Zub Zero for me. I am no Ferrari fanboy, but they are the only supercar maker, since Lamborghini went to Audi and became soul-less.

Re: Ferrari Enzo

one of my favourite cars EVER. so repulsively vulgar its beautiful. the flagship model from the best car manufacturer. makes a noise to die for and will probably do a good job of trying to kill you by snapping your neck if you put your foot down in it. you couldnt buy one as you had to be chosen by Ferrari themselves, that commands respect.

cool?? dont be f**king silly! you would look like a monumental twerp in this. doesnt stop it being an awesome car but its far from cool

Re: Ferrari Enzo

Oooh dear, look at the pics, there`s not a cohesive line in it and it`s just a yuppie mobile at best. I remember seeing two of the afore mentioned in one in the west end not long after it came out and they just looked like prats!

Ferrari did it all so well with the F40, Banging engine/chassis and bugger all in the way of creature comforts that anything else was doomed to failure.
Keep it simple is the golden rule!

Sorry if this upsets anyone, but it`s all subjective,
PJ

Re: Ferrari Enzo

Uncool....

As has already been said, nothing redeeming about the looks of it and Ferrari have tried to give it 'exclusivity' by choosing who took delivery, thus trying to control who their product was associated with.

It doesn't have the 'elusive factor' that makes a sub Zero car, unfortunatly it cant even muster cool so it gets the booby prize of uncool for me.....

20 years from now people will look at it and go eugh!!! that's ugly whereas they will still be drooling over a GTO or Dino

Re: Ferrari Enzo

Not good looking and certainly not cool.

The one in the photo even has red leather to match the red paintwork, just to rubber stamp it's uncool credentials.

Exactly right there.

How have Ferrari managed to go so wrong in the last 20 years?

Their last properly good looking car was the 456GT, before that the 328GTB/S and 288GTO were gorgeous as were most of their predecessors.

I want to like this, but I just don't like the wings or the wing mirrors.

Re: Ferrari Enzo

Lacks the presence and purpose of an F40, doesn't have the style of a Daytona, doesn't have the pretty lines of a 355.

David Becham's probably got one.

Re: Ferrari Enzo

It's just a car for people with more money than taste. It lacks the essential flaws that make some (very few) supercars cool.

I agree that I don't think it will age well.

Re: Ferrari Enzo

As others have said it's an awesome car but it's no where near cool.

Re: Ferrari Enzo

I very nearly clicked 'seriously uncool', but had a think and made it just 'uncool'

It's just another modern Ferrari, all image, and what substance they have is completely overshadowed by the incredible list of annoying idiots that own them.

The perfect car for the proposterously rich gentleman with no taste or imagination.

As alternatives to a new Enzo? Either an AM Vanquish, a new AM DBS, or obviously an 8C.

As alternatives in an older car? A DB5, a Daytona or - if they were *really* cool - a Facel Vega.....
