saw this a few weeks ago, you have to remember:
1.major work done to slk and slr engine
2. slk was supercharged and intercooled
3.slk much lighter(different class altogether) those 3 or 4 of these things to the enzo then your see what happens to the slk
5. at the end of the day you pull in with the slk and i with the enzo, who are people going to be looking at.

ps you have to remember the enzo was ment for track perposes. when ferrari desined the car the had the choice to go fast straight, or in turns, anyone can make a car go fast in a straight line, it takes true skill to do it in the twists and turns. if ferrari wanted to build a car faster then the mclaren f1 thay would have done it before the mclaren f1 came out. this is prooved with the invention of the new mclaren slr, y not make it as fast as its perdesessor? because theses not point.

Yes, it was a normal SLR engine dropped into the SLK (which is nothing more than a supercharged 5.5L AMG engine with large intercoolers & cams.....he could have done the same thing for $35k with a Kleemann blower & it would have been the same result).

And no, the SLK is not much lighter, In fact its over 400 lbs HEAVIER (where do you get your data?)

Lastly, the Enzo has been tweaked to its maximum - there is no further room for more power. The SLR has significantly more torque than the Flat 12 in the Enzo so it handles its extra heft without an issue. Forced induction motors can always be modded more than normal aspirated powerplants. The Enzo got crushed. Period.

BTW, who cares what people think about "which car you pull up in". Its what you enjoy driving that matters.

The enzo got smoked and the mercedes is more exciting . Saying that ferrari made it mostly to handle is bull. 0-60 in 3.3 ? That sounds pretty damn fast if you ask me.
