Good things really do come in three

Dutton Garage in Richmond, Victoria, currently has for sale three of the most iconic Prancing Horses ever to leave the factory in Maranello.

This holy trinity of Scuderia royalty are direct descendants of one another, and if Dutton could manage to get their hands on an F50, they’d have the whole collection.

First and arguably still the greatest Ferrari ever made, the Ferrari F40 is the very definition of a supercar, and for good reason.

You see, when it was released in 1987, the F40 was the first production car in the world that could top out at 200mp/h (322km/h), which is still an amazing feat, even today.

The enormous top speed was mainly a result of two things; the F40’s monstrous 2.9lt twin-turbocharged V8, which was officially rated at 352kW (471hp), and unofficially produced well over 500hp, and the cars very low kerb weight of 1369 kilograms.

The particular F40 at Duttons is a 1991 model and has an absurdly low 15,500 kilometres on the clock from new.

The Ferrari Enzo, not to be outdone by grandfather F40, is if anything, even more desirable, depending on whom you talk to.

There is no debate, however, that the Enzo, named after the company’s founder, is the definitive Supercar of the early 21 century.

Unlike the F40, the Enzo derived its power from a glorious, naturally aspirated, 6.0lt V12 that thumped out 485kW (651hp) and could send the Enzo to a top speed of 355km/h.

Also unlike the F40, the Enzo did away with a gated manual gearbox in favour of a single-clutch, six-speed semi-automatic gearbox that changed its gear via paddles mounted to the cars steering column.

Dutton’s Enzo is a lovely looking 2004 example finished in classic Rossa Corsa and it’s got a mere 14,000 on the odometer.

Last, but most certainly not least, the Ferrari LaFerrari (terrible name, we know) isn’t just a supercar, in fact it’s so fast that journos had to coin a new sub-genre simply to do justice to the car bonkers performance figures.

Yes, the LaFerrari most certainly is a Hypercar, and although its cut from the same ilk as its older brethren, it’s also hyper complicated compared to its predecessors.

For a start, the LaFerrari isn’t just powered by a monolithic, naturally aspirated, 6.3lt beast of a V12 that produces 588kW (789hp), no, the LaFerrari also derives power from an electric motor which produces 120kW (161hp).

This means that the hypercar has a scarcely believable combined power output of 708kW (950hp) and a top speed of over 350km/h.

The LaFerrari at Dutton is a beautiful 2014 model and it’s literally brand new and comes complete with its pre-delivery wrapping and a minuscule 170 kilometre on the odometer.

Duttons haven’t quoted a price on any of the uber-rare prancing horses, however, we’d hazard a guess that each one of the thoroughbreds would be worth well over $2,000,000.
