3 Great Ferraris

Ferraris are the ultimate in sport cars.  For decades they have completely blown the doors off of the average sports car and continue to be crafted and engineered with the highest quality in mind.  For those that have loved not only the new Ferraris, but the classic Ferraris as well.  Here is a list of 3 of the great Ferraris that have been created over the years.  While not unanimously the best ever produced, these three Ferraris are just a few of the most extraordinary vehicles this great auto maker has produced.

62-64 250 GTO

The 250 GTO was an incredible vehicle.  Only 36 cars were created and in order to buy one, you first had to be pre-approved by Enzo Ferrari.  It should be noted that this baby cost a whopping $18K at the time.  Under the hood the 250 GTO had a 3 liter V 12 engine producing an inspiring 296 horsepower.  It also included a 5 speed manual and disc brakes.  These cars are so popular and today so rare that in 2008, one was auctioned off in England for 15.7 pounds.
