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!
There are a few truly lucky people on the face of this earth; New York Hedge Fund manager Jim Glicknehaus is definitely one of them. He is such a big fan of the Ferrari 330 P3/4 racecars, that he shipped his Enzo back to Italy for a $4 Million makeover.
The complete overhaul of the 650 HP super car included a restyled body by Pininfarina, a new set of 20 inch rims and an interior picked out by his wife and daughter. The Italian automaker liked the 330 inspired Enzo so much, that they made it an official member of the prancing horse family.
Ever wonder why celebrities tend to stay away from the public? Well Jamiroquai front-man, Jay Kay, has a definite reason to stay in his room the next time he goes to a hotel. Kay was having a drink with some hotel staff, when an already drunk pastry chef started getting "aggressive" with Kay.
Kay ended his evening with the staff, and when he returned to his room later he found the chef, later identified as Aaron Billington, pelting his Ferrari Enzo with rocks. Billington was later arrested, and called his act a moment of "utter madness".
As much as we may appreciate Kay’s love for good cars, our advise to Billington is to next time just hit the man, and leave the innocent car alone.
After seeing the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe at McDonald’s , it now looks like another member of mega-rich may be looking to save some cash. This Ferrari Enzo taxi in the Middle East may be the perfect answer to the next time you’re late for a flight (as long as you have no luggage.)
In reality, no fare would ever be high enough to recoup the cost of this cab. This is just someone having some Photoshop fun.
Understatement can sometimes be a beautiful thing. This black-matte Ferrari Enzo was spotted at the Ferrari Racing Days held last weekend at the track at the Nürburgring in Germany. The car was flanked by its more traditional brothers painted in glossy factory red and black.
Although the owner is unknown, you can likely leave him (or her) a message directly on the car now that it has a chalkboard-like paint job. So is this a stealth beauty, or just the worst customized paint job since the golden Porsche ?
Yes we know is not a very successful replica, but after all it only costs $10,500! This Enzo replica is built on a 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT chasis and is powered by a V6 engine.
It has LED lamps front and rear, boyd wheels, 4-point safety harness system, factory AC, digital instrument panel, Lambo doors, and a tuned exhaust, beautifull competition paint, door poppers, AM-FM, CD player, and DVD player with a monitor.
Is not an Enzo, is true, but for $10.500 you will make heads turn!
Edo Competition today unveiled a new tuning kit for the powerful Ferrari Enzo .
The Edo Ferrari Enzo is powered by a V12 engine that now develops 700 hp thank to new exhaust headers, a high-flow catalytic converter, a performance muffler, a modified intake with ram-air system, high-flow air filters and an ECU recalibration.
It can hit a top speed of 230 mph and makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds.
If you have like €5,000 you can buy a Ferrari Enzo! Not a real one, that’s true, but a quite faithful replica.
This car is a replica based on a 1986 Pontiac Fiero. The engine cover might tell you it’s a V12, but you just get the normal V6. This engine is connected to an automatic gearbox, so you won’t get any “flippers” behind the steering wheel. Inside you’ll find a digital dash and the old Fiero seats. Some guy called Jim is the owner of this remarkable ride.
The Enzo is a real supercar, the lines, wonderful sound. When you see or hear the car you immediately know this must be a supercar. The color on this Enzo isn’t the usual Ferrari Red, this time “Corvette Red” has been used, something different. The upwards opening doors, F1 style nose, the brutal V12 with powerfilter that is just inches behind the red and grey seats.
