Ferrari Enzo In Giallo Modena Heads Arizona Sale In January

Ferrari Enzo

The Ferrari Enzo is beautiful in any colour, but Giallo Modena is particularly eye-catching and now highly desirable as the illustrious Italian hypercar moves into the next century.

Bold in both name and appearance, the Enzo instantly became the most sought after high-profile automobiles from the moment it left the stable in Maranello, Italy 2002. Technology was harvested directly from the company’s Formula One curriculum, bringing race-car performance to a machine that could be used on legally the roads, but only by those fortunate enough to afford such automotive luxury and style. Its lightning performance was and still is jaw-droppingly fast, sprinting from static to 100 km/h in an eye-watering 3.6 seconds and reaching a top speed of 350 km/h.

Every Ferrari Enzo is a desirable thing but this particular example stands out of the crowd. Chassis no. 131319, was delivered new to its original owner via Foreign Cars Italia in Greensboro, North Carolina and was promptly featured as the cover car for Car and Driver’s July 2003 issue, the willing subject of the first official testing review available to the United States audience.

The original owner was also widely known for ‘enjoying’ his cars and although the car is only showing less than 12,000 miles – it was driven as it was meant to be…

Any serious buyers will need to dig deep as the estimate has been set at (Est. $2,250,000 – $2,500,000).

Other Lots

Joining the Enzo in Arizona is another fantastic Ferrari, a genuinely rare, “low roof” 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Alloy Coupe coachbuilt by Felice Mario Boano in 1957. One of just 14 alloy-bodied coupes produced by Boano between 1956 – 1958 and with certification by Ferrari Classiche.

Originally owned by NART financier, George Arents, 0613 GT was raced by Arents just once at Maryland’s Marlboro Speedway in 1957 before it was sold to noted privateer Bob Grossman, who navigated the car in several races, including the Speed week’s famous ‘All-Ferrari’ race, where he finished sixth overall. In 1960, 0613 GT was exported to England and passed through the stables of several English owners.

The car was exported to the United States in 2002, and by 2004, a concours preparation regiment and engine rebuild was executed, which resulted in a Gold Award at the 2004 FCA International Concours d’Elegance in Monterey. Between 2011 and 2016, a previous owner spared no expense keeping 0613 GT in peak mechanical form for a regular rallying calendar, with the car being a regular and successful fixture at both the California Mille and Colorado Grand. Attesting to its Ferrari Classiche Certification, 0613 GT retains its original V-12 engine, gearbox, rear differential, and alloy body (Est. $1,200,000 – $1,400,000).

Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, RM Sotheby’s says:
Our annual Arizona auction has long been known for offering hard-to-find and highly sought-after cars, and 2021 will continue that tradition this year’s sale but with a new venue and format compared to previous years.

The two Ferraris—2003 Enzo and 1956 250 GT Alloy Coupe—are both fantastic examples, each representing very different, but important moments in the marque’s history. I am equally thrilled to announce that our 2021 Arizona auction will be held at the OTTO Car Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 49,000 square foot facility is a sleek and modern facility that will allow clients to preview auction cars by appointment only in a controlled and safe atmosphere as we look to improve, refine and lead in the live and online auction business for 2021.
