A very expensive mistake...

Check out this video of Eddie Griffen wrecking a Ferrari Enzo... after that guy in california split his in half around a telephone pole and now this, the number of Enzos in the world is down to 398 at the most.... Can you imagine wrecking a million dollar car!?

Turns out the Enzo didn't even belong to Griffin. It was the executive producers, who is making the movie Red Line with Griffin in it. :eek:

Can you even imagine! If i were that producer I am sure I would have killed him (However, if I was a proud owner of an Enzo I am 100% certain that NO ONE else would be behind the wheel of it)!

I mean, it is not like you are just going to go out and buy another Enzo!

I still think this was done as a publicity stunt. Look at the way Eddie G is dressed; no fire suite or anything on a track??? I think this is how to get 10 million in publicity for 1.5 mm. He does that to the Camaro concept and we will FIGHT!!!

Cheers to all,

He had the wheels turned full right at some pretty good speeds there. Doubt it was a stunt. If this was a publicity stunt, I'd "take care" of the person who thought it up. NO ONE purpously destroys an Enzo for a little air time. And you can't just go out and fix up a car like that. What a moron....sickens me.

It "sickens" me as well Tag.

A friend of mine mentioned that that's what insurance is for...to hell with the insurance money. I'd want to replace the Enzo with another one! With only 400 made, that may be tough to do. Then again, anyone who lends out their Enzo to someone who obviously shouldnt be behind the wheel of a car like that, doesn't deserve to own one!

I agree. It is not like he is just going to be able to go down to the dealer and pick another one up. As stringent as Ferrari was choosing who was allowed to purchase an Enzo, I would have to say that if this is a stunt, the owner was just black listed by Ferrari.

It was a promo event for the movie 'Redline'

I feel no pain for the producer, anyone who puts a car like that in the hands of an inexperienced driver needs to understand the risk.

It does suck for sure, but he gave the green light for Griffin to drive it

Also, if it was a stunt, $1.5 Million can buy quite a bit of advertising
Then again, insurance may pay off the car and the advertising is free. Hmmmmm

They wreck cars/trucks every day for movies TV, this Enzo is no different IMO.
Hell, it may have been a kit car that LOOKED just like one if this is a publicity stunt...

I know there's a few insurance companies who won't insure you if you are racing. On top of that, being a 1.5 million dollar car, I bet the ins co might have put a clause in there that only the owner is covered. Sure, the owner could be covered in case of the veh being totalled. But, let someone else in there and you be dropped!!! With no coverage!

Yes, the people were selected to be the owners of the Enzo by Ferrari. After this, I pray he is black listed like Casull had said. If this was a stunt, this was a blatant slap in the face to all at Ferrari.

Being a car guy, I just find it hard to believe that anyone would purposely wreck an Enzo, regardless of the cost asociated with it. It says in that article that this same producer had 2 of his Carrera GTs wrecked in previous films, but come on, those are not Enzos.

I guess it doesn't really matter, the fact remains that the market value of an Enzo just went up becasue there is one less in the world.

And there is the point that it could have been a kit car made to look like an enzo

I never knew he had two Carrera GT's wrecked in two previous films...quite possibly because THEY WEREN'T ENZO'S!!! Which means after his second wreck, he didn't get the recognition he wanted. Here's how I see it": he couldn't figure out why people weren't noticing the two previously wrecked luxury cars and why he wasn't getting the free publicity. The jerk finally figured it out and said...."Let's do the Enzo this time....that'll make it to CNN and the entire internet!"

So now he's had 3 luxury cars destoryed. BLACK LIST :slice:

Well, I'm not convinced it was a hoax... . But if this producer has to resort to these kind of "stunts", apparently he nor his movies are worth wasting time on, IMO.

Also, if he's also wrecked other exotics, the guy is an IDIOT! Yes, they're just cars to alot of people, but if you need these kind of "stunts" to promote yourself and your movies, obviously you aren't a very good producer.

I hope this moron is "black listed" before he wrecks another fine automobile.

It has indeed been confirmed that it was an Enzo, not a kit car.

But, 3 times in a row??? That's just irresponsible! I wouldn't want to sell a car to someone who's going to go wreck it for a little publicity...especially when there's only 400 made. Of course, money is money. But, I would want to make sure the 1.5 MILLION dollar car would be taken care of by an owner who cares about luxury vehicles.

Of course, this black listed talk is all based upon the "idea" that the wreck was a hoax for publicity. There's no tellin. I see exactly what you are saying, Killer. Again, if it was done on purpose, then I'd feel that way.

OK. I read my post out loud. That only accomplished waking my Golden who was sound asleep next to me. :p

I stand by what I posted. "Shit happens", as you say, and I don't know the circumstances behind the wrecked Porsches, but if you're handing over the keys to your $1.5 million exotic to someone who obviously needs to work on their driving skills, IMO, you need your head examined.
