The vehicle is literally named "Enzo Ferrari", not "Ferrari Enzo" as would be more typical. For reasons of consistency, and to avoid conflict with the article on Enzo Ferrari, this article name was chosen.

The Enzo Ferrari is a 12-cylinder Ferrari supercar named after the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari. It was built in 2003 using Formula One technology, such as a carbon-fiber body, F1-style sequential shift transmission, and carbon-ceramic brake discs. Also used are technologies not allowed in F1. After maximum downforce is reached at 183 mph (295 km/h) it is reduced by computer.

The Enzo's V12 engine is the first of a new generation for Ferrari. It is based on the architecture of the V8 found in sister-company Maserati's Quattroporte, using the same basic architecture and 104 mm bore spacing. This design will replace the 50-year-old Dino-based V12 and V8 engines used in most other contemporary Ferraris. The 2005 F430 is the second Ferrari to get a version of this new powerplant.

The Enzo was intended as a street-legal racecar and as the sum of Ferrari's technological heritage; it was to date the fastest road car Ferrari had ever produced. The Enzo will be the base platform for the Maserati MC12, which will be both sold as a street car and driven at the 24 Hours of Le Mans auto race.

Production

The Enzo was initially announced with a limited production run of 349 units. The company sent invitations to existing customers, and all 349 cars were sold in this way before production began. Later, after numerous requests, Ferrari decided to build 50 more Enzos, bringing the total to 399.

In March 2005, Ferrari announced that it will build one additional Enzo, bringing the total to 400. This car will be auctioned by Sotheby's on June 28, 2005 to benefit survivors of the 2004 Tsunami. The car was ceremonially presented to Pope John Paul II on January 17, 2005, with the Pope then requesting that the car be auctioned off to benefit the Caritas charity. Sotheby's expects the car, chassis number 141920, to command 1 to 1.2 million euros (1.3 to 1.4 million US dollars).

Three prototype "mules" were built, M1, M2, and M3. Each was bodied to look like a 348, even though the mules were built in 2000. The third mule was offered for auction alongside the 400th Enzo in June, 2005.

Related developments

As a result of the Enzo, Ferrari have decided to use some of the technology developed for it in a small-scale program to get more feedback from certain customers for use in future car design as well as their racing program. The core of this program will be a car called the Ferrari FXX. It will be loosely based on the Enzo's design with a highly-tuned 6.2 liter version of the Enzo's engine putting out roughly 800 PS (789 hp/588 kW). The gearbox will be new as well the tires (custom-designed for this car by Bridgestone) and the brakes (developed by Brembo). In addition, the car is planned to be fitted with extensive data-recording and telemetry systems to allow Ferrari to record the car's behavior.

Like the Enzo, the car will be sold to specially selected existing clients of Ferrari only. Unlike the Enzo, the clients will not take delivery of the car themselves. Rather, it will be maintained by Ferrari and available for the client's use on various circuits as arranged by Ferrari and also during private track sessions. The car is not expected to be street-legal or suitable for road use.
