|2003 Ferrari Enzo
|One of only 70 produced per Year for US Market
The decision to designate this car after founder Enzo Ferrari comes
during a period of great achievement for the Company and is a tribute to his enduring vision: the synergy between racing and
exclusive, technologically advanced road car production.
The body is striking similar to the Pininfarina designed Rossa
concept which debuted last year. Pininfarina have designed this car such that no rear wing is neccessary. The undertray and
front ducts generate sufficient downforce to keep the Enzo stable up to speeds of 220mph.
On the Enzo, the aerodynamic
load and balance can be modified on the road by means of a pair of flaps positioned in the front slides and a rear spoiler.
engine of the Enzo Ferrari is a 12-cylinder aspirated unit in a 65° V, with a completely new design, based on experience gained
in Formula 1.
The timing gear features 4 overhead camshafts, direct valve control and hydraulic tappets. It is belt-driven,
with central transmission on triple gearing. The timing of the inlet and exhaust manifolds is continuously variable, thanks
to the intervention of the four variable advances activated by the engine control unit throughout the field of operation via
a high pressure hydraulic system.
The variable geometry inlet manifold is also borrowed from Formula 1, with a system
of small telescopic pumps activated by hydraulic actuator, that allowed the power and peak torque values to be maximised.
The gearbox unit was developed only in a Formula 1 version, with an electrohydraulic system to
activate the gearbox and clutch. Gear changes are managed electronically, activated by paddles positioned behind the steering
wheel, on the basis of engine torque and vehicle dynamics.
The Enzo has independent front and rear suspension with
articulated double wishbones, and antidive-antisquat geometries to limit pitching during the transfer of longitudinal loads.
Combined with this suspension layout, an adaptive set-up was adopted for the Enzo, based on a system of continuous control
of the dampers.
The Enzo Ferrari project is the first example of the complete integrationof vehicle control systems.
Engine, gearbox, suspension, ABS/ASR, and aerodynamics all interact to guarantee the optimisation.of the vehicle's performance
The way the systems interact depends on the driving modes that the driver can choose from. The Enzo offers
several set-ups: Sport, Race or no ASR.
The production version of Enzo will officially be presented at the Paris Auto
Show on September 26th. It will bring Ferrari's most advanced technology, directly derived from the Formula 1, to the road.
The Enzo represents the ultimate expression of technological transfer from F1 to Ferrari's road-going GTs. This concept has
always benefited from Ferrari's racing experience at the highest level.
