If, like the rest of us, you were wondering exactly what would become of the bright yellow Ferrari Enzo that took a dive into the bay at the 2011 Targa Newfoundland, wonder no more. According to the owner's Facebook page, the carbon-fiber beast will ride again courtesy of the good people at Edo Competition. ZR Auto has packed the Prancing Horse into an air freight crate for a quick hop across the the pond in a 747. Judging from the photos, the vehicle only suffered slight aesthetic damage on the front right corner after smashing through a wooden walkway. The owner also took quick action to begin disassembling the dash to hose everything down with WD40 to displace any sneaky salt water that could cause problems later.

What does Edo Competition have planned for the Enzo? There's no telling, but we'd guess that even more power is likely part of the recipe. Owner Zahir Rana has already hinted at returning to Race the Base in 2012 with even more power on tap. Thanks for the tip, Keith!

      Yeah, more power is exactly what it needs!

        When you're racing supersonic military jets at Race the Base, it definitely needs it.

      Instead of more power, may I suggest either less power or better brakes, less weight and better control overall? How about a better driver? Just my two cents.

        600hp on any car with road competition tires will slip when there is gravel on the road.

        i love these ridiculous comments from ppl who have probably never driven a car with more than 200hp. if you're driving a car at its limits, you're going to crash it sooner or later. it doesn't even have to be your fault, but it's going to happen and if it doesn't happen you're not trying to be fast. sure, it hurts to see such a masterpiece in a condition like that, but if the owner couldn't afford to fix it, he wouldn't race it! are F1, indycar, DTM, FIA GT masters, LMS or ALMs drivers "bad drivers" cos they crash their cars from time to time?

        It's hilarious how some of you are so naive to think there is a such thing as a "perfect driver" lol.

        And less weight tends to make a car much more lively and twitchy, especially if you are pulling ridiculous hp/ton figures and rock hard suspension.

        Certainly a more observant or circumspect driver. I still say it's the driver's fault when he blows up on gravel or sand or oil in a corner....shouldn't have been driving so fast that he couldn't take the corner no matter what it had on it.

      Accident occured outside of Marystown,crossing the Canning Bridge,turning on Water St e and sliding into the less sensational Narrows. Not the Atlantic.

      I think they are under estimating the damage that took place to that engine. Anybody with the slightest clue about marine engines or jetskis's etc. know that if any water gets in to that engine (and it most certainly did) and sits that engine is done. That whole car needs to be stripped to pieces and essentially rebuilt from the ground up. Salt is one of the most corrosive and abundant minerals on earth and will ruin that engine within 24hrs with surface rust all over the pistons,cylinders,and crank. The next mistake they made was using WD-40, All it does is displace water it doesnt drive moisture out like CRC-656 or equivalent. Bottom line is that car is a write off and should be burned. They should have pulled all the plugs and cranked that engine over till all the water came out and got it started then ran the sh&$ out of it to burn out all the water and salt.

      The one thing I noticed in this Ferrari's premier aquatic debut, were the naturally sculpted, rather large rocks that this automotive Mona Lisa ran over backwards. Perhaps a little damage to that aerodynamically configured under-tray ? I'll never forget sitting in the passenger seat of an Enzo and when I pushed on the" aviation styled' foot rest-I heard this crunching sound. Not Good. Carbon fiber goes crunchy crunchy. Results just in Mother Nature- 1 ; Ferrari Enzo- 0.

      We have the technology to rebuild it.
