It could reportedly cost over Php 300 million.

Considering only 400 Ferrari Enzo units were said to be produced, having the opportunity to own one should delight prospective owners. Now, Formula 1 (F1) champion Fernando Alonso is giving that chance at an auction courtesy of the Monaco Car Auctions L’AstraRossa.

The Ferrari Enzo has the first body, also referred to as Scocca n.1, which is verified by its Ferrari Classichie certification, and the odometer only reads 4,800 km. According to reports, the supercar could cost over five million euros (or around Php 300 million).

The new owner of the iconic Ferrari supercar will get it in Rossa Corsa. Powering this vehicle is a 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of generating 651 horsepower and 658 Nm of torque. It sends power exclusively to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automated sequential manual gearbox.

The auction will be a treat for fans of the Italian automaker as other Ferrari vehicles will also join the fray. Among the models include the 1972 365 GTC/4 “Beach Car”, 1956 250 GT built by Carrozzeria Boano, 1987 Testarossa, F8 Tributo, Roma, and SF90 Stradale.

The Monaco Car Auctions L’AstaRossa event will start on June 6 with a preview event for select guests. The actual auction will commence on June 8.

It is unclear why Alonso decided to auction his Enzo. This decision follows his impressive win at the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix where he finished in second place. For now, he is focused on the 2023 Formula 1 season where he is currently third in the driver’s standings with 93 points.

The next stop is in the 42-year-old driver’s home race in Spain at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. He is racing for the Aston Martin F1 team alongside Canadian driver Lance Stroll. Currently, the team sits in second place at the constructor’s standing with 120 points, which is a huge improvement over last year when it only scored 55 points.
