For sale: a Japanese Ferrari Enzo with 141 miles on the clock and factory wrapping
Rare Noughties hypercar wearing an ever rarer colour is up for grabs
Of the 400 Ferrari Enzos built – 399 for the public, one for Pope John Paul II – just nine cars came out of the factory wearing the ‘Argento Nürburgring 101/C’ colour. And of those nine cars, only one would complement that colour with a tan ‘Cuoio’ leather.
Unsurprisingly, this is that very car. It’s being offered by RM Sotheby’s ‘sealed’ programme, and when it comes to exotica like this, it’s all in the spec. Handily for the next owner of this low-milage wonder, this Enzo’s spec trumps all others because it’s quite literally still wearing the wrapper. It’s that fresh.
First delivered new to Japan in 2003, RM Sotheby’s tells us this particular Enzo “has remained largely out of sight for much of its life”. Indeed it’s never even been registered for the road, covering just 141 miles (227km) since delivery. And most of those miles were completed back in Maranello.
As such, the naturally-aspirated V12 masterpiece still wears some of its factory protective packaging – plastic on the door sills, tape around the ignition key, plastic covering the pedals. Naturally you get all the manuals and covers and spares and three-piece luggage suite.
One suspects it’s time to put that luggage – and indeed that V12 – to some use, not least because the Enzo remains one of the finest Ferrari hypercars ever built. And this one, with its F1-tech, carbon fibre body and otherworldly soundtrack, remains one of the rarest.
