In the October issue of Motor Trend, they interviewed the Chairman of Volkswagen Bernd Pischetsrieder and here's what he said while talking about his Ferrari Enzo:

"I love my Ferrari Enzo. The Enzo at maximum speed drives like a sport sedan at 120mph. It's by far the best car on the market in terms of aerodynamics. On a winding mountain road, it's maybe too big - a Lotus Elise is best for that - but it's still fabulous."

Great company to be compared directly to a car that regularly sells for more than a million dollars!:clap:

I believe the Enzo's MSRP is only a 'paltry' $650,000, so let's keep things in perspective.:eek:

Isn't Enzo ownership by invitation?

Sounds like he IS a real car guy after all. I was pretty pissed at him when he announced that Audi would be eliminating the RS car program..

Yes but have you ever looked into actually buying one? If you do you'll find out that you can't get one at MSRP if you're one of the special long time customers. The current going rate is around $1.2 million.

Yes, ownership was by invitation only, when you COULD purchase the car directly from Ferrari. They are not producing the car anymore.
Derek is correct and what I was referring to, the market right now is around $1.1 - $1.2 million if you want a car. "List" price was $650,000, but I've never actually seen a car listed for that price. Just check out www.autoweek.com. They usually have three or four listed each week.
