    Even the 959 looks fresh and I love the paint color.  Bodes well for how the 918 look will age!

    I could not agree more. The CGT is the best sounding car on the planet. Driving it with the sound behind your head is glorious.Smiley

    Also, my car is louder than my friend's CGT, believe it or not. Stock. Smiley And faster. And easier to drive. Not that cool though. Smiley

    We do a drive together almost every weekend and both cars are stock. Smiley

    CR also has a CGT for years now. Great sound but the new R8 is definitely louder, especially in the lower rev range. When the CGT screams, it is pretty loud but so is the R8, believe it or not. Slightly different tone though (CGT sound is a higher pitch scream, while the R8 is more of a deeper trumpet style tone sound).

    Again...stock. Can't say much about modded cars and many CGT owners modded their exhaust (for a reason Smiley).

    CGT also happens to be kinda underwhelming in design. Pretty plain. That's why I never got one. Even when they were like $280K, I just didn't think it was a good looking car.

    That's what I like about the CGT. That design will never get old, It has perfect lines.

    On the other hand, the Enzo is not aging that well IMO. Ugly as sin.Smiley

    Yeah, I thought about the same thing this morning. The F40, and F50 will always look good IMHO, but they went too far with the Enzo design, so It seems to be stuck forever in 2002.

    Christian, louder doesn´t mean better, far from it. The original CGT exhaust is more than enought for my ears regarding loudness, it´s the perfect balance. On which thread is your picture?

    With Ferraris it usually: if you don't like the design yet - wait for another 10 years Smiley Few Ferraris from the past are not looking great from today's vantage point. It seems unlikely the Enzo will make an exception to the rule Smiley

    IMO the Enzos design is very purposeful and has a lot of character , but a pretty car it has never been. I've never liked it, from the moment it was launched.

    Couldn't agree any more. The Enzo is a super car and still looks fresh. As most Ferrari age very badly, the F40 & Enzo stayed young. The F50 aged bad - looks the least attractive of all. Let's see how the LaFerrari will handle aging!

    CGT with straight pipes sounds orgasmic, stock is good only when pushed hard.

    It has 5 flaws

    - Clutch Operation

    - Ground Clearance

    - Limited Tire Choice

    - Soft Ride

    - Weight

    The only thing that beats the CGT's V10 is an Italian V12 + Zonda R

    The problem with the Enzo is, red isn't the right color choice unlike the rest of Ferrari's.

    What an AMAZING set of pics Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Unbelievable how the Enzo still looks so good next to LaFerrari. And I agree with Lars, look at how old the F50 looks next to Enzo, still, I never liked the F50 even when it came out.

    Again thanks for this pics, the blue/camel Enzo looks unique, this must the only Enzo with this combo,  absolutely stunning.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    So I am not the only weirdo that likes the Enzo the best! 

    I think it's the best looking Ferrari, it's design is purposeful and stood the test of time, unlike the old 'classic' melted butter shapes of the likes of 250, 275, 330, etc, those just looks dated and old. It doesn't matter how many trillions they are worth, they are just plain ugly.

    F40 looks old also , but it's iconic, F50 is the unloved child among the 5 Ferrari hypercar for some reason. 

    CGT also stood the test of time, it's more than 10 years old but it doesn't look that way.
