The Ferrari Enzo – in fact, it’s official name is the Enzo Ferrari – was a very special car when launched in 2002, and nothing has changed over the years. It remains one of the most amazing, sensation and sought-after supercars of all time, and is a fitting tribute to the legend after whom it was named.
There are some Enzo’s that are, to coin a phrase, more special than others and this one – on sale with Tom Hartley Jnr who are specialists in high-end vehicles – is one of the most unique and desirable of all.
This one is known as the ‘Enzo Schumacher’. It is number two off the production line, and was driven by the great Michael Schumacher – seven times Formula One World Champion – at a Ferrari Racing Days event at the Nürburgring, Germany in August 2002. It would be delivered to its first owner other than the factory in 2004 – in Italy – and came to the UK in 2014.
Original and Complete
The Schumacher connection is just one element that will add to the collectability of this Ferrari Enzo. Being a very early production car, the carbon weave in the bodywork is apparently more evident than on later models. Tom Hartley Jnr confirms that this model displays the weave more prominently than any other Enzo they have handled, citing this as a clear indication of originality.
The Enzo – powered by a 6.0litre V12 and capable of 221mph (355km/h) – can reach 100mph in 6.6 seconds, which is quicker than many very fast cars can reach 60mph! It is a driver’s car of the very highest order, and is without doubt one of the most iconic cars of the 21st century.
The Enzo Schumacher is complete with the original handbooks and all other accessories supplied new with car including car cover, a pouch for the books, a Ferrari torch and more. If you want it, we believe the price to be around £2,250,000 ($2,750,000 at current exchange rates). This is somewhat more that a ‘standard’ Enzo, but given the provenance and importance of this example, will surely find its way to a collector of note.
Footnote – Michael Schumacher Latest
Readers will remember that, in December 2013, Michael Schumacher was badly injured in a skiing accident, which ultimately left him in a coma. Recent news reports have mentioned Schumacher having been operated on and possible improvements to his condition, but the Schumacher family are notoriously secretive and have not made an official statement.
