A fake used in FERRIS.

Enzo’s are about 1.2-1.4 million. Likely total it out and cut him a check.

Sad loss of a great car!

FYI: “Fux” is pronounced “fyooks”.

So all you filthy minded people can just settle down. /snicker

- Enzo is DEAD…

- An “Enzo Ferrari” is a particular model - like a “Ferrari 250 California” or “Ferrari 308 GTS” like actor “Tom Selleck drove in “Magnum PI”

…zircons not included...

mechanic took the sports car out for a ride and spun out of control.

Sounds like a "Hold on and watch what this baby can do" moment.
According to the article, he had a passenger with him.

so, using your logic, my last car was a Crown Victoria LX Ford and my truck is an F-350 super duty Ford?

Most people I know list manufacturer, then model, then trim packages

Enzo was the founder of Ferrari. He’s dead. There is no Enzo Ferrari anymore. After his death, the company named its top of the line vehicle in honor of the memory of his creation of the marque.

There are a few Ferrari Enzos, though.
