Edo Competition presents the insane Enzo XX Evolution which is now tuned to produce a whacky 840hp (618kW). We've now run out of words.

It was less than two months ago that Edo Competition revealed the Enzo XX to an unsuspecting public. The tuner has now gone back to the same car and made improvements. How does one improve on 800hp? Can one? Apparently yes.

Meet the new edo Enzo XX Evolution, the next step in the process. Power is up and weight is down, a sure recipe for good performance numbers. By increasing the Enzo's 6.0-litre V12 cubic capacity to 6.3-litre, installing new camshafts, modified cylinder heads, titanium valve spring retainers and connecting rods, high flow catalytic converters, mufflers and air filters and new high performance exhaust headers edo did just this.

A lot more was done like improving the transmission's shift times to 60 milliseconds - 20 milliseconds less than an F1 car and using lighter drive shafts.

In the end 100kg (220 lbs) was shed and extra horses were brought into the stable. Now the car makes 618kW (840hp) and maximum torque of (575 ft-lb) is available at 5,800rpm. Moreover removing the muffler frees an extra 20 horses (15kW).

Performance figures are 0 - 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, 200km/h (124mph) in 9 seconds and 300km/h in 19 seconds. Top speed is said to go beyond the 390km/h (242mph) point thus presenting a real challenge to the 407km/h recorded by the Veyron under the skilled tutelage of one James May.

Exterior changes include a new retractable rear wing, new LED taillights and a new rear skirt with winglets.

Edo Competition will throw in a test day with an instructor and full hospitality package for those who choose to convert their prized Enzos.
