Fernando Alonso has announced he’s putting his Ferrari Enzo up for auction. Whether that’s to make space for a Valkyrie, one can only speculate.
Auctioneer Monaco Car Auctions speculates that when the rosso Enzo comes up for sale next month, it’s expected to hit well over €5,000,000. A good move by the double world champion then, who’s clearly getting used to making good moves again.
There’s little information surrounding Alonso’s ownership of the car, but we know it’s done 4,800km since new, and has been certified by Ferrari’s Classiche division. Other than that, it’s an Enzo, which means it's super rare - just one of 399 - and gets a Formula One-derived 6.0-litre V12 producing a heady 650bhp and 485lb ft.
In fact there are F1 pawprints all over the Enzo, from the wind tunnel-honed body, to the quick-shifting gearbox and even the monster brakes. Good thing too: it'll do 217mph flat out.
“I hope the new owner of this unique piece enjoys it very much,” Alonso posted. Wonder if he'll chuck in a personal handover and driving lesson to sweeten the deal?
