Enzo for sale (body work needed)

Well there goes a $1 Million
Looks like this guy is going to need a lawyer on this insurance claim (and criminal)

So is it safe to assume it was stolen?

You see the construction. You could still open the passenger side door.

I bet I could sell that door and pay off my boxster. The wheel alone is probably worth a couple thousand.

Kinda looks like a Fiero now.....

The passenger was injured and was bleeding from the mouth. However, there was no blood on the passenger side airbag. There was blood on the driver's side airbag however. The passenger said he let some "German guy" drive it. The driver ran away after the crash. Hmmmm....... yeah sounds legit.

Either, Ahhnold was driving, or this guy was drunk and driving so he slips into the passenger seat.

watch the video. They say the guy was racing an SLR. That would have been something to see.

You know the sad part is, that Enzo, torn in two pieces is still probably worth 100K

said passenger was most likely the driver and quick jumped in the passenger seat after the crash and said "what happened!!!? I was just sitting here and this guy wearing a big floppy hat and a wig jumped into the driver's seat and we sped off off at 155 mph and then this guy in a SLR caught up to us and he had an RPG and aimed it at us, and then..."

So, I'm not up on my street racing rules. Does this count as a 'kill' for the SLR?

Is that poser or poster? Sooner or later, I'm going to have a problem where I need to seek advice from the tech gurus on this board and I don't want to risk alienating them by providing insufficient info. So, I took Deliriousga advice and put it in my signature.

By the way, if you send an email to Suncoast Porsche service center with your VIN, they will provide you with the invoice, warranty work and dealer service information. It helped me out alot since I wasn't smart enough to buy a used Boxster with impeccable service records.

with a price tag of 1M, maybe it wasn't totalled...
1M can buy a lot of Bondo.

Are they sure it wasn't actually a divorce settlement?
Which half do you want, the one that steers or the one that goes?

So the driver - or passenger, depending on who you believe - was a guy involved in the development of Gizmondo, a handheld that was supposed to rival PlayStation. What bothered me the most in this story is that another owner of an Enzo is Britney Spears. Britney Spears! I wish potential buyers of high performance exotics had to be qualified, competent drivers to buy such vehicles. I'm sure Britney, baby on her lap, is clueless as how such a fine piece of machinery - the Enzo! - should be driven properly. But then it looks like Stefan didn't know, either.

Actually, I thought there was some kind of "qualification" for buying an Enzo.
Probably boiled down to the size of the purchaser's bank account, however.
Seems to me I read that the purchase of a Ferrari was one of the bones of contention between Spears and her hubby, boyfriend, whatever (Federline, was that it?). He bought it, she had to pay for it.
