Ferrari should force people to take an IQ test before they allow them to buy a car...
You mean, it is possible to have that much money and still be stupid? I thought the US was a meritocracy, right?
I would not buy an Enzo because I am stupid enough to do what that guy did too. I don't have a high enough IQ to rationally back up from a good challenge. This is not an American phenomenon...
I would ALWAYS counter the challenge to the best of my ability. I would rather find out the outcome then back down from it.

Better the Italian trash than the Benz.
So you'd buy an SL65 over an F430?
I respect the SL65 or SLR over an Enzo, but that doesn't necessarily make them better. The Enzo is a track car toned down barely for the street. The two Benz's are comfortable daily drivers and not too far off from being as fast. Guess which one takes more effort to build? Guess which ones are more reliable to boot?
However, I would choose the Ferrari if forced to merely for the superior resale value.

PS Damn the Enzo is ugly. The SLR ain't too hot either. Only the SL65 looks good to my eye, but there are simply too many similar looking ones around for it to ever have the status it's price implies.

For the price of an Enzo I could get all the cars I ever wanted and still have 300,000 left over.

Freude am fahren!
