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 a Ferrari 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.
When we hear the world Gemballa thoughts of highly modified Porsche Cayennes and super tuned Carrera GTs, however it comes at no surprise that this Gundam winged Ferrari Enzo super car comes from the same stable as Tornados and Mirages. The Gemballa MIG-U1 will be limited to only 25 units, every single one of them being individually adjusted.
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.
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 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.
Edo competition has outdone themselves once again by modifying the most desirable of all the modern day super cars, the Ferrari Enzo. The Enzo XX Evolution is powered by a 6.3 Liter V12 that makes an earth shattering 860 HP and 575 lb-ft of torque. Weight has been reduced by 220 pounds and the Enzo can now sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 242 MPH while wearing an aerodynamically inspired body kit and a set of staggered 19 and 20 inch wheels.
When a person typically hears the words Ferrari, you tend to think of a very exotic sports car wearing the Scuderia’s signature Rosso Comtetizione red paint scheme, or perhaps even occasionally a yellow or black example. This is what makes this particular Ferrari Enzo super car stand out from the crowd, because underneath the factory paint scheme is a carbon fiber monocoque. This carbon clad Enzo was spotted in Maranello wearing a set of factory license plates, so it is curious as to why a few Ferrari employees were driving in the bare carbon fiber Enzo, especially since the super car has been out of production for quite some time now.
This is what makes the situation even stranger. What exactly is this Enzo looking vehicle and why is someone at Ferrari driving an Enzo with factory plates? Could this be a test mule for an ultra light weight future Enzo successor, or it simply part of the Italian automaker’s customer customization program, or are they just going out for a joy ride like in Feris Bueler’s Day Off. Either way we are posing a mountain of questions with no foreseeable conclusions in sight, so if you have any ideas, let us know by leaving a comment below.
The Ferrari Enzo is already a very exclusive and beautiful supercar. However with a little more help it can become something even more powerful and impressive. The tuners from Edo Competition have just come up with a new kit, inspired by the factory backed one make racing program, called XX.
Edo Competition’s performance package consists of a modified 6.3 Liter V12 built with new steel cylinder liners, titanium connecting rods, forged high compression pistons, titanium valve springs to deal with that extra lift from a set of more aggressive bump sticks and an improved oil squirter setup consisting of higher flowing pipes. The screaming V12 that once made 650 HP has now been tuned to to develop a maximum output of 800 HP at an astounding 8,500 RPM and 575 lb-ft of torque at a rather high 5,800 RPM.
This much added power in the Edo tuned Enzo XX means that the 60 MPH marker will come up in only 3.2 seconds from a standstill and push the wedged shaped Italian super car to a top speed of 236 MPH.
In a country where replicas are the standard way of life, you’d have to believe that the Chinese have already perfected the inexact science of taking the cloning of manufactured goods to new heights.
The Chinese are so good at this craft that no industry is safe from their experimenting hands. Naturally, that includes the auto industry where the Chinese have made replicas of Japanese and European cars and have done quite an impressive job with it – at least for the most part.
We say most part because despite their impressive hit rate, the Chinese have also had their fare share of misses, none of which was more brutal than their attempt at replicating a Ferrari Enzo.
For comparison purposes, were including a photo of a computer-generated image of what these guys were trying to go for. In the end, however, it seems fair to say that their version is a far cry from the original. To be completely honest, we have to warn all those Ferrari aficionados to get your stomachs ready before you see their version. To say that they bastardized it just might be the understatement of the century.
Before continue reading this post we have to warn you: if you suffer for a heart condition it is advised to go on to the next post. This video is guaranteed to make you feel bad! If just a few days ago you were astonished by the video of a burning Ferrari 612, today is time for a limited edition piece of history: a Ferrari Enzo was set ablaze in Okanagan Falls, BC.
The driver was behind the wheel of his supercar when the car caught on fire. Lucky for him, he was able to run out of the car before it was engulfed in flames, unfortunately he had to watch his baby destroyed by the fire!
It has been almost 5 years since the last of these celebratory prancing horses from the Italian stable rolled out of the workshop in Maranello, but we will never tire of seeing them. The Ferrari Enzo is undeniably one of the most beautiful and most desirable super cars in the world. If you wanted to hear how the 650 HP V12 sounds, check the video!
