There appears to have been very little thinking going on.

I hope the stupid twit's insurance company denies the claim. What a freakin' moron.

Ugly? The most beautiful exotic ever to me. Ranks just slightly behind lush cleavage.

And the "worth up to a million dollars" is typical media ignorance.

What a crock!

The owner blew a .09 and claims some German named Dietrich, who ran off after the crash and vanished, was driving.

An Enzo!? I thought it was an F40! What a waste either way.

It's a testament to the car's design the driver and passenger weren't hurt even as the car split in two. Was it lucky? I say yes.

That is painful to look at.

What's going to be painful is what happens when those commuters catch up with the driver. There are no alternate routes available for most of PCH out there, and even when they can get around they go way around Robin Hoods barn to get to work.

I watched some auction where an Enzo sold for around 180...

I loved how the video kept saying ONE MILLION DOLLARS (they need a little mini-me holding his pinky to his mouth when they do that)

Maybe not. Brand new they cost $640k. If he could find another one it would easily be double that.

Yep, it's true.... they are selling from 1.2 - 1.5 mil., an F-car dealer threw me out of the dealership and some F-car owners weren't so nice to me.... I did a lowball offer for a used Enzo (w/ 3k miles on it) last year.....

According to the folks at the F and L car forums, the owner is Stefan Erikkson.... I believe the same guy who was in trouble with the law a few years ago.... used to be a CEO for a gaming console....

I'll call the insurance company for that Enzo, maybe they'll sell it to me for cheap..... talk about a neat project car.....

Maybe an old ratted F40 or GTO, but no way can you find any Enzo anywhere for "around 180"

I have to say one thing -

Where did the auction took place?

I'm fairly sure, it wasn't an Enzo, the least expensive one I've seen was $1.1 and the dealer won't go below it..... if you can find one under 800K let me know... Keep in mind, they were only $650k brand new but when I pointed that out to the F-car dealers, they were offended.....

Thanks.....


PS: I've been looking for one for over a year, ended up with an L-car instead...

Well, that's one of the good points about a Ferrari. They are actually designed to keep from killing you if you crash them at 100 + MPH.

Link Posted: 2/22/2006 6:56:06 AM EDT
A totaled Enzo sold for over $400,000 about 18 months ago. The pictures I've seen of that wreck are NOT an Enzo. To every media mouth jerk any red Ferrari that is red and not a Modena is an Enzo. Idiots.

If you manage to crash a Ferrari, because you can't handle it, there should be a mechanical hand that deploys out of the dashboard and bitch slaps you until you gain some sense.

100+ mph, with light traffic, on a limited access road, in a Ferrari....................... shouldn't equala crash.

No arguement here.

Idiot crapstains who buy these cars without knowing how to handle them or where to use them ought to be banned from owning them.

The "passenger" was drunk. Stupid fooker.

"Eriksson "had a .09 blood-alcohol level, but if he's a passenger, that's OK," Brooks said. "But he had a bloody lip, and only the air bag on the driver's side had blood on it. The passenger-side air bag did not. My Scooby-Doo detectives are looking closely into that."

I'll keep an eye on Ferrari Chat but that front wheel is definitely NOT an Enzo wheel. And exotic Ferrari owners are not known for butchering up million dollar cars with after-market wheels.

Maybe not the majority of them, but then again I'd bet that most don't get legally drunk and then play Fast and Furious on the highway either.

Of course they are.

Lots of celebrities and celebrity types put new wheels on the car FIRST THING.

People who actually love cars as opposed to wanting drivable testaments to ego don't mess with Ferraris. But the ego types can and often DO.

I have seen brand new sports cars shipped to a place for 50 or 60 grand in custom crap before the owner ever takes posession of it.

It's not unusual to take off the original wheels/tires on a Ferrari to keep them from getting damaged on the street or track.

LoL, about 6 months ago I saw a show, one of those customize my car ones. they should how they had to make special wheels because the Enzo has one nut wheel hubs.


Their are two kinds of people who buy these exotics, poeple who like to drive fast, and hip-hop asshole who like to look like they are going fast. These assholes are the same that butcher cars on Pimp My Ride and the other crappy shows.


Oh, there are also the retarded Saudi princes who do stunts on traffic packed roads.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:15:00 AM EDT
Garden - several of the Enzos have been wrecked. Google or check Ferrari Chat and read about the two guys in Italy that tore an Enzo in half at estimated 150+ mph. And on a two lane road at night nonetheless!!

As for the after-market wheels I would agree that for the track some owners would have multiple wheel and tire set-ups. But, I'm not sure there even is an after-market wheel for an Enzo and the guys that own those cars typically don't let them anywhere near a track. (Those cars are rolling status symbols and not likely to used like a lightweight racer.) In fact they sign an agreement as a condition of purchase not to even let a car magazine test or take the car to a track.

The bottom line is those cars don't have computer controlled suspensions to "help" keep a driver out of trouble and 600+ HP in a 3,100 lb. car is virtually uncontrollable. Just wait until the guys start turning off the active control in the new 505HP Z06s...... we will see the same thing. Horrific wrecks.

The car was owned by Stefan Eriksson. According to many sources it is an Enzo. Even Wikipedia lists him as an owner.

Based on the attached article he may not be able to afford one soon.

You would be lucky to find a broken F-series car for 180K. They were made to be collectables, and there is not a ton of parts around. Not to mention a lot of these cars get wrecked by goobers like we see here.
