He couldnt wait for the car to get out of the shop he went out & bought another one. So know he has two of em sitting in storage.
Ummm, you can't go buy one. There were only 499 produced, the idea being you produce 1 less then you can selll.... They were all sold a long time ago, and only select buyers were interested.

I'm sure their value has already taken off as well. They are priceless cars, not made for puting around town. They aren't nice and soft inside, it'* a race car, that'* legal on the road.

This guy had to be someone to get it, so i bet the accident wasn't al his fault. Someone coulda hit the front end fromt eh side and just went thru it.

In order to be approved by Ferrari to buy a new one, you needed to have an F50 and possibly also have an F40.

What!?!?! I've never heard this. It'* not a car i'd like to own, i'd love to drive it once or twice, but it'* a car thatvery few people could get rolling from a light, let alone get it out of their driveway safely.

The clutch and tranny manage themselves, actually, electronically. I read it'* suprisingly easy to drive.
In order to get an Enzo, you need an F50. To get an F50, you need an F40.

By the looks of the pics, I also think that someone else could have hit the Enzo from the side, in front. May explain the missing pieces. If it was a head on crash I'd guess it would be more cruncked inward.

I don't think the air bags would go off if it were hit from the side. They need actual frontal collision while moving type of forces to actuate.

I thought the same thing. But that front hood isn't cracked/bent at all. It'* kind of pushed to the side. And a lot of the front was taken out in the crash. If it was hit hard enough from the side the sensors had to be damaged causing the airbags to go off I bet someone else may have run a light and clipped his front end while going through an intersection.

in order for your airbag to go off you have to decellerate at a certain pace. Theres a ball in a inclosed block in your 'frame' that when the ball hits the buzzer(and the sensor is set off) the bags go off.

I think you are most likely right. The car had to be moving, and got clipped real good.
