    I don't see that as abuse? Nice an owner is enjoying the car.

    Question- how well do those Enzos shift now? With PDK and DSG gearboxes now, the Enzo gearbox has got to be dated now right?

    I'd do the same thing if I had an Enzo. Their certainly arent any tracks around here to hoon on. Though, if I could afford an Enzo, I could probably build a track in my backyard

    In the same way a four speed non-synchro manual does in comparison to a modern six speed rev-o-synchro-matic manual.

    Probably.

    Nothing wrong here, the roads are still paved, just dirty. It'd be different if they were pothole filled dirt roads with yumps

    Probably.
    By the way, it makes me wonder, wouldn't it be great to get continuous updates from the factory as your car ages and new technology gets developed? From what I heard the early manual automatic gearboxes were jerky in low speed maneuvering. I mean the Pagani Zonda weighs about the same as an Enzo but the Zonda still has air conditioning, leather and a stereo. It's also slightly newer, but not by much.

    Wouldn't it be nice if Ferrari developed a new DCT for the Enzo just for existing Enzo owners? That's be a nice gesture. I wouldn't expect it to be free though, but still it'd be able to keep the car "current". Perhaps the FXX and the 599 GTO are the only cars to be continuously developed, but rightly so.

    The only two other car makers that I can think of that do this are Pagani and McLaren.

    Just a thought.

    I'd rather say this is probably the only Enzo in the world used in the way it is supposed to be used

    Still...beautiful work of art? As for me, this is very questionable :/

    I see the whole discussion is based on the false premiss that the Enzo is a beautiful car.

    I have now come home and watched the video and have to say I was mistaken about the car being used as it was supposed to be - I was hoping to see a real action there instead of driving gravel roads and burning donuts
