LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 2003 Ferrari Enzo
As the 21st century dawned, Maranello brass began considering the next installment in Ferrari’s lineage of elite hypercars, which had most recently passed from the F40 twin-turbo V-8 of the late 1980s to the curvaceous V-12–powered F50 of the late ’90s. As the cities of Maranello and Modena had both already been honored with recent road car models, the decision was made to commemorate Enzo Ferrari himself with the latest prestige model.
The resulting Enzo was loaded with advanced technology developed through Formula 1 competition, including the 65° tipo F140 V-12 engine, which, at almost six litres in displacement, was the largest Ferrari motor built since the 712 Can Am race car. Coupled to a six-speed, dual-clutch, paddle-shifted transaxle, the monstrous unit developed 651 hp and 485 foot-pounds of torque, rocketing the Enzo to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and an outrageous top speed of 218 mph.
After debuting at the Paris Salon in October 2002, the Enzo was favoured with production to be capped at just 400 examples, ensuring a rarity that has only served to further distinguish the unique model. Capable of blistering power and performance, and bearing futuristic aesthetics that leave an indelible impression, the Enzo continues to evolve as a distinct representation of its era, an unforgettable time when the Scuderia Ferrari’s Michael Schumacher racked up victories at a pace since unequaled.
The Enzo offered here for sale was produced for the USA market and delivered new to The Auto Gallery in Woodland Hills in California. It was factory ordered in ultra-rare Rosso Scuderia which is the same color used by the Ferrari F1 team that year. Only a small handful of Enzo’s were ever painted in this color and were delivered to the likes of; Michael Schumacher, Jean Todt (CEO Of Ferrari), and the last Enzo produced which was given to the Pope himself. Since it was built, the car has only traveled a mere 353 miles and has been collector owned and maintained ever since. It remains in absolute showroom new condition and certainly among the finest examples anywhere. It is also still complete with its original handbooks including the important service/warranty supplement, pouch, original window stickers, luggage, spare key (still in the delivery plastic), car cover and OEM battery charger.
Special cars like these hardly come on the market and among them are usually examples with higher mileage. It’s not very often that you come across an Enzo with delivery mileage, showroom new condition and with this amount of documentation finished in this much sought after color. If you are looking to add one of Maranello’s best to your collection, look no further!
