Richard Losee is no stranger to hard work. After crashing his precious Ferrari Enzo back in 2006, this driver took it upon himself to restore his ride and add even more bells and whistles making it debut ready in time for the Bonneville Speed Week. His vehicle went from a standard Enzo developing 651hp to a Twin-Turbo Ferrari Enzo delivering a tremendous 850hp! At Bonneville his hard work ended up paying off as his Enzo went on to establish a 238.142 mph Class C (360 cubic-inch) Blown Fuel Modified Sport category and Enzo top speed record with an average run of 237.81 mph. It didn’t happen on the first try though. Many attempts were made with bumps in the road, like a malfunctioning chute and improper tuning, before the Enzo finally completed the task it had gone there to achieve.

"I had to leave for the airport literally right when we made the run as I was headed for a race in Phoenix," said tuner Shane Tecklenburg. "I was changing the tune up while we were towing the car back to the pit and I left immediately afterward not really knowing if what I had done would be enough to get them there."

Now, Losee’s Ferrari Enzo not only holds the top speed record, but it also holds the record for the most driven (31,366 miles) Enzo ever. Nice job, Losee!

I’m speechless here. Why? It’s pretty obvious that a twin turbo will set a new record because of having that kind of speed will blown all cars who will dare to compete.

That’s definitely one great love for the Enzo. Imagine the cost of rebuilding and upgrading that car. Good thing that his work actually did pay off.

the Enzo slowed down to let the Cuda veer off the track out of control and continued on....

Twin turbo? Amazing, it seems it really run superbly. And Ferrari is popular though.

I read about this a week ago in my weekly Wheels section. Seemed awesome. And now sounds awesome today!

and then they entered the 1st turn where the Super Cuda displayed huge amounts of under steer and lost grip leaving the track....
