A:These photos are so old... that they appear to have been snapped on film.
Fujifilm 35-mm film!
My, how the times are moving fast.
But even though the original photos have aged, the car is as gracefully brutal as it was when Tiff Needell first took it around a few hot laps of the Fiorano circuit. Here he is, in fact.
Remember this exact car? The one with the Ferrari partner/supplier stickers on the side air ducts?
One for old souls, perhaps. Or at least people who have been devouring car magazines since the 2000s -- which is all of us, I bet.
It is great to see the Enzo in its launch prime. Even Michael Schumacher was on hand to bless the gifted hypercar. A treat to see them both in peak form.
But while we will all get so old that 35-mm film will be something we tell out grandchildren about nostalgically -- my hunch is that the 2003 Enzo Ferrari will stay razor-sharp in its appeal for decades to come.
