F50, and only 400 were ever produced.

Engine 6.3-liter V-12
Horsepower 651 horsepower
Torque 485 lb-ft (657 Nm)
Transmission 6-speed single-clutch automated manual
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 3.6 seconds
Top speed 211 mph (340 km/h)
1/4 mile 11 sec. @ 133 mph

Ferrari LaFerrari

5. Ferrari LaFerrari

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 but. 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 versus if it did not receive any form of electrification. Like the Ferrari Enzo, the La Ferrari was produced in limited quantities, with only 500 for the coupe and 210 for the roadster.

Engine 6.3-liter V-12 with one electric motor
Horsepower 950 hp combined
Torque 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) combined
Transmission 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 2.6 seconds
Top speed 218 mph/352 km/h
1/4 mile 9.7 sec. @149 mph

Ferrari F40

6. Ferrari F40

The Ferrari F40 is the last supercar that its founder, Enzo Ferrari, oversaw before passing away. Its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V8 produced 477 horsepower and it was enough for it to be the fastest Ferrari during its time. This is despite having no form of electronic driver aid, and it was notorious for having a high skill level to fully exploit its performance. Oh, and did we mention this car had two fuel tanks on each side?

Engine 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-8
Horsepower 477 horsepower
Torque 426 lb-ft (577 Nm)
Transmission 5-speed manual
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 4.7 seconds
Top speed 199 mph (321 km/h)
1/4 mile 11.8 sec. @ 124 mph

Ferrari 599 GTO

7. Ferrari 599 GTO

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 lb less than the standard 599 GTB, and production was limited to just 599 cars

Engine 6.0-liter V-12
Horsepower 661 horsepower
Torque 457 lb-ft (620 Nm)
Transmission Six-speed single-clutch automated manual
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 3.3 seconds
Top speed 208 mph (335 km/h)
1/4 mile 11.0 sec.

Ferrari Portofino

8. Ferrari Portofino

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.

Engine 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8
Horsepower 592 hp
Torque 561 lb-ft (760 Nm )
Transmission 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 3.5 seconds
Top speed 199 mph (320 km/h)
1/4 mile 10.9 sec. @ 125 mph

9. Ferrari SF90 Stradale

Even Ferrari isn’t immune to electrification, and with the SF90 Stradale, this became their first plug-in hybrid supercar. It’s also the most powerful Ferrari to date, with its twin-turbo V8 and electric motors producing a combined 986 horsepower along with an electric range of 16 miles (26 kilometers). This supercar serves as a stepping stone until Ferrari releases their first electric vehicle (EV).

10. Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 GTB is the predecessor of the F8 Tributo and is essentially a turbocharged version of the 458 Italia that it replaced. Its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 produces 661 horsepower and 760 Nm (516 pound-feet), which had the highest specific horsepower and torque per liter of 169.4 hp/liter and 194.8 Nm (144 pound-feet)/liter, for a Ferrari during its time.

11. Ferrari SF90 Stradale

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. Dubbed the "first real Ferrari with six cylinders", it comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 and an electric motor that has a combined 819 horsepower and an electric range that’s good for 16 miles (25 kilometers). Despite the electrification, the 296 GTB only has a dry weight of 3,241 lbs (1,470 kg).

Engine 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 with two electric motors
Horsepower 818 hp combined
Torque 546 lb-ft (740 Nm) combined
Transmission 8-speed dual-clutch automatic

12. Ferrari F50

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, which is advanced for its time. It also has a proper Ferrari flagship top speed of 202 mph.

Engine 4.7-liter V-12
Horsepower 512 hp
Torque 347 lb-ft (471 Nm)
Transmission 6-speed manual
Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive
0-62 mph (100 km/h) 3.9 seconds
Top speed 202 mph (325 km/h)
1/4 mile 11.9 sec. @ 122 mph

What Is The Fastest Ferrari?

Ferraris excel in numerous ways, especially as we head into a world of electrification. In terms of top speed, the fastest Ferrari is the LaFerrari, and then in terms of acceleration from 0-62 mph (100 km/h), this would be the SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid supercar.

To make things simple to understand, these are the top 10 fastest Ferraris in terms of top speed:

Model Top Speed
1 LaFerrari 218 mph (352 km/h)
2 SF90 Stradale 211 mph (340 km/h)
3 812 Superfast 211 mph (340 km/h)
4 Ferrari Enzo 211 mph (340 km/h)
5 F8 Tributo 211 mph (340 km/h)
6 599 GTO 208 mph (335 km/h)
7 296 GTB 205 mph (330 km/h)
8 488 GTB 205 mph (330 km/h)
9 F50 202 mph (325 km/h)
10 Portofino 199 mph (321 km/h)

And, then these are the top 10 in terms of acceleration from 0-62 mph (100 km/h):

Model 0-62 mph time
1 SF90 Stradale 2.5 sec.
2 LaFerrari 2.6 sec.
3 812 Superfast 2.9 sec.
4 F8 Tributo 2.9 sec.
5 488 GTB 3.0 sec.
6 599 GTO 3.3 sec.
7 Portofino 3.5 sec.
8 Ferrari Enzo 3.6 sec.
9 F430 Scuderia Spider 16M 3.7 sec.
10 F50 3.9 sec.

Interestingly enough, while the LaFerrari may be the fastest in terms of top speed, it was outperformed by the 812 Superfast around the Fiorano track by a whole second.

What Ferrari Has The Most Horsepower?

The most powerful Ferrari right now is the SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid. Thanks to the aid of its electric motors, as well as its all-wheel drive (AWD) powertrain, it’s also the fastest accelerating Ferrari to date. 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.

What’s The Fastest Ferrari Money Can Buy Right Now?

This would be, yet again, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. Now that the LaFerrari is discontinued, the SF90 Stradale is the fastest right now in the Italian marque’s stable, not just in terms of top speed, but also in acceleration.

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 LaFerrari at 218 mph, the Veneno has a higher top speed of 221 mph.
