Chip in a Cool $12 Million for an Undriven Ferrari Enzo and Maserati MC12
Most car enthusiasts would find the temptation of driving two of the most exclusive supercars produced this millennium, the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati MC12, to be far too much to keep them locked away in a garage.
But apparently, someone out there purchased these exquisite mid-2000s supercars for their profit prospects and had the will to keep them off the road. And if you have well over $10 million in your “fun” budget, these factory-fresh and ultra-rare supercars can now be yours.
This Ferrari and Maserati have been practically undriven for the last 15-plus years
Supercar and exotics dealership Romans International, based in Surrey, England, recently listed an MC12 and Enzo, each in practically undriven condition. The 2005 MC12 has just 207 miles showing on the odometer, just slightly more than the driving distance between Indianapolis and Chicago. Meanwhile, the 2004 Rosso Corsa Enzo has just 142 miles on the clock, which equals a one-way trip from Philadelphia to Washington D.C.
The Enzo and MC12 each had ultra-limited runs and were only sold to the most elite of collectors and followers of their respective brands. In total, just 50 MC12s were produced, and 400 Enzos were manufactured. As such, not only are both of these supercars ultra-rare, but they are also likely the most factory-fresh examples of each existing model.
Now, a collector could feasibly purchase them together, further uniting the ties the Enzo and MC12 share.
The Enzo pays homage to Ferrari’s founder and the brand’s F1 pedigree
The Enzo was the ultimate Ferrari of its time, and though more than 20 years have passed since it first rolled out of Maranello, its specs are still hugely impressive.
The Enzo, named after Ferrari’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, was developed with a carbon-fiber body sporting active aerodynamics, an F1-inspired single-clutch automated manual transmission, and carbon ceramic brakes. It was motivated by a naturally aspirated V12 cranking out 651 horsepower and 485 lb.-ft. of torque that could rocket the Enzo from 0-60 mph in just over three seconds and on to a top speed of 217 mph.
And remember, Ferrari’s halo was introduced in 2002, at which time features like active aerodynamics, a 0-60 time of under 3.5 seconds and other characteristics of the Enzo were otherworldly.
The MC12 was a street-legal GT race car for the streets
The Enzo effectively served as the basis for the MC12. And though the Ferrari is more iconic, the MC12 is rarer, and in many ways, even more hardcore as it’s effectively a homologation special.
Maserati wanted to make its return to the FIA GT Championship, but regulations require that competing cars must be based on road-legal models. As such, Maserati’s engineers essentially made its MC12 racer, and changed only what was absolutely necessary to make it road legal to create the road-going MC12.
As such, the MC12 was constructed with the same chassis and drivetrain as the Enzo, but it sported a wider and longer body complete with a massive rear wing and hood scoop that showcases its racing intentions.
What’s the value of these pristine MC12 and Enzo examples?
For those lucky enough to buy one new, the Ferrari Enzo retailed for about $659,000 while the MC12 commanded just over $800,000. Unsurprisingly, they’re worth a whole lot more now.
Hagerty notes an Enzo in “good” condition should fetch about $3.5 million, and it’s reasonable to assume the model being sold by Romans International with under 150 miles on the clock could be considered in “concours” condition and sell for far more. Hagerty doesn’t have an evaluation for the MC12, likely because they’re so rare and don’t change hands often.
Romans International isn’t openly advertising the price of either the MC12 or Enzo. Rather, the price is listed as “POA,” or “price on application,” and it’s reasonable to expect these models will fetch well over $10 million combined.
