The 1st, strange, road test...

Discussion in '2002 Ferrari Enzo' started by mafalda, Apr 1, 2003.

  1. Road test By Essais Auto (France)
    Top Speed
    353.74 Kph - 219.80 Mph

    0-100 Kph 3.71s
    0-200 Kph 8.60s (??)
    0-300 Kph 16.67s (????????????????????????????)

    1/4 Mile 11.15s
    1 Km 19.52s

    100 - 140 5th 4.16s
    100 - 140 6th 5.06s

    These performances are similar to the declarations of the factory ( over 217 Mph; 1/4 mile 11s, 1 Km 19.6s) except for 0-200 and 0-300, absolutely impossible!!

    I don't know guys, I don't know...

    P.S.
    Thanks to F40 LeMans

    OMG! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> That 0-200 figure is like a rocket.

    Where and when did they test it?

    Thanks, Pietro (+1!)

  7. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    Factory declairs 0-200 9.5s, and app. 0-280 19.5s

  8. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    may be 0-300 in 26.67s
    Mclaren do 0-320 in 28s
     
  9. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    Thanks, Mafalda! Perfect, as always. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  10. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    What are the figures for 0-200 and 0-300 for McLaren F1?
    If F1 makes 0-320 in 28 sex then Enzo must do 0-300 much quicker than 26.67 sec! Take ages for F1 to achieved these 20 km/h and Enzo must be quicker over 200 km/h than F1!
     
  11. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    no, the mclaren f1 accelerates faster and has less drag at high speed runs.
     
  12. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    0-300 Kph 16.67s for the Enzo, this is definately wrong, mabye 19.67 seconds, probably 20 seconds flat would be more realistic.

    The McLaren F1 racing the TRD Supra in the 1000 meter run passed the quarter mile in 11 seconds flat and rocketed past the 1km mark in 19.548 seconds at 276.41 km/h

    The McLaren F1 does 0-100km/h in 3.1 to 3.2 seconds
    0-160km/h or 100mph in 6.3 seconds

    The McLaren F1 is at least faster on any straight, Im quite sure of that too.
     
  13. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    0-200 Kph 9.4s
    0-300 Kph 23.4s

    For orange F1
    Surely 16.67s is not possible. I think F1 and Enzo are similar on straight: Enzo is more powerful but has an high CxS. The real diffirence, like a Formula1, is in the handling.

  14. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    Thanks to Mafalda for posting the Enzo test.
    The 0-300km time Essai Auto reported is clearly wrong, no doubt about it.
    Has anyone taken a look at any of Essai Auto's other tests to see if they are a reliable source of information?
    Regarding the Mclaren F1, the 0-200km times I've seen range from 9.4 to 8.8 and the 0-300km times range from 22.4 to 20.3. The slower times may not be that accurate as I believe they were converted to kph from Autocar's figures that were recorded in miles per hour.


     
  15. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    not sure if the mclaren would be faster to 200 and 300 at those speed aerodynamics play a big role and although the enzo has more drag it has downforce and so will still have a lot of grip, whereas with no downforce and a fair bit of lift the mclaren would start to lose grip. one test driver actually commented on the floating feeling of the mclaren at high speeds. as well they could have different gearing enabling better midrange(if u can call 200-300 midrange) acceleration. as well the ferrari would shift quicker. not sure these figures r right though, just offering information for conversation.

    still rather have the mclaren though
     
  16. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    If you check out test drives of the McLaren F1, which there are very few of, almost all of them mention "Too much power for the chassis" or something on the lines of that.
     
  17. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    F1's chassis is composite, but it is old, cannot compete against Enzo, and F1 has a little downforce: only 150 lbs @ 150 mph (Enzo has 757 lbs @ 124 mph!!). "Casually" some F1 have the "downforce pack", with rear wing...

  18. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    I say the test drivers were drunk.
    There's no way in hell a road car can do 0-200 in 8.6 secs!!!!!!!!

    But, if that's true, +1 for Mafalda.
     
  19. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    F Enzo what are u talking about the show is called "TOP GEAR" not "5th Gear"

    Your talking about my signature ..right...

    Cuz look ....before Jeremy Clackson and Tiff Needell were together in the Top Gear show....And now Tiff decided to make his own show ..5th Gear....And that sentence in my signature...was when Tiff Needell tested it on Fiorano....So it was 5th Gear

  21. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    thats right. the enzo is better in everyway than the mclaren f1 (except for 20mph extra topspeed that is pointless anyway)
     
  22. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    dam i love this car!
     
  23. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    under 9 seconds to 120 mph would be ridiculous. But just imagine if it actually does do that!
     
  24. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    More importantly how'd the SUPRA go?
     
  25. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    what tires were these tests done on???

    the batmobile could rival this...lol...j/k
