    Man if he was my uncle I would bug him everyday to let me drive the Enzo or the Zonda (for a full week).

    Charles - As my business is in supercars I know many people who work in Ferrari etc, I am *sure*I know who your friend is. :)

    If I am right, he's a pretty generous guy.
    But best of all - his taste in aftermarket modifications for his supercars is ABSOLUTELY IMPECCABLE.
    If I am right his SL55 is one of the best sounding cars I've EVER EVER heard (not stock of course).

    Please ask him to drop by our office if he ever needs something for his F-cars. :) We will do him a great deal (I'm not joking).

    P.S.
    A Diablo GT owner told me that your friend once owned an example that has now left our shores. That's at least one significant car you have left out!!!!!!

    I had the pleasure to meet several time Benny at Moroso. He had several of the F cars on the track and age or not, let me tell you that he wasn't affraid to stick his foot on the pedal...
    I hope to be still"playing" like him at his age. He is a true F lover.
    I'm glad I had the chance to meet him

    My dad took Benny in his Enzo at Pocono last year ( i think he hadnt received his car yet ) and he told me he was very enthusiastic and telling my dad to go faster and faster :)

    Sounds like a great guy, he owns so many amazing cars and yet is still sooo enthusiasts !

    reminds me of that guy in the dupont registry a few years back who owned 2 mclaren F1s. Maybe this guy is planning on cashing in on 1 of those enzos a couple years down the road?? Crazy collection though that guy has awesome taste in cars.

    You see ... something is really true, the riches only gets richer and richer ..

    If you're the lucky owner of the Enzo, you've already earned a fortune right now not to mention the gain in currency fluctuation. The same to the F40, F50 owners !

    It's never fair ....

    Something tells me that Benny worked his balls off for what he's got... Fair enough, if you ask me... Granted some people have stuff merely because they're members of the lucky sperm club, but other people own these cars from years of blood sweat and tears...


    A good question is raised here, though... How come some people were given the option to purchase more than one Enzo...? Anyone know...? Because 2 Enzos is what, 7.98 percent of the total amount being made...? That's bugged out...

    or less than 1% of total production depending on your math;)

    Good question. It would be interesting to know the criteria for multiple Enzo purchases.

    Assuming 399 cars:

    2 / 399 = .5012%


    While if you used a calculator you could have done something like:

    2 * 399 = 798

    OR

    399 / .5 = 798

    That's why I don't like to use calculators.

    I can vouch for that. My grandfather was an Italian immigrant construction laborer. No silver spoons for his kids. Not by a long shot!

    I thought that Pagani Zondas couldn't be driven in the US.

    I might be wrong on this, but Pagaini was working on federalizing the cars for the US.

    As for driving one, you could also ask Wyclef John(Rap star).
    He owns one too.

    I'm sure Benny worked for what he got now .. and definitely sure he's smart in making money !

    But then the point is, once you get rich .. you'll be more rich cos you grab your opportunity much easier then anyone else. Of course, it takes a talent to hold that opportunity and realise it.
