2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello

Ferrari re-established the front-engine layout with their 456, and then raised the bar even higher with the more spectacular supercar, the 550 Maranello, in 1996. When the world's press gathered at the Nurburgring to witness the unveiling of the car that replaced the F512M, many did not believe that a front-engine V-12 could out perform a mid-engine sports car. The results spoke greater than any press release, as the 550 Maranello proved quicker and far more practical.

The listed top speed by the factory was 199 mph, just 1 mph short of the exclusive group of road going cars that could reach 200 mph. It was, however, a vehicle that was more than just a supercar, as it offered its customers drivability, luxury, and comfort. It came equipped with full leather, air conditioning, and electric seats, windows and mirrors. There was a metal gearshift gate with a metal balled lever, and drilled pedals.

Zero-to-sixty was accomplished in just 4.3 seconds, with 100 mph taking just 10.2 seconds. The car had a drag coefficient of just Cd 0.33.
