"The new millennium began with Ferrari for an incredible period of competitiveness in the world of racing, in fact Formula 1 has really offered the company an authentic laboratory for advanced research in recent years. To create a synergy between our success and the key role of the race, I decided that this car would represent the best of our technologies, and that it should be dedicated to our founder, who always believed that our road cars should be based on what we learn from competition. We are very proud to announce the name of this new model as Ferrari Enzo," said Luca di Montezemolo at the launch of the Enzo.
In line with the limited series of Maranello, the 288 GTO, the F40 and the F50, the Enzo, which came as a successor to all the formers, was the showcase for the latest in Ferrari technology. Even more than its predecessors, Enzo appeared as pure concept, an extreme sports car without compromise, benefiting from a direct and contiguous transfer of technology from competition to road car. The stylistic theme developed by Pininfarina was to create a clear visual analogy between a Formula 1 car and the Enzo. It was a risky and daring bet and was, in our opinion, very successful. In particular the front, with its characteristic nose with air inlets on either side was a clear interpretation of the nose of the F1 car. Same at the side of the car, with a narrower portion, convex that one was immediately reminded of the belly of the car. A very thorough study in aerodynamics created appendages such as the rear spoiler. The gullwing doors opened and closed with assistance. Extensive use of composite materials for the body/chassis kept the weight to a very acceptable level and gave the car exceptional weight-to-power ratio of 2.1 kg/hp. Many elements were made from honeycomb sandwich aluminum and carbon fiber. Inside the car, carbon fiber was used both as a visible element as well as functional. Most controls were grouped together on the steering wheel as on the F1.
The heart of the Enzo was a fabulous V12, a descendant of a lineage going back to the 125 F1 of 1947. It was completely redesigned taking into account again, the learnings from competition, such as the hemispherical roof of the combustion chamber with four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing borrowed from F1. The power of 660bhp was exceptional, with power per liter of more than 110bhp, which had never been seen on a project as large a displacement engine unit as that of the Enzo (about 5000cc) and was the first example of a fully integrated control systems for the vehicle. The engine, gearbox, suspension, ABS/ASR and aerodynamic characteristics guaranteed optimal performance and safety of use. The car was equipped by a system measuring the tyre pressure (it was far from the first Lamborghini Miura tyres that were only guaranteed for 1 minute at the maximum speed of 280 km/hour.)
Our collector of supercars from Monaco ordered his Enzo from Charles Pozzi in Levallois. Chassis no. 132053 entered production on 7 March 2003 and was completed on 3 April, then delivered on 17 April that year. In order to keep the same colour for all the cars in his collection, he chose the traditional 'Rosso Corsa' (DS322) paint, combined with superb bucket seats trimmed in red leather, complemented by black floor mats. As the service book in the wallet containing the car's different manuals indicates, the Enzo was serviced by Ferrari Monaco on 30 December 2014 at 4698km, then on 10 January 2019 at 4738km. Today, it has covered only 4760km from new and is in exceptional condition, with the shine which can only be found on things that are brand-new. This example has been used with the utmost care, enabling it to remain in impressive condition and conferring even greater value on the Enzo's technical perfection. The battery charge maintainer, tool kit and even the additional aluminium accelerator pedal supplied when the car was new are still present. In addition to its qualities as an aesthetic and mechanical masterpiece, its rarity and its prestigious model name, this example has a clear history and a mileage among the lowest you could hope to find ... It is a unique opportunity.
Impact on VAT: As the vehicle has been driven less than 6,000 kilometers, it can be considered “as new” for VAT purposes in certain European countries. Please
