The new ultra-exclusive supercar from infamous Italian manufacturers Ferrari. Named after the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari, the Enzo is the culmination of all of Ferrari's technological, commerical and Formula 1 experience. Powering the Enzo is a completely new 6L 660bhp V12 that can move (more like teleport) the car from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds and to a top speed of 217mph. All I can say is damn. A seven-speed Formula 1 gearbox with an electrohydraulic clutch allows the driver to use paddles in the steering wheel to change gears. Also interesting is that all the vehicle control systems (engine, gearbox, suspension, ABS and aerodynamics) interact with each other to maximise vehicle performance and safety. So when you're putting pedal to the metal, the Ferrari Enzo's got your back.
However, all this technology, design and heritage certainly comes at a price. The US asking price of this beast is expected to be around US$670,000 and the production run will be limited to 349, with only 70 available for the US. Rumour has it that the car was only offered to long-time customers of Ferrari. Also, Australian fans take note that this car is not actually street legal in Australia as the power to weight ratio is too high. However, you can drive one in Project Gotham Racing 2 for the Xbox.
