Hooniverse Asks: What’s The Worst Thing Ferrari Has Ever Produced?


Ferrari is one of the world’s most venerated auto makers, so much so that its mystique is almost greater than the machines that helped create it. The company has a rich history, and many of its offerings, both those for the track and the street enter legend almost upon their inception.
That doesn’t mean the company hasn’t had the occasional swing and a miss. Of course, even those seem to eventually find favor and skyrocketing value. What we want to know today is your opinion on those misses. What do you think is the worst thing this great car maker has ever made?

      That looks like something a Hanna-Barbara character should be driving.

        The wheels wouldn’t look out of place on an early-90s Ranger or S10.

          They also look pretty similar to the wheels used on Jaguar D-types, ie from the days when wheels were engineered not styled

        Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Speciale, commissioned AND designed by an Italian nightclub owner and bodied by Piero Drogo (the guy behind the famous Ferrari Breadvan). The rear is possibly even worse :

      Can’t blame Ferrari for what a nightclub owner does to one of their cars

      Also available in the earlier less attractive package as the 208GT4, at least it had 170HP, but a top speed of only 137mph.

      In fairness 75bhp per litre wasn’t bad for 1980, pure Italian tax special.

    Don’t go here:

    But if you do, compare it to this: http://shop3.porsche.com/usa/

      To be fair the “united states” version of the store looks a lot better than the Norway version (Which is what pops up)

    Don’t get me wrong, the 500 Abarth is a charming little car, but charging £30,000 for a “Ferrari” one is taking the biscotti

    I was going to comment on saying I’d be glad to have the worst Ferrari made. But after seeing some of these examples I’ve changed my mind.

    Hard to say. They don’t seem to be done yet.

    Of all the production Ferraris until the California, I think the consensus is that it’s a toss up between the almost cynically bad 348, (worse in every single way than the much cheaper Honda/Acura NSX), and the related Mondial.
    The arrival of the NSX though did spur Ferrari into changing the 348 into the hugely improved 355. but there wasn’t much they could do with the Mondial except make a convertible version.

    But I would like a set of those wheels for my Lancia Gamma Coupe which shares the same pcd.
