    No-one seems to mention this one, unless I missed it. Generally I am a 250 fan.

    1. 250 Mille Miglia Berlinetta
    https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo18/monterey/lots/r0163-1953-ferrari-250-mm-berlinetta-by-pinin-farina/701811

    2. Ferrari 365/400i/412...but only in the flesh. They don't photograph that well and usually appear in the ugly lists..but it is an important and woefully overlooked Ferrari being the last front engined Colombo V12 in the Enzo era. Plus he drove one. Plus it's elegant and not flashy. Was used as a safety car in various 1980s F1. Manual transmission need only apply.

    3. 250 SWB

    4. 250 Lusso

    5. 330 GTC

    Post # 3! :D

    Have to say, I am surprised that there is not so much love for the more modern F-cars thus far.
    Even those like the 458 Italia, which I would have thought would have garnered a good bit of admiration...T

    Different car. A very interesting one, but not the same one.

    That Spider looks like a one off as it is missing the buttresses. Certainly makes it look even better but not top 5 material yet

    That was such a fun thread to review. There have been soooooo many truly beautiful Ferrari's that it is a fool's task to pick five. I admit to having a special affection for the P4, as it was even a road car and was both gorgeous and effective. Also, I still like my first track day car, bought as a cool old used car that had just been replaced by the new Daytona. Yep, I know how lucky I was. That was a golden period.

    Very much in order:
    Dino GT – sui generis among automobiles, not to mention Ferraris
    275 GTS – the perfect blend of aggression and elegance from nose to tail
    Lusso – a vital link between 50s and 60s style
    288 GTO – delivers what the 308 GTB only suggests
    640 – as someone said, the last beautiful F1 car
