Ferrari Supercars are world-renowned for their elegance and performance specifications. At first, the founder and manager of Scuderia Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari made cars for the road to cover up the cost of his racing program, but with time Maranello based Ferrari S.p.A evolved and established itself as one of the most revered luxury sports car manufacturers of all time. Ferrari produced dozens of iconic road-going supercars to compete with the likes of Lamborghini, Porsche, and McLaren.
Enzo Ferrari followed a simple recipe when developing his cars. It has to outperform the previous car, it has to have elegant looks, it has to be lightweight, and it has to be a Ferrari. Even today, the recipe is strictly followed by Ferrari when designing and developing their next supercar. In his own words, Enzo Ferrari described what a Ferrari car is.
“The Ferrari is a dream—people dream of owning this special vehicle and for most people it will remain a dream apart from those lucky few.” – Enzo Ferrari
Enzo Ferrari passed away a long time ago. But, his dream lives on with his magnificent racing machines.
“Death will destroy my body, but my creatures will keep on living ever after, in the years to come.” – Enzo Ferrari

When Ferrari introduced the front engine equipped Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona and Ferrari 365GTS/4 Daytona Spider, many were disappointed.
However, the designing elements such as the lack of traditional front grille to maintain a droop snoot style front fascia, and more spacious interior meant that it was able to turn the heads of the onlookers.

Pininfarina was the dominant force behind the design of Ferrari sports cars and supercars. When Ferrari decided to hire Bertone design house to design its new junior supercar, the replacement for Dino 246GTS, they probably did so to make it differentiate from the actual Ferrari supercars.
Marcello Gandini at Bertone used his wedge concept cars as the main influence when designing the Dino 308GT4.
Dino 308GT4 2+2 was actually a variant of the Dino 208, equipped with a mere 2.0-liter engine, delivering only 255bhp.

1981 Ferrari Mondial 8 and 1984 Mondial QV, Mondial Cabriolet QV

The Mondial QV and Mondial Cabriolet QV were unveiled in 1984 and now featured an updated 3.0-liter V8 engine with a maximum power delivery of 240 bhp. The maximum speed was now 149mph.
A total of 703 Mondial 8 cars, 1145 Mondial QV, and 629 Mondial Cabriolet QV cars were produced.
1984 Ferrari 288GTO
The Ferrari 288GTO was undoubtedly one of the best Ferrari cars of all time. The Ferrari 288GTO featured styling cues borrowed from the Ferrari 308GTB. It came equipped with a larger front lip spoiler, broader wings, and a kicked-up tail to improve aerodynamic drag and downforce, resulting in better grip and improved cornering.
The lightweight construction and the 400 bhp delivery from its 2.8-liter V8 meant that it had better power to weight ratio. The top speed was measured at 190mph.
Ferrari 288GTO was seriously quick and was actually developed to compete in FIA Group B tournaments, but due to the changes of Group B regulations, it never saw any competition.
A total of 272 Ferrari 288 GTO cars were produced.

This is a supercar developed by Ferrari with the sole purpose of defeating the astonishing Porsche 959. Porsche 959 featured many sophisticated electronic driver aids such as the electronically locked differential and electronic traction control, and basically, it was a computer on wheels. It was the most advanced car of its time.
Ferrari, despite their racing heritage, was a traditional car company and wasn’t exactly the leader in innovations. Enzo Ferrari always relied on his proven recipe when developing a car, make it lightweight and equip it with a powerful engine to keep the power to weight ratio at healthy levels, a good transmission system mated to the engine to deliver power smoothly, a good suspension system to make it handle better around the corners.
Enzo Ferrari followed his intuition to use the proven recipe to create the most iconic Ferrari of its time. This car featured a carbon fiber composite chassis and bodywork. The interior was spartan and featured only the necessary components to save weight.
This was the first production car to feature a complete carbon fiber composite body and chassis.
To power the car, a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V8 was chosen. The total power output of the engine was 478 bhp allowing the car to reach a top speed of 201mph. This is also the first Ferrari to achieve a top speed of more than 200mph. This is also considered the first-ever Ferrari hypercar.
