Italy has been super consistent in producing beautiful and exotic cars. We are going to take a look at some ultrarare Italian Supercars people would love to own..
There is no denying the fact that each nation’s auto industry is distinct and has the potential to intrigue and shape the global auto industry. Some of the greatest supercars in the world and possibly the most recognisable brands have come from the unmatched fusion of geographical, cultural, societal, and political factors. In fact, any dream garage would be highly suspect if it did not house at least one or two vehicles with Italian heritage. With their passion, charisma, unmatched quality, luxury, and exquisite styling, Italian supercars have the ability to captivate gearheads’ hearts like nothing else. These supercars exude the elusive X-factor and exotic mystique in addition to culture and lifestyle because of their scarcity and exclusivity. It would be difficult to compile a comprehensive ranking of the top Italian supercars, but it would be much simpler to identify the most exclusive models. In light of that, here is a list of some extremely rare Italian supercars that we would love to own.
10. Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
The Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is the ideal example of how vehicle design had advanced to an art form during the 1960s, which was the ideal playground for talented Italian designers and engineers. Between 1967 and 1969, Alfa Romeo produced the 33 Stradale, a supercar based on the popular Tipo 33 endurance racer. The Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale’s dramatic shape and nearly perfect proportions were the result of Scaglione’s impeccable sense of artistic design language, which was showcased in the small 18-unit production run. The 33 Stradale was a performance marvel in addition to being stunning, sporting the same hand-built 230hp 2.0L mid-mounted V8 as the Tipo 33 race car.
9. Lamborghini Veneno
The strong, audacious, and cutting-edge Veneno is a convincing illustration of Lamborghini’s technological and aesthetic evolution over the past 50 years. The ground-breaking design and unmatched technical features include a body and frame made entirely of carbon fibre. The Veneno has a mighty 6.5L V12 engine with 750hp that allows it to reach a top speed of 220.5mph and reach 60mph in 2.8 seconds. With only 13 examples produced—including a grey model on display at the Museum of Lamborghini Technologies, three Veneno Coupes, and nine Veneno Roadsters—the limited edition Veneno is one of the rarest Lamborghini models in the world.
8. Italdesign Zerouno
Since the 1960s, Italdesign has specialised in car design, but until the first ultra-limited Zerouno supercar, it has never entered the auto manufacturing industry. With the Zerouno, the Italdesign Automobili Speciali brand aimed to appeal to collectors and forward-thinking enthusiasts by fusing features and performance from racing with type-approval to drive on public roads. The Zerouno was created by Italdesign around a modular carbon fibre and aluminium chassis, extending the lightweight idea to have a carbon fiber-only body. There are only five examples of this one-of-a-kind supercar, which has a potent naturally aspirated 602hp 5.2L V10 engine.
7. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta
The Zonda HP Barchetta is a custom-built supercar that pays homage to the car that made Horacio Pagani an automotive legend by utilising Pagani’s cutting-edge design and sartorial craftsmanship. Horacio Pagani’s interpretation of a Zonda-based collector’s item is represented by the supercar, which explains the limited 3-unit special production run. Aside from the mind-blowing $15 million price tag, the Zonda HP Barchetta’s most eye-catching feature is its body. It has a wraparound windshield, smaller carbon-fiber rear wheel fairings, roof scoop, and wheels with contrasting paint jobs (silver and blue on each side). A 7.3L Mercedes-Benz AMG M120 V12 engine, with a 789hp and 627lb-ft of torque rating, was installed in the Zonda HP Barchetta by Pagani.
6. Pagani Huayra Tricolore
During the 60th anniversary of the Frecce Tricolori in 2020, Pagani created three examples of the Huayra Tricolore as a tribute to the Italian Air Force Aerobatic Team. Pagani designed the Huayra Tricolore with a more pronounced front splitter, a front bumper with side extractors, new air scoops, an optimised rear diffuser, and integrated wings and rear hoods after taking design cues from the Aermacchi MB-339A P.A.N aircraft. The Pilot tube, mounted centrally up front to measure an aircraft’s macroscopic airspeed and aerodynamic condition, is the most striking nod to the Aermacchi planes aside from the three-striped external livery. A Mercedes-AMG-exclusive 6.0L twin-turbocharged V12 engine with 840hp powers the Huayra Tricolore.
5. Ferrari F12 TRS
Ferrari has provided one-of-a-kind, coachbuilt supercars like the F12 TRS through its ultra-exclusive Special Projects programme for its most devoted customers. The client-requested F12 TRS is based on the F12 Berlinetta but takes design cues from the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. Only two examples are known to exist, which is not surprising. The Ferrari T-shaped graphic, which gives character to the F12 Berlinetta’s standard tail, is the most important design cue. Similar to the stock F12 Berlinetta, the F12 TRS’s 6.3L V12 engine produces 729hp, 508lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of over 211 mph.
4. Ferrari P4/5 By Pininfarina
The debatable V12 599GTB Fiorano and the eye-catching Maserati Birdcage concept were created by Jason Castriota and his colleagues at Pininfarina Special Projects. One of their greatest achievements is the Ferrari P4/5 without a doubt. The legendary Jim Glickenhaus commissioned the one-of-a-kind Ferrari supercar, also known as the Glickenhaus car. The Daytona 24-winning Ferrari P3/4 served as inspiration for the blank canvas project, which involved destroying a donor Ferrari Enzo and adding over 200 custom parts. However, Pininfarina did not simply re-body the Enzo; they made sure the P4/5 spent a lot of time in the wind tunnel and on the road to achieve the superb dynamics expected of a Ferrari. The 650hp 6.0L L Tipo F140 B V12 engine is a stock Enzo engine under the hood.
3. Lamborghini Aventador J
Lamborghini made a comeback with the Aventador J, one of the most uncompromising open sports cars, a year after the Aventador made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The front windshield and roof of the radically open supercar are removed, pushing the limits of what is legal for public roads. It is a first-rate technological showcase. The one-of-a-kind Aventador J is a work of automotive art that represents Lamborghini’s mastery of carbon-fiber technology through the extensively redesigned monocoque. A 6.5L L539 V12 engine producing 508lb-ft of torque at 5500rpm and 680hp at 8250rpm powers the vehicle.
2. Maserati MC12
Between 2004 and 2005, Maserati built the MC12 supercar, which was longer, wider, and slightly taller than the Ferrari Enzo. It featured a distinctive design for maximum downforce on all surfaces. The MC12 was a homologation special for the wildly successful GT1 racing version, despite criticism for its size and lack of a rear window. The Ferrari Enzo 6.0L V12 engine used in the MC12 has been slightly modified, and its output has been reduced to 624hp and 481lb-ft of torque at 7,500 rpm. Surprisingly, with a top speed of 205mph, the MC12 is still the fastest road-legal production car to carry the Three Trident badge. Maserati only produced 50 of those.
1. Touring Superleggera Aero 3
The retro Aero 3 supercar was built by Italian coachbuilders Touring Superleggera, paying homage to the alloy panel and unique tube construction of the 1930s racing cars. Only 15 of those were made. The completely custom Aero 3 is made of carbon fibre and adheres to Touring’s guiding principles of increasing aerodynamics and reducing weight. The massive shark fin out back of the Aero 3 must be considered its most eye-catching feature in addition to the teardrop shape, V-shaped grille, aggressive lines, protruding beltline, and vents that pay homage to Alfa Romeo’s past. This stunning, high-performance supercar has a 6.3L Ferrari F140 V12 under the hood that produces 740 horsepower and 509lb-ft of torque and has a top speed of 211 mph.
