Eddie Griffin's moderate-speed
publicity stunt wipeout of real estate-monger turned B-movie producer Daniel Sadek's gazillion dollar Ferrari means two things. Carbon fiber, while totally light and high tech, sort of blows because a "just needs a bit o'Bondo" smashup like Understeering Brother managed to hoon means the car is totaled. Scrap. Headed for the proverbial junkyard in the sky. But the "accident" also means that another perfectly ballistic 65-degree, 6.0-liter V12 good for 650 horsepower is collecting dust in one of Southern California's many sun-drenched warehouses. To give you a modicum of perspective, AMG needs two intercooled turbochargers hooked up to the same size engine to generate 612 ponies (never mind the TORQUE!) in the just-about-here CL65. So, what do we do with such a mad motivator? Mr. G. Johnson has convinced me that the Enzo engine would be perfectly at home in the back of a WRX wagon. I'm doubly sure of this as I got smoked by an STI just yesterday. But, do you have a better idea?
