If you are suggesting (by your excitement) that the M3 hung with the 599, then the 599 owners wasn't racing or was just pacing you to give you a hard time.

The 599 has similiar trap speeds as a Corvette ZR-1 (around 130-131 mph).
The Enzo trapped at 133 or so.

Get a G-Power Supercharger and put it at 9 psi and you might be within a few car lengths, but would still be behind as I'd guess you'd trap in the 128 mph range.
At the standard 6 psi it's probably in the 124-125 psi range (ZO6 neighborhood).
