Are these correct for Ferrari?

It would be helpful to see an end picture of the base to get a better idea. From the picture you have, the base looks like the right era Fiamm horn for 60's Ferraris. The trumpets with the bend at the end don't look like any Ferrari horn I've seen. The only Ferrari trumpets I've seen have straight trumpets, but it's possible there was a Ferrari model that used those 90 degree horns.

It seems like your 90 degree horns would work and look better than the stock horns on a 330 GT (which has straight horns pointed down), but they wouldn't be "correct". I don't think the 90 degree horns would work as well or look appropriate in a GTE, because the bend would focus the sound toward the engine rather than forward. The horns would normally be tinted with transparent candy apple red, which there seems to be hint of inside the bell. I think the Fiamm T hose connector is usually black on Ferraris rather than white, but not absolutely positive.

White connectors are pretty common on Ferraris, but I have never seen an original set of horns with 90 degree trumpets.
