One-off white Ferrari Enzo head to auction

The only Ferrari Enzo finished in white, at minimum from the manufacturing facility, will be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s in a 24-hour on line auction starting June 29.

Ferrari built just 400 Enzos, such as 20 “Extracampionario” cars finished in nonstandard shades, in accordance to the auction property. Section of the latter team, this car—chassis 133023—is the only Enzo to go away the manufacturing unit in Bianco Avus white.

Done on May well 22, 2003, the white Enzo also characteristics a Nero (black) leather inside with Rosso Corsa (racing red) instruments and additional-large carbon-fiber bucket seats with 3D black fabric inserts.

The Enzo was Ferrari’s flagship supercar of the early 2000s, selecting up the place the F40 and F50 left off. It showcased a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and paddle-shifted 6-speed transmission—both of which have been quite novel in supercars at the time.

A naturally aspirated 6.-liter V-12 produces 650 hp and 485 lb-ft of torque, with generate heading to the rear wheels only. The mid-mounted engine gets the Enzo from -62 mph in 3.6 seconds, and on to a top velocity of 217 mph. Those people figures appear to be considerably less spectacular in comparison to present-day supercars, but the Enzo was among the quickest production automobiles of its period of time.

The Enzo’s monocoque and motor had been also made use of for the Maserati MC12, albeit with in depth modifications to make the MC12 ideal for racing. Ferrari also generated a keep track of-only Enzo derivative—the FXX.

Chassis 133023 received Ferrari Classiche certification in November 2012, and just received a entire once-a-year company at a Ferrari-licensed dealer in Hong Kong, according to the auction listing. Even a wrecked-and-restored Enzo fetched $1.75 million at auction in 2016, so it is really probably this car will catch the attention of a quite higher bid.

Ferrari ultimately released an Enzo successor in the sort of the LaFerrari, which has come to be a collectible in its individual correct. And it can be just about time for Ferrari to launch one more flagship supercar. Ferrari tends to launch these each individual 10 several years, and it truly is been about a ten years considering that the LaFerrari debuted. We have even noticed a opportunity LaFerrari successor out testing.
