hmmm.... this is probably the most well known Enzo destruction of all Enzos.... Good thing about the carbon fiber tub though... looks completely intact... if you pick up the pieces and put them back together, it may still work..

anyhoo, this brings up a question i always had about cars with doors that open upwards... if the car flips and lands upside down, how do you open the doors to get the ocupents out? Since this car is made of caron fiber, would the jaws of life be able to cut through it?

More whacky news on the destruction of this Enzo. It seems that there's a lot of shady happenings there. Gun magazine now found.

CF is strongest when pulled or pushed along with or parallel to the weave. If you have a sheet of CF, and you push on it from either flat side, it will bend and eventually break. The CF tub in the Enzo has its strengths from all of the curcves and ridges that are built into it along with most likely the honecomb material that is most often used for the base.
