It looked like the radiators on the side were mounted rather high, as if they needed space below them. Having seen the McLaren intakes, now I am pretty certain the "new Enzo" will have similar thing going on. This may answer the questions about finding downforce if the lower intakes are all for active aero.
Interesting observation.
