Redlining an ENZO (Part 2)

OK, even though its truly not racing news per say I couldn’t help but write about the blunderings of comedian Eddie Griffin writing off a Ferrari ENZO. And now a friend has sent me the following video link of the “accident.”

And I really hate to say this, but after watching the video twice, complete with COMMERCIAL… It totally appears to be a publicity stunt…

In what seemed like a surreal scene out of the Fast ‘N Furious Tokyo
Drift movie, Griffin casually says to the camera’s: “Should I go around again?”

And the cars owner seems a little too non-chalant about loosing an extremely RARE Ferrari! On top of this they managed to total two half million dollar Porsche Carrera GT’s in the making of the film. So that’s approx. $2.25 million dollars in destroyed vehicles just to make a movie…

  1. Grammar nazi checking in.

    There is no such word as "loosing". If you're going to write a blog, know this:

    LOSE = opposite of win; opposite of found
    LOOSE = opposite of tight

    You cannot LOOSE control of your car.

  2. I spoke to a friend who worked on the movie Redline, and he said that the cost of the Enzo was, in fact, built into the budget. They chose Eddie Griffin because of his 'comedic' status. So, yes, this was definitely a publicity stunt... I hate Hollywood. Kill an actress next time! They're always making more of those!
