There are lots of options, but this one strikes home: Buy Tommy Hilfiger's car for $3 million (est). And if you call Tommy direct, you can just toodle on up to John Street and pick it up in time to surprise someone on Christmas morning; otherwise, you'll have to wait for it to be auctioned in Arizona, and what billionaire - what Greenwich resident of any income bracket - wants to wait, for anything?
Only 400 Ferrari Enzos were ever made, and the cherry red one owned by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger is in spectacular condition. A bit more than 3,600 miles are on the odometer, and it has been in Hilfiger’s hands since it was sold, which makes it even more valuable.
“My lifestyle is changing,” the 65-year-old told Bloomberg, explaining his decision to auction the supercar at Scottsdale in January. “I don't drive fast sports cars as I used to. These days I prefer driving my Rolls-Royce Dawn or my Maybach.”
Advantage: your billionaire. While Hilfiger’s gotten tired of clambering in through the dramatic scissor doors and revving up the V-12, 650-hp engine, your gift recipient will be able to enjoy all those horses in near-mint condition—plus a carbon-fiber body, carbon-ceramic brakes, and a top speed of 218 mph. Of course, when it comes to price, the advantage goes to Hilfiger; he likely bought it for about $650,000, and you’ll pay millions.
Cost: Experts at Hagerty Classic Car Insurance bet this car could break the $3 million mark at auction.
