Modern life affords us only three sureties: death, taxes, and celebrity-owned vehicles pulling a premium at auction. This year’s been a particularly good one for automobiles with A-list pedigree. Paul Newman’s Porsche 935 racecar, John Lennon’s Austin Princess, Jerry Seinfeld's expansive collection. Looks like the trend will continue into next year, too: Tommy Hilfiger’s Ferrari is headed to auction.
Slated to be offered in January at RM Sotheby’s Arizona sale, the fashion icon’s 2003 Enzo hypercar should bring a mint. Even without Hilfiger’s name attached, it’s a seriously rare bird. Ferrari built just 399 examples of the Enzo (excluding a one-off for the Pope) between 2002 and 2004.
This one, No. 50152, has seen less than 3,700 miles since leaving Maranello thirteen years ago. The mid-mounted, 660-hp, 6.0-liter V12 is just getting broken in. The rest of the car? It might as well be a time capsule. Everything looks… perfect. Every bit as clean as the other Enzo currently for sale in the U.S., which has just 594 miles on the odometer.
Factor in the famous signature on the pink slip, and you can expect this slice of Italian exotica to fetch well over $3 million when it crosses the block January 19.
