THE Ferrari Enzo, named after the company founder, is one of the most iconic flagships coming from Maranello, Italy.

Sadly, a red example was involved in a crash in the Netherlands, allegedly while on a test drive.

While no serious injuries were reported, the Enzo sustained significant damage on both ends and will most likely need to be repaired before it can be driven again.

The incident happened on Tuesday, 18 January, in the Baarn region of the Netherlands, also known by the name Amsterdamsestraatweg.

Carscoops reports that a witness saw the Ferrari travelling at high speed when the driver lost control, resulting in the mid-engined supercar spinning before ending up on a tree.

The end result is two missing wheels from the passenger side, several cracked body panels and damaged underpinnings.

All airbags have been deployed, but the carbon-fibre monocoque and mid-mounted V12 appear to be unaffected.

The Enzo is one of Ferrari’s most recognisable models, with 400 units produced between 2002 and 2004.

There are fewer examples of the Enzo left on the road, 20 years after its production began, due to some of them being involved in accidents.

The value of the Italian supercar has steadily increased, with examples selling for $3 million (about R45 million) in recent auctions.
