Instantly becoming the most desirable automobile on sale from the moment it was introduced in 2002, the Enzo put competitors like Porsche and Lamborghini on notice, showing that Ferrari was still king when it came to hypercars. Using the best possible technology derived directly from the company’s highly successful Formula One program, the Enzo brought race car performance to a platform suitable for use on the road by the privileged few. Its performance was truly sensational, and it could sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, leading onwards to a top speed of 350 km/h.

Any Enzo is a rare and desirable car, but this particular example certainly stands out from the pack. While the majority of Enzos were painted in traditional Rosso Corsa, some cars were painted other colours, most notably Nero and Giallo Modena, and a handful of cars were painted Argento and Blu Pozzi as well. However, it is believed that this car is the only example to sport Rosso F1 2007 paintwork. Originally delivered new finished in Rosso Corsa over a black leather interior, the car was shipped back to Carrozzeria Zanasi, just around the corner from the Ferrari factory in Maranello, and fully stripped and repainted in this brilliant shade. In recent years, Carrozzeria Zanasi has been tasked with applying out of range colours to new Ferraris, and as such, there could be no better place to have the car repainted.

Some other cosmetic modifications have been undertaken to enhance this Enzo’s s overall visual appeal. The original wheels were painted black with a matching red rim, the taillights were slightly tinted and racing harnesses in Rosso have been fitted to both the driver and passenger seat. Presenting in excellent condition throughout, the car has been driven just under 8,400 km from new.

Ferrari’s last limited-edition, mid-engined hypercar graced with a naturally aspirated V-12, the Enzo got Ferrari off to an excellent start in the 21st century and quickly became the gold standard of which all other hypercars would be measured against in the early 2000s. Offering the best available Formula One technology at the time rolled into a road-going package, the Enzo is truly a blast to drive and enjoy, and a car that can still keep up with many high-performance sports cars being produced today. Refinished in Rosso F1 2007 by Zanasi, this is truly a unique example to purchase an Enzo that stands out from the pack for all the right reasons.
