it is a design feature taken from the f1 cars and top fuel dragsters. In those cars that run race fuel crashes can often lead to a fire. the idea is to seperate the driver from the engine area that sometime catches fire thus eliminating serious burns because they can not escape through the crumpled doors

For top fuel maybe, but for F1 and indy cars the idea is to dissipate energy as BDA and N4SPD noted. The Enzo is basically a 2 seater F1 car, designed with the same features ... and I'm not positive, but I think the fuel cell is located in the tunnel between the seats ... or is that just the FordGT? :idunno:
