Remember the Hyper 5 video series that pitted the most outrageous hypercars against each other? Well entrepreneur Alejandro Salomon has comeback quickly with another mind-blowing YouTube series.
This time around the Italian Prancing Horse is taking center stage as the footage has been entirely dedicated to the five generations of Ferrari supercar flagships. Nicknamed the ‘Ferrari’s Big 5’, this three part series has brought together the 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo, and LaFerrari. Yep, they’re also not being provided by Ferrari itself but rather the guy that has been nicknamed as the Ferrari Collector on the Internet (it’s not Guardians of the Galaxy’ Benicio del Toro) – famous car collector David S.K. Lee. The videos have all five models alive and well and meeting head on for a run on the race track – with the final video also depicting some American-style drag battles. We’re not going to spoil this marvelous videos but you should be in for quite a ride especially when the 288 GTO and the F40 or the Enzo and the F50 go against each other.
As a reminder, the 288 GTO has been manufactured between 1984 and 1987 and only 272 vehicles were made, with its brute force coming from the 2,855cc V8 twin-turbo longitudinally mounted engine – 400 hp (298 kW) and 366 lb-ft (496 Nm) of torque are qualified to give the 2,560 lbs (1,160 kg) supercar a jolt to 60 mph in just five seconds. At the other end of the scale sits the three decades later great-great nephew LaFerrari which uses a hybrid setup: 800 HP (588 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) and another 163 HP (120 kW) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) from the electric motor, for an unofficial 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in just 2.4 seconds.
