Who said cars aren't good investments?
Before the LaFerrari formed part of the hypercar holy trinity alongside the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, the Enzo was Ferrari's flagship supercar. Its F1-inspired styling was striking and its performance was outstanding for the time. Launched in 2002, the Ferrari Enzo was named after the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari, signifying its importance.
Only 399 examples left the factory between 2002 and 2004, so whenever one goes on sale, you know it's going to fetch a fortune. Last year, a Ferrari Enzo sold for $2.64 million, setting a new auction record at the time. But it hasn't taken long for that record to be beaten.
When it was new, the Ferrari Enzo will have set you back $650,000, but someone paid a staggering $3.8 million for this special 2003 example sold by Legendary Motor Car Company, setting a new record in the used Enzo market. What makes this Enzo so special is that it's painted in a rare Rosso Scuderia finish, the same color used by Ferrari's F1 team at the time.
Since it was built, it has only clocked up 356 miles, so we're hoping the new owner drives it rather than keep it in storage to appreciate in value. Technically, however, this isn't the most valuable Rosso Scuderia Enzo ever made.
Earlier this year, another example finished in the F1-inspired color sold at auction for over $6 million, making it the most expensive Enzo ever. That one was the last Enzo to roll off the production line and was previously owned by Pope John Paul II and was technically still considered new as it is believed it hadn't actually been driven.
Powering the Ferrari Enzo is a 6.0-liter V12 producing 651 horsepower and 485 lb-ft of torque, which was sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed automated manual transmission. That may seem tame compared to modern electric hypercars like the Lotus Evija and Rimac Nevera, but this was phenomenal back in 2002, and a naturally-aspirated hypercar will always have a special allure.
