Ferrari Enzo mule – Click above for high-res image gallery

It's not every day that a Ferrari mule comes up for sale, but that day, ladies and gentlemen, has arrived. What you see here may look like an old 348, maybe with some 355 components retrofitted. But what you're actually looking at is one of the mules that gave rise to the all-conquering Enzo supercar.

The car may wear modified 348 bodywork – disguising evaluation testers with existing sheetmetal is common practice in Maranello – but like so many things, it's what's inside that counts. And in this case, it's a 670-horsepower V12 derived from the Scuderia's Formula One racing program, but adapted for roadcar use and mated to a six-speed paddle-shift transmission.

Enamored of the Enzo's performance, but less so of its styling? This could be your once-in-a-lifetime chance. Think of it the same way as the 288 GTO was to the F40, only one-of-a-kind, and suddenly the Langenfeld, Germany dealer's 750,000 Euro (a cool $1M at today's rates) asking price doesn't seem quite so extravagant, though it's not much cheaper than a full-on factory Enzo. Have a closer look in the high-res image gallery below and then be sure to take a look at Modena Motorsport's website. Thanks for the tip, Juan Pablo!

      See, they made a better looking Enzo without even trying

        +1

        It's definitely better than the Enzo, though I've never been much of a fan of the full-on "F1 for the road" Ferraris (Enzo, F50, F40). I just wish they could have started with a 355 instead of a 348 :(

        Haha, I was going to post something similar as well! +1

        Love the exhaust exiting the rear corner like that.

      I wouldn't call it the 288 GTO to the F40.

      I'd call it the 288 Evoluzione to the F40.

      Love to know how this thing was snuck out the back door. Wonder if Mr.Shumacher had any thing to do with it.

      Effing sweet.

      I am surprised it still exists most 'Mules' and 'pre production' cars get scrapped after use, so a great bit of history has been saved.
      As 'mules' go this is a pretty car, the Jag XJ220 used an old Ford Transit Van as a base, this still exists and was shown at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed a couple of years ago.

        Re Elmo - Dam so that was a elaborate hoax! it had me and it was quite believable as it was in several glossy classic car mags at the time, thanks for the info.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well it wasn't a hoax. It was an XJ220. It had all the underpinnings of an XJ220. So it was pretty badass. Much more badass than the Transit RS (not as badass as the SuperVans, though).

      Do. Want. This is the Enzo I would like to purchase. You know... if I had $1m sitting around...
      • 4 Years Ago

      • 4 Years Ago
