Default Owner's Manuals of Ferraris, Nissan GTR & other Exotics

Ever wonder what the gearbox and differential look like in an F50? Ever wonder what the break-in period for an Enzo is?

So here they are, for those of us who would like to know what reading a supercar's manual must be like,and for those who really want to know more about the engineering features of these amazing machines and also for those, who'd like to fantasize about owning one!

The following PDF's are an absolute must-read for the more extremist of fanatics here , being the enthusiast I am, reading the manuals themselves was an experience for me. I can't even imagine what applying theoretical knowledge must be like! Perhaps, this might be the only way some of us here could feel the Ferrari Enzo and F50 ownership experience.

The official owner's manuals for the Enzo and the F50.

F50: http://axisofoversteer.com/blog/docu...0_USA_1995.pdf



Mods: as you can imagine, it is difficult deciding where to place a thread like this or how to share something like this on T-BHP. Hopefully everything here is all good.

And yes there has been a thread like this before, but all the links have gone dead since the post !

Excellent articles. I would be very surprised if any of the Indian manufacturers provide such detailed documentation.

Agreed ! But I think both cars are in different realms hence the detail in the Ferrari manuals. I mean there really isn't much to write about with Indian cars, but when you have a V12 producing 600 + something horsepower , detail can only do good for the owner. It's actually scary power IMHO, so detail, is very much needed. Notice how they describe driving the Enzo as "departure", as if it's a plane(I'm sure it is)! Those funny Italians!

Good god this is spectacular. This is really good. I can't wait to read through the full manual (not sure how many days/months it will take me though!)
