This is the sort of news that makes my day - Thanks Nirvana!

I cant believe it, how can you better the Enzo? A central driver seating position, even lower COG, stability controls linking the aerodynamic surfaces with the cars suspension....but I know one thing. They still have a record to beat - And thats the Mclaren F1s top speed. That will certainly be one of the items on Montezemolos priority list.

But the irony is...less than 1 out of 10 Enzo drivers will really make use of all these developments. As Stevens said "These people (the owners) like to know they are on the cutting edge".

"Traction problems mean we will never get to 60mph below 3 seconds". We have discussed this before and just knew it is a herculean task.

Crazy Crazy Crazy !!!! Ferrari already bettering the Enzo. The Mclaren may still hold the record but I get the feeling the upgraded Enzo is going to take that soon enough.

Thanks for the article Nirvana.

Do u think they will do it? I mean more top speed than the mclaren f1? Is that really needed?
...even jay leno(owner of mclaren f1, porsche cgt, mc merc slr and many more...) says that he hardly goes 200 mph in mclaren f1 and says its more comforatble doing 200mph+ in the slr!! but again he tells about the mclaren f1 that its amazing and driving it is the greatest experience in the world.
....i hope ferrari would build something which is like the f40 and the mclaren f1... and the enzo.... and... no, thats enough.
