Awesome video.

And I think the guy was just racing to compare horsepower.

I don't know.

I have no idea who that guy is but I'm sure he's rich as hell and likes to switch it up from time to time. If I was rich I would drag my Ferrari 5% of the time, the rest of the time it would be road racing of course.

I wonder what the cost of that 430 is including the mods, and whether or not the Enzo would still hand it its ass on any course with a bend.

I'm sure on a real track the ENZO would leave the 430 behind. It's simply not as advanced when it comes to handling/aerodynamics. I've ridden in a 430 stock, and it's still a hell of a ride.

drag-racing your Ferrari is like masturbating to a Victoria's Secret catalog when you're dating one of the models.

If they are gonna drag race (what the cars are not meant for) Why didnt they at least do it right. Roll racing from dropped arms on a dragstrip? I bet we see this next on pinks. First they use a dragstrip and dont use the trees, next they dont even have standing starts.

Yes I understand these cars aren't the best from a deadstop, but they both have new fangled traction control systems making them stupid easy to launch relatively fast.

Gorgeous cars, I think I would still take the Enzo. Then again, I couldn't afford one wheel off a Ferrari at this point. lol
