The car is okay, but hopefully its new owner knows how to properly drive it. Enzo clutches aren’t cheap

When you’re trying to sell off a Ferrari Enzo, specifically one of four in a specific color, the last thing you want is for it to start smoking as it rolls up to the auction pad. But, that’s exactly what happened to the model you’re about to see in the video above. Most likely it isn’t anything incredibly serious – at least nothing electrical anyway. It’s likely the clutch burning up a little, which is what happens and somewhat common when you don’t know how to handle or drive an automated manual transmission like that found in the Enzo.

Ultimately, the car appears to be okay. It was pushed the rest of the way to the auction block, where it sold for a decent $2.15 million despite the troublesome smoke signals shooting from the engine cover. The car was even able to leave the auction site under its own power, as you see it carefully pull away at the end of the video. For what it’s worth, this is a video that you want to turn up the volume a bit for. We get to hear a pretty nice rumble from the Enzo’s 6.0-liter V-12.

For the record, the Enzo started out in 2003 at $659,330. It was only produced in 299 examples, and this $2.15 million price tag is the highest I’ve seen in auctions so far. With that said, click play and enjoy the short video.

As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
