Twin-turbo Ferrari Enzo drops by the Bonneville Salt Flats

Only days after we talked about this mammoth piece of machinery, the twin-turbo Ferrari Enzo finally made its way to the Bonneville Salt Flats where, predictably, it turned quite a favorable number of heads as it made a couple of test runs.

If you remember, this particular Enzo actually crashed a few years ago while it was participating in a rally. Not content in seeing his pride and joy go to waste, the car’s owner, Richard Losee, decided to make the most of a bad thing and completely restore his supercar back to its former road-pouncing capabilities. Actually, Losee did more than just restore his Enzo; he went as far as upgrading the car’s already loaded specs, turning it from a 652 horsepower thoroughbred into an 850 horsepower rocket.

With the Enzo now fully-restored and blasting from all cylinders – 12, actually – Losee went out and brought to the annual Bonneville Speed Week to show off just how far a wrecked supercar can go from a heap into something more powerful than its original incarnation. Sure, it helps to have loads of money to spare, but as evidenced by the twin-turbo Enzo’s run at Bonneville, money shouldn’t be an issue if the car can blast off from the starting block as fast as this supercar did at Bonneville.

Be cool to see them use a twin turbo like the GTO and F40. With the new Lambo making 670hp, I hear a 700 hp Ferrari chancing it soon.

There was also an update to the original article that stated that he was in fact closer to 200mph at the time of the accident.

Repaired the original V8 block? Somehow, I doubt that they repaired the original block by cutting off 4 cylinders.

Since this isn’t an actual production model, I’d still say that the XJ220 is the fastest Jaguar...

I’d love to see Ferrari get back to its roots and make tiny little V12s. Do you all realize that the first Ferraris had a miniscule V12 of something like 2.0 liters displacement?
Who says that when you make a smaller displacement engine it has to lose cylinders?

Yeah you should be loaded with money to buy this one.

Awsome! Go Richard Go Speed Racer!
