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

    I think that the 0-60 and 1/4 mile are wrong, ferrari and some other magazine like autoworold or soemthing like that tested 0-60 at 3.16 and the 1/4 in 10.8 seconds, but everything else about it sounds just right, except the top speed, its gotta do like 225MPH or over, cept that its the best car in my mind that you can buy
     

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


    Motor Trend and Auto Week got a 3.1 sec 0-60 time :).
    Top speed according to Ferrari is 217.5 mph. All I have read besides that was by a French magazine that got 219.8 mph, impressive. As far as 1/4 mile times....I have read three 11.1 sec times and one 11.2 sec time.

    This car is QUICK.
     
  3. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    ya, i read that they got a 1/4 of 10.8, the 217.5 MPH that ferrari said was and estimate, 217.5 is the cars minimum speed. Or something like that
     

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


    That 10.8 was a estimate, the track they were on wasn't long enough for a full 1/4 mile run. Ferrari said top speed is 217.5 mph, there has only been one top speed test that I know of besides that, and they got 219.8 mph.
     
  5. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    i can believe that thats an estimate but the 217.5 wasn't a test, it was an estimate of what the minimum top speed is, it was just to show that the speed's in that ball park
     

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


    Yes and no, it is not considered a "minimum" Ferrari simply says 217.5 mph. But as I said one test has already gotten 219.8 mph.
     
  7. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    bull the enzo has a higher top speed than that!!!!and the o-200 is true
     

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


    I agree, I think there is more there. Ferrari says 217.5 mph. So far only one has actaully been tested, and it went to 219.8 mph, damn fast if you ask me!!!!
     
  9. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    I dont know why people test the top speed of a ferrari enzo when its electronically limited to 217 mph <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> so why bother when u will enver pass 350km/h maybe just for the thrill of it but yeah if you removed the limitation i asure u the car would pass over 370km/h, and for another thing Viper 800TT or what ever the #$%# it is a twin turbo 800 horsepower car it has a TWIN TURBO! ferrari enzo is naturally inspired 660 horsepower dipsh1t and enzo is a stock supercar yours is just one of the hundred companies that modify vipers.
     

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


    Dude the Enzo Ferrari DOESN'T have a top speed limiter!!!! I don't know who told you that but they have no clue!!!! Ferrari says 217.5 mph, but one test has already gotten it to 219.8 mph with more to come I'm sure!!!!

    No need to, my post above your last one explains it.
    Top speed as per Ferrari 217.5 mph. That is a conserative estimate, Ferrari said it themselves. As I said, only one magazine has been able to do a top speed test so far. It was a French magazine called Essais Auto. They got it to 219.8 mph. I bet someone will beat that to! But a 217.5 mph and 219.8 mph top speed is awesome regardless!
     
  13. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    How does he think that there is a topspeed limiter....if it even had one theres no point at shutting it off at 217.5, I think didn't ferrari say that it was most probably the minimal speed the car could go??
     

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


    Dude I have no idea where the hell he got that idea. Ferrari simply says the top speed is 217.5 mph. And as I said, so far only one test has actually been done so far. It was in France by some French magazine who got 219.8 mph.
     
  15. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    I bet you that it can probably do around 225mph, if they tested it to its full abilaties and in a good weather condition
     

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


    Maybe, maybe....I am sure in a few months a different magazine will test one. It is pretty hard to find a test facility that can handle a top speed test like that though. Either way, even 219.8 mph, in a car that does 0-60 in 3.1 sec in awesome. Look at the F1, it may do 230 or whatever, but its handling and braking suck, unlike the Enzo Ferrari which excels at it!
     
  17. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    i agree... the f1 was a farce - a pos made only 2 break the topspeed records... it couldnt handle, brake or steer nethin like this fine piece of machinery...
     
  18. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    Yes we know that.
     
  19. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    The Enzo is much better than F1 piece of crap. In its time it was great..but many cars have done better since...and now at the top is the Enzo.
     
  20. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    why is it so heavy?
     

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


    Heavy? It is only 3000 pounds. Remember it has to meet all the future goverment crash test standards the McLaren never had to meet. It actually got a four star rating in crash tests. That is as good as a Volvo, I think that is pretty cool. A safe supercar!
     
  22. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    a safe supercar, thats so #@$# #@$# #%$ lol.... you ppl should live life on the wild side
     

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


    Well when you are going to go well over 200 mph, you want safety.
     
  24. Re: The 1st, strange, road test...

    No you dont, that is stupid, ur stupid and im gonna rip off your nipples and shove them in your penis
     

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