All Italian car brands
When a person has a super car that knows no speed limits on his mind, then Italy is surely where his thoughts are traveling to. Italy has always spoiled the car enthusiasts with thrilling cars that stood out with their speed, design and symphonic orchestra, as they call the sound of the engine. Italy has given the car industry lots of amazing cars and among them is Ferrari 66, which is one of the most expensive cars nowadays; last year it was sold for 36 million USD at an auction. Another one of those amazing cars is Lamborghini 20.
In order to experience the true joy of driving, one should take an Italian car and test it on the Italian roads. The memory will be simply unforgettable. When it comes to the cars, the true passion of Italians can be observed in everything. For example, on Lamborghini’s birthday they closed the streets of the whole city and held an event only for Lamborghini owners. There were about 6000 Lamborghinis of different years and makes. It was an exceptional show that many would kill to attend.
It is hard to think of a race in which Ferrari car did not take part. Ferrari can be distinguished for its sportish, yet super elegant design.
In 1929, Enzo Ferrari started “Scuderia Ferrari” (“Ferrari Stable”) to sponsor and manage racing drivers; at time, he managed over 40 drivers, most of them racing in Alfa Romeo cars.
Enzo Ferrari always had his mind set on creating premium sports cars, rather than vehicles for everyday life. He valued cars for their abilities in terms of speed, rather than comfort. His goal was always clear, to reach the maximum speed with his creations. In 2002, Ferrari produced Ferrari Enzo, 12 cylinder mid-engine berlinetta supercar, on the birthday of the companie’s founder. It has a V12 engine that is the first of a new generation for Ferrari. Ferrari has never stopped pleasing its fans and has been continuously filling the list of its remarkable cars. Here are our picks from the list: Ferrari 458, Ferrari Italia, Ferrari 599, Ferrari f40, Ferrari 360, Ferrari 430, and last, but definitely not the least, Ferrari FF (FF for four seats and four-wheel drive) – one of the fastest four seats cars in the world.
Lamborghini is a completely different brand from Ferrari, but for some reason they have always been looked upon as the competitors. Ferruccio Lamborghini was initially a founder of the truck brand, but his love for the cars made him transform his truck shop into one of the fastest car factories in the world. As a result, Lamborghini became one of the few brands that creates hyper cars. Lamborghini cars are famous for its aggressive designs and names that are inspired through corridas, bulls and fearless matadors. These names demonstrate the courageous nature of the brand. On its birthday, Lamborghini released Lamborghini Aventador Veneno, which is valued at no less than 4.6 million USD. There are only 9 models released so far.
The new make of Lamborghini, Huracan deserved a great appraisal among those who know a thing or two about the great cars. Even though Lamborghini SV Murcielago sports car is a rather desirable car for the collectors, the true success of the brand was due to Lamborghini Vanquish and Lamborghini Diablo. The duel between Ferrari and Lamborghini will never end (and let’s admit we are always eagerly waiting for the next step of the opponent), but it has to be mentioned that only after owning Ferrari did Feruccio Lamborghini decide to start his own car brand.
Another brand that releases awesome super, we could even say, hyper cars is Pagani. It was not long ago that Pagani appeared on the market, but that did not stop the company from climbing to the top in a very short time. Looking at the very first model of Pagani, you could clearly see what the brand was trying to portray. Formula One champion, Juan Manuel Fangio used to do some of the early engineering for Zonda. Later, Pagani wowed the crowd by releasing a special edition Zonda R, which unfortunately is not allowed on any track. Special permission is required to bring the car out, even on the race tracks. Zonda Huayra, named after Wayra Tata, which means “God of the winds”, is a true masterpiece of the modern engineering. Top Gear Magazine gave the title of “The Hypercar of the Year 2012” to the Huayra. It is also the fastest car that has covered the Top Gear Test Track. This hyper car uses a twin-turbo, V12 engine that was specially designed by Mercedes-AMG. What makes this car so different is that it incorporates active aerodynamics and is capable of adjusting the height of the front from the ground and autonomously operating four flaps located on both ends of the car. The production of Pagani Zonda came to an end in 2011. They did end the career with three stunning special edition cars though: the Zonda 760RS, Zonda 760LH and the Zonda 764 Passione.
Alfa Romeo has always been one of the most favorite brands of the car collectors. The brand is famous for its sophisticated designs and simplicity. Critics always thought that Alfa Romeo is a brand that will be remembered for ever. There also is a saying that many car enthusiasts share: if you have never owned one of Alfa Romeo cars, then you have not experienced the true love towards the car. It was originally said by Jeremy Clarkson, the founder of Top Gear, during one of his episodes. Some of the most remarkable cars of the brand include Alfa Romeo 4C and Alfa Romeo 8C. What makes Alfa Romeo so special is that the company gave its customers the opportunity to take part in the process of assembling their future cars. The owners can choose the design and engine based on their preferences. Of course, the price is not the same, but the extra cost is absolutely worth it.
