Enzo Ferrari (automobile)

Enzo Ferrari engine.

The Enzo Ferrari is a 12 cylinder mid-engine berlinetta named after the company’s founder, Enzo Ferrari. [ 1 ] It was built in 2002 using Formula One technology, such as a carbon-fibre body, F1-style electrohydraulic shift transmission. and carbon fibre-reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes. Also used are technologies not allowed in F1 such as active aerodynamics and traction control. After a downforce of 7600 N (1700 lb f ) is reached at 300 km/h (186 mph) the rear wing is actuated by computer to maintain that downforce. [ citation needed ]

Production [ edit ]

The Enzo, named after the founder, was established to commemorate Ferrari’s first formula one title of the new millennium.

The Enzo was designed by Ken Okuyama. the Japanese former Pininfarina head designer, and initially announced at the 2002 Paris Motor Show with a limited production run of 349 and at US $659,330. The company sent invitations to existing customers, specifically, those who had previously bought the F40 and F50. All 349 cars were sold in this way before production began.

Later, after numerous requests, Ferrari decided to build 50 more Enzos, bringing the total to 399. Before being unveiled at the Paris Motor show, the Enzo (that was used in the show) was flown from Italy to California to be filmed in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle . It was driven on a beach by actress Demi Moore. After filming was complete, the Enzo was flown to France to be in the Motor Show. [ 2 ] Enzos are listed as being built in 2003. In 2004 a 400th Enzo was built and donated to the Vatican for charity, which was later sold at a Sotheby’s auction for $1.1 million. [ 3 ] [ 4 ]

The Enzo typically trades above $1,000,000 (£800,000) at auction. [ 5 ]

Three development mules were built, M1, M2, and M3. Each was bodied to look like a 348. even though the mules were built in 2000. The third mule was offered for auction alongside the 400th Enzo in June, 2005, bringing €195,500 (US$236,300). [ 6 ]

Engine [ edit ]

The Enzo is a mid-engined car with a 43.9/56.1 front/rear weight distribution. The engine is Ferrari’s F140 65° V12 with 4 valves per cylinder. dual overhead cams and variable valve timing. Bosch Motronic ME7 fuel injection is used and the engine is naturally aspirated. It displaces 5998 cc (366 in³) and produces 660 PS (485 kW; 651 hp) at 7800 rpm and 657 N·m (485 lb·ft) at 5500 rpm. [ 7 ] The redline is 8000 rpm. [ 8 ]

Chassis [ edit ]

The Enzo has a semi-automatic transmission (also known as the F1 gearbox) using paddles to control an automated shifting and clutch mechanism, with LED lights on the steering wheel telling the driver when to change gears. The gearbox has a shift time of just 150 milliseconds. The transmission was a first generation clutchless design from the late 1990s, and there have been complaints about its abrupt shifting. [ 7 ] [ 9 ]

The Enzo has 4 wheel independent suspension with push-rod actuated shock absorbers which can be adjusted from the cabin, complemented with anti-roll bars at the front and rear. [ 10 ]


The Enzo uses 19-inch (483 mm) wheels and has 15-inch (381 mm) Brembo disc brakes. The wheels are held by a single lug nut and fitted with Bridgestone Potenza Scuderia RE050A tires. [ 11 ]
