Ferrari – it is a name, and it is an experience. For car enthusiasts, Ferrari represents more than just a superior sports car brand — it represents a chosen lifestyle. Each type of Ferrari has a distinct personality, and every driver chooses a model to represent their true inner self – it is that personal.
You could spend countless hours going over the different models Ferrari has released in the last 60 years to determine the exact model that matches your personality. However, most of these vintage cars are hoarded by collectors and the chance of ever driving one, or even seeing one outside of a collector’s showroom, are very slim. So why waste time on that endeavor? Ferrari is about the now-experience.
To find out the answer to the real question now: which Ferrari is the perfect match for your personality?
The Ferrari 488 represents the fundamental spirit of the Ferrari race car line. The 488 is wide and low to the ground. It is aerodynamically perfect in every way. It has all the right curves in all the right places to make it look sexy, fast and dominating, all at once. And all of these features set on top of the perfect twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
The Ferrari 488 has a mid-rear engine placement. With just the touch of a button, the 661 horsepower engine roars to life, and the driver can feel the power surge through the car. When you feel that power of the engine throughout your whole body, it feels like you have become one with the Ferrari 488.
The cockpit of the 488 is designed to give the race car feel. It is comfortable, but there is little extra room. The seating pod hugs your body and keeps it in place while you drive, much like that of a race car. Everything that the driver needs to enhance the driving experience is located on or around the steering wheel, so you never have to take your eyes off of the road or become distracted from the driving experience.
For over 50 years, Ferrari has had a “California” model of car. The latest model is the California T, and it is possibly the best of this line. The California T has been designed to appeal to the everyday driver. It is a super sports car that has been designed to run more fuel-efficient than other models, all while retaining the sports car feel.
The California T is designed to have smooth curves for a more sensual appearance while still being aerodynamically superior. It has a turbocharged V-8 engine capable of 553 horsepower that is mounted as a front-mid engine. The California T was designed for the quietly confident personality that wants the world to know they are awesome but does not need to say it out loud.
The California T has everything that you could desire in the cockpit, including handcrafted Italian leather seats that hug your body the moment that you sit down. Everything is located on the steering wheel, including the controls for the infotainment system. Ferrari is all about the experience, and the California T experience is about comfort, convenience, and style.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast is the newest member of the Ferrari family. Introduced at the 2017 car show, the 812 has been an immediate hit with car enthusiasts. The 812 Superfast can only be described as the “bad boy” of the Ferrari line.
The 812 Superfast has the sensual body style that is very similar to the California T., but appearances can be deceiving. Although this looks like a car meant for touring the streets of LA, it is a car built for speed. The 812 “Superfast” was not given that name just because it sounds cool.
The 812 Superfast has a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that is capable of 789 horsepower. This engine is an upgraded version of the Ferrari Berlinetta engine and has been classified as the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine ever designed. From the minute you turn on this engine, you become addicted to the sound and the feel of the car. The 812 Superfast can quickly become an addiction for any car enthusiast.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast is designed for drivers who want to keep their wild side under wraps. It has the touring body style while hiding a powerful race car engine underneath. It is all about appearances. The 812 is the perfect match for those who like to keep people intrigued.
The GTC4 Lusso is a Ferrari designed for the person who likes to travel with their friends. This Ferrari is designed to seat four people while still retaining the sporty and sexy look of a Ferrari.
Do not let the four seats in the Lusso confuse you about the power and speed of this vehicle. The Lusso has a V-12 engine that is capable of 680 horsepower and is complemented by an all-wheel-drive system. This Ferrari looks like a sports car but handles like an SUV.
The GTC4 Lusso was introduced in 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show and has been in high demand since its release. It is a novelty to have a four-seater Ferrari that is also capable of performing like one of its sportier models, like the 488 or the California T.

The interiors are handcrafted just like the other Ferraris, and even when you are traveling with your group of friends, you know that you are traveling in style.
