There is no denying the fact that the Enzo Ferrari is one of the greatest cars ever made. Named after the founder, Enzo Ferrari, the Enzo was built in 2002 with Formula 1 technology like a carbonfibre body, carbon ceramic discs and a V12 engine. Seen here is possibly the best model car of the legendary Enzo ever made, a 1:12 version of the car made by Japanese model car manufacturer, Kyosho.

Although red is the most conventional colour for the Enzo, the one seen here in black looks way more aggressive and demonic than any other color. On the Kyosho version, as with most other 1:12 versions that the model maker makes, the wheels can be removed using a separate wrench to undo the centre bolt, displaying a detailed set of carbon ceramic brakes.

On the exterior front, the well applied paint combined with the photoetched parts makes the Enzo really stand out. Details like the photoetched wipers, highly detailed headlamps and the working spoiler add up to a highly desirable model. The wheels, cast out of metal too, have smaller details like air valves. the exhaust pipes on the rear combined with the tail lamps too look great.

On the interior front, the carbonfibre seats combined with the carbonfibre door cards are extremely highly detailed and showcase Kyosho’s extraordinary skill when it comes to making model cars. The steering wheel with its multiple functions also is well detailed in carbon along with the central console that comes with a 1:12 scale replica of the numbered and signed plaque that each car receives.

Below the engine cover, there is still more carbon fibre to salivate on along with other details like working pushrod suspension and a highly detailed set of cables, hoses and wires. The 1:12 Enzo Ferrari from Kyosho is a great modelcar and an absolute must have for any serious collector.
