Holy ******

I cant even tell that the first pic is that of an Enzo! This picture almost got tears to my eyes. Man, right car wrong hands. This dude has a history of destroying Ferraris...previously an F50 also smashed to smithereens

Hey guys,

well not like its any consolation, but the pictures of the burnt enzo on the truck are fakes in my opinion!

Look at the Enzo alloy, and then compare it in size with the wheel of the truck.....
Also our photoshop boy has put in a second alloy if you look on the right...looks fishy.

And think about this> if the fire was so strong that it could reduce the carbon fibre to shredded ashes then why would the rubber on the tires still be intact *

cheers

ps - and grim, we all know u hate the enzo and ferrari, but if you dont have anything nice to say try not to say anything at all.

Guys, doesnt this also say something about the huge amount of electonics going into modern cars? With a whole lot of wizardry going into them, the driver must be feeling invincible like someone mentioned before. No matter how you drive, the electronic brain is always there to help you. I guess physics cannot be defied, but only its thresholds can be extended. I guess it would be safer if the cars let you know gradually that you're approaching the limits, so that you can back off. Instead they keep you safe till the limits and then suddenly let go, which could make un-experienced and even experienced drivers find it difficult to catch the car. What say?

Heres a very tragic looking Enzo accident pic. Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, the driver passed away on the spot.

Judging by the damage, the car was going at insane speeds. It has F1 type construction which is one of the safest
