Ferrari Enzo close to catching fire image

A very rare Ferrari Enzo was close to catching fire in the United States, at a recent RM Auctions event.

When a 1929 Bentley bursts into flames is best to stay away, this was learned almost the hard way by the owner of a Ferrari Enzo, who was looking to sell his expensive and very rare ride. The “old” Bentley burst into flames when someone depressed its gas pedal and the Ferrari Enzo was parked next to it. If the fire had expanded, the Enzo would have been ruined, along with an F40, an F50 and a 288 GTO, which were next to the Enzo.

As a quick reminder, the Ferrari Enzo has been in production between 2002 and 2004. Only 400 units of the supercar have been produced and the model came in a single body style, a 2-seat Berlinetta. The Ferrari Enzo had a 12-cylinder mid-engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The model was 4,702 mm ling, 2,035 mm wide and 1,147 mm tall, weighing just 1,365 kg. The Enzo has been replaced by the impressive LaFerrari, the company’s first ever hybrid supercar. The LaFerrari has been introduced to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
