Jay Leno Has A Blast In An Iconic Ferrari Enzo

By today’s standards, the Ferrari Enzo isn’t quite the fastest thing on the road. Yet, that hardly takes anything away from its iconic status as one of the greatest supercars ever built.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine, the Enzo puts down 660 PS (651 HP) and 657 Nm (485 lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in a little over 3 seconds. It will also run a 1/4 mile in about 11 seconds, which is very respectable.

It’s all business inside too, with carbon fiber everywhere and a minimalist design, where all you get is air-con and not much else. Not even a radio, although Jay Leno might have a funny solution for that.

Once he got the car on the road, the former Tonight Show host found the Enzo to be well put together and surprisingly comfortable to drive, though a little less visceral than the F40.

Using a Ferrari Enzo as a road car rather than a track car is easily accomplished too, according to Leno. He says that as long as you don’t go looking for it, the car isn’t going to “beat you up.”

    The Enzo is so damn cool, in that old-school, naturally aspirated, phenomenal Ferrari way. A way in which I do not get excited about their modern line-up which has gotten increasingly more GT car-ish, heavier, and turbo’d. The LaFerrari is a beast, no doubt, but it too is a technological tour-de-force where, in contrast, I find the simplicity of the Enzo formula much more enticing/refreshing.

      I endorse this message!
      Lol, but yeah, the “soul” of modern cars is slowly dying with all of the electronic aids, downsizing of engines to be more fuel efficient, basically dumbing down cars. And somehow people still find ways to wreck them…. This is my personal favorite Ferrari
