11 years after its debut, the Ferrari Enzo continues to be one of the most sought-after supercars. It’s no wonder then that the Italian sports car frequently serves as a source of inspiration for builders of replica models.
The Enzo replica you see in the photos is actually based on a Ferrari model, the F430, itself a favorite for makers of replicas. In the listing posted on eBay, the owner explains that the conversion brings a “million dollar look without the excessive maintenance or insurance.”
You can decide for yourself if that is the case by taking a look at the photos, but if you care for a personal opinion, I think it looks awkward, especially when viewed from the side. The car has different proportions than the Enzo – it is too tall and it lacks the original car’s planted look. The front end of the car also looks weird because of the sharper and raised nose.
Anyway, the seller says the exterior body is made of carbon fiber with an aluminum frame with features including single lug OEM Enzo wheels, F1 transmission, power windows, air conditioning and air bags.
The Israel-based owner says the car has covered just 4,000 miles (6,437 km) from new and has been properly maintained by Ferrari authorized shops, with no issues whatsoever. The powertrain is the F430’s standard 4.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 producing 490PS (483hp).
Starting bid on eBay was a whopping $400,000, but for some reason the ad says bidding has ended. For that kind of money, you can have a real Enzo, albeit a damaged one. Or you can buy about four used F430s…
