A rich guy abandoned his Ferrari Enzo worth nearly $1.6 million in a parking lot in Dubai for 20 months. This awesome car offers a top speed of 387 kilometers per hour. Ferrari Enzo can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in merely 3.14 seconds! When this car was launched, its initial base price was $670,000. The automaker hand-picked each original buyer of this magnificent car. The basic criteria for handpicking the owners was that they need to own at least 2 other Ferraris. Also, they should be well known by the car manufacturer for at minimum 10 years.
However, because of the global economic turbulence that began in the year 2008, some of these Enzo started appearing for sale. The ownership standards began to reduce considerably. It is perhaps by this means that the rich British guy living in Dubai landed with this rear masterpiece. This expat has been liable for traffic violations and tickets worth $30,000! It was discovered that the guy abandoned his Ferrari Enzo in the dusty parking lot in order to avoid being dragged to jail as unpaid debut is a serious offense in Dubai. The whereabouts of the guy are unknown. His Ferrari Enzo is likely to be put up for auction along with other cars that have either been seized by the police officials or have been abandoned by their owners.
Ferrari manufactured only 400 units of this ultra-gorgeous Ferrari Enzo. Initially at the 2002 Paris Motor Show, the company announced a limited production of 349 Enzo’s priced at US $659,330. Later, after numerous requests, Ferrari decided to build 50 more Enzos, bringing the total to 399. In 2004 a 400th Enzo was built and donated to the Vatican for charity, which was later sold at a Sotheby’s auction for $1.1 million. Apart from the production cars, Ferrari built three development mules M1, M2, and M3. The third mule was offered for auction alongside the 400th Enzo in June, 2005, bringing $236,300.
Ferrari Enzo was named after the founder of the company, Enzo Ferrari. It is a two-seater Berlinetta. This sports car has been powered by a 6.0-litre Tipo F140B V12 engine which has been mated with 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. It was produced from the year 2002 to the year 2004 only and features RMR layout. It is one of the most desirable sports car.
