Default One more Enzo totalled

Just read the news that comedian Eddie Griffin has totalled his Enzo.

The price of the Enzo must have just increased by a few hundred thousands, considering its 395 or lesser now.

As per this update i dot think the owner would have felt the pinch.


"The car, one of just 400 manufactured, belonged to the film's producer, Daniel Sadek. Sadek estimated that the car was worth $1.2 million, and seemed philosophical about the loss, saying he was just happy that Griffin was unharmed.
The real-estate investor has put up his own money for the $26 million picture, and allowed one of his two $200,000 Porsche Carreras to be destroyed for a scene in it."

OK the car is supposedly being used in a new movie called 'Redline', and by the looks of these pictures, Eddie sure did totalled the $1.2 Million Enzo Ferrari!

Oh man that is one crash. Doesn't seems like a low speed crash though.

Well a bit off topic i was waiting for RedLine to be released for a long time and in the trailer Eddie didnt even drive any car so its better for him to keep his foot of the car and let Monica drive

Watch the trailer:

Default Enzo before crash

Saw the same Enzo few months back at LA Auto show...They were promoting the movie Redline

Some pics....


You can also see other cars in the background....Porsche Carrera GT, Saleen S7, wrecked Porsche Carrera GT. They also had a Koenigsegg CCX on display (all these cars belong to the same guy...the producer of the movie Redline).

Man, look at the understeer and the tyre squeal! What crappy handling, methinks. Why on earth would a USD 600,000 Ferrari plough ahead in a straight line when its front wheels are pointing somewhere else?

tyre squeal shows that the tarmac was good and the understeer thats really bad. how do you get so much understeer in a supercar like that. Man I think he was doing like 60kmph for that hard hit. how can you understeer so much at that speed. just pressing the gas you should be able to correct it i think.

I know easy to say and not easy to do when your in the situation but it is real crappy for a supercar.

Its very much possible when such a car is given in the hands of an idiot. Crappy Handling you say? Hehe... Good joke. And its USD 1.5M not 600,000.

It all depends on driver skills.

"Brother can't drive". Sure as hell he can't.

Why would you call him an idiot? Did you see any specific signs which prove him to be one?

Haven't you ever met with an accident while speeding? If not then consider yourself to be lucky!

there is no actual price now on the car as its all been sold out. Figures quoted are based on estimates of what an Enzo could fetch now.

Since only 400 or 399 were ever made and 4 or 5 have been totalled I guess the price would only have gone up.
