    What will the next prancing supercar look like? I'd like something more feline, the Enzo is about as cute as a Cat D9. What about something similar to a 330P4 (412P) with modern goods under the hood? It could be the called the 660PP8.

    I heard they were going to twin-turbo the Enzo's V12 (a-la Mercerdes) with a bit lower compression, to the tune of about 900 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. The obligatory CVT (First ever at this torque rating) transmission, and independent electric motors at each wheel to provide roughly 45mpg city, and cylinder deactivation to pull 50 mpg at 90 mph.

    All this weighing under 2500 lbs with a price tag somewhere between a Honda S2000 and a McLaren F1.

    haha, yeah, actually, the rumor is that the U.S. is changing its bumper and ride regulations on road cars, and so F1 cars are now going to be street legal. As a result, Ferrari will produce a limited run of 399 Formula 1 cars. SF shield standard. Unfortunately, no challenge grille option.

    LMAO...!


    The first two were 8 cylinder turbos; the last two were 12 cylinder... Maybe the next two will be 8 cylinder turbos again...? Maybe Ferrari should consider a 10 cylinder supercar; something light and something focused on acceleration and not top end... If the car topped out at 180 or 200 but went from 0-60 and a flat 3 seconds or less, that'd be a hell of a car - it wouldn't hurt if it had some styling cues from the NNO...

    ...although, the F430 does and IT doesn't look so pretty... :)

    Andy, thanks for the tip, I immediately called my dealer and was able to secure the #1 spot on "THE LIST". They said I should expect delivery early 06. Wow, can't wait, and such a reasonable price too.

    I'm glad my advice proved useful.

    By the way, for the record, I lust more after your collection of cars than any other collection on this entire site. I don't feel such lust for the collecitons of Alex Papas or Armen G because I doubt those will be attainable for me.

    But as I enter law school, it is garages like yours that I dream of :)

    I wonder if someone living next to the factory in Italy has seen a new Ferrari prototype on the roads that could possibly be the Enzo replacement.
    Time will tell...

    I hope it has a V12 ...and I want it to have a spoiler at the back. (a la F40, F50 or a spoiler similar to the F50 GT)

    i just wanted to interject here...

    You folks DO know that NOTHING can "replace" the NNO, right...? i mean, they can make something else after it, in the way of supercars, but nothing will ever "replace" the NNO... :)

    I've always wondered, why the hell do you guys call the Enzo the NNO?

    We really need to sticky the answer to that question.

    NN=2 Ns= N(s)[plural]+ O= Enzo. And someone else on this board has the name Enzo, and NNO is more hardcore than the Enzo guy.

    Pat Pasqualini has the name 'Enzo', i think, in the name of Enzo Ferrari, the man, not the car... i think Pat knew about Ferraris before i was born, although i don't know how old he is... :)

    I could see that happening. It would be even better if they were legal to run at Le Mans.
