Footnotes

  • 'In 1999 we won the manufacturers' championship; in 2000 we added the drivers' championship for the first time in 21 years. We won the last championship of the 20th Century, and the first of the 21st Century. I wanted to celebrate this with a car very much like a Formula 1. After honouring Modena and Maranello, we felt this was the right car to honour the name of our founder.' – Luca di Montezemolo, President of Ferrari.

    Fortuitously, the Enzo's announcement in mid-summer 2002 coincided with Michael Schumacher clinching that year's Formula 1 drivers' championship for Ferrari, his third in a row for the Italian manufacturer. Indeed, the German superstar had been instrumental in the Enzo's development, contributing much valuable input to the refinement of its driving manners.

    Formula 1-derived technology abounded in the Enzo. Its electro-hydraulic six-speed manual transmission had already been seen in other Ferraris and was further refined, changing ratios in a lightning-fast 150 milliseconds, while the steering wheel with its plethora of buttons, lights and switches was guaranteed to make any F1 driver feel at home. Carbon brake discs had been standard F1 equipment for many years, but the Enzo's carbon-ceramic rotors represented a 'first' for a production road car. Double wishbone suspension, or variations thereof, is to be found on virtually every modern supercar, but the Enzo's incorporated pushrod-operated shock absorbers all round, just like a racing car's. In one important respect Ferrari's new sports car was superior to its F1 cousin, incorporating Skyhook adaptive suspension, a type of technology banned from the racetrack since the late 1990s. Constructed entirely from carbon fibre and Kevlar, the monocoque chassis tub was immensely stiff, a necessary requirement of the adaptive suspension.

    It may not look like a Formula 1 car but the Enzo benefited from aerodynamic developments made in motor sport's premier category, enabling it to dispense with the rear wing of its F40 and F50 predecessors, employing a state-of-the-art under-body diffuser instead. Harking back to another landmark Ferrari - a Group 5 sports-racer this time - the doors opened upwards and forwards, just like those of the Tipo 512 of 1970. Although not as stark as that of an out-and-out competition car, the Enzo's interior was more functional than that of previous Ferrari road cars, boasting a mix of red leather trim and carbon-fibre panelling. There was not even a stereo system, the (optional) air conditioning being just about the only concession to creature comforts.

    The heart of any car though, and especially of a Ferrari, is its engine; that of the Enzo being a 60-degree V12, a configuration long associated with the Italian marque and so the natural choice for a model bearing the name of the company's founder. Deploying four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing, and variable length intake trumpets (the latter another Formula 1 spin-off) this 6.0-litre unit produced a mighty 660bhp, 33 horsepower more than its BMW-powered McLaren F1 rival.

    Unleashing all this power in a straight line produced acceleration figures of 0-100km/h (62mph) in a little over 3.5 seconds, with 200km/h (124mph) achievable in 9.5 seconds. Yet applying the brakes hard enough could bring the Enzo back to a standstill in only an additional 5.7 seconds - impressive stuff. The top speed? A little over 350km/h (218mph). Hitherto, Ferrari had shied away from providing 'driver aids' on this type of car but perhaps not surprisingly given this level of performance, opted to fit traction control, anti-lock brakes, and power-assisted steering to the Enzo.

    A mere 349 examples of this 'legend in the making' were scheduled for production at a price of around $650,000 (approximately £450,000) apiece, making it the most expensive Ferrari ever made. As it happened, Ferrari ended up making 400 and, needless to say, had no trouble whatsoever in selling them all, one going to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

    Testing an Enzo at Ferrari's Fiorano track soon after its announcement in 2002, Car magazine's Mark Walton enthused: 'On the move, the Enzo is something else. It sounds absolutely unbelievable – so loud and crisp I can imagine farmers three miles outside Maranello looking up from their fields. It doesn't scream like an F1 car; it howls and bellows like a big-capacity Group C racer...' and that was before he had even sat in the car. Once out on the track, it did not disappoint: 'The Enzo lunges forwards so violently that it feels like it could cause brain damage – a big, muscular punch that makes your stomach lurch and your head reel with blood loss.

    'As if that crushing power wasn't enough, the steering is unbelievably light, yet still pointy and full of feel. It feels so willing, so utterly in your control as you turn in...' Clearly, the next owner of the pristine example offered here has much to look forward to.
    Left-hand drive chassis number '136740' was supplied new on 29th November 2004 via the French Ferrari importer, Charles Pozzi, in Paris. The Enzo was delivered finished in classic Rosso Corso (what else?) with larger-than-standard red-stitched nero seats and red safety harnesses, while wheels taken from the ultra-exclusive track-only FXX are a special feature of this particular car.

    On 27th April 2007, the Ferrari was imported into the UK and serviced by marque specialist Joe Macari until it was later sold to Switzerland. In June 2015, the Enzo returned to the UK and was purchased by the Graypaul dealership, who sold it to the current vendor in February 2016. Only 7,753 kilometres had been covered at time of cataloguing and, as one would expect, the car is presented in excellent condition. It comes complete with owner's handbook, service book, and tools, and is offered with a UK V5C Registration Certificate and the all-important Ferrari Classiche certification.

    As is so often the case with limited edition 'instant classics', Ferraris in particular, values have continued to rise since the Enzo's introduction and show no signs of slowing down. An opportunity not to be missed.
