    OK price aside let’s assume they are all the same price which modern Ferrari super car would you pick? You could only pick one.

    I was thinking about this earlier as I was spending the money I was hoping to win from the Powerball. I decided that it would probably be the F40 just an iconic gorgeous masterpiece!

    I would love the LaFerrari just worry about the potential battery issues.

    Agree F40 hands down. Been my dream car since its release and I finally saw my first one last September and got to sit in it. Fueled the fire even more and I'm planning to own one someday.

    There was a similar thread some time ago, with the exact same question.

    Anyway, I think that the results just show the age of the voters and the car they idolised as as a kid. Objectively, the newer car is the quicker and better one to drive.

    Enzo. Modern enough, but not too modern. Love the styling. Black all over.

    I never drove any of these cars, but I think they're already more considered as pieces of art rather than cars - therefore their qualities as "cars" are not really relevant.
    With this rationale I hesitated between the 288 GTO (as maybe the most "significant" for introducing the kind) and the F50 (for the V12); in the end it's the 288 GTO for me.

    Very tough choice. For me the F50 takes it, its a coupe and a spider which gives an extra element of special. Combine the screaming V12 with no roof and it just becomes a truly astonishing experience.

    Have seen it in person. Wasn't interested in driving it. My mate who drove it said it was an abomination.

    I'm not the least bit keen on the LaFerrari, but otherwise I like them all. But, I voted for the original one and what I think is one of the most beautiful cars of all time, the 288GTO. Next would be the F50. But again, they're all great.

    Curious for the reasons you don’t like the LaFerrari?

    From the list, the choice for me is the F50.
    I own an F40 and F50, and while the F40 is sensational, it was an evolution.
    The F50, however, remains to this day, IMO, the most uniquely engineered road-going Ferrari ever made. Put aside the engine and carbon tub etc. It is the only road-going Ferrari with a stressed-member chassis. Its importance in Ferrari's history can't be overstated.

    And, it is the end of the 3-pedal era of Ferrari Supercars, the last manual gearbox, the Grand Finale.

    That is not important to a European though. We drive manuals all our lives...

    I find it is equally important to my European clients as it it to those from elsewhere.

    Fair enough sir, but I believe that it is all about the scarcity value.

    If I may repeat myself, we all drive manuals in Europe since we get our driver's licence, at 17. My 70 year old dad, an ex semi-pro rally driver, knows how to drive with aplomb. I gave him my manual M3 the other day and he was heel and toeing like a pro. Then again, when he was heel and toeing his E-Type, I was just a lad...

    I have several client some of whom are Europeans who have collected just the 3-pedal Ferrari Supercars (GTO/F40/F50), they think they are special and represent a special bygone era, that the F50 is that last of that era means something to them.

    It's just comes off like the homely step-sister to the rest of them.

    this, it's no secret that the market carries a preference for manual ferraris

    That could be a cyclical fashion though - one of the reasons for the scarcity of manual 355, 360, F430 and 575 (not to mention the 599) is that when they were offered new "the market" was massively prefering the F1 equipped cars.
