The Coolest Car Ever




Ferrari's Gran Turismo is inspired by Formula One technology, and it already benefits from over fifty years of Ferrari success. Enzo is named in honor of the companies' founder, and it is one of a limited series of road cars including the 288GTO, F40 and F50. These cars are the proof that Ferrari follows its faith of producing the most exclusive and technologically advanced road car. Enzo’s goal was to bridge the gap that has ever been between everyday road cars and race cars. In order to achieve this goal, many improvements have been made in the production technology of the brand.

Enzo was built in Maranello, and tested around Fiorano by both Michael Schumacher and Dario Benuzzi. Inside the company, the project was known as the FX, and it has cost Ferrari 20 million euros to develop. The initial production number was set to 350 Enzos, but 400 were built in red, yellow or black, or a custom color if the customer's relationship with the firm was strong enough. The extra fifty cars brought in $28.8 million USD (24.4 million euros) for Ferrari, with each car being sold at a $554 00 USD (487,700 EU) profit, Ferrari proving this way that they can not only sell half million dollar cars, but they can yield a considerable profit margin from them too.
