Powered by a 400bhp, 2.8-litre twin-turbo V8, the 288 GTO was capable of 190mph. Ferrari made 272.
Perhaps the most iconic of Ferrari's supercars, the F40 was launched in 1987 to mark forty years of Ferrari road cars. Its chassis was steel, but the body included composites and Kevlar. Combined with minimal equipment, that meant the F40 weighed just 1100kg dry.
It was powered by a development of the 288 GTO's engine, with capacity increased to 2.9 litres and power rising to 478bhp. The F40's uncompromising nature made it hugely covetable; so much so that Ferrari made 1315 after an initial planned production run of just 400.
Today, F40 values are rising, with good cars starting around £350,000.
Following the F40 as the firm's flagship hypercar, the F50 celebrated the 50th anniversary of Ferrari. It brought contemporary F1 technology to the road in the form of its carbonfibre bodyshell and a highly strung V12, which was integrated with the chassis.
That V12 was a 4.7-litre unit that revved to nearly 9000rpm and produced 512bhp and 347lb ft. Ferrari claimed a top speed of 202mph, passing 62mph in 3.8sec.
Today, the F50 is much rarer than its F40 predecessor – just 349 were made.
The first Ferrari hypercar of the 21st century, the Enzo was far more technologically advanced than those that preceded it. The styling was inspired by F1 racers, a paddleshift-operated manual was the only transmission option and the Enzo also saw the introduction of the manettino dial on the steering wheel. This is now a feature on all Ferrari road cars.
Again the Ferrari flagship was powered by a V12 engine which, in the Enzo, was six litres in capacity and capable of producing 650bhp and 484lb ft. A dry weight of 1255kg ensured ferocious acceleration; 0-62mph was blitzed in 3.6sec and Ferrari claimed a top speed of "over 217mph".
The 599XX Evo marked a return to track-focused, front-engined V12s like the 250 GTO. The Evo is in fact so hardcore that it isn't legal for road use. Customers can only unleash its 730bhp V12 on the track.
Ferrari claims its 47:53 front:rear weight distribution gave the 599XX Evo perfect balance, a point borne out when it claimed a lap record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Built as a reaction to the commerical success of the 288 GTO, Ferrari intended to race the GTO Evoluzione. However, the five cars produced never hit the track in anger and the Evoluzione remained a development car, influencing the F40.
The Evoluzione produced 650bhp and would hit a top speed of 225mph.
The F40 Competizione was built following a request from French team Michelotto to race the car at Le Mans. In fact, the first two cars built in 1989 were F40 LMs, with increased power, modified suspension and improved aerodynamics.
