MONACO – June 27, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – MonacoCarAuctions™ is delighted to confirm that, following the conclusion of its debut L’AstaRossa sale held in partnership with Top Marques earlier this month, the auction house has facilitated the €5,400,000 transaction of Fernando Alonso’s exquisite 2002 Ferrari Enzo.
Sold directly from the private collection of the two-time Formula One World Champion, the Enzo is widely considered to be the hypercar that defined the breed. Its bold design, legendary performance and stunning engine note made the car an instant icon. Following in the footsteps of the prized Ferrari 288 GTO, F40 and F50, the Enzo utilised a carbon fibre and Nomex honeycomb monocoque chassis and an all-new six-litre V12 engine, capable of hitting a 7,800rpm red line. Both elements drew on the technology and expertise afforded by Ferrari’s illustrious Formula One programme. Today, more than 20 years after the car was unveiled, the 3.1-second 0-100kph time and top speed in excess of 350kph still holds up against many modern performance cars.
In addition to the provenance afforded by its esteemed ownership, Alonso’s former Enzo carries the added significance of being ‘Scocca n.1’ – the first body manufactured – which is confirmed by the car’s Ferrari Classiche red book. The car boasts just 4,800km on the odometer and is sold fresh from an overhaul commissioned by its previous owner.
Those attending the auction both in person and online were shown an exclusive video message from the Formula One star, congratulating the prospective new owner on their sensational purchase. Alonso said: “It means a lot to me, and I’ve had a great time with the car – it’s a magic piece of art. I know that it’s going to be in good hands… please take care of the car and enjoy it.”
Speaking of the Enzo sale, Laurent Blomet, Founder and Director of MonacoCarAuctions™ said: “The sale of Fernando Alonso’s Enzo is the icing on the cake of what has been a very successful first auction. Achieving such a strong figure for a car with such provenance, on top of some excellent results across the sale, further demonstrates our ability to achieve market-leading prices. Congratulations to the new owner on their special acquisition.”
The L’AstaRossa auction was also notable for the €1,512,000 sale of a race-run 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Boano – a record for such a car at a public auction. The one-of-14 alloy-bodied coupe, built for Ferrari by Carrozzeria Boano, competed in the 1956 Nassau Governor’s Trophy with prominent customer racer, Jan de Vroom, at the helm. Other highlights included a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO, which sold for €784,000, while a 1975 Ferrari 246 GTS and a 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia each sold for €448,000 on the night.
