Anyone else see this? They took the Enzo round the Fiorano test track. Seemed to spend more time finding out where Schumacher takes a leak than in the car. What came across was the performance and the sound of the car (definitely Group C when opened up). Who the F was that guy driving/commentating though? They should check for a pulse.

that car sounded fantastic!

shame the rest of the programme was painful. according to one of the presenters (forget whether it was plato or the other guy) the guy who test drove it was an automotive authority; someone who everyone listens to when he speaks... no, i didn't believe it either

You'd have thought he'd have been a BIT excited wouldn't you? Had it been me, the moment I'd got out of the pits I'd have been yelling "WOO HOO WE'VE JUST BLAGGED A DRIVE" then NAILED IT and stood it on it's nose for the first chicane, in the words of JC (Jeremy Clarkson) 'with all the abandon of someone who's just been granted eternal life'.

I agree.
Driven is going down the Pan.Clarkson has probably got grey hair after seeing that.
The guy was more interested in the toilet and the way you open the window.
I want Topgear back with the good presenters ie. Jeremy Clarkson , Tiff Nedell ,Adrian Simpson ect.ect.
If i had been handed the keys to a 425000000 pound supercar i would be more interested in driving it rather than the windows.

They were inaccurate too ..... they are making 349 CUSTOMER cars (sold new) and 39 "prototypes" (to be thrashed by all and sundry then sold as "second hand")

Morning all,

thought I'd better register and say hello after tagging along to the Virginia Waters meet yesterday (blue elise). Nice to see so many great cars!

Back on topic, was in Maranello last week (over for the GP) and was lucky enough to see a pair of Enzo's being absolutely thrashed around Fiorano. Maybe giving journalists/prospective owners a demo, I don't know, but they weren't messing around. Fantastic looking/sounding car (in the flesh) and with awesome performance to match.

I'll have mine in red...

Chris
