The Enzo Tribute

42w ago


The Enzo Ferrari was built as tribute to the legendary creator and namesake of the brand, the late Enzo Ferrari.

I was extremely fortunate in being able to photograph this 2004 Enzo, as it had just that week been sold and was about to be shipped out.

Lambo Doors on a Ferrari seems a bit sacreligious or something :)

The Enzo has hard edges and lines, most unlike most modern Ferraris.

And the nose piece is certainly VERY different from anything else from Ferrari.

The headlights fit in with the other styling cues pretty well..

The short nose is more typical of the mid-engine V8 cars..

The boot and bonnet release levers (low and middle of the picture) are pretty much identical with Ferraris from the 90's!

Quite a bit going on in here!

Note the "Broomstick" holding the rear hatch up. That is included free with purchase of the car.

The Enzo Ferrari

Built from 2002 until 2004, 493 were made, although only 399 were planned.

Much Formula 1 technology was incorporated, including a carbon-fibre body, F1 style electrohydraulic transmission, and carbon fibre-reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes.

Some technology exceeded even Formula One, like active aerodynamics and traction control.

The Ferrari FXX was developed from the Enzo.

Power is from a 6 Litre V12, the Tipo F140B. It feature Variable Valve Timing, Dual Overhard Cams per Bank, and 4 valves per cylinder. Output is 651hp, delivered through a 6-speed transmission.

The Enzo runs 0-60mph in 3.14 seconds, can reach 100mph in 6.6 seconds and has a top speed of 221 mph.

The Enzo has been described as one of the "Fifty Ugliest Ferraris of the Past 50 Years" by Bloomberg, but widely lauded elsewhere.

The Enzo appeared in the Movies "Charlies Angels: Full Throttle" and "Redline"

Pretty?? Or pretty Ugly? What do you think?
