Watch Four Ferrari Supercars Take on Fiorano

Dario Benuzzi drives the Ferrari F40, F50, Enzo, and LaFerrari

Originally designed to replace the Ferrari 288 GTO in FIA Group B racing, the Ferrari F40 became the Italian automaker’s first supercar after the race series was disbanded in the late 1980s. The F40 set a precedent and there have been three more Ferrari supercars since. In this new video, Ferrari test driver Dario Benuzzi drives all four Ferrari supercars.

Driving the supercars in succession, Benuzzi talks about each car's individual strengths and what each car meant for the brand in its day. Benuzzi first hits the track in the F40 followed by the F50, Enzo, and the LaFerrari hybrid. The F40 was the last car approved by Enzo Ferrari.

The Ferrari F40 is powered by a 471-hp twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-8 mated to a five-speed manual transmission. From there, the Ferrari F50 packs a 513-hp 4.7-liter V-12 mated to a six-speed manual, while the Ferrari Enzo features a 651-hp 6.0-liter V-12 mated to a six-speed automated manual transmission. Finally, the Ferrari LaFerrari is the automaker’s first hybrid. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 making 789 hp combined with a 161-hp electric motor. Total power is rated 950 hp. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

At the end of the video, all four Ferrari supercars can be seen driving together on track. Benuzzi has been with Ferrari as a test driver since 1969 and had a hand in the development of each of the supercars.
