Idiot that wrecked the Enzo!

Who was that idiot that wrecked the Enzo that every news station is showing? 400 total made ever then this knucklehead creams it into a retaining wall at what appeared to be for no reason (I mean he was not going fast let's face it). He must feel like a heel and I assume owes someone some money for that one.

That's not the first Enzo to gown down in the flames of shame....a few years back one went toes up in south america, on a concrete divider of all things.


Turns out Ferrari drivers aren't as good at handling the cars as ethey used to be.

Anyways, how the hell did he get an Enzo? Didn't you have to have a longstanding tie with the company to get special editions? I guess he bought it used.

Some dude in the UK was also the first to wreck a Bugatti Veyron (on public roads) recently. Having money doesn't mean you can drive.

Wait, I thought almost every one so far has been totaled.

It looks like he was going too fast to enter the turn.

Eddie was using the Enzo, owned by a movie producer, to practice for an upcoming amateur race. I think I would have gotten him something like a spec. racer to practice in, not an Enzo.

Not long ago the EX ceo of Gizmodo trashed an Enzo and tried to lie his way out of trouble saying he was homeland security.

Why, for all that is good and holy (not that I care much about sports cars, but some people do), would you put concrete barriers anywhere near where an actor is driving a car worth a million and a half dollars?

Only if they still use the replica 427 AC Cobras still as their "training" cars.

If you can handle one of those disgustingly overpowered beasts, you can handle darn well near anything.

That's just stupidity by the owner. If you are going to let a novice practice on your Enzo he better have an instructor in the passenger's side to keep him on the track and within his abilities. I guess Eddie's making the movie for free now!

So what does that make... 398 of 400 Enzo's left? That car is basically a streel legal F1 car with fenders.

"It's Dum-ass!"

Most drivers I see can barely handle the horsepower of a V8 Mustang, much less a Corvette or better. That is why parents give their kids Honda Civics these days.
