Unveiled at the 2002 Paris Motor Show, the Ferrari Enzo was designed and dedicated to the brand’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, as well as to the company’s first Formula One title of the new millenium. Featuring ample F-1 technology, from the electro hydraulic shifting transmission, to the largely carbon fiber body and substructure, the Enzo incorporated responsive technology not allowed in F-1, such as dynamic aerodynamics and traction control.
The Enzo was sold out before it went into production as Ferrari offered it to select customers who had purchased F40s or F50s in the past. Overall, only 400 Ferrari Enzos were built. The final unit was built for the Vatican as a donation, and it sold for a price of $1.1 million at an auction shortly after.
Reflecting its purpose as a serious track day car and its origins, the interior of the Enzo is sparse, revealing carbon fiber floors and trimmed leather seats with just enough padding to absorb the road. Its powerplant, a 6.0 liter V12 producing produces 651 hp, red lines at 8,500 rpm. Reaching 60 mph from a standstill in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 221 mph, the Enzo appears not to have sacrificed much from its racing origins to become a proper road car.
Following the Enzo’s introduction, the Ferrari Enzo FXX was built as a far more powerful exploratory car. Combining some of the new technology that emerged from the Enzo, it explored new technology options for racing. With a version of the Enzo’s engine bored out to 6.3 liters and pumping out 790 hp and aerodynamic changes and modifications to the traction control system, the FXX is capable of achieving a top speed of 227 mph.
