$3M Ferrari Enzo Destroyed After Crashing Into A Tree, Possibly During A Test Drive

Offbeat


The Ferrari Enzo, named after the company’s founder, is one of the most iconic flagships coming from Maranello. Unfortunately, a red example was crashed this morning in the Netherlands, allegedly during a test drive. While no serious injuries were reported, the Enzo sustained severe damage on both ends and looks like it will be spending a lot of time in the workshop for repairs before getting back on the road.

The incident happened at 11.30 am on Tuesday morning, in the Baarn region of the Netherlands, also known by the name Amsterdamsestraatweg. A witness saw the Ferrari traveling at high speed when the driver lost control with the mid-engined supercar spinning before ending up on a tree.

The aftermath is two missing wheels from the passenger’s side, several cracked body panels, and damaged underpinnings. All airbags have been deployed, but the carbon-fiber monocoque and the mid-mounted V12 appear to be unaffected.

According to local news agency ad.nl, a photographer who happened to be at the spot saw an employee of the Kroymans Ferrari dealership inside the Enzo, indicating that the crash may have happened during a test drive. Other sources claim that a mechanic was driving the car, but nothing has been confirmed yet since a Kroymans Ferrari spokesperson refused to comment on the incident.

The name of the dealer was also visible on the license plates that were removed before the supercar was loaded on the tow truck. Unsurprisingly, no Enzo is listed on the dealer’s inventory.

The Enzo is one of the most iconic Ferraris, with 400 units produced between 2002 and 2004. Twenty years after its production started we have fewer examples of the Enzo left on the roads due to some of them being involved in accidents. The Italian supercar’s value has been steadily rising with examples selling between $2 and $3 million in recent auctions. This makes the Enzo worth saving despite the ultra-expensive repair bill that will come with it – which, of course, will make the insurance company anything but happy.
