The 288 GTO. Mean and very fast. A B-group rallying champion till it got banned. Eddie Irvine had one for the very same reasons. Looked good, drove great but most of all was a car on the edge.

The F-40. Lightweight supercar stripped off all necessities in a modern day supercar. Yet provoked Ferrari to build 3 times as many cars as intended. One of the most highly sought Ferraris by collectors.

The F-50. A failed attempt to get a car to share F-1 genes. Not many were ever found on the road. Yet its started to kindle interest among Journalists and collectors alike.

The Enzo. Ferrari's 2nd attempt at an F-1 road car is a success. 399 built and all pre-sold. Lights on the steering wheel to indicate your rpm, a paddle shift that begs to be shifted and that starter button right on top of the centre console that begs you to press. Tremendously fast with 660bhp.

So make your choice people. The ferrari of your dreams.

Revvmaster,
Why on earth do you come up with such difficult polls !!
anyway if it were for looks then it'd be a tough choice between 288GTO & F40 but I think the 288 GTO would win for me & for performance its Enzo hands down. I'm sorry but I can't seem to pick one of the two. It has got to be the both for me

I'm a diehard F40 fan. That car had a tremendous impact on my mind ever since I saw it. That's the one I'll take..... ahead of any other Ferrari!

A tough choice this. Being a total Ferrari nut its really difficult for me . Each one has its own virtues. But afte a lot of thinking I've made a choice.

It's the F40. The car is an absolute rage . Sure they made more than they had planned to.. what the heck. It had no creature comforts whatsoever . As JC said just 2 seats a petrol tank a steering and the engine.

And ohhh what and engine.. V8 with two turbos!! Man is that a delicious super car recipe or what!!!

And yes its also that extra special because it was last car to be commisioned by the man himself Enzo Ferrari before his death.

Last but not least because i have seen it in the flesh when I was a kid

The Ferrari 288 GTO. The only truly Italian muscle car. And one of the last Mr. Enzo Ferrari creations.

I can tell you the F40 has aged well... (it's still a good looker) Not so with the F50 and too early to say about the Enzo.

Enzo all the way. All the others are peanuts, compared to this one. It's got the perfect racing formula. Light car, big engine, naturally aspirated, high revving with a great aerodynamic package.

Exactly same here for me..i was suprised that i was the only one for sometime who had picked F50...F40 beautiful..but F50 improved upon it..and Enzo surely has improved but lacks somewhere in design i feel from the side..(just the side)

but i would have to say F50..i totaly love it..and feel till enzo becomes that legendary..F50 will remain on top..
