Crashed Ferrari Enzo Rebuilt, Heading To Auction

What is gloss black, was torn in two and is expected to sell for upwards of $2.17 million? This Enzo, that’s what.

Set to cross the auction block in Paris on the 3rd of February, it has previously made headlines all over the world – for all the wrong reasons.

Built in 2004, chassis 135564 left the factory painted in Ferrari’s most popular color: Rosso Corsa. In 2006, however, it was involved in a serious crash in the United States, where it infamously split in two on the Pacific Coast Highway at around 260 km/h (162 mph)!

After that incredible accident, it seemed inevitable that it would be scrapped. However, it was completely repaired by Ferrari Technical Assistance Service, resprayed in a shade of Nero Daytona and outfitted with bright red leather seats.

The car also has a Bose stereo system, satellite navigation, a reversing camera, power windows and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. Despite its less than immaculate history, the rebuilt Enzo has been certified by Ferrari Classiche and has 2,500 km (1,550 miles) on the odometer.

There’s no reason to doubt Ferrari’s work at restoring it, but it does have a tainted history, so it’ll be interesting to see how much it will sell for.
