Ferrari can arguably be credited with launching the concept of the modern supercar in the 1987 F40. Named to commemorate the company's 40th anniversary, the F40 was a high-tech brute with a beautiful exterior of carbon fiber and Kevlar and a Formula 1-inspired twin turbo V-8. That was followed in 1995 by the F50, which essentially reset the F40 formula; whereas the F40 was a road car incorporating F1 technology, the F50 was, as Ferrari marketing director Dr. Michele Scannavini declared, "an F1 car dressed as a road car."

Then the pace of development quickened; production of the F50 had barely wound down when Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezemolo began envisioning the next super-Ferrari. He landed on three key elements. First, the new car must be "really impressive", somewhat vague-sounding, but in the Ferrari context, a tantalizing prospect, to be sure. Next, it would challenge the company's technical expertise in every area, and third, it would be intimately tied to Ferrari's racing programs.

The result was the Enzo, the fastest, priciest and prettiest Ferrari produced to that time and the most advanced performance car in the world. It answered every one of di Montezemolo's criteria and more. In contrast to the F50's "not-quite-finished"-looking open body, the Enzo's envelope was a harmonious whole that represented a "quantum leap" in Pininfarina styling. At di Montezemolo's urging, Pininfarina chief designer Lorenzo Ramaciotti held a competition among his designers, focusing on aerodynamics and a more aggressive look than the F50 incorporating an obviously F1-inspired nose.

Of almost two dozen proposals, two were chosen to present to Ferrari management in 1998, but it took a third boundary-pushing design to arrive at the front end that would eventually grace the production Enzo. Ferrari then approved a final design, adding one last demand: the rear spoiler seen on all three proposals would have to go. Refinement in the wind tunnel accomplished the final goal, and the design was approved in early 2000.

By then the drivetrain and suspension were set. The Enzo's V-12 engine represented a new generation embodying Ferrari's contemporary F1 methodology. Displacing 6.0 liters, it used the 1995 F1's sophisticated variable-length induction, 4 valves per cylinder and Ferrari's first constantly variable exhaust-valve timing system to produce 660 HP. Bolted into a tubular steel subframe along with a 6-speed paddle-shift manual transmission, the engine shared room at the rear with adjustable double wishbone suspension using horizontally opposed pushrod coil springs with adaptive shock absorbers, a system also used up front. The Enzo's vented carbon ceramic disc brakes were the first on a Ferrari road car, and they were sensational, producing the shortest braking distances ever recorded and remaining fade-free in grueling testing.

A true technological marvel, the Enzo was the first car to have all its computer control systems - engine and transmission, suspension, traction control, brake force distribution and ABS – integrated to deliver optimum performance at all times. It also employed launch control that enabled 0-to-60 times of 3.3 seconds and an 11-second quarter mile run at 133 MPH, the best numbers recorded by Road & Track Magazine to that time.

Taken together, all those elements would normally describe an outstanding racing machine. In the Enzo, they constitute the most sensational Grand Touring machine of its era. Driver and companion are treated to an interior that recalls the original GTO in its Spartan simplicity while still being superbly comfortable for the long haul; there is even a set of fitted luggage in the car's F1-styled nose. An extremely low-production automobile capable of both heart-pounding performance and grand touring in high style, the Enzo set a whole new standard in the exclusive world of the supercar. One of just 399 built, this U.S.-specification 2003 Ferrari Enzo is one of only four finished in Nero and is offered with Ferrari Classiche certification.
