Any automobile named after the founder of the company is usually quite a special car, & the Ferrari Enzo is undoubtedly the pinnacle of this revered group of automobiles.
In the course of its history Ferrari occasionally released a limited edition of extreme road-going sports cars that incorporate the leading technological and performance-oriented achievements of their era.
Named after Enzo Ferrari, ‘Il Commendatore’, the Enzo (F60 as referred to internally within Ferrari) was a technological tour de force when launched back in 2002.
Featuring for the 1st time on a Ferrari road car, Carbon ceramic brakes, much of the technology behind the Enzo was drawn directly from their hugely successful F1 campaigns, utilizing an advanced composite body, with a carbon fibre & aluminium honeycomb sandwich chassis.. Powered by an all new 6.0Ltr V12engine, producing an astonishing 660 bhp, mated directly to the slickest shifting F1 gearbox of the day.
Our car, offered here today, was an original Ferrari UK supplied vehicle. Available by invitation only, the large history file records our car as the initial order confirmation is placed, & all subsequent correspondence discussing the specification, anticipated delivery times, factory visits for seat fittings etc is logged between the client & Ferrari UK at the time. Accompanying this correspondence, are photographs of the client during his factory visits to see the progress of his car during the build process. Originally ordered in Rosso Corsa DS322 with Nero 8500 Hide, 4 point harnesses in Rosso & Rosso instruments. Subsequently at the seat fitting in Feb 2004, the order was amended to Rosso 112806 interior, with additional Rosso under dash trim & door pulls.
Delivered new by Maranello Concessionaires Ltd, to the 1st keeper in April 2004, the 1st owner kept the car until 2011, when the car was sold through HR Owen, by our Managing Director, Tim Kearns, who recalls the test drive vividly !. This was to a longstanding & valued client, who kept the car to present day.
The car is offered today, with all of its original equipment, handbooks, factory luggage, car cover & keys, & has covered only 13,000 Kilometres from new.
A truly rare opportunity to acquire a very original example of the fabled Ferrari Enzo, with a superbly detailed provenance. The car comes direct from a recent HR Owen service, & is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.
In our opinion, not only the best value, but also one of the best Enzo’s available in today’s marketplace.
