The Fastest Ferraris In the World

What is the fastest Ferrari? This could be one of the most commonly asked questions in the car community or, at the very least, among exotic car enthusiasts. There are so many ways to deal with this question, though. Is it fastest in terms of top speed or perhaps acceleration? Ferraris all excel in various metrics and vary so much depending on their intended purpose. One may have the highest top speed, but it won’t be the fastest to 60 mph or even 100 mph, while another might be very fast to 60 mph and can set lap records but can’t hit 200 mph. So, with all factors considered, here are the fastest Ferraris ever produced, ranked exclusively by their top speed.

1 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione – 249 MPH

In 2005, Ferrari announced the FXX – a high-performance track-only version of the Enzo. After a total of 30 units built, Ferrari followed that up with the FXX Evo – an improved version of the standard FXX. The model is powered by the same 6.2-liter V-12 engine, but it now delivers a total of 848 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque. The FXX Evo sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and can hit a top speed of 249 mph. Just like with the FXX, Ferrari also built only 30 FXX Evo units for selected clients in Europe. Michael Schumacher is the owner of the only black Ferrari FXX Evo ever made.

2 Ferrari Enzo – 218 mph

If a car was named after its founder, then 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 production-version Ferrari, with a top speed of 218 mph.

3 Ferrari LaFerrari – 217 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 third 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 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 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.

5 Ferrari F8 Tributo – 211 mph

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.

6 Ferrari 812 Superfast – 211 mph

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, 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.

The 488 Pista is a more capable version of the 488 GTB that arrived in 2018. It received mechanical and exterior modifications inspired by the 488 GTE and 488 Challenge that help it generate 20-percent more downforce than the 488 GTB, and also be a little bit faster.

In 2012, Ferrari unveiled the F12berlinetta as a replacement for the 599 Grand Tourer. When compared to the model it replaces, the F12berlinetta features a more powerful, more efficient, naturally aspirated, 6.3-liter V-12 engine. Its engine management system is fitted with Ferrari’s HELE start-stop system that helps reduce fuel consumption. As a result, the F12berlinetta is about 30-percent more fuel efficient than the 599. Its engine delivers a total of 730 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm. The F12berlinetta is a very fast car: it lapped the Fiorano test circuit in 1 minute, 23 seconds – two seconds faster than the Enzo.

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. With a top speed of 208, it is one of the fastest Ferraris ever made.

As a follow-up to 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).

14 Ferrari F50 – 202 mph

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 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. At the time, it was one of the fastest Ferraris ever made with a top speed of 202 mph.

15 Ferrari F40 – 201 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 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? This Ferrari’s top speed is rated at 201 mph.

16 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.

17 Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16M – 198 mph

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.


Q: What Is The Fastest Ferrari?

The fastest production Ferrari is the Enzo, which has a top speed of 218 mph. As for the fastest 0-60 mph time, the award goes to the SF90 Stradale, which has managed to go as low as two seconds to the mark.

Q: What Ferrari Has The Most Horsepower?

The most powerful Ferrari right now is the SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid. It puts 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.

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

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.

Q: 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.
