Every few years, Ferrari has a habit of unleashing their rendition of the ultimate sports car. The Ferrari F40 appeared in 1988 and set the world on fire with it's twin-turbocharged V8 engine and brash personality. This would be the last car that Enzo Ferrari would personally approve before his death. Then came the Ferrari F50 in the mid 1990s. This was supposed to be a sort of F1 car from the street, as it had a 4.7 liter V12 engine derived from the 3.5 liter V12 used in their F1 car. It also featured an innovative carbon fibre tub with alloy subassemblies. In the end, this car was derided for being not quite as good as the F40 that preceded it.
In 2002, along came the Enzo. Ferrari had to get this one right, as it was named in honor of their founder. So right off the bat, people expected big things. At first, one could see right away it's more lithe lines hinted at something a bit more serious than the wide, open roofed F50. A new 6.0 liter V12 could be found amidships, sharing the architecture with the 4.2 liter V8 engine found in the Maserati Quattroporte. At the start, 349 Enzos were planned, but the company added another 50 cars to the production schedule after demand eclipsed supply. A rare move by Ferrari. One more Enzo would be built in 2005, bringing the total count to 400. That Enzo would be given to the Vatican and was auctioned for charity. The car brought $1.1 million.
This Enzo for sale in Texas has just over 4,000 miles on the clock and is one of the few not to be painted in the usual Rosso Corsa.
A very rare 2003 Ferrari Enzo. This very special Enzo is one of few built in Ferrari's Giallo Modena (yellow) with Nero (black) leather. U.S. car. An absolutely necessary choice for any true Ferrari collector. The Factory options are yellow faced gauges, black leather large racing daytona sport seats with carbon fiber seat surrounds, multi-functional carbon fiber steering wheel, black carpets with yellow embroidery, carbon fiber interior panels and trim, Ferrari's legendary F1 transmission and black brake calipers. A careful 4,077 documented miles have been placed on this meticulously cared for example. Two master keys, original books, luggage w/covers, tool kit, tire inflater, tow hook, leather owners manual cover, master key code card, service records and floor mats. Do not miss this opportunity to own a super rare Ferrari that stands out from the few existing Enzos left in the world.
This Enzo is undoubtedly one of the most expensive cars we've seen here at CICFS. This is a car that will never be cheap, just due to the low production numbers and reputation which surrounds it. Currently, Enzos that come up for sale can be seen changing hands for between $900,000 and $1.3 million. At almost $1.7 million, we're above that mark. Formula 1 Champion Jensen Button's Enzo sold at auction last year for $1.6 million. Since this car doesn't have a special history behind it, I'm guessing the seller will probably have to come down a few hundred thousand dollars before it sells.
