Driving on one of Germany’s unrestricted sections of the Autobahn in a supercar is an automotive dream for many enthusiasts. It doesn’t always end well, however, underscored by a Ferrari Enzo crashing on the A99 near Munich March 5. The ultra-exclusive Enzo, one of just 400 produced, suffered extensive damage in the crash.

The Munich Fire Department reported the Enzo skidded “for unknown reasons” and crashed into the center barrier. The release did not comment on the Enzo’s speed at the time of the crash. However, the impact was apparently violent. Debris from the Ferrari was spread “around 200 meters,” or over 600 feet, along the road. Another car was damaged by the scattering debris.

Three people were injured, the report said, with one person transported to a local hospital. The report did not specify if the persons injured were in the Enzo or the other car involved.

Police have started an investigation into the cause of the accident, the report noted.

Obviously, it’s hoped that all involved will make a speedy physical recovery. For the owner of the Enzo, their pride, and pockets, are surely going to suffer because of the incident.

A photo shared by the Munich Fire Department shows the entire front section of the Enzo stripped away from the midengined supercar. The damage extends to the A-pillar on the right side of the Ferrari. However, there appears to be limited, if any, damage beyond the A-Pillar, suggesting the Enzo contacted the barrier head-on but otherwise avoided additional impacts with other cars or objects.

That suggests the Enzo could feasibly be repaired to ride again. However, the repairs, if possible, certainly won’t be cheap.

The Enzo was produced from 2002-04, effectively using Formula One technology in a street-legal car. Two decades have passed since the last Enzo was produced, but its specs remain impressive. Notably, its naturally aspirated V12 delivers 651 horsepower, propelling the Enzo from 0-60 mph in just over three seconds. Its listed top speed is 217 mph.

The Enzo sports a carbon-fiber body, active aerodynamics, an F1-inspired single-clutch automated manual transmission and carbon ceramic brakes. While more common now, such features were incredible when the Enzo was first produced.

That’s why it bears the name “Enzo,” after Ferrari’s Founder, Enzo Ferrari.

The Enzo retailed for about $659,000 when new, and not just anyone could buy one. Only prospective buyers Ferrari saw fit to own one were invited to purchase it. Time has only increased the Enzo’s value.  

Hagerty notes a 2004 Enzo in “good” condition is valued at $3.5 million.
