Ferrari Enzo prototype number M3 is up for sale again

What we have here folks is actually something really unique. At first glance you'd think someone lengthened a Ferrari 348 over a very long chassis or that this must be some custom kit car using the Ferrari badge for the fun of it. But it's not. This car is actually the mother of all Ferrari Enzos.

Most of you are aware what the Ferrari Enzo is/was. It was produced between 2002 to 2004 and was the flagship model of the Ferrari range at the time. 400 of these cars were produced and notable accolades included it being in the list of Sports Car International's 'Top Sports Cars of the 2000s' and also in Bloomberg's '50 ugliest cars of the past 50 years'. According to Bloomberg the Enzo's superfluous curves and angles as too flashy, particularly the V-shaped hood, scooped-out doors, and bulbous windshield.

Whatever the case is, the Enzo is a striking car and was even more striking when Demi Moore drove one in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. But the mother of all Enzos pictured in here isn't. This car is one of Ferrari's test mules (prototypes) that somehow escaped destruction. Usually manufacturers do not sell their prototypes but this one was actually the one offered for sale sometime in 2005. Back then, it made 195,000Euros and now it's back on sale again by Ferrari specialists Modena Motorsport of Germany.

To build the Enzo, Ferrari made three of these test prototypes in 2000. They were simply called the M1, M2 and M3. All were bodied like the 348 (which many said was a disappointing junior Ferrari) and all looked pretty strange to me. However one important fact is that the this test mule made 20PS more than the road-going Enzo. The other important fact that may be mentioned here is that the car is pretty ugly.

So if anyone wants a piece of Ferrari history give the people over at Modena Motorsport a call. The price is on application. In the meantime, just enjoy the photos in here.
