The Ferrari Enzo is a tangible expression of the technological capacity in which the company has been able to better interpret the dreams of fans. True concentration of finesse design, drawn freely from red fireballs of Formula 1, this creation of the prancing horse is a real joy for the senses. Efficiency is its raison d’être and all the studies to make it were oriented to the purpose.
The result is a missile with a speed of over 350 km/h, which accelerates better than a military jet. The braking system, made from carbon-ceramic material, would be enough to stop even a train moving at its full speed in a few meters. Nothing is left to improvisation on the Enzo and everything, even the smallest detail, has a precise functional utility.
The style of the aggressive bodywork was developed with the aim to facilitate the sliding of the car in the air, while leveraging the flow of air in the car to generate downforce in such a load (775 kg to 300 km/h) to have the monster stuck in the asphalt. That is something that only the wizards of Maranello could succeed!
Then there’s the engine, the heart of this red one, all grit and passion, a perfect synthesis of power and torque; refined and technological, it’s the giver of Rossini‘s melodies and human passions. It is considered as an insignificant mass of finely crafted metal, but as a meteor that releases pure energy, proudly exhibited by each of its more than 660 horses, to give authentic emotions imbued with noble history to an audience of fans from the refined palate.
Its propeller is racy indeed, gentle and violent, one that would push a heavy Jumbo’s takeoff, yet compact and lightweight, as if to testify to the sophistication of its design. The Ferrari Enzo, with its surreal charm impresses everyone, even those who are accustomed to a utilitarian and flat view of life. The charm oozing from every bolt of this superb sports car captures anyone and makes you realise that, in this world there are still works capable of giving people strong feelings.
