Rare gloss black Ferrari Enzo to go to auction

Updated: 


An extremely rare Ferrari Enzo is set to be sold at Mecum Auctions' Monterey sale later this month.

The model was one of 399 ever built for the world market, only four of which were finished in the striking gloss Nero paint.

Thanks to this exclusivity, the Enzo is expected to sell for anywhere between $2.5 and $3.5million (£1.9 – £2.6million).

The 2003 model mimics the carmaker's infamous Black Stallion logo, with a black leather interior alongside its dark paintjob.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre, Formula One-derived V12, the Enzo delivers a huge 660hp through its rear wheels.

This allows it to accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, powering on to an impressive 218mph.

The Enzo was the first road-going Ferrari to feature vented carbon ceramic disc brakes, which allowed it to perform the shortest braking distances ever recorded.

It was also the first the first car to have all its computer control systems – engine and transmission, suspension, traction control, brake force distribution and ABS – integrated to deliver optimum performance at all times.

So sought-after was the model that Ferrari was requested to build an extra 50 units on top of the planned 349, bringing the total number produced to 399.

It is unknown whether this US-specification model, serial no. ZFFCW56A830133927, was one of the original 349.

Following a new clutch and major service by Ferrari of Los Angeles last month, the Enzo was awarded a Ferrari Classiche certification of authenticity.
