Ferrari’s first hypercar of the new millennium, the Enzo set not only a new benchmark within the storied marque, but also the gold standard for performance cars going forward. Cutting edge in every way, the Enzo bridged the gap between the Scuderia’s Formula 1 cars and Ferrari’s road-legal automobiles, bringing 399 of Ferrari’s best clients the highest performance automobile Ferrari had ever built.

With a naturally aspirated V-12 engine producing 660 bhp mated to a six-speed, sequential Formula 1-style gearbox, the Enzo could sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds, accelerating onwards to an astonishing 218 mph. In a contemporary review of the Enzo, Harry Metcalfe remarked on the Enzo’s impressive speed, commenting that, ‘It’s like the car is covered in a special layer of Teflon, allowing it to slip effortlessly through the cool night air. In fact, this side of a Veyron, I can’t think of a car that builds speed quite as easily as the Enzo.’

Finished in seldom seen and highly desirable Nero over a matching Nero interior with yellow stitching, this Enzo was delivered new to Germany and its first owner, Walter Rossing of Bad Hersfeld, on 29 April 2004 through Eberlein Automobile, the official Ferrari dealership of Kassel. Black was very seldom specified on the Enzo, and it is believed that about 12 Enzos with varying interior colours left the factory finished in black.

The car remained with Rossing for the vast majority of its life and was driven frequently during his ownership, before passing to its second German owner, from whose collection it is offered today. Well maintained throughout its life, the car’s warranty manual shows services completed on a bi-annual basis, always by Eberlein, with the last service undertaken earlier this year.

Undoubtedly one of the most memorable Ferraris built thus far in the 21st century, the Enzo was nothing short of a milestone for Ferrari. Finished in one of the most desirable colour schemes offered for the Enzo, this is the ideal Enzo for the enthusiast looking to experience one of Ferrari’s greatest creations on the open road.
