The day I had a ride in a Ferrari Enzo

Well this Sunday I had the most amazing experience a car nut can have! Thanks to some close online friends, i had a ride in a Ferrari Enzo in Germany, 300 km from my home. it was a blast, something you can't believe or understand.. as all of you I read so many reviews of Enzo or similar hypercars, but never, NEVER I was able to fully understand how damn quick such cars are. Just to let you know, the same day I was passenger also on a Ferrari 360 Spider and a Diablo 2WD and both cars, even the Diablo, compared to the Enzo are no faster than my BMW E36 320i, believe me!
Acceleration is for sure mesmerizing and able to cut your breath away, but the most impressive moments are the braking ones. Those brakes made my vision turn to black a couple of time and needless to tell you after 5 minutes I was car sick as I never was in my life, but it was the ride of a life and despite the quite high price for a 5 minutes highspeed drive (on open B roads but with speeds well over 200 km/h and the owner behind the wheel BTW), It was absolutely worth every single cent and if you'll ever be able to do something like that, pay, you won't regret! And if I think I was the only one that actually paid for the Enzo, I almost feel sorry for the others!

Anyway, the final word: if you think you can guess how fast a Enzo is, you are completely wrong... if you never experienced something faster than a some years old V12 lambo or present V8 Ferrari, you can't even come close

And the big thanks goes for my pals at jabbasworld for giving me the best present ever!!!!!!!!!!

I think you will like the small (and shitty) vid I took with my Canon Pro 1 inside the Enzo and the 360 Spider too. Sadly it's a 8 MP digicamera but not really good for vids of course... that's why I'm gonna post a couple of pics too

Here is the video.. it's just 6 MB, hosted by me on my g/f's website, so don't spread the url (and be quick since it won't stay up forever )

In the first 4 you can see

Nice friends, you owe them big
Great pics.
The video won't play, I get codec error, is anyone else able to view it ?
( I've had codec problems before so it may be mine )

...after 5 minutes I was car sick as I never was in my life,
Please tell us you got out of the car first !!!

On trackdays I carry aircraft bags in the car for EXACTLY that reason.
most folks after a few laps on a race circuit at race speeds are queazy, so don't feel bad
Even folks who DRIVE can experience motion sickness when they are not driving. It's to do with the aggresive braking, acceleration and turning which they cannot brace themselves for the same way a driver does. it can help to imagine yourself driving. turning and braking as if you WERE driving

have you started saving up for another shot yet ?????

LOL yes I managed to keep everything inside and jumped out of the car to find a dude wanting to interview me with his ****ing microphone LOL! Anyway I didn't vomit on him and I quickly felt better

Well, as you may know, on the Enzo's speedo, the 200 km/h are on the vertical. And I wasn't able to see the needle after that since it was covered by the console.. anyway at the end of the first clip it was just passed above 200.. let's say 220 km/h (136 mph). The limit there was probably 80 or 100 km/h.
In the second part and on the Modena clip I think top speeds were around 180 km/h

[quote]how much did this ride cost, if you don't mind me asking?[/quote

t's not a secret since every detail was posted anyway on JW
the ride in the 360 and Diablo costed 60 Euro (each), the Enzo was 290 Euro

LOL, you bet!

Yes you misunderstood me of course LOL. I mean.. compared to the Enzo, F360 and Diablo don't seem much faster than my 320i... of course they are both WAY faster than it, but the Enzo is so MUCH impressive that every other car seems a Fiat Panda

And well, no the Enzo was not planned anyway for more than 3 or 4 rides. But anyway I was the only one.. basically without me the Enzo would have stayed into the garage.. poor sweetie

the enzo?

IF you want a good experience do not waste your money on a ride in the enzo!

Ask a round, i am sure most people would rather prefere a ride in the lamborghini murcielago. A top notch car 205MPH.

Can you explain why ?

Why would a Murc be much bvetter than on Enzo ON A TRACK ? Please explain.

I'm afraid the 'name' of the Ferrari will always atract more interest and higher prices than a Lambo.
It's just the way of the world.

At Knockhill, one of the kit cars (Quantum) was putting in some of the best times. A good driver, but the car looks like a family saloon and nobody was interested. You get used to the 'name' and the image being the attractor and not the outright performance
