Two iconic supercars of the 2000s, the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati MC12, are now available for purchase at Romans International. These two cars have a special connection since their creation and are part of a prestigious UK collection. Despite being on the market for only five years, their value has nearly doubled without ever being driven due to their immaculate condition. As these iconic vehicles search for new owners, it begs the question: what could be their future worth?
Introduced at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show, the Maserati MC12 was designed as a companion to the Ferrari Enzo, symbolizing Maserati’s triumphant return to the racing world after a 37-year break. With only 50 road-legal units produced, divided equally between 2004 and 2005, the MC12 is a highly sought-after vehicle, surpassing even the Enzo in rarity and sharing numerous mechanical elements with it. Its scarcity rivals that of the legendary McLaren F1. This exclusivity and its roots in racing reflect the investment appeal once held by the F1, which saw its value increase from £1m to well over £10m in just ten years.
Featuring a Ferrari Enzo-derived engine, known as the potent F140B V12, and the innovative “F1 gearbox” (also referred to as “Maserati Cambiocorsa”), the MC12 is much more than just a financial investment. Its carbon fibre bodywork has been meticulously honed in wind tunnels, resulting in a distinctive aesthetic. Adorned exclusively in the regal Bianco Fuji colour scheme, the MC12 stands out as a contemporary performance icon. With an elongated body and broader wings compared to its Enzo counterpart, every aspect of the MC12’s design was carefully crafted to master the wind and convey an impressive aerodynamic prowess. One notable difference between the two vehicles is the inclusion of a removable roof on the MC12, adding a visceral element to the driving experience and enhancing the connection to its roaring V12 engine.
Named after the esteemed founder of the brand, the Ferrari Enzo stands as a defining example of 21st-century automotive design and engineering. Infused with expertise from Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher, it wowed audiences with its cutting-edge 6.0L V12 engine, propelling it from 0-60mph in an astonishing 3.1 seconds. Paying tribute to Ferrari’s victorious F2002 Formula 1 car, its exclusive production run of only 400 units (including a unique edition for Pope John Paul II), solidified its status as a coveted collector’s item.
These two automotive masterpieces are more than just siblings under the Fiat umbrella. They embody a unique combination of racing pedigree, exceptional engineering, and captivating beauty, making them an appealing investment opportunity.
According to Tom Jaconelli, Director of Romans International, the purchase of these cars goes beyond being a simple transaction. It marks the next stage in their journey as significant and valuable collector’s items. Whether for passionate car enthusiasts or savvy investors, the Maserati MC12 and Ferrari Enzo are more than just vehicles – they are masterpieces of design and engineering, representing the rich heritage and cutting-edge technology of two highly revered automotive brands.
