In 2002 Ferrari introduced the Enzo a supercar named after the company’s founder Enzo Ferrari. The Enzo was based on Ferrari’s F1 race car and featured many cutting-edge technologies including a carbon-fiber body an F1-style sequential shift gearbox and an advanced traction control system. Only 399 Enzos were ever made and each one was hand-assembled by a team of Ferrari’s best technicians.
The Enzo was originally designed to be a limited-edition race-bred supercar. But despite its track-focused pedigree the Enzo was also surprisingly comfortable and livable on the road.
Thanks to its 6.0-liter V12 engine the Enzo could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. But its true performance potential was unleashed on the racetrack where Enzo’s F1-derived technology made it a true handful to drive.
Despite its rarity and performance potential the Enzo was not without its critics. Some complained that the car’s stiff suspension and race-bred tires made it too uncomfortable for daily driving.
Others griped about the Enzo’s lack of luggage space and its finicky F1-style gearbox. But for those lucky enough to own one the Enzo was an unforgettable supercar.
