Yes, the Enzo Ferrari is generally considered to be street legal in the United States. A confirmed total of 339 of the vehicles were produced between 2002 and 2004, but there may have been more made.

The Enzo Ferrari sells for about $1.9 million, making it one of the most expensive cars in the world. Other notable high-performance cars that are street legal include the Pagani Zonda F, Koenigsegg CCX, SSC Aero and McLaren F1.

In order for a car to be considered street legal, it must meet specific requirements related to traffic laws and safety. In the United States, each state can set its own laws dictating what constitutes a street legal vehicle, and many of these laws are the same or equivalent from state to state. Most pertain to whether a car has basic components essential for safe driving, such as headlights, turn signals, a windshield, a hood, brakes and bumpers.

Even some vehicles that are not traditionally used for road driving, like golf carts, can be modified to comply with these laws. In California, however, cars have to meet certain standards related to how much exhaust they emit, which may cause some vehicles legal in other states to become illegal there.
