There’s little question that the Ferrari Enzo was (and remains) one of the hottest supercars ever made. But the styling, while eye-catching… well, suffice it to say isn’t the most beautiful form the Italians have ever created.
At least, that is, to our eye, and in the bright shade of red that most of them were painted. Paint it black, though, and it’s another story entirely.
Decked out all in black, the Enzo’s shape goes from awkward and ungainly to sinister and not quite of this world, hiding some of the stranger lines in the process. Fortunately, while most of them were ordered up in Rosso Corsa (or what some would call “resale red”), there were a dozen or so completed in Nero. Like this one right here that’s set to trade hands once more at the factory as part of RM Sotheby’s forthcoming Leggenda e Passione auction.
Delivered new to Germany (where it remains still), this 2004 Ferrari Enzo has had just two owners over the course of its lifetime, who between them put 13,400 miles on the odometer. The interior matches the bodywork in black, accented in yellow stitching. Just look at the thing in the gallery below, captured by Peter Singhof for RM Sotheby’s. Try not to like it too much, though, because while the auctioneer hasn’t publicized an estimate, we have every reason to believe this murdered-out Prancing Horse will sell for about $2 million when the gavel drops on September 9 at the factory in Maranello.
