Sotheby's Holding 24-Hour Auction for Only White Ferrari Enzo in Existence

A special 24-hour online auction will be held on June 29 for one of the rarest cars in the world. The white Ferrari Enzo will be offered by RM Sotheby's without a reserve.

Chassis 133023 is one of fewer than 20 "Extrampaionario" cars that was finished in a non-standard color. Its Bianco Avus exterior paint color is the only example of that cohort and the full production run of the Enzo.

A Nero leather interior complements the paint. Rossi Corsa instruments and extra-large carbon fiber bucket seats come complete with 3D black cloth inserts.

Ferrari completed this Enzo on May 22, 2003, 15 years after the death of its namesake, Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the Ferrari automobile company and racing team. His son, Dino, inspired the name of another of the automaker's sports cars.

The Ferrari Enzo was developed in 2002 using technology gleaned from the brand's Formula One program. Every Enzo has a carbon fiber body, an F1-style automated-shift manual transmission, 15-inch Brembo ceramic disc brakes and active aerodynamics. Its small, adjustable rear spoiler works to provide the car with a maximum of 1,290 pound-force of downforce at top speed.

The sports car is powered by a V12 engine that was the first of a new generation of power plants by Ferrari. It is similar to the V8 that was used in the Maserati Quattroporte during the time, only larger.

It rides on 19-inch wheels.

Just 399 reservations were allocated when the car was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 2002. The car achieved sold out status before the first delivery.

However, more than 399 were made. The actual production number is 493.

The 400th production example was donated to the Vatican to aid in the Catholic's church's charitable efforts. That model was sold at auction by Sotheby's in 2005 for $1.1 million USD.

One of three production mules of the Enzo was sold alongside it, bringing in $236,300 USD.

Sotheby's has had great success with Ferrari sales this year. The three most expensive cars sold at the company's Paris 2022 auction were all by the automaker.

A 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO went for $3,907,200 USD and the hammer fell on a 1996 Ferrari F50 at $3,875,500 USD. Those prices are amongst the most ever paid for those vehicles.

In 2021, a 2016 Ferrari LaFerrari sold for $2,876,760 at the company's London auction.

The car heading to auction in June was authenticated by Prancing Hrose experts in Maranello, receiving its Ferrari Classiche certification in November 2012.

An authorized Ferrari dealer in Hong Kong recently fully serviced the vehicle.
