S:S:L Video: More Laps Around MSR Houston in the Ferrari Enzo

Just because there can never be too much video of an Enzo running around a race track, here’s one more video from my weekend visit to MSR Houston. The Enzo was run quite a bit harder during this session than in the first video, as evidenced by the helmets bouncing around.  Once again, turn it up and enjoy the ride!

S:S:L Ride Along – Ferrari Enzo @ MSR Houston

A few months back, we ran a story about the famous Ferrari Enzo that was featured in the movie Redline, and later crashed by actor Eddie Griffin.  Friend of S:S:L, Matt Groner, picked up the wrecked Ferrari and promptly proceeded to put the sacred Enzo back together.  This weekend we headed down to MSR Houston to hang out with friend of S:S:L, Michael Mills, who asked us if we wanted to go for a spin.  Uh, Fluck yes!   Enjoy the video and turn up the volume!
