A tribute: Presenting Enzo Ferrari
The name speaks for itself. This car is a tribute to the founder of Ferrariㅡ Enzo Ferrari.
The beastly machine is a 12 cylinder mid-engine berlinetta super speed racing machine.Manufactured keeping in mind Formula One technology such as Carbon-fibre body, hydraulic transmission etc., this car is simply one of a kind.
Moreover, this car also posseses features that are generally not allowed in F1, for instance active aerodynamics and traction control. As Enzo loved speed-racing more than anything else, this car is a sheer tribute to what he liked the mostㅡ speed, power, torque… A genius he was, hence the Ferrari, that we are so crazy about!
Enzo can speed up to 60 mph, i.e. 97 km/h in just 3.14 seconds. Moreover, the 100 mph mark is reached in just 6.6 seconds. Incredible as it seems, the top speed of this mean machine is noted to be 355 kilometers per hour, i.e. equivalent to 221 mph. In the United States, this car is rated at 12 miles per US gallon in the city and 18 miles per US gallon on the highway. Despite the power-packed performance and price of Enzo, the improved version of Ferrari’s F430 production carㅡ the Ferrari Scuderia 430 gave a tough competition by lapping the test track as quickly as Enzo did.
Well, after all it’s Ferrari we are talking about. Every now and then, they come up with some marvellous creations that are simply extraordinary. After all, the prancing horse stands tall, unbeatable and incomparable.
The Enzo was established to commemorate Ferrari’s first Formula one tittle of the new millennium. This car was designed by Ken Okuyama, the Japanese genius designer, former Pininfarina head designer. This car was first announced at the 2002 Paris motor show with a limited mass production restricted to a count of 349. The price of the car during the launch was USD 659,330. This car became really popular and all the 349 models were sold out pre-production. On demand, there were 50 more, increasing the count to a total of 399.
The car got featured in the movie Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, being driven by Demi Moore on a beach. The Enzo treaded above $1,000,00 at an auction.
