Ferrari Enzo

Ferrari Enzo

In a recent interview, Amedeo Felisa offered new details on the next Ferrari Enzo , known as the F70 . According to Felisa, the new Enzo will be launched in 2012 and will be powered by a a direct-injection twin-turbo V8 engine.

He also said that Ferrari will only use carbon fiber for very special models and not for its entire line-up: "We will only use carbonfibre on very special cars which have a very low rate of production and which are not for everyday use, such as the new Enzo." This statement reflects a different opinion than we are used to seeing considering McLaren , Mercedes , and BMW are using, or plan to use, carbon fiber in their vehicles. Obviously, Ferrari isn’t one to just go with the pack on anything. Just a couple of days ago, we brought forth news that Ferrari does not intend on breaking tradition and moving towards a four-door vehicle , so it shouldn’t surprise us that this situation isn’t any different. Ferrari has a very successful mind of their own.

"The fact is that nobody today has a real understanding of what happens if you damage a carbonfibre structure," says Felisa. "After 20 or 30 years of use, who knows what state a carbonfibre structure will be in? Only the airplane industry has a long-term understanding of using carbonfibre, and there the usage is very different. Unless you have a really big accident, it is possible to repair a Ferrari today, and we don’t want to lose that."

So, should Ferrari go with the pack and use carbon fiber or do they bring up a valid concern for its usage? Hit us up with your thoughts.

Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat SpA, has finally announced details of Fiat’s aggressive five-year plan today and, we have to admit, we are very excited about them. We are not going to prolong the information with a lot of fancy talk about the history or expectations of these new models because we don’t have to. Forget the potatoes, salads, and other side dishes, here’s the beef: a new Enzo in 2012, an open-top Spider variant of the 458 Italia due in 2011, a 458 Scuderia in 2013, a V12-powered 612 Scaglietti, a new 599, and a facelift version for the California. That’s, count ’em, six new cars before 2013. Ahhh, we love the smell of new car in the air.

The new Enzo will be powered by a direct-injection twin-turbo V8 or a direct-injection twin-turbo V6. It will also feature Ferrari’s new-generation aerodynamic technology, including ‘active aerodynamics’ that pump air out through the body to influence the way air flows over and under the skin. Details on the other models have not yet been revealed, but updates will come as soon as those details have emerged.

Not only is Ferrari working on new models, but Maserati is also currently working on a sub-Quattroporte sedan that will compete with models like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series . Following that is this little tidbit; a new Quattroporte is also said to be in the works.

In yet another soggy tale of a petulant supercar owner, we bring you this heartbreaking video of how washing and cleaning a Ferrari Enzo can go wrong. So horribly wrong.

The scene of the mishap occurred during a Ferrari day - apparently, they have those on that part of the world - at Padborg Park in Denmark. One of the cars that made an appearance was this Ferrari Enzo, which was spotted at a local car wash.

The owner of the Enzo was washing it down with a hose and then proceeded to dry the car with a microfiber cloth with sand.

Wait a second...sand? He’s going to use sand on an Enzo?

The answer, regrettably, was yes. The owner, genius that he is, used sand to dry out the Enzo. We have no idea what would possess him to do such a thing, but he did. We don’t know that thought even crossed his mind, but it did.

We’re not going to blame you if you don’t watch the video. Trust us, it’s very painful to watch. Then again, curiosity is a funny thing; the more you don’t want to, the more you end up doing so.

Gemballa has definitely made a name for itself when it comes to tuning a remarkable vehicle like the Porsche Carrera GT or the Porsche 970 Panamera . In fact, they have been doing so for the past 27 years and will probably continue to do so for another 27 more. What is absolutely remarkable about this company is not its ability to tune a Porsche —we know they can do that—it’s their ability to do anything else on top of it. Take, for example, this Gemballa MIG-U1 based Ferrari Enzo . This car is currently on sale on Jameslist.com by The Car Experience. It has a gasoline-powered V12 engine with a semi-automatic gearbox producing 700hp. It makes the 0-60 sprint in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 218mph. Only 25 of these super-tuned, highly erotic vehicles were produced, each with a unique individualized style.

The Gemballa MIG-U1 based Ferrari Enzo features a front skirt that has a spoiler lip adding 77lbs of additional downforce, door extensions to the diffuser and rear spoiler, a rear flap that lowers itself at speeds of 75mph, and an optional electro-hydraulic height adjustment that can lift the car up by 1.7 inches is available. The car that is currently on sale is white with a red and black interior and only has about 13 miles on it. The price is only available upon request, but after taking a look around, we found Ferrari Enzos at a price range of $1.1-1.8million (US). Of course, those weren’t tuned by Gemballa.

This video is not for the weak of heart and for the sake of our sanity and well-being, let us all hope that something like this never happens again.

To be honest, this is probably the most excruciating 30-second video we’ve ever seen featuring a Ferrari Enzo , and the super car wasn’t even involved in a car crash. What you’re about to see is something that we strongly and vehemently advise any of you who happens to have a Ferrari Enzo to not, under any circumstances, try this at home.

Put it this way: when you’re trying to put a car that’s as rare and expensive as a Ferrari Enzo inside a trailer, please make sure you have enough space to do so.

Sure, the driver was able to safely bring the Enzo inside the trailer, but if you see the wiggle room – or lack thereof - he had to work with, it probably didn’t even have an inch to spare. A Ferrari fanatic with a weaker heart would’ve probably fainted at the mere sight of this.

When it comes about making your car unique we have seen all kinds of strange ideas. We have seen pink cars, funny tuned car and so on. And while for most of us aFerrari Enzo is for sure an unique car that is just perfect as it is, this person (the one that own the supercar) decided he needed more. A Golden Enzo.

For us is just a very, very bad idea. You still prefer a standard, red Enzo. We just hope he will not see his supercar stolen, as it happened with the Golden Porsche in Russia.

The Gemballa MIG-U1 will be limited to only 25 units, every single one of them being individually adjusted.

Gemballa MIG-U1

Gemballa is remaining a bit tight lipped about the specifics surrounding the MIG U1 and won’t reveal any of the tuned super car’s official details until the invitation only launch in Dubai. The kit looks like it started as a take on Ferrari’s FXX program and then morphed into something more reminiscent of a stealth bomber with its pronounced wing and assortment of scoops all covered in a coat of Championship White. On the inside, the Enzo’s business only attitude has been given a bit of a plush makeover with special quilted red Alcantara covering the seats, steering wheel and interior trim as well as an in dash LCD screen to control the MIG’s in car entertainment system. Once again the German tuner has shown us their ability to take an already attractive high performance machine and completely transform it into something unrecognizably out of this world.

Updated 01/14/10: Thanks to an optimized engine management and a specially tuned exhaust system, the 6.5 Liter Ferrari V12 now develops a maximum output of 700 HP. Meanwhile Gemballa revealed all the highly modified Enzo’s possible exterior colors. Check out the gallery to see them all.

Press release after the jump.

If you happen to have an extra $800,000 burning a hole in your pocket from Christmas we have an idea for you. How about a one of a kind 2010 Ferrari Ferrari Enzo Spyder prototype. The FXX inspired open air roadster was designed by the Greek automotive artisan Mr Papanagnou Dimitris and is currently up for sale on the internet auction house eBay. The very special Enzo interpretation has undergone various stages of construction that included everything from designing the one off titanium alloy tube chassis to laying the extensive amount of carbon fiber that makes up the monocoque before adorning the prototype with all sorts of touches from Maranello like the projector headlamps and adjustable winglets trailing at the tops of the rear fenders. As it comes from Athens, the Enzo spyder is powered by an Audi sourced 3.7 Liter V8 that can be ordered in a host of output levels. Stage one delivers a total of 300 HP, stage two goes up to 550 HP while the last and final stage brings power up to a truly super car competitive 900 HP, all coupled to an all wheel drive automatic drive train. At the moment the prototype is in its final stages of production with minor details like paint and upholstery being left up to the highest bidder.

Its the ultimate battle between an Italian thoroughbred and an American powerhouse.

On one corner, you have the Ferrari Enzo and on the other corner is the LMC Super Cuda. There are no lightweights here gentlemen.

Ok, it wasn’t so much a race between the two as it was a demonstration as to just how fast and powerful these two bad boys are. In the quick instance where they did put the pedal to the metal, the Super Cuda easily pulled away from the Enzo before a technical malfunction which came as a result of going too fast - forced the Super Cuda to a grounding halt.

As soon as it was fixed, the two then decided to see which car could post the higher topspeed and this time, the Enzo outgunned the the Super Cuda 218 to 208 mph.
