Classics Of The Future

LaFerrari, 2013


LaFerrari The ultimate Ferrari, and some would say it was the ultimate hypercar, of its era. Together with the Porsche 918 Spider and McLaren P1, LaFerrari marked the arrival of hybrid powertrain technology in supercars, delivering 789 bhp from its 6.3-liter, V12 engine and adding a further 161 bhp from an electric motor, with all the drive going to the rear through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission. Only 499 were built between 2013 and 2015, and you had to be a long-standing Ferrari customer even to be invited to buy one.

Engine6,262 cc, V12
Top speed217 mph (348 km/h)

The ultimate Ferrari—at least until the next ultimate Ferrari—combined a V12 and electric motor for exhilarating performance

Ferrari 458 Speciale A, 2015


458 Speciale A The last of the V8-powered 458 family, and of Ferrari’s “mainstream” naturally aspirated cars, the Speciale might one day come to be regarded as the last “old school” car from Maranello. The 4.5-liter engine revved to a spine-tingling 9,000 rpm and generates 597 bhp, giving extraordinary performance: 0-60 mph 0-96 km/h) in three seconds and the top speed nudging 200 mph (322 km/h). The Speciale A adds a retractable hard top and was built as a limited edition of just 499 cars.

Engine4,499 cc, V8
Top speed199 mph (320 km/h)

The naturally aspirated engine of the 458 offered a thrilling performance. The folding roof added a further touch of glamour to the car’s striking looks.
