Last Ferrari Enzo Built, Previously Owned by Pope John Paul II, Now For Sale

When Ferrari decided to use the name of its founder for one of its halo cars, it became clear that, sans for technically enhanced incarnations, no Enzo would be more special than the rest of the 399 units produced.

Well, as you know, some animals are more equal than others and we’re here to talk about just such a case. The Enzo you’re looking at here is number 400, the final and the most important one ever built.

And don’t imagine it’s just the number above that makes this Enzo the king. For one thing, it used to belong to the late Pope John Paul II. Maranello itself offered this to the Pope as a gift. As you can imagine, the vehicle is in mint condition, having only 180 km (112 miles) on the odo.

Some regard this as a one-off with factory-delivered options, such as the carbon fiber rear spoiler and the inscription wearing now departed Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo. In fact, the Pope himself blessed this Enzo “under the bonnet”.

Perhaps the best thing about this Prancing Horse is the fact that you can now have it. The 2005 Enzo will go under the hammer at RM Auction’s Monterey event, which is scheduled to take place on 13-15 August.

The price? Well, asking about that is like inquiring about a color change, as in you’d better not. In fact, the financial side will most likely be the only unholy part of this Ferrari Enzo.
