Ferrari has already announced that they are working on a successor for the Enzo supercar. Now, they have also announced that it will be launched in 2012 and will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine.
Of the 400 built, six Enzos have been totaled. At a million dollars a car.
At those prices, accident statistics become interesting to the Wall Street Journal.
Published as an on-line article, the Journal followed up on some rather information from the California Highway Patrol. According to the Patrol, the number of accidents involving Aston Martins, Bentleys, Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Maserati’s and Lotus’s (Loti?) rose last year to a (...) > Full story
When you drive a supercar, and more, when you drive a million dollar supercar, your worries on the road are bigger than anyone else. And when you get hit by a bus… when then you get really angry. This is what happened in UK, where a businessman driving his Enzo was hit by a bus that was being driven too fast when it rounded a bend on the wrong side of the road and collided with his car. The Enzo driver’s sues the bus company for more than £300,000.

Here is some more footage to the famous Ferrari Enzo crash:
Want to know what it like to see your Ferrari Enzo valued at 1 and a half million dollars crashed by some unexperienced spoiled actor (Eddie Griffin)that has no business driving such a vehicle without getting the proper training?
Ask the owner of the movie Enzo named Daniel Sadek. It his comments with Fox 29 news, Mr Sadek keeps his cool and reacts the way he should. He states "that he is has happy that Griffin was ok" and that his feels bad for his Enzo. Without cameras on him, Im sure he was really angered. I guess you won’t see Sadek lending out his exotics to anyone anymore. Good thing there is plenty of footage of this for insurance purposes!
Also let this be a lesson people when you have rare car don’t just let some random driver step into your prized rare possesion.
Another Enzo crash but now is all on tape. Not a multi-billionaire maybe just a millionaire and not a business man but a actor form the next road trip / cannonball movie Red Line. Eddie Griffin takes the Enzo Ferrari of the Producer of his new movie, Redline for a test drive, and the consequences are obvious. The short test drive, (a drive in circle) demands to much know-how from the star, and the results are catastrophically. A poor Enzo of 1,5Millions $ is damaged seriously. If you wish to enjoy the RedLine you should try to avoid this short movie. Question; where can a movie-star be good at driving a Ferrari? Only in a movie!
Fifth Gear had the opportunity to test two of the best supercars in the world. Both of the cars have their pros and cons, but overall they are amazing, if we can believe Tiff that is. The exterior of these cars is perfect craftsmanship, but once your inside, the car is totally different; it’s more like a race car, than a luxury supercar. It seems that the Bugatti Veyron is one of the only ones that is both luxurious and sporty.
The Enzo Ferrari has been unveiled as the world’s most iconic supercar. The legendary $800.000 model, of which only a few hundred were ever built, topped a definitive list of the 100 most iconic contemporary cars that money can buy.
The Zurich Iconic Car Index, founded by former Top Gear presenter, Peter Burgess, was based on a sophisticated formula which weighted factors including price, performance, engine power and marque.
