It's amazing that the cockpit seems to be completely unharmed.

Hitting a telephone pole while airborne at 120mph will do it.

Driver walked away.

People with ferraris and lambos are pretty funny....

THere's a Gallardo in my area and every time i see him drive.....he ALWAYS.....accelerate RIGHT behind those cars in front of him.....left the gap around 10cm. of space

In my opinion i find it really stupid.....if the guy in front of him brakes.....his gallardo would be damaged....which cost THOUSANDS....and the crappy car would probably take few hundred to repair.

399? 396 at most!

The other totalled Enzos:

A red one on ebay long time ago
A red one in Europe, only the wheels were in one piece.
A local yellow one burnt to the ground, and I saw it. Burning CF doesn't smell good.

These were also all over the web.

I would pay beaucoup dollars to get a recording of the call to the insurance company.

"Yes Mr. Erikson how is that beautifull Maserati of your?"
"Ummm...actually it's a Ferrari and since you're asking, I do have a small claim that I would like you to take care of"
"Well Mr. Erikson, you do realise that you have a $5000 deductible, I'm afraid you will have to pay for anything under that amount. Is the claim likely to exceed $5000?"
"Well...OK, I guess I can cover the cost of the windshield".
"Great. Any other damage?"

Thats why you dont own one.

If you can afford one of these, its not going to be on your last pennies, and you arent going to be as infatuated with it as we currently are with our E90's. I've driven a half dozen Ferrari's in excess of 100mph. Their owners were either smiling next to me or enjoying the sun.


Great media for Ferrari none the less. Crash at 120 and walk away.



Thanks for the third repost, or else I would have missed it

I really dont think its a shame. Chances are, the guy that owned it (and crashed it) didnt know how to drive and shouldnt have had it to begin with. I understand that if it wasnt for these filthy rich bastards these companies wouldnt really have a market to build for. Bt nonetheless, if your cant drive and you have an enzo, go to a driving school.

More luck than brains and the benefit of some fine carbon fibre.

This was on the msn uk website earlier this week - he was racing a Mclaren Mercedes SLR. Obviously the McLaren has done the business - Ferrari ought to have learned by now not to mess with McLarens - especially after the most recent F1 season!!!

Iīm not even sure if thatīs totalled. The chassis itself seems mostly unharmed and at the price of an Enzo, it seems fixable.
