Ferrari Opens Limited Edition Cars Exhibit

These rare beauties get a well-deserved tribute

Ferrari has opened a new exhibit at its museum in Maranello. Called "Ferrari Supercar. Technology. Design. Myth." The exhibit includes limited-edition Ferrari's old and new. Opened by Chairman Luca di Montezemolo, the exhibit consists of classics like the 250 GTO, 1984 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo. Meanwhile, another exhibit will showcase Formula 1 cars that inspired cars like the GTO Evoluzione, F40 Competizione, 599XX and FXX. All we know is the new exhibits should prove a popular vacation destination for Ferraristi over the summer.

250 GTO: Produced from 1962 to 1964, it's recognized as possibly the most famous Ferrari of all time, not only successful on the road, but on the track as well. With only 36 cars built, the car with its 2953cc V12 engine is now worth more than $20 million.

1984 GTO: Built to run in "Group B", by the time the road-going twin-turbo V8-engined 308 was unveiled, Group B racing was banned. Even with its racing aspirations abandoned, the 308 GTO surpassed expectations and production exceeded the 200 planned vehicle by 72 units.

F40: Following the successful footsteps of the 1984 GTO, the F40 reached impossible heights with a top speed of 201mph thanks to its 478hp twin-turbo engine. Although 400 vehicles were planned, its popularity pushed the number up to 1315 over its five-year production run.

F50: Built to honor 50 years of excellence, the car was unveiled at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show with a carbon-fiber body and V12 engine. That same level of enthusiasm exists today for the 349 cars produced.

Enzo: Developed with F1 styling, the lightweight V12-powered car was the first to use a Manettino selector located on the steering wheel, enabling the driver to adjust the handling depending on use and road conditions. The system was developed with Michael Schumacher, who was known to change car setup in every turn. These techniques helped to develop the modern F1 steering wheel.
