Default Work Begins On Enzo Replacement:

From A Factory Worker On The Italian News Network:

Quote »
Translated: I have seen the models. They sit out on the design floor, and I walk around them everyday. It is scary just how different it looks from the Enzo, yet it still looks like a racecar.

It looks very fast, and very low. I tried asking about it, but no one would tell me anything. I also saw a convertible one.

I'm assuming this is either the Enzo Replacement, or the new Dino.

In either case, it was aired last night on ther news, as they were talking about Ferrari being the number one friendliest company or something.

Anyways, hopefully someone can verify this.

I look forward to seeing what it is.

Who could have forseen this stunning turn of events. I hear the new one goes from 0-60 in 1.0 second, costs 7 million dollars and comes with slushie cup holders. An Enzo replacement? Blow my mind.

That seems untimely for a Enzo replacement. Would it be an F## car? F60 would have been this year if they were to follow the tradition. Maybe they want to move it to 2010 (then do 2020 etc.) and call THAT the F60. 3 years until '10, that's the usual time-frame for developming a Ferrari. ??

When Ferrari introduced the FXX and called buyers "factory test drivers", I thought it was just a little marketing to get wealthy men to part with $2,000,000 for a car. But after reading about how they selected the buyers and the telemetry they're recording from sessions, I can see that they are using this to develop the "next Enzo."

The real genius of modern Ferraris is in the electronics: The mannetino switch and e-diff in the F430 is just plain brilliant in managing the capabilities of the car to make everyone a hero. The systems actually anticipate the movement of the vehicle based on pre-determined parameters programmed by the engineers.

In the case of the FXX, they have actual customers of mediocre to fairly good driving skills push the vehicle to its limits, mapping out how the vehicle will behave for those interested in creating a streetable version. For this reason I think this new car (F-whatever) will likely have horsepower and power/weight ratios similar to the FXX.

Hopefully next time they name a car after the creator of the company, They'll have a bit more respect for him.

And I hope one day they get their interiors sorted. They look 80s old to me now.

More was heard about it the other day when Micheal Schumacher had a press conference about his return to the Ferrari team as a F1 Co-ordinator. I quote:

We've been testing alot of new cars, and the team is very optimistic about the new season. Along with the track cars, I've had the oppurtunity to test a new road car, which seems more closer to an F1 car then ever before. F1 seems to be evolving at an incredible rate, and so is the street foray in which replicates the track experience. I look very forward to this new car, and this new season.
