2003 Ferrari Enzo Ferrari

Its design is pure haute couture, a cutting edge style that dances on the line between art and automobile

In 1998, only a few years after the introduction of the groundbreaking F50, Ferrari began planning its newest limited-production supercar. The criteria for this car was similar to those which spawned the previous Ferrari supercars: The new car would need to push the envelope of technological innovation, it must be impressive both in its design and performance, and it must bear a kinship to Ferrari’s Formula One racing program.

For a modern production Ferrari to carry the name of the company’s founder, it would need to be a very special car indeed. The Enzo was so special, in fact, that it prompted the famed designer Sergio Pininfarina to state that the car was the third quantum leap in the history of Ferrari design-the first two being the 250 SWB and the Dino. The Enzo is an outstanding expression of a modern dual-purpose sports car and the epitome of that philosophy. Since its introduction, the Enzo has more than lived up to its esteemed name.

Amazingly, in the five years since this Ferrari Enzo left the factory, it has been driven sparingly, accumulating 429 miles at the time of cataloging. In 2005, this car was added to one of the country’s finest car collections, where it has been preserved in nearly showroom-fresh condition. Since that time, although little mechanical work has been done, the clutch was replaced in fall 2006. While we always recommend servicing prior to use, unlike many of these supercars, this Enzo has not suffered from hard driving and is, for all intents and purposes, a new car that is simply awaiting an enthusiastic new owner. As would be expected of such a low-mileage example, this Enzo retains all of its factory-delivered books, tools, and accessories.
