It takes a special Ferrari to be named after the immortal founder of the company, Enzo Ferrari. Successor to the wild F50, the Enzo is infused top to bottom with F1 kit, including shiftlights integrated on the top of the race-style steering wheel, carbon fiber shifter paddles, and the first-ever use of carbon-ceramic brakes on a Ferrari road car. In addition, the Enzo allows for nearly every facet of the performance envelope to be adjusted from the steering wheel. Of course, even the driver’s aids and massive brakes haven’t helped the Enzo avoid a number of high-profile crashes involving celebrities, inspiring one website to start a tongue-in-cheek “Save the Enzos” campaign. Thankfully, at least one has survived long enough to allow Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, to declare that the roar of the 6-liter V12 was like “the delicate sound of thunder.” That thundering new 48-valve motor is good for 650 horsepower and 485 pound-feet of twist, which is more than enough to take the Enzo to super-legal speeds: 60 mph takes just 3.3 seconds. Designed with a single purpose—to be the ultimate road car—the Enzo dispenses with anything that would detract from the driving experience. Power windows don’t help you go faster, so they’re not included. What you do get is a paddle-actuated automated sequential manual transmission, active aerodynamic aids, and of course that massive V12’s 8,000 RPM redline. Enzo would be proud.
The Ferrari Enzo Ferrari uses a new engine, codenamed F140 B. It is a 6.0L V12 based on the design of the Maserati Quattroporte's V8, using the same basic design and 104 mm (4.1 in) bore spacing. The engine produces 650 hp (485 kW) at 7,800 rpm and 485 ft·lb (658 N·m) of torque at 5,500 rpm, with the redline set at 8,200 rpm.
The Enzo Ferrari features a Formula One-esque electrohydraulic shift six-speed semi-automatic transmission, active aerodynamics (the first for a road-going Ferrari), and traction control, the latter two of which are banned in Formula One.
The Enzo Ferrari is capable of 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 3.14 seconds and a top speed of at least 217 mph (350 km/h).
Capable of generating a downforce of 7600 N (1700 lbf) and due to its lightweight chassis weighing less than 3100 lb (1406 kg), the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari is capable of executing corners well, when compared to cars with a similar rank. Its acceleration is decent; it actually takes the same time to do 0-60 mph as 60-100: 3.3 seconds. The Enzo's top speed also closely matches its real-life top speed, hitting 218 mph (351 km/h) in most games except Forza Horizon 3, where its top speed is now 225 mph (363 km/h). The Enzo mainly rivals the Ferrari F12berlinetta and Porsche Carrera GT.
When compared to the 488 GTB, the Enzo is slower on the track due to the 488 GTB using newer technology and having a more powerful twin-turbo V8 engine. In a one-mile drag race, though, the Enzo can catch up to the 488 GTB despite being slower at the start.
