From the early days campaigning Alfa Romeo’s Grand Prix titans to the final game-changing supercar launched shortly before his death, Enzo Ferrari was committed throughout his life to creating world-beating machines. Whether sitting at the pinnacle of motorsport or within the pages of magazine centrefolds, cars that wore the Prancing Horse badge represented the very cutting edge of technology, style, and performance. Fitting, then, that the car built in his honour—the Ferrari Enzo—would exemplify everything that had seen the Maranello marque grow from a boutique producer of sports racers to one of the most coveted and desirable badges in automotive history.

Like the great halo models that came before, the Enzo was created to push the boundaries of road car performance, utilising technology derived from the top-tier of motorsport and otherworldly styling from long-term design partner Pininfarina. Constructed from lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium, the Enzo’s sophisticated chassis was clothed in composite bodywork styled by the carrozzeria’s Ken Okuyama and shaped by wind-tunnel testing. Influenced by Ferrari’s leading grand prix cars, the rakish nose struck a tone carried over to the rest of the coachwork, with subtle ground-effect aerodynamics and a small active spoiler in place of the F50’s outrageous rear wing.

At the Enzo’s heart lay an all-new, mid-mounted, 6.0-litre V-12 engine that produced a staggering 651 horsepower— greater than the output of any of its rivals. But it wasn’t just the headline power figure that impressed, but how it was delivered, with a perfect combination of low-end torque; fierce acceleration with each shift of the paddles; and an addictive howl as the needle approached the 8,200 rpm redline. Like its top-of-the-range predecessors, the Enzo set a new benchmark for performance and design, and due to a production run that numbered just 399 examples, has since become one of the most significant collector cars of the early 21st Century.

Finished in Rosso Corsa over a Nero interior, this Enzo was ordered on 16 October 2002 via Ferrari concessionaire Maranello Sales of Egham, England. Chassis 132659 was collected from the Modena factory on 23 June 2003 by its first and only owner, a journey that is documented in an accompanying branded photo album. In less than two months the car had travelled some 3,471 kilometres, and on 5 August it was serviced at the supplying dealer. By the time of its second service on 17 September, the car had covered 9,894 kilometres.

The consignor continued to use and enjoy his Enzo as its makers intended into the following year, before an accident in March 2004 necessitated repair works at the factory in Maranello. After returning to service, the consignor continued to drive his Enzo as before, and by September 2004 had covered an impressive 23,384 kilometres.

Stamps in the accompanying Ferrari service manual track the mileage from 2003 to 2012, with the last service stamp at Joe Macari in May 2012 noting an odometer reading of 51,935 kilometres. After 11 years of exemplary service, the owner handed chassis 132659 to marque specialist Moto Technique in June 2014. The front suspension was stripped and lubricated, and with no replacement parts available for the wiper and lift motors, new ones were designed and fabricated in house at a cost of £8,843. Four months later, Dick Lovett carried out multiple repairs totalling £17,315. Four new tyres were fitted, along with an air-conditioning pump, battery, front and rear brake pads, rear silencer, a replacement clutch, and suspension bushes.

As The Gran Turismo Collection grew, the Enzo saw less use in the 2010s, and by 19 November 2019 had covered 71,924 kilometres. During a three-month visit to Joe Macari, all wishbone bushes were replaced, along with four ball joints, and an engine and brake fluid refresh. Technicians also turned their attention to the cabin, replacing both seat adjuster levers and stripping and refurbishing all the “sticky” plastic interior components. The Enzo left the workshop on 14 February 2020 with invoices totalling more than £11,000. Chassis 132659 was last serviced on 17 August 2021 at H.R. Owen. The engine oil, gearbox oil, and power-steering fluid was replaced, along with the air filters, auxiliary belts, coolant, and spark plugs. Furthermore, the air conditioning system was tested and re-gassed, all at a cost of £5,236.

Chassis 132659 presents today in its factory-correct Rosso Corsa over Nero, and with its matching-numbers V-12 engine. It is accompanied by a host of documentation including books, Certificate of Conformity, Ferrari folio, locking wheel-nut socket, MoT certificates, photo album, order correspondence, service invoices, and Warranty Card, plus other associated documents.

Having covered 71,937 kilometres at the time of cataloguing, this remarkable Ferrari Enzo is perhaps one of the best-travelled examples of a landmark car that is so often consigned to static display in private collections. A fitting testament to Ferrari’s founder—and a reflection of the true usability of its class-leading performance—this Enzo deserves a new custodian who believes in enjoying their car to the full. Offered for sale for the first time, chassis 132659 presents a rare opportunity to acquire a Ferrari Enzo that can be driven everywhere and anywhere—an ideal candidate for touring the continent.
