t is unquestionable that Italy is still world famous worldwide for its sophisticated, stylish and unpredictable designs. A heritage of genius, technology, artisan and industrial production that despite the crisis and the Japanese and German
competition, it still to this day leads in Formula One circuits, as well as in the rich sports car markets. Nowhere else in the world is there a concentration of brands that stay at this level. Let’s take a look at our top 10.

Ferrari F12 berLinetta The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a two-seater three-door coupe produced by Maranello with a front and rear-wheel drive engine which was replaced from the 599 GTB Fiorano. Sure, it costs more than a house, but the metal-melting aria from that incredibly operatic engine—priceless. The F12berlinetta is everything you could want from an Italian supercar. Power comes from a 730-hp 6.3-liter V-12, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with rear-wheel drive. Even with all that power, the F12berlinetta is one of Ferrari’s more comfortable cars, making it a true daily-driver. For the ultimate, there’s the F12tdf, with 769 hp and downforce-improving aero add-ons.
Ferrari LaFerrari The heir to Ferrari Enzo could only be the Ferrari LaFerrari. This real “monster” on four wheels is characterised by a complex hybrid system capable of delivering a total power of 963 hp and 900 Nm of torque. This, together with technical solutions taken directly from Formula 1 translates into performance nothing short of unimaginable.
Ferrari 458 SpeciaLe The radical and improved version of this supercar is that it practically is built to perfection. Perhaps that is why the Ferrari 458 Speciale is so demanded by having knocked the Maranello factory. Characterized by a naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine, the most powerful ever built at Ferrari, is able to make achieve 605 horsepower at its top end.
Lamborghini aVentador Lp700 Thanks to a V12 capable of producing 700 hp and 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, the Lamborghini Aventador is able to go from 0 to 100 in 2.9 seconds. It is a direct evolution of the Murcielago and the name, as usual, comes from the name of a fighting bull. With its performance and a futuristic style characterised by doors with vertical opening and strong, decisive lines, it is able to enter the hearts of fans.
Lamborghini huracan Lp610 The supercar destined to replace the famous and successful Gallardo is a muscular and sporty technologic car with a 5.2-liter V10 engine and Carbon chassis. The Huracan offers three different driving modes, activated by pressing the switch on the steering wheel: street, sport and race. Activating one of these, the car’s systems undergo changes, the reactivity of the gearbox to the engine sound, adapting to the method chosen by the pilot. The seven-speed dualclutch automatic with rear-wheel drive, makes 571 hp and with all-wheel drive it produces 610 hp.
Masarati aLFieri concept The concept is named Alfieri Maserati, mechanic of “Isotta Fraschini” that, in 1914, founded with his brothers Ettore and Ernesto the “Società Anonima Officine Alfieri Maserati”. Alfieri pays homage to the centenary of the Italian builder and at the same time wants to be a design manifesto for the Maserati in the coming years. This car, an evolution of the GranTurismo MC Stradale with which it shares its chassis, has a very powerful V8 engine that sends 460 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed automated manual gearbox and a limited-slip rear differential. A good braking is ensured by the carbon-ceramic brake discs pinched by Brembo brake calipers.
Pagani huayra 730 S Perhaps stylistically is the most beautiful car ever built by Pagani, the quality of materials used is very high and each piece that comes off the assembly line is virtually unique. The Pagani Huayra boasts an AMG-derived V12 engine capable of delivering an output of 730 hp and 1.000 Nm of torque. And it is certainly the most exclusive supercars, more exciting, more fun to drive, that there has ever been.
Zonda reVoLucion A supercar in every way, pretty much a Formula 1 car with license plate and lights. The powerful V12 engine, provided by AMG is the same adopted on the Zonda R, but boosted up to 800 hp and develop a maximum of 730 Nm. This masterpiece of aerodynamics, is very light, weighing just 1070 kg, which, together with the fast six-speed sequential gearbox (one hundredth of a second for the transition from one ratio) and carbon-ceramic brakes, made lighter by 15% compared to the Zonda R allowing the Revolution to compete on par with any F1 car.
Mazzanti eVantra It is a super sporty two-seater sports car with central engine, which will be produced in only 5 specimens each year. Its engine is a V8 with 701 hp power. The Mazzanti Evantra has a line that mixes elements of the coaches of Years 50 and 60 with advanced design solutions. The design is signed by Hungarian Zsolt Tarnok and the same Luca Mazzanti, owner of the brand. To move this silhouette attacked on the asphalt is a 7-liter naturally aspirated V8 capable of delivering 701 hp at 6,600 rpm and 848 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. The maximum speed is 350 km / h with a 0-100 km / h in 3
