Hard to believe but true. The SMH is reporting that Dubai police are about to auction off a Ferrari Enzo that was dumped in the desert.

The burning question of why one would want to dump a Ferrari Enzo in the desert near Dubai is actually quite an easy one to answer. It’s a criminal offence to go bankrupt in the Middle East so those that do often dump their belongings and head for the nearest airport to high-tail it out of the country.

In this case the Ferrari Enzo is believed to have been the toy of a failed British businessman who has, of course, fled the country. Launched in 2002 the Ferrari Enzo is a V12 powered beast that does 0-100kph in a little over three seconds and has a curb weight of just 1,365 kilograms. Only 400 were produced.

It’s the predecessor of the famous Ferrari F50 and will be replaced by the soon to be launched Ferrari F70.
