Only 400 were made, and only 399 of them are left after one of them crashed, but the Ferrari Enzo has a special place in automotive culture, and one of them has been spotted driving through the Hamptons.
Two witnesses called in to tell us that they saw a Ferrari Enzo parked in Southampton with license plates that read “1 of 399″ to indicate that it was the first one off of the factory line. And another called to tell us that they saw the same car driving through the back roads through Sagaponack.
The car was made after the company’s founder Enzo Ferrari, and it’s considered to be the most exclusive Ferrari that money can buy and only collectors of Ferrari’s own them. When the car was first sold, Ferrari invited collectors of Ferrari to buy them through personal invitation, and every single car was sold in this fashion.
The Enzo Ferrari is a 12 cylinder mid-engine berlinetta named after the company’s founder, Enzo Ferrari. It was built in 2002 using Formula One technology, such as acarbon-fibre body, F1-style electrohydraulic shift transmission, and Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite disc brakes. Also used are technologies not allowed in F1 such as active aerodynamics and traction control.
The car typically trades for over $1 million.
