No, it's pretty much a new car that's based on the enzo. The combustion chambers are redesigned, the displacement was increased (probably from bore and stroke), and the exhaust was opened up, all along with a handful of other changes.
I would consider it a new car, mostly because they made new ones off the factory line.
As for the car of the year award, I believe it goes hnads down the the new STi or Evo. 4 doors, comfortable, 6 speed, 0-60 in 4.5, the quarter in low 13s, 4WD, cornering ability, autocross success, cheap tuning opportunities, only $30,000 MSRP, and enough trunk space to bring the groceries home.
Honestly, tell me one thing that the STi or Evo isn't good at....
(Besides top speed).
