Enzo prototype, anyone (with deep pockets)?

See advert:

FERRARI 365 GTC 4: Modena Motorsport

and article:

Ferrari Enzo prototype: You Know You Want To - PistonHeads

Apparently a rare escapee from the factory development programme.

Best wishes, John

I've seen it for sale many times over the years. Not a car I would want to own.

Onno, this I'd the first time I recall disagreeing with you.
I absolutely love that car.
I have no idea why, particularly since Ferrari's recent F1 performance is so abysmal...

Seriously, I can't think of a post-Enzo model I'd rather have.
Why wouldn't you want it?

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Looks to me like the missing link between the 288 GTO and the F40. I like it!

Enjoy the journey so much you don't care how long it takes to get there.

That's because you don't own it, David. I would be very surprised if that is not a nightmare to live with.

Because it's expensive to repair bugs and incomplete engineering?

Not just expensive, but the amount of times it would break down would dampen the ownership experience considerably. After all, even if I were Ralph Lauren I would still own the cars to drive (unlike him).

Apart from that, I think it is an ungainly thing, the lines are all wrong. It's just an elongated F355 with a V12 engine. I doubt the road handling will be that great, it was not a chassis test bed, just an engine test bed. So how she drives is anyone's guess but I'm sceptical.

Not the prettiest car I have ever seen. In profile, it's proportions remind me of a Zonda - too cab-forward for my liking - and the 348 was not the greatest starting point aesthetically speaking, though I guess looks were not important in the context of its original purpose.

Ignoring its appearance, I still cannot see why, rarity aside, anyone would want to have a car that was, almost be definition, not as good as it could be, i.e. as the finished product. And for me, rarity does not necessarily = desirable.

So I shan't be buying
