Has the Enzo any chance for racing pedigree?

    Not trying to be provocative here, just curious:

    Is there a racing class in which the Enzo could participate and even stand a chance of getting onto the podium?

    Obviously with only 399 built it is rare enough, so it doesn't need additional pedigree to add to its aura, but it would be nice.

    Without knowing regulations too much, I don't see any reason why an Enzo could not run in the FIA GT-series or at Le Mans 24Hr.

    imagine what a even further race equipped enzo would be capable of.itd be insane.even better brakes, suspension, intake/cooling' and weight reduction(which technically it could use since they did go over the desired weight by a little bit) itd be so damn fast.(er)

    With the Enzo-based Maserati racer coming online soon, I'd say there's a chance (albeit a slim one) if the car becomes a successful platform to expand on. An Enzo GT1 would be something to behold.

    No. The version that F is going to give a go they are badging as a Maser.
    In it's class if they spend enough time, $, and effort it may have a chance for a class win but overall? Unless SPA puts serious efforts into sportscar racing such as VW/Audi/Bentley/P is doing I doubt it will take overall honors.

    unfortunately it seems like if you buy one ,race it if you like, very unlikely we will see one though. ferrari needs to do a factory racer just once, we are happy in f1, but really guys lets see imsa and lemans entries

    Enzo cant compete at le mans because it has active aero.

    I would love to see an Enzo GT even if they will never be raced like the F50 GT.
