    Which car looks better: Enzo or F50 ?


    I say F50. I would also prefer to own an F50 over an Enzo. I just think the Enzo is right out of a Japanese cartoon. The F50 screams style to me.

    Thoughts and comments encouraged :)

    F50 no doubt. I remember reading about Paul Frame's cars in one of the magazines when they first came out, and it was orgasmic. Something about how you had to lease them only and then purchase them later.

    The F50 to my genaration is what the Countach was to the earlier generations. It is a true supercar that just oozes an attitude that is not easily duplicated. The car strikes fear in the hearts of other people. Also the way the wing is integrated is just stunning.

    Stunningly orgasmic :eek:

    I chose the F50. I'm sure it didn't hurt that I've been lusting after the F50 for so long now, and it was the one that was coming out as I was just starting to read about these great machines.

    IMO it's the Enzo. I'm just the type who tends to like newer, fresh models. I've heard some people say that the Enzo is ugly, etc..., but I've never agreed. I've always thought it was beautiful and ultra exotic, as it should be.
    The interior is awesome and the doors are just out of this world. The way the car looks when both doors are open is awe inspiring.

    F50, The Enzo was designed by that Japanese designer Pininfarina hired , God knows why. I didnt care much for his work. I heard he is gone now. Good. The Enzo looks like something out of a Japanese cartoon :(

    I voted for the F50, However, 288 GTO knocks everything into a cocked hat !!

    No, man, I´m afraid he hasn´t left Pininfarina yet, he´s still there. He also made the Maserati Quattoporte and the 612 Scaglietti.

    Leonardo Fioravanti, we miss you.

    When automotive journalists say they don't like the F50 styling - "it's not the best looking car put out by Pininfarina, etc." - I just don't understand what they are talking about. Its lines are so fluid and sweeping. I wouldn't change a single part of the design. I love it. One of the most beautiful of all time, in my opinion.

    Enzo by a long ways, though I wouldn't call it beautiful by any means. But it's proportioned well and has a very agressive look. The F50 is a slab-sided mish-mash of disproportionate styles looking for a car to abuse. :) It looks like a kit car.

    For a truly beautiful supercar you have to go back to the 288GTO...or to a different marque. :)

    I love the technology of the Enzo but I like the aesthetics of the F50 better.

    As far as I am concerned, the high point of the Ferrari street car design was set by the F-50 and should be the standard to beat with future cars.

    I'm with you Mark. The F50 is ill-proportioned, they did a better job with the Enzo as far as this is concerned. Both are not my favorites though. I love the GTO and F40. Much more character.

    Neither, winning shape is the F40 or 288 GTO.

    Ahhh....

    The F50 just plain takes my breath away. Enzo & Japanese designers? Now I understand why I thought that the later model were all starting to squint.....

    I think the Enzo looks better than the F50, but indeed if they would ask me to choose between the F40 and the 288 GTO it would not be so easy.
    But hey , you can't argue about taste, it depends purely on the individual.
