How Much Does A Ferrari Actually Cost?

Here's how much a ferrari actually cost.

By Jim Gorzelany,

There’s little question that Ferrari builds some of the most coveted sports cars on the planet. The company’s founder and namesake, Enzo Ferrari, began his automotive career in 1929 as a sponsor for amateur race car drivers, and 10 years later was put in charge of Alfa Romeo’s racing department. Ferrari left to produce his first racer, the Tipo 815, in 1940, with the first road car to wear the Prancing Horse badge – the V12-powered 125 S – debuting in 1947. Headquartered in the northern Italian town of Maranello, Ferrari is of the most successful brands in Formula One racing.

Coming wrapped in achingly gorgeous low-slung styling, Ferraris are as much rolling works of art as they are automobiles. Unfortunately, they're also priced like museum-grade artwork, with even the cheapest model cracking the $200,000 mark. And that’s before adding options, which are astronomically expensive. Buyers can customize their cars in any number of ways to suit their tastes, from colors and hide treatments to racing and track options and styling details that include a plethora of carbon fiber appointments.

Though the brand’s exceedingly affluent buyers are hardly price-sensitive, the rest of us who are forced to stare from behind the velvet ropes would still like to know what it takes to drive a Maranello-made model off the lot, you know, just in case. To that end, we did some digging and compiled pricing for Ferrari’s 2020 lineup in the above slideshow, noting base MSRPs and, were we able to find them, a sampling of option prices, which are quite steep in their own regard.

Ferrari Portofino

Base Price: $215,000

Named for a fishing village on the Italian Riviera, the picturesque Portofino is Ferrari’s “entry level" model. (If you consider a model that starts at over 200 grand as being entry level.) Coming with a retractable hardtop for four-season fun, the pert Portofino packs a 592-horsepower 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 engine that enables a jump to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. As a grand touring car, the Portofino is more graceful than brutal.

Portofino $215,000   NA

The usual suspects appear on the options list, and they are every bit as expensive here as they are elsewhere in the line. If you want the car painted in a “Ferrari historical color,” you’ll pay around $12,500, while the available Magneride dual-mode suspension costs nearly $5,600. A fire extinguisher costs over $1,000, and if you smoke, you’ll have to pay upwards of $800 for what amounts to an ashtray and lighter. Want a carbon fiber cup holder? It goes for around $2,500.

Ferrari Roma

Base Price: $225,000 (est.)

Expected sometime in 2020, the new Roma is a four-passenger grand touring coupe that’s said to be engineered with enough refinement and comfort to be used as a daily driver. It’s gracefully styled in the tradition of Ferraris from the 1950s and ‘60s, with a sharp nose and graceful curves running front to rear. It packs a 611-horsepower turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that should enable a 0-60 mph time at under 3.5 seconds.

Roma  $225,000 (estimated) NA

While we don’t have specifics on prices, Ferrari’s configurator shows the new Roma will offer an extensive choice of solid, metallic, and “classic” exterior colors with a choice of carbon fiber components. You can specify from among an assortment of wheel designs, brake caliper colors, and tailpipe treatments. Interior treatment choices are likewise extensive.

Ferrari F8 Tributo

Base Price: $276,550

New for 2020, the F8 Tributo is a gracefully cast two-seat coupe with an abundance of exterior curves and slashes that beg a closer look from every angle. It comes powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine it shares with the 488 Pista. It channels a healthy 710 horsepower through the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. With a throaty exhaust note, it can sprint from 0-60 seconds in a hair under three seconds.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

F8 Tributo $276,550    405,500+

As with other Ferrari models, the F8 Tributo can be customized to the max with an extensive selection of exterior colors and upholstery options, in addition to painted brake calipers at around $1,520, a carbon fiber engine cover at just shy of $8,000 and titanium exhaust pipes at around $2,500. You can also get the rev counter in either of five colors, pick between five different seating choices, and even specify titanium wheel bolts at around $1,700.

Ferrari F8 Spider

Base Price: $274,280

As the name would imply, the F8 Spider is the open-air alternative to the closed-roof F8 Tributo. Also wrapped in eye-catching styling, it features a power retractable hard top.

The F8 Spider is positioned as being “less extreme” than the 488 Pista Spider and sportier than the 488 Spider it replaces. It likewise comes powered by a mid-mounted 710-horsepower twin-turbo V8 with a seven-speed automatic driving the rear wheels.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

F8 Spider $274,280   NA

Option choices here are similar to the F8 Tributo, except that you can choose a black retractable top instead of a body-color roof.

Ferrari 488 Pista

Base Price: $330,000

Debuting last year, the 488 Pista – the name is Italian for "track" – is an outrageously styled rear-drive mid-engine street legal racer. Appropriately enough, it packs a rip-roaring twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 710 prancing horsepower (529 kilowatts) and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. A standard launch control function helps the Pista make the leap to 60 mph in a sudden 2.8 seconds.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

488 Pista $330,000   $620,000+

The options list on the Pista borders on the outrageous. Aside from the myriad carbon fiber trim pieces on the options list, your Pista can ride on lightweight carbon wheels for an extra $25,000. If you want a racing stripe slapped on the hood it costs a bit over $15,000, while something called a Personalization Pack is an incredible $36,300. As the Italians say, “mamma mia!”

Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

Base Price: 350,000

This is the open-air alternative to the hardtop version of the 488 Pista and it’s tweaked to deliver a notch better performance.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

488 Pista Spider $350,000   NA

While we don’t have specifics, as with the coupe, a heavy hand on the options list could nearly double the Pista Spider’s sticker price.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Base Price: $300,000

This uniquely styled Ferrari hatchback replaced the former FF in the lineup, and like that model it’s designed to seat four adults. As for performance, there’s plenty of it to go around thanks to a 680-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 engine that’s mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission.

Ferrari says it can leap off the line to hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and reach 208 mph. All-wheel drive and four-wheel steering help keep the car firmly planted to the pavement through the curves. This is about as close to a Ferrari SUV as it gets… so far.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

GTC4Lusso $300,000    $630,500+

As for options, there’s the usual custom paint and leather treatments, carbon fiber inserts galore, painted brake calipers, and on, and on, and on. Prices are, of course, crazy expensive. A panoramic sunroof, for instance, costs around $20,250. A triple-layer paint treatment is nearly $27,000.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso T

Base Price: $260,000

The GTC4Lusso T swaps out the standard version’s V12 engine for a V8 and employs rear-drive instead of all-wheel drive. The twin-turbocharged V8 puts a still-ferocious 602 horsepower to the pavement via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It’s good for a sprint to 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds, which is not too shabby for a four-passenger hatchback.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

GTC4Lusso T $260,000    NA

Options for the GTC4Lusso T are similar – and similarly expensive ­– to the V12-powered version. 

Ferrari 812 Superfast

Base Price: $380,000

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is a seductively styled grand touring car that backs up its immodest moniker with a riotous 789-horsepower V12 that can make the 0-60 mph run in just 2.8 seconds. And that’s without either turbocharging or supercharging. But as you can see, you’ll pay a hefty tariff to spend time with something this engaging and gorgeous.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

812 Superfast $335,000    $655,000+

Again, the options list makes for an entertaining read. Checking all the boxes can bump up the price by hundreds of thousands of dollars. There’s somewhere in the neighborhood of $50,000 worth or carbon fiber trim pieces alone up for grabs, for example. Apple CarPlay, which is included with many lesser cars, costs over $4,000 here. A matching golf bag, should you choose to play through, is priced at around $11,000.

Ferrari 812 GTS

Base Price: $380,000 (est.)

The new 812 GTS is the drop-top version of the 812 Superfast, and it marks the return of a front-engine V12 Spider to the Ferrari lineup. It’s also drop-dead gorgeous looking and can hit the 60 mph mark in around 2.8 ticks.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

812 GTS $380,000 (estimated)    NA

As with the 812 coupe, the GTS can be finished in an amazingly extensive choice of exterior colors, wheel designs, and interior leather treatments, along with high-cost add-ons like carbon fiber racing seats. 

Ferrari FS90 Stradale

Base Price: $625,000

The SF90 Stradale is the automaker’s first production plug-in hybrid sports car, and it’s a two-seater with all-wheel drive. It’s powered by a turbocharged V8 engine assisted by three electric motors (two in front and another at the rear). The combination enables the SF90 Stradale to boast the highest power output of any V8-equipped Ferrari to date, at an uncanny 986 horsepower.

Equipped with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it’s said to reach 60 mph in around 2.5 seconds. Unfortunately, it’s electric only range is a mere 15.5 miles, so don’t expect to breeze past the gas pumps (it’s rated at 18 mpg in combined city/highway driving). It’s also one good-looking coupe, with no shortage of exterior styling excess.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

Portofino $625,000    NA

While we don’t have information on option prices, add-ons include the usual assortment of painted brake calipers, wheel choices, interior colors, seat treatments, and a choice of titanium or black ceramic exhaust pipes. 

Ferrari Monza SP1/SP2

Base Price: $1,750,000

The frighteningly expensive Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 models are open-top speedsters with a postmodern profile reminiscent of Ferraris from motoring’s post-war age. There’s no windshield, rather a “virtual windshield”  that channels air around the cabin. This is said to enable uncluttered forward visibility and approaches that of a Formula One car.

They’re the first in a series of limited production “Icona” (icon, in English) models, with either model’s 499-unit output already spoken for among Ferrari’s most-loyal (and richest) customers. The SP1 is a one-seater, with a solid panel where the passenger’s seat in the two-passenger SP2 otherwise resides. A 799-horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine sits under a front-hinged one-piece carbon fiber hood and enables a 0-60 mph run in just under three seconds.

MSRP    Fully Loaded

Monza SP1 $1,750,000    NA

Monza SP2 $1,750,000    NA

At this price, why bother with options?
