What makes this Ferrari hypercar rare?

 

A bidder will soon savor the grin on their face as they bring home and drive the rare 2004 Ferrari Enzo hypercar in Matte Black. What makes the hypercar design an unrepeatable classic is that it is the only Ferrari Enzo delivered new from Maranello, utilizing influence only available to a member of the Brunei royal family.

 

2004 Ferrari Enzo was the first Ferrari hypercar ever delivered by the Factory in Matte Black, a former crown jewel in the largest collection of one-off Ferraris, as RM Sotheby’s claims.

With a published production of just 400 examples ever built, the rare and coveted hypercar 2004 Ferrari Enzo was introduced at a time in Ferrari’s history when the color pallete for road cars was still quite limited. A member of the royal family of Brunei tapped Ferrari for a true one-off color, and the car manufacturer made it happen by painting the hypercar with Nero Opaco (Matte Black). While it is one of the most popular tailor-made colors today, it wasn’t during 2004 Ferrari Enzo’s conception, making it ahead of its time.

Creating 2004 Ferrari Enzo

 

The creation of 2004 Ferrari Enzo hypercar began on June 8th, 2004 and finished on October 15th the same year. The matte black variant was specified with Nero Opaco paintwork over a matching Nero leather interior with Nero carpets and was personalized with large-sized seats. Its recent restoration saw replacements of its necessary items such as the typical sticky switches, front and rear headlights, rear bonnet glass, and a full repaint to the car’s original Nero Opaco.

 

RM Sotheby’s writes that the one-off car was kept at the family’s London residence, where it made the occasional appearance around the streets of Hampstead, Mayfair, and Knightsbridge, before later being brought over to the Asia-Pacific region.

Bidders only have two days to participate

 

The rest of the hypercar was every inch as special as the characterful drivetrain, which was housed in a chassis formed of carbon fiber and aluminum and clothed in carbon composite body panels. For the first time, the hypercar is up for sale at RM Sotheby’s.

 

Offered without reservations, the bidding opens on December 5th at 5pm GMT and closes in two days. At the end of the bidding, which is now up on RM Sotheby’s site, only one bidder can own and experience the rarity that 2004 Ferrari Enzo shared across the world during its introduction.
