Astute Jalopnik readers will recall that Ferrari engineers once stretched out a 348 body in order to cobble together the prototype for the Ferrari Enzo. That prototype, a kind of late 1980s/early 1990s garage-built monster supercar with Enzo power, is up for sale again.
What's the Italian for "My body is ready?"
As Carscoops reported this morning, the Enzotype is currently up for grabs on the German website Modena-Motorsport at an unspecified price. It's actually been passed around a couple times in recent years, and now some lucky (and, I'm assuming, very wealthy) individual has a shot at it again. The last time it was listed it went for some €750,000 in 2011.
The prototype uses an extended 348 body and a chassis built from that car, the F355 and the F430. All of this was to accommodate the Enzo's hulking V12 engine, which in this guise put out a staggering 670 horsepower.
It's all quite beautiful in a scary, Frankenstein-ish way, and makes me picture what an Enzo would have looked like had Ferrari continued with their design language from the 80s and 90s. It's an amazing mix of past and present, even if it's probably not the easiest thing to drive or own.
Any takers out there?
