online collector car auction took place in the final week of May, marking a first for the auction house: the first time they organized an event solely for the digital platform. The event brought a new world record for an online auction, when someone paid $2,640,000 for the 2003 Ferrari Enzo. And they didn’t even get to see the car in person beforehand.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that, even with this record, the event fell short of expectations. The Enzo was estimated at $2.6 to $2.9 million, so the price fetched was on the lower end of the spectrum. Furthermore, according to , 40 percent of the cars offered had bids too low to be considered. When the auction ended, only 61 percent of the 193 cars listed had found new owners.

Back to the Enzo, the one-of-400 car was in excellent condition, having had only two owners since new (one of the owners kept it for 15 years) and 1,250 miles (2,012 km) on the clock. It was in immaculate condition, which, in conjunction with the fact that it was a limited-edition, drove the original price of $650,000 upwards.

This old-timer can still put some of today’s cars to shame, thanks to its 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 that delivers 651 hp to the rear wheels. It has a claimed top speed of 217 mph (350 kph) and can do 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) in a little over three seconds.

Another Ferrari, a 1985 288 GTO, came in second at the same online event, fetching $2,310,000.
