What began as a carpenter’s son automobile business back in 1929 has now become a luxurious brand with superlative performance road tourers having more wins in the formula 1 than any other brand. Ferrari has some of the most stunning cars ever on the road. The brand has provided a consistent long list of very fast, powerful and stylish sports cars and supercars coveted by collectors more than any other marquee. With its upcoming IPO in October, fans will now be able to own one of the rides without having to dig deeper into their pockets. In honor of this, I have compiled a list of the top 10 Ferraris models.
