Ferrari

This Italian brand needs little introduction. The company was founded for the production of road cars in 1947 after gaining a strong reputation for racing cars. Late founder Enzo Ferrari was involved in the company up until 1988 when the Ferrari F40 was launched. Now with an official import presence via Ferrari Australasia, the brand's current line-up comprises V8- and V12-powered sports cars and GTs in the form of the 458 range, California, F12 and FF.

Ferrari 488 Spider review: Why bother with the coupe?

Alborz Fallah: When it comes down to it, if you happen to meet anyone that says the convertible 488 is a compromise, or that it’s not a real Ferrari, call them out for what they are – an idiot. Otherwise, if you want to daily a Ferrari, the Spider is the best way to go.

2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale review

I have had a few Ferraris over the years, starting with a second-hand Ferrari 360 Spider, then a new 360 Spider I specced to my own taste with the first carbon-fibre seats in Australia in a non-racing Ferrari. Then followed a new 599 GTB Fiorano, which neither I nor my wife liked...

Yet, journalists constantly regurgitate the same story about it being the car having flaws and Ferrari's (then) new CEO bagging its performance...

1979 Ferrari 308 Review

As a child I used to play with Matchbox cars. Probably my favourite would have been the Ferrari, which I now know was a 308 GTB. It was aggressive and confident; masculine yet feminine. It just stood out amongst all my other cars. So much so, in fact, that I've always identified myself as a Ferrari guy, as opposed to Lamborghini people, who grew up with Countach and Diablo posters adorning their bedroom walls...
