The Ferrari Enzo is one of the rarest cars the Maranello-based marque has ever produced, creating just 493 examples. However, only one left the factory in “Bianco Avus,” and now this one-off example is heading to auction thanks to RM Sotheby’s.
Designed by the then-head of Pininfarina, Ken Okuyama, the Enzo followed on from Ferrari‘s illustrious lineage of halo cars such as the F40 and F50. Its design is as dramatic today as when it first launched in 2003, with plenty of Formula 1 nods inspiring the car’s angular aesthetic. At the front, we find a pointed nose that spreads to create the wide haunches that curve over the fenders, while in the middle are a set of butterfly doors. At the rear, a set of quad pipes are split by a carbon fiber diffuser that houses an F1-inspired brake light, while copious amounts of glass offer a view into the engine bay.
Here lies a naturally-aspirated V12 engine that produces 651 HP and 485 lb-ft of torque, which uses an automated manual F1-inspired transmission to send the power to the rear wheels. The result is a 0-60 MPH time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 221 MPH.
This particular example is one of just 20 “Extracampionario” cars ever made, and the only one in “Bianco Avus.” To qualify to purchase an “Extracampionario” edition, you have to be one of Ferrari’s most discerning clients and favored highly by the company. “Nero” leather decorates the interior alongside lashings of carbon fiber, sitting alongside “Rosso Corsa” instruments and extra-large carbon fiber bucket seats complete with rare 3D black cloth inserts.
Bidding opens on June 29 and will be live for just 24 hours. Expect the Enzo to fetch millions.
In related news, it’s expected that Ferrari will become predominantly electric by 2026.
