The Ferrari Enzo is a car named after the founder himself. It was designed by Ken Okuyama, then head of design at Pininfarina, and was originally presented at the 2002 Paris Motor Show in a limited edition of 399 units.
At the end of the project, 500 were produced. The 400th production run was donated to the Vatican as a charity. The 400th car was sold at auction for $1.1 million.
On one-way downhill, the Enzo accelerates to 97 km/h in 3.14 seconds and reaches 161 km/h in 6.6 seconds.
It has received several accolades over the years: in 2004, Ferrari Enzo was ranked third on the list of the best sports cars of the 2000s by the American Sports Car International magazine. Motor Trend Classic magazine ranked the Enzo fourth in its list of the “Ten Best Ferraris of All Time”.
Alongside these, however, it was also named one of the “fifty ugliest cars of the last 50 years” for its exaggerated prominence of unnecessary curves and angles, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
The Enzo is the Italian automaker’s last naturally aspirated, non-electric hypercar, and the V12 used was plenty to qualify for excellence.
Enzo’s maximum power output was 650 horsepower and 485 horsepower of torque.
Considering that the Enzo cost around £450,000 at launch, owners and investors have done quite well with the car. Today, it is rare to see one for less than £1.5 million.
The film ‘Ferrari’ follows the life of Enzo Ferrari himself when he was at his lowest ebb. His only solution is to win the race to save his marriage and his business. The film was released in 2023.
