A little later today, I’m going to show you one of the most amazing and impressive classic V12-powered Ferrari models in existence. To whet your appetite, I’m going to show you six V12-powered Ferrari models, currently listed on Autotrader, that hail from the modern era — and not just any six V12-powered Ferrari models, but the six coolest V12 Ferraris currently listed for sale on Autotrader, according to me. Indeed, your average V12 Ferrari models are already pretty exciting, but these are a cut above. Enjoy.
2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta – $559,900
The Ferrari 550 Barchetta was a specialized open-roof version of the 550 Maranello coupe — and it’s a sought-after, limited vehicle created in a production run of just 448 cars. It’s beautiful, unique and special, but it has a problem: practicality. The Barchetta doesn’t have any kind of traditional roof — just an ill-fitting piece that takes time to install. Don’t get caught out in the rain in one of these. One way to ensure that never happens is by simply not driving your Barchetta at all, much like the prior owners of this car: it’s covered just 3,212 miles in 16 years, and it’s currently offered by Marshall Goldman Motors near Cleveland for $559,900.

2003 Ferrari Enzo – $3.1 Million
Yes, the Enzo — one of the ultimate V12 Ferrari models — is currently listed for sale on Autotrader. It’s offered by Boardwalk Ferrari in the Dallas area, and it’s available with an asking price of $3.1 million. That’s huge money, but then this is a special car: One of just a few hundred ever made, this Enzo has traveled a mere 2,749 miles from new — and it’s finished in the most desirable color combination of Rosso Corsa (Ferrari’s characteristic red) with a red interior. The Carfax report says this Enzo was sold new in Massachusetts before going to a second owner in Connecticut — and it’s clear neither owner drove it very far. Find a 2003 Ferrari Enzo for sale
2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica – $319,900
The Ferrari 575M Superamerica is one of my favorite modern Ferrari models. In addition to its beautiful lines, the 575M Superamerica boasts a power-operating roof, which is something the standard 575M Maranello always lacked. The roof on the Superamerica is a bit odd, as it folds completely upside down and lays flat behind the seats — but that quirk just makes this car even more special. With only 559 examples built, the Superamerica is tremendously uncommon — and this one is especially unusual, given its gorgeous dark red "Rosso Rubino" exterior color. It’s offered by Lamborghini Newport Beach with just over 12,000 miles for $319,900. Find a 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica for sale
2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti – $90,000
You might be wondering why this car made the list. After all, this is a list of the coolest V12-powered Ferrari models — all of which are limited-production models with huge price tags — and then there’s a run-of-the-mill gray 612 Scaglietti? Indeed, this car may not be as special as the others, but it’s on this list for one big reason: it’s a modern, V12-powered Ferrari with a clean history and a price tag of "just" $90,000. Of course, that’s still big money — but it’s a pretty good deal for 12 cylinders and a reasonably modern interior. For greater peace of mind, this 612 is also offered by an authorized Ferrari dealer: It’s available at Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo, a Ferrari dealer in Portland, Oregon, and it’s covered 31,493 miles since new.

2011 Ferrari 599 GTO – $659,952
The Ferrari 599 GTO was a high-performance version of Ferrari’s 599 GTB, which was sold from 2006 to 2012. The GTO, however, was only built for one model year (2011) and Ferrari claims they made just 599 units, with about 130 coming to the United States. This is one of those 130, and it’s offered by Ferrari of Denver with just 8,000 miles on the odometer — although that would be considered "high mileage" for one of these, as they’re normally tucked away and never driven. The asking price of $659,952 matches this car’s rarity and speaks to its desirable performance: the 599 GTO had an amazing 612 horsepower, leading to a 0-to-60 time of something like 3.1 seconds.

2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta – $1.6 Million
The Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is one of the rarest modern Ferrari models, as the automaker says that just 80 units were produced. It’s effectively a convertible version of the 599 GTB, since Ferrari never actually makes convertible versions of its front-engine, V12-powered vehicles — just limited-production versions like this and the 550 Barchetta and 575M Superamerica shown above. This one is offered by Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale with just 293 miles and an asking price of $1.6 million — a huge step up over its original sale price, which was probably around $400,000. But for the true Ferrari collector who wants one of everything, it might be worth the cost. Find a 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta for sale
