The World’s Only White Ferrari Enzo Is A True Unicorn Supercar
Originally owned by a mysterious billionaire, this hallowed “White Enzo” is headed to auction.
For many exotic car aficionados, the Enzo is likely the Prancing Horse envisioned when “Ferrari” is uttered.
The era-defining supercar, named in honor of the marque’s race-obsessed founder, created a bridge between 1990s-era F50 and 2010s-era hybrid LaFerrari. But even the most well-connected Ferrari-philes have certainly never seen one in factory white.
That’s because the 20 “Extracampionario” cars finished in a non-standard color were only offered to Ferrari’s wealthiest and most loyal customers. This one, chassis 133023, is the sole Enzo painted in Bianco Avus white out of the 400 Enzos produced in the aughts.
The interior does include flashes of the Ferrari’s quintessential Rossa Corsa red on the instruments, which contrast with Nero black leather interior upholstery. For much of its life, chassis 133023 was owned by a private German-Swiss billionaire who seldom actually got behind the wheel.
Like Ferrari did originally, RM Sotheby’s is offering chassis 133023 to its most discerning clients without reserve.
The auction house has more details on provenance:
The car first made its way via Ferrari Central Europe in Wiesbaden, Germany to Symbol Automobiles in Matran, Switzerland, where it was sold to its first owner, a very private German-Swiss billionaire. Used minimally during those early years, the car spent much of its time drawing crowds while dressing the window of the boutique supplying dealer in Matran, before being exported to Hong Kong in 2011.
Unregistered during its time in Hong Kong due to its left-hand-drive configuration, the Enzo served as a cornerstone of a significant Ferrari collection in recent years, and its odometer reading stands at just 9,600 km at the time of cataloging. As with many of the finest examples of the Prancing Horse, this phenomenal Enzo is recognized by Maranello with Ferrari Classiche certification awarded in November 2012. Further, the car has just received a full annual service at the Ferrari authorized dealer in Hong Kong.
Underneath is an enlarged version of the preceding F50’s 65-degree V12 engine—displacement grew from 4.7 to 6.0 liters for this generation of Ferrari’s high-revving 12-pot. With the help of racy components such as Nikasil-lined cylinder walls, titanium connecting rods, and a low-end torque-boosting telescoping intake manifold, the Enzo’s engine originally sent 651 horsepower through an F1 era-derived six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The resulting zero-to-60 mph time was clocked at 3.3 seconds on the way to a 218-mph top speed.
Building on a carbon fiber and Nomex chassis, designer Ken Okuyama mimicked the shape of an open-wheel racer with a road car skin extending over the fenders and cockpit. Wind tunnel-tested carbon fiber and Kevlar panels create an air-cutting profile, while 19-inch alloy wheels anchored by 15-inch Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes provide stopping power. Lamborghini-esque scissor doors finalize the Enzo’s exotic appearance.
Bidding for chassis 133023, nicknamed “The White Enzo,” kicks off on June 29. It surely fetch seven figures.
