A Ferrari Enzo, regardless of mileage or condition, is worth any serious car collector’s attention, as only 400 examples of the Italian marque’s aughts-era flagship eponymously honoring the brand’s founder were produced. But with just 2,687 miles on the odometer, this 2003 Ferrari Enzo is sure to turn bidders’ heads at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monterey auction.

Much has been said about the Enzo’s V12-powered lineage, which was preceded by the equally sought-after F50, 250 GTO and 250 Testa Rossa—two of which appear on Maxim’s list of history’s most iconic Ferraris.

But the Enzo was devised during a particularly historic period for Ferrari. The Italian automaker’s fabled F1 team had just won the 1999, 2000, and 2001 Manufacturers’ Championships and the 2000 and 2001 Drivers’ Championships. Ferrari’s No. 1 driver, Michael Schumacher was at the height of his dominance during the Enzo’s development.

F1 tech accordingly influenced the iconic supercar. As RM Sotheby’s notes, Pininfarina designer Ken Okuyama created an external shape that mimicked that of an open-wheel race car wrapped in a skin covering the fenders and cockpit.

The carbon fiber and Kevlar body panels were finalized in a wind tunnel to ensure an aerodynamic profile that approaches perfection. Other weight-saving measures included the implementation of a carbon fiber and Nomex honeycomb chassis tub that tips the scales at just 200 pounds, as well as aluminum sub-frames.

With the help of racy components such as Nikasil-lined cylinder walls, titanium connecting rods, and a torque-boosting telescoping intake manifold, the Enzo’s 6.0-liter V12 originally sent 651 horsepower through an F1-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.

RM Sotheby’s has further details on this particular car’s provenance:

This Enzo left the factory in November 2003 as a US-spec example finished in the desirable color combination of Rosso Corsa over a Pelle Rossa interior. It was sold new through Al-Tayer Motors LLC in Dubai to a resident of Dubai on 9 March 2004. A few months later in May, the Ferrari was in the United States, eventually making its way to Utah where it would remain in a collection for a few years.

By the late 2000s the Enzo changed hands, falling under the ownership of a resident of Northern California. In February of 2009 it was purchased by its most recent owner having covered just 954 miles from new. This gentleman would go on to own the car for 14 years, during which time the Enzo received its Ferrari Classiche Certification Red Book in 2020, confirming the car retains its numbers-matching engine and gearbox.

This Nevada-based collector entrusted the specialists at Ferrari-Maserati of Las Vegas to service the Enzo during his ownership, with its most recent service taking place within the last 300 miles.

Having covered just 2,687 miles from new, this stunning time capsule example is accompanied by its original owner’s manuals and warranty book with pouch and flashlight, tools, tire inflator, battery charger, service records, and coveted Ferrari Classiche Red Book.

This 2003 Ferrari Enzo fetched $4,075,000 million at RM Sotheby’s Monterey.
