2002 Ferrari Enzo Costs Twice More Than a Brand-New Ferrari

, ,

When the Ferrari Enzo was released a few years shy of the new millennium, it was able to gain a considerable amount of popularity. Ironically, the company only manufactured 400 units, which is 99 units less than the company’s newest edition of the Ferrari LaFerrari.

During the time that Fusion Luxury Motors, a Los Angeles–based luxury car dealership, placed the model up for sale, it was only a matter of time before dedicated car collectors went asking for the selling price. In 2003, the Enzo went up for sale for a cool $1,000,000 during auctions, but now that it has become so incredibly rare, Fusion Luxury Motors placed the price tag at $2,888,000.

One of the models was sold to boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. , a longtime customer of Fusion Luxury Motors. It is reported that he stops by the shop every month to check out on new models. The Ferrari Enzo was quick to catch his eye because of its rarity and the fact that its specifications are more than impressive.

Its  F140 B V12 engine launched a new era for Ferrari as it entered its brand-new Formula One phase. Even with the many years that passed, the Enzo Ferrari continues to be one of the most sought-after vehicles in the market as an inspection of its engine proves that it performs just as well as it did before.

The Enzo is actually a rear mid-engined car. Its F140B 65° V12 engine comes with 4 valves per cylinder, dual overhead cams, and variable valve timing.  This allows the Enzo to deliver 651 hp at 7,800 rpm and 485 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm.

Overall, the Enzo really delivers with its impressive exterior, which includes features such as 9-inch (483 mm) wheels and 15-inch (381 mm) Brembo disc brakes. The vehicle can run up to 60 mph in 3.14 seconds and can reach 100 mph in 6.6 seconds. Its current selling price can go higher in the years to come as it has been one of the most critically acclaimed models Ferrari has ever released.
