Ferrari 125 S
The very first car produced and built under the Ferrari name is the Ferrari 125 S The 125 S was the first vehicle to bear the Ferrari name when it debuted on May 11, 1947 at the Piacenza racing circuit.
It featured a V12, a trait it shared with most Ferrari cars of the following decades. The 125 S was replaced by the 159 S later in 1947.
The 125 S used a steel tube-frame chassis and had a double wishbone suspension with transverse leaf springs in front with a live axle in the rear. Hydraulic power drum brakes were front and rear. The 125 S was powered by a 1.5 L V12 with 118 bhp at 6,800 rpm. It was a single overhead camshaft design with 2 valves per cylinder and three double-choke Weber 30DCF carburetors.

Both of the two 125 S cars built in 1947 were dismantled, and their parts are thought to have been re-used. The 125 S won six of its fourteen races in 1947.

1948 Ferrari 166 Inter Spyder
Ferrari’s first customer model was the 166 Inter with Spider Corsa bodywork. These were built after the great success of Ferrari’s first major victory at the 1947 Gran Premio di Torino. These cars had removable fenders and lights so they could race in Forumula 2. 9 examples were built.

World's most Expensive Cars at Auction

1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti

2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Spider
The Ferrari LaFerrari Spider has been revealed ahead of its 2017 launch. Three images have been released, revealing the open-top hypercar's design changes.

The LaFerrari’s carbon fiber chassis has received modifications to maintain torsional strength. The hybrid system from the LaFerrari coupé mixes a naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 engine with an electric motor and battery pack for a combined 950bhp.
Sprint time from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) is expected below the 3-second mark, and an acceleration from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in just over 7 seconds.

Sources claim the limited edition LaFerrari Spider will cost a trifling €3.5 million ($3.89 million) before taxes.

Eric Clapton's Ferrari F40
Eric Clapton collects and customizes Ferraris almost like guitars, and now you can own one of his F40s. GVE London is an exotic car specialist that is selling a 1991 Ferrari F40 that passed through Clapton's collection.

The F40 featured a turbocharged 478-horsepower 2.9-liter V8. Ferrari built 1,311 examples of the car between 1987 and 1992. List price is a trifling $1.15 million, which might be a bargain for a sure-to-appreciate classic supercar.
The car debuted with a factory suggested retail price of approximately US$400,000 in 1987. The F40 was designed with aerodynamics in mind. For speed the car relied more on its shape than its power.

Best Investment Automobiles Hagerty is the largest insurance provider for vintage cars in the United States and knows its classic cars. Here are a few of Hagerty's top picks.
If you can get your hands on an Enzo it's only going to appreciate.
When Ferrari names a car after its founder you know it has to be something special. And the Enzo absolutely was. This carbon fiber supercar cost $659,430 new, but now it fetches more than $2 million. A total of 399 were built for sale and a 400th was built and donated to the Vatican to be auctioned off for charity. It made $6.05 million

A 6.0-liter V-12 provides 650 proud Italian horses. The car could hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and blast through the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds. Carbon ceramic brakes provided stopping power. Most of this is standard on supercars today, but it was groundbreaking stuff 14 years ago.

1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider by Scaglietti
In 1955 a new engineering team was formed by Ferrari for 1956. These highly skilled men soon came up with a new two-litre sports racing car: the 500 TR. This was the first Ferrari designated with the new name 'Testa Rossa'. The four-cylinder-engined type 500 TR was introduced in 1956 and was the successor to the 500 Mondial.
19 cars were produced. Less than twelve months after its introduction the 500 TRC was replaced by the 12-cylinder 250 Testa Rossa, which was produced in greater numbers. As the last four-cylinder sports racing car, the 500 TRC truly marked the end of an era at Ferrari.
This car was the 6th of 19 total cars. Chassis no. 0670 MDTR was sold new by the factory on 4 April, 1957. Since it was built, it has been owned by a succession of enthusiasts, the first two of which actively raced the car before the third owner and his family owned and maintained the car from 1966 to 1997 – more than three decades. The car sold for €2,800,000 in 2011.
