I saw this on the news last night and was trying to fing a link for it. Thanks.

From the 'Net:
Eddie crashed a rare Ferrari Enzo while practicing for a charity racing event on March 27, 2007. He walked away completely unscratched, but the $1.5 million Enzo was damaged beyond repair. [1] The owner of the Ferrari, producer Daniel Sadek, said he had "mixed feelings" about the crash. "I'm glad Eddie came out of the crash okay but my dream car got destroyed," according to the BBC. When asked by reporters his reaction to the crash, Griffin laughed and exclaimed, "Brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive".

friends don't let morons drive million dollar exotics. :rolleyes:

Man, that really was not good. I would not know what to do with myself!
Not surprisingly, Griffin didn't seem all that bothered that he totalled a $1.5 million collector car. How the Producer/Owner kept from strangling Griffin is beyond comprehension.

With the car being worth that much money ! , its hard to believe its totaled... Unless parts arent available , it looks repairable , unlike the one last year that hit the telephone pole in California & ripped the car in 2 & sent the engine a 1/4 mile down the highway !!
Never heard of the comedian either , & if its not his car , why is he driving it !!!

Even though it may be repairable everyone knows that the car will NEVER be the same!!! If I ever owned a car like that I would never let anyone drive it for the sole reason if you can't replace it then you can't drive it. Also Eddie Griffin is the pimp in the Deuce Bigalow movie.

I've never heard of the guy before either, apparently he's not that well known. Says he's been in some movies and does a stand-up gig as well. I'd say this was a great PR move, but it makes him look like an idiot, so that isn't true.

The car was owned by the producer of Griffin's latest movie, which is being promoted through a charity "celebrity" race which is why Griffin was driving that car; he was practicing for the race.

Um, maybe the producer should have let him practice in a Camaro???? :cool: ;)

I saw an article yesterday that said the car belonged to Griffin. For the life of me, I couldn't understand how that guy could afford an Enzo. Now, it makes much more sense.
Any guy that would buy a car like that and then go out and race it, is OK in my book. But any guy that would buy a car like that, and then let somebody else race it, has got to be an idiot! :rolleyes:

If Tony Stewart asked to drive my Enzo, the answer is "sure". Mario Andretti? No problem ............. if Carrottop asks, I hand him a bus ticket.

Then again, people have actually heard of Carrottop, and he most likely can cover the 1.5 large for a replacement Enzo.

Eddie freakin' Griffin...... the new poster boy for stupidity in America.

He doesn't even have the class to apologize publicly for being an idiot and wrecking the guy's car.

Eddie Griffin has been in quite a few movies and TV and stand up shows... I am very surprised that you have not heard of him..... or maybe it is a New England blackout on Eddie Griffin?

Apparently the blackout went nation-wide:
