Rare Ferrari Enzo Prototype for sale

It’s no secret that with a supercar like the Ferrari Enzo, a great deal of time is spent on research and development, with the main goal being to be able to call it one of the brand’s crown jewels. As is the case with these type of exotics, a brand like Ferrari will more often than not build a prototype version of the Enzo that is going to be used in all manners of testing, research, and further development. These prototypes are later modified and fine-tuned to become the end product that is the Enzo. As for these test versions, we probably won’t hear a whole lot about them after the finished product is finally released.

Well, if you’ve ever wondered how the Enzo came to be, a prototype version of the Mother of all Ferraris is now up for sale by Modena Motorsport. Built as a prototype for the Enzo back in 2000, this particular prototype is the only working test car that left the Ferrari factory. It even comes with an authorized factory certification, ensuring that this Enzo test car is completely legit. If that doesn’t spell out ’exotic’, we don’t know what will.

Moreover, it’s got a V12 engine that produces 680 horsepower with a six-speed gearbox, and it only weighs 1,365 kg. While we’re pretty sure that this prototype can hold its own against other exotics, what makes this machine truly remarkable is its exclusivity.

The prototype’s price wasn’t divulged, but we imagine any potential buyer can inquire about it directly at Modena Motorsport. Don’t press your luck, though. A car this rare probably won’t come cheap, so if you have images of plucking this away for less than six-digits, then you’re probably wasting your time.

what are you talking about? v12 engine and 600+hp is not enough? I think this is one of the best production that Ferrari have. And too much power will cause the car to explode!

hmm. Honestly, I don’t like how it looks especially the front. This is a super car and not a racing car, so I’ll be considering the face as well. However, for sure this car will perform well since it will cost in millions! 

The production of Enzo itself costs millions and today is probably cost 3 millions. I actually remember the prototype of this supercar.

Being a prototype, the car is not guaranteed by Ferrari no warranty of roadworthiness is implied or given. Ferrari says it should not be registered for road use.

In practice prototypes such as the M3 are often destroyed, or retained by the factory. The factory has never before offered for auction one of its prototypes.

Given that the production version of Ferrari Enzo is already over a million dollars now, this is probably worth at least 3 million dollars today. It will probably worth more than 10 million dollars 10 or 20 years later.

They’d be a fool if they did. I wouldn’t put more than 50 miles a year on this. In 30 years this will be worth millions!

not really it’s better for them to sell it rather than rot into their garage. and for sure it’s price is higher than the original price before.

Let’s see... the bidding starts at 10.000.000 euros, right? smiley With the money resulted, you can build a factory! smiley

Same old same old red. I was wondering if older ferrari are in other color but red.

When I was a child I had a Testarossa in dark green.... a TOY smiley However I never seen that color in a real Ferrari.

same here I never though that they will sell this one, oh well i think this baby is now getting rotten in their garage so better sell it rather than eaten by termites.
