SUPER ENZO seen testing at Fiorano

EXTEREMELY interesting .... seems that Ferrari has been playing around with a modified Enzo , no longer in production at their test track...

http://www.autoweek.com/news.cms?newsId=102367





the car apparently was spittin fire out the exhaust

all indications towards a more powerful engine in the Enzo body... road testing for the next-gen Ferrari super-engines????????

May sound ridiculous but this may be their "Challenge" model of the Enzo, track only opposed to the "Tame" street-legal enzo.

both wrong, those pictures were stolen from a poster on FerrariChat.com. That car is actually a car made for a customer that wants to race it in the FIA chapionship races. The rumors have been floating around for a long time that they will be making a GT version of the ENZO, but only time will tell.

If the demand is great enough, I can see Ferrari contemplating an Enzo for the track. Porsche has the GT3 RS, Dodge has the Competition Coupe and Ferrari already has the 360 Challenge. They could amp it up with an Enzo Challenge.

actually the 360 Challenge is not ment for conventional racing. The 360 Challenge is more of a gentlemans race done between challenge drivers. The 360 GT which is a really supped up 360 Challenge and the 575GTC, a full carbon fiber bodied race Maranello, are the one that races with the C5R the Competition coupes and the GT3 RS. The maserati MC12 was based off of the enzo and is now run in the FIA and ALMS tournoments, maybe ferrari will bust one out also, but the last time they did something to that stature was with the 333 SP in the mid 1990s

I like the Enzo, but I guess it all depends what one likes. F430 is a very nice as well, even thou I like the older 360 Modena for some reason better.

the Enzo is not a "conventionally attractive car" , but I disagree that it is ugly.. those inlets up front give it a lil fishface look, bit other than that, it is one of the most beautiful thing on 4 wheels...

the 430 and 360 are just plain purdy
