Note to Self: Never let Eddie Griffin drive your car.

Did anyone else see Eddie Griffin's Ferrari Enzo crash...:cwm16:...:cwm11:

I would have linked a video, but it is incredibly easy to find.

Enjoy!

Nick Hogan had a lamborghini he was driving catch on fire and pretty much burn the whole thing. I think it belonged to the owner of the label his sister Brooke is on. Apparently the battery and some other stuff had just been changed because the owner hadn't driven it in 3 years, and so he said Nick could drive it to give it some run time, and an electrical fire started.

That's understandable. That's too much car for 99.9% of the population. I believe that like BMW and Dodge Vipers, Ferrari has courses that new owners are strongly advised to take. I took the BMW driving course and it was a lot of fun doing donuts in a 325i, which compared to my Jag drives like a honda civic. But that's no damn Ferrari.

LOL, that would be funny.

The guy whose car it was (also the producer of the movie, Redline), said he was upset, but went into his trailer to think about it and decided that worse things were happening. I don't see how they can say it's unrepairable, though. The guy bought a car that cost $1.5M. I'm sure he has enough money to throw at whatever problems the car now has to get it fixed/rebuilt.

yeah it's probably be a fortune to fix.......i think all the enzos are all carbon fiber unibody cars? so all the reworking of the carbonfiber?!? but like big mack said....the guy probably has the money to fix it
