A car that rightly deserves to be featured in every piece of literature written on Supercars. The Enzo takes the laws of physics and makes a mockery a out of it. It is by far one of the best Supercars ever built and recently after the entry of the 1000 bhp Bugatti Veyron, experts and journalists still rate it as the best.
‘Sport’, ‘Race’ and ‘Super’ are the modes the gearbox can be slotted into. The three words can also be used as adjectives to describe the car as a whole. Only 399 were ever built making this one very exclusive as well. This car shares a whole lot in common with a F1 car. The strong yet light monocoque weighs a mere 92 kg and is made of aluminium and carbon fiber. The 6.0 V12 all-aluminium engine mounted in the middle of the car develops no less than 660 bhp and 657 Nm of torque pushing the Enzo to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.2 seconds.
The Enzo’s engine is controlled by Bosch’s complex ECU, the ‘Bosch Motronic ME7’. The flappy paddles behind the steering give you complete control over the 6-speed Semi-Automatic gearbox which can upshift and downshift in a mere 150 milliseconds. Shift it into sport mode and it’ll take a lot lesser- 90 milliseconds!
The Enzo is cushioned by an independent suspension setup both at the rear and the front. Electronic dampers help in varying the stiffness of the ride. Another highlight of this car is the advanced steering wheel. Similar to the one found on F1 cars, the Enzo’s steering wheel has an array of LED’s indicating when to shift. One can also choose the gearbox setup, switch on or off traction control and control the indicators.
