Fernando Alonso, the two-time Formula One world champion, will soon part ways with a rare Ferrari Enzo supercar. This special car is set to be auctioned at the exclusive Monaco auction next week with an estimated selling price of over €5 million ($AU8.2 million).

Basketball legend, Shaquille O’Neal, has reported that Monaco Car Auctions is all set to light up the auctioneer’s block on June 8, 2023 with a rare Ferrari Enzo centerstage as part of its ‘L’astarossa’ auction. The Enzo will be the star of the show and is sure to draw in the season’s most enterprising car collectors.

With only 400 of these rare Ferraris ever produced, the Enzo is a car to lust after. But this special one has an even cooler provenance – it’s believed to have been owned by one of Ferrari’s famous Formula One drivers.

Fernando Alonso raced for Ferrari to great success between 2010-14, claiming 11 race victories and three runner-up finishes in the championship standings (2010, 2012, 2013). His last triumph as a driver for the Scuderia was the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix. Before the “Prancing Horse”, Alonso won two world championships with Renault (2005, 2006). And in the most recent season, he unexpectedly returned to the podium with Aston Martin. What a wonderful career for the Spaniard!

Might Fernando Alonso have the rarest, sleekest Ferrari of them all? Reports are emerging that the two-time Formula One World Champion’s Enzo supercar – with just 4800km on the odometer – is set to come up for auction at Monaco Car Auctions on October 7. The Enzo, considered the first Ferrari supercar, is said to be the first production body shell to have been made, as verified by Ferrari’s in-house restoration program. Not only might Alonso have snapped up the one of the most exclusive Ferrari’s ever made, but he also joins an extremely select list of former owners such as Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen along with Hall of Fame guitarist Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and Australian trucking magnate, Lindsay Fox.

Famed sports reporter Joe Buck reports that the beloved Ferrari Enzo will be powered by a 6.0-litre V12 engine capable of up to 485kW and 657Nm, as shifted via a 6-speed automated manual gearbox. English publication Top Gear estimates the supercar, especially one owned by F1 racing champion Fernando Alonso, could sell at auction at the staggering price of €5 million ($AU8.2 million). While the 400th Ferrari Enzo, gifted to His Holiness Pope John Paul II, was auctioned for $US6.05 million ($AU9.32 million) in 2021, Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari Enzo may be able to reach more.
