The Ultimate Guide to the Ferrari Enzo

FERRARI ENZO – SO GOOD, IT BEARS THE FOUNDER’S NAME

Like its modern-day successor, the LaFerrari, when the Ferrari Enzo debuted, it blew the minds of just about anyone who drove or read about it. Brimming with technology pulled from F1 cars, its track performance was instantly legendary. In fact, the Enzo remains one of the 10 fastest Ferraris to ever complete a lap of the Fiorano circuit.

The star of the show is the big 6.0 litre, naturally-aspirated V12 producing 660 bhp and 657 Nm of torque. Match those numbers against a kerb weight of only 1480 kg, and the performance numbers are brisk, to say the least. Stay on the power and the car could reach over 217 mph and sounds absolutely incredible all the way there. 62 mph arrives in 3.65 seconds, with 100 mph coming in a mere 6.6 seconds. You could probably write a novel about all of the F1-inspured technical specifications on this car, so we will just cover the basics here. The Enzo featured the first production-car use of carbon brakes. Steering wheel controls dictated the suspension firmness, lifted the nose, and adjusted the throttle sensitivity. The 6-speed semi-automatic F1 transmission was shifted via carbon fibre paddles on the steering wheel. Inside, swathes of carbon fibre coat nearly every interior surface. Sure, some of these features might sound commonplace today, but in 2002 this was technology previously reserved for race cars.

All wasn’t roses, however, as the exterior styling of the Enzo failed to live up to the stunning performance numbers. No doubt styled more for aerodynamic perfection than for beauty contests, the Enzo appeared odd to some observers when it debuted in the early 2000s. The busy body lines and abrupt rake of the windscreen were common targets for critics. The styling seems to have aged well, but as you know, beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.

Compared to its predecessor, the F50, the Enzo proved to be a much more precise instrument, yet with more usability on the road.  All said and done, a total of 450 Enzos were produced; 399 initially, an extra 50 after Ferrari caved in to numerous requests from people who were unable to get their hands on one of the initial cars, and one more donated to the pope. Built in only red or yellow.
