The Enzo

Am I the only one that isn't completely obsessed with the Ferrari Enzo? I mean, it's probably a great car, but whenever you mention cars, the Enzo is brought up. People who don't know shit about cars think they know everything about that V12 wonder. Why do people fawn over it so much?

i admit its a great car, theres no doubt about that. still, the looks are awfull, im sorry. i dont care if they help out greatly the aerodynamicy of the vehicle, but its still too damn ugly. next up, the cost compared to other super cars and comparing performance..... i think its too expensive.... n its like a formula 1 car, it begs to be driven fast (not something for daily driving). in fact, the car doesnt even have ABS just cuz ferrari wanted the fastest street production car title.


hence why i love the koenigsegg cc so much..... that body..... that removeable hardtop.... that power.... the handling... luxury features.... new scissor door style doors.... DAMN! its just a great car.... hell.... it even has ABS ffs.

Ferrari is a popular brand and an icon of motorsport (F1). One of their trademarks are the red color (Colore Rosso Di Ferrari). Kid's simply love Ferraris.

We're not saying it's a bad car. God, it's the fastest thing on the road! It's just people without any knowledge at all about cars overreact over the Enzo.

Because its a rare commodity. Contrary to popular belief, the most knowledgeble car enthuisiast knows two rats asses about the car compared to one of the few hundereds of people who own it. Its extremly rare, theres no real documentation of his performance, and its a Ferrari. The fact that we know so little about the car makes everone want to know everything about it.

On a further note, whomever said the Enzo is pricey should seriously get a boot in the mouth. If you're rich enough to afford a supercar, price is not an option. I'm most definetly certain a few more $100,000 won't make or brake some richs persons bank account. Hell why they are at it lets see if they can get a private jet for 1.2 million instead of 1.5 million. Stupid

The Enzo is not the fastest car on the road. It shouldn't even be called a car, nor should it even be on the road. It should be called a race car, a stock car. Too fast for the road.

I'd much rather cruise around in a Carrera GT.

After seeing the Enzo in person, I have to admit I like it much better than in pictures. I still find it much more attractive than the F50, but I prefer the F40 over either of them. I do like the Carrera GT over teh F50, as well, but it's only on par with the Enzo, to me.

Doesn't matter. if I had the money for an Enzo, I'd probably buy an F40 and a new Ford GT, And a '67 Jag XKE convertible for a daily driver... with money left over...

I personally like the rough grand-grand father of the Enzo, the 288 GTO. It's a V8 Biturbo with an incredible sound - a "muscle car" made in Italy. No car did impress me more than this (I don't know why) - just In My very own Opinion.
