The final and 400th example of the Ferrari Enzo ever produced has just sold for an extraordinary $6.05 million at RM Sotheby’s ongoing ‘The Pinnacle Portfolio’ auction. Estimates indicated it would sell for between $4 million and $6 million.
Ferrari initially planned to produce just 399 examples of the iconic Enzo. However, the marque decided on producing one final example and created it as a gift to His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Unsurprisingly, the Pope decided on auctioning off the car with the proceeds benefitting victims of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami in Southeast Asia.
As you’d expect, the 400th Enzo is unique from all others. For starters, it is one of just a handful of Enzos painted in Rosso Scuderia while its rear spoiler is also made solely from bare carbon fibre. Elsewhere, the interior combines Nero leather with Cuoio leather while matching Cuoio-coloured inserts are also featured across the seats.
After being sold in June 2005 at Ferrari’s Maranello factory, the car has remained in the United States. It has covered just 179 km with its last service being performed by Ferrari of Central Florida in December last year.
