With only 400 examples ever made, the Ferrari Enzo has consistently fetched high prices at auction – helped in large part by its membership in the “Ferrari Big Five”, alongside the equally desirable 288 GTO, F40, F50 and LaFerrari.

The V12 supercar, which arrived in 2002 with a retail price of $659,000, has grown in popularity in recent years, and prices are now around $3-4 million, according to Classic.com.

Most recently, a rare black example sold at auction in February for $4.4 million, setting a new high benchmark for the Enzo.

It might be a short-lived record, though. Another Enzo Ferrari has hit the market, also through auction house RM Sotheby’s, but this example is one of nine silver Argento Nurburgring examples. And of these nine, it is believed to be the only one with a beige ‘cuoio’ leather interior.

If that weren’t enough, this Enzo has never been driven. It has just 141 miles on the odometer, has not been registered on the road and even still bears some of the protective wrap applied at the Ferrari factory two decades ago. This plastic wrap covers the door sills and pedals, and there’s even duct tape wrapped around the key.

Originally sold to a Japanese customer, the car is described as the last known “in-box” Ferrari Enzo and “remained largely out of sight for much of its life”, RM Sotheby’s said. As expected, the car comes with its original user manuals, car cover, spare key (still in a zip lock bag) and a three piece luggage set, also still packed in its original packaging.

RM Sotheby’s concludes: “Given its remarkable condition, still bearing much of its protective factory packaging, this Argento Nurburgring example is the ultimate prize for collectors who appreciate both rarity and originality.”

The car is being offered with no reserve price, but via the auction house’s sealed auction system, where interested parties are invited to submit a bid privately between March 15 and 17.
