With the one year anniversary of Ferrari's IPO in October, fans of the prancing horse can now own a piece of the automaker for about $50 a share instead of forking over hundreds of thousands of dollars for a piece of shiny Italian metal.
But for many, there's no substitute to the raw power and emotion of a living, breathing Ferrari. Since the company launched its road car business in 1947, it's reputation has grown from that of a respected racing team to a creator of automotive legends.
In fact, the company has managed to maintain a waiting list for many of its models without engaging in any forms of traditional advertising.
Other the years, Ferrari has been responsible for a long line of fast, powerful, and evocative sports cars and supercars. Anyone who has ever encountered a Ferrari has his or her personal favorite. Which is why Business Insider compiled a list of the 10 best Ferraris in the world.
166 Inter: Built from 1948 to 1950, the Ferrari 166 Inter was based on the company's successful 166 race cars. The model was Ferrari's first international sales success.
The 166 was powered by a 2.0-liter, 90-horsepower V12 engine.
250 TR Testarossa: The 1957 250 TR was one of the first Ferraris to carry the iconic Testarossa badge. Testarossa, or "red head," is a reference to the car's red painted engine head covers.
