In 2002, Ferrari began production of the fastest road car they had ever made. Controversially named Enzo after the firm's legendary founder, this 650 bhp, 217 mph supercar was the fourth in a line of ultra-high performance Ferrari's. The Enzo weighed in at 1365 kg, a little heavier than Ferrari had hoped for but still light enough for 476 bhp per tonne.
A normally aspirated V-12 with an all-alloy block formed the heart of the Enzo's 6.0-litre motor and was the first of a new generation of Ferrari engines. With 5,998 cc it returned to a four-valve cylinder head and featured a variable-length induction system that extended the length of the induction pipes from 340 to 43 0mm via hydraulic actuators. Also new was variable inlet and exhaust valve timing that helped produce 650bhp at 7,800 rpm, more than any previous Ferrari production car.
Performance figures were very impressive, 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-125 mph in 9.5 second making the Enzo the fastest car in production between 2002 and 2004. The most obvious F1-derived detail was surely that raised nose flanked by a pair of radiators located ahead of each front wheel. These directed hot air through vents to the upper body, thus preventing it from merging with the underbody airflow that used fast air to generate even more downforce - as much as 775 kg at 186 mph! Complex under body active aerodynamics meant no need for a traditional large rear wing.
The cabin was a technological tour de force also, the most advanced of its day. A complex steering wheel housed controls for driving modes, traction control, a trip computer, reverse gear and wing angles, the upper rim incorporating five LED's that came on in 500 rpm instalments after 5,500 rpm. Ferrari states that only 399 (+1)Enzo’s were made between 2002 and 2004, all of which were completed in left-hand drive, the last car rolling off the production line in May 2004.
