Ever heard or seen a white Ferrari? No right? But one unique one does exist. The one and only white Ferrari Enzo is up for auction. With fewer than 20 Enzos were allowed to leave the factory painted in a non-standard colour and this was one of them.
While the auction house isn’t putting an estimate on how much the Enzo might go for, but, in 2015, the last Enzo built was sold by RM Sotheby’s for more than $6 million and in 2021, a black 2003 Enzo sold for $3.36 million.

Named after the founder of Enzo Ferrari, Enzo was the successor to the legendary F40 and F50. Featuring a lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque chassis, the car derived its power from a 6.0-litre V-12 which allowed the Enzo to go from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph, making it one of the quickest supercars of its day. The auction is to be held on June 29.

A wooden beauty, the rare 1924 Hispano Suiza Racer is going up for auction through RM Sotheby’s in August and is expected to fetch up to $12 million at auction. With a tulipwood–body, the car was founded in 1904, by the Spanish automotive engineering company, Hispano Suiza under the direction of Swiss engineer Marc Birkigt.
Bringing together state-of-the-art technology with quality equivalent to the Rolls Royce, Hispano Suiza has won multiple races. 18 feet in length the car is huge and just ten inches shorter than a new Rolls-Royce Phantom—but weighs less than 3,500 pounds. A 46-gallon fuel tank and low-profile competition radiator made the Torpedo a purpose-built machine.
