Enzo Ferrari Part 3 of 5




By all accounts, the Enzo is stable when cornering, though it is so powerful that it can be difficult to control. The car does have rack-and-pinion power steering, a small nod to driver comfort. The coil-shock units are pushrod actuated, and the shock absorbers can be electronically adjusted from the cockpit into two different positions. The four-wheel independent suspension is further stabilized by front and rear anti-roll bars.
The Enzo meets the road on four Bridgestone Scuderia tires, specially designed and tuned for this car. The front features 245/35ZR-19s, and there are 345/35ZR-19s on the rear, mounted on forged aluminum, single-nut wheels.
Even the brakes are excellent on the Enzo. The Brembo-produced, 15-inch discs slow the car down remarkably quickly. Almost all the drivers who tested the Enzo reported a few embarrassing laps, creeping through the turns after mashing on the brakes to stem the Enzo's mighty horsepower. It turns out a lighter touch is needed. An anti-lock braking system helps control those steep descents in speed.
