    UCP Awards 2009: Car of the Decade [The Enzo Issue]

    Ok so I missed putting the Enzo in one of the threads. This thread will be a simple yes/no vote, and what I am asking is whether or not the Enzo should get to the finals, in essence, a bye. If there are more yes votes than no, then it will get a bye.

    No. Because there's the Veyron. And the GT-R.

    No, because there is the C6

    A Citroen C6 was already available in the early thirties of the previous century. Any other claim to that name is a breach of copywright.

    the enzo didnt break any boundaries or make any real breakthroughs in the supercar world compared to others that are on the list, so i say no. The F50 was in essence a formula one car with a more civilized shell. The enzo was just a modernised version of the same. While still a great car, i wouldnt say it would ever win any votes over the veyron, murcielago or the zonda F when looking amongst the class it is in.

    I doubt the Murcielago is a groundbreaking car at all. Great yes, a goal posts mover no.

    i'd say the sheer fact that the murcielago has been such a prominent figure in the supercar world for pretty much the entire decade despite its age it has evolved and changed with the times and hasnt shown any signs of being majorly overtaken even by the hypercars of late.

    No, because the Enzo is becoming a thing of the past I was still in second grade when the car came out. This was like 8 years ago, I remember buying a twenty dollar poser of this car though. It truly is what got me liking cars in the first place =]
    Now there are cars that will give the Enzo a run for its money, and I haven't really heard much news of the Enzo in years. The last time I heard someone say the name Ferrari Enzo was on a re-run of Top Gear.

    I love the Murci. I love the fact that it's the last old-schooler. I love its massive V12, I love the doors, I love the open gate gearshift. Everything is great. But these days it's barely faster, if at all, than a 599 GTB which isn't a supercar. The thing is it's been completely surpassed by the new-age carbonfibred supercars.

    The Enzo is a very different type of car. And it's a wonderful car at that.

    Not denying this, but I'm not judging personal preference here.

    For the record I don't like either.

    I'd say no, Because I don't feel like it's the best car of the Decade.

    No. I don't think it's special enough.

    The Murcielago should have a spot because it is THE definitive supercar of the decade.

    I would vote for it over those. You're saying the Enzo is an evolution of the F50. How is the Zonda F not an even more direct evolution of other Zondas?

    Neither are the other cars, really. A supercar only finale seems to be where we're going, though.

    I always figured a definitive super car should compete with other super cars. Like, you know, actually be a super car.

    The Enzo was crazy when it came out and was the standard by which the new wave of supercars (post F1) were measured for most of the decade. If all we're comparing is supercars, that gives it the nod for me.
