What's the name of the movie again?

Edit - I thought the same thing but not with an Enzo. Maybe a Lambo 640 which can easily be replaced.

that's a helluva publicity stunt. The guy's not allowed to buy a Ferrari anymore. Once you wreck a limited edition ferrari, you get blacklisted.
I think it's a bunch of dumb rich people with no respect.

Not A PR Move

Dude, did you see Eddie's interview afterwards. He was shook for real! And he's not a good enough of an actor to pull that off.

Plus, look at the vid. He tried to steer out of it, but it understeered and crack!!!

He crashed. He's embarrassed. And the director, the owner of the car, feels like an ass for letting someone drive a car that humbles the most saavy drivers.

On the flipside, I'm sure he will be able to repair it.

If you wreck my Enzo, you need to find and get me a new one! I would not want it repaired!

when that dumb guy crashed the Ezo on PCH Ferrari offered to completely rebuild the car for something like $400,000. i don't see why they wouldn't do the same thing here.

If they fixed the one that was crashed on PCH for $400,000 this one should only be about 100K that other one was facked up bad.

the silver car that got wrecked was not an Enzo.

It may not have been a full working car. I do not know.

There was a real Enzo wreck at the Fontana race track this weekend that a friend told me about that was shown on the news this past weekend.

i'm also starting to doubt this whole poor attempt to promote this movie and have hard time believing those cars (including the enzo) weren't just kit cars modeled as super cars.

this also reminds me the release of reno 911 the movie. they came on the red carpet in cop cars and crashed them against each other. i bet this was the message they were trying to send too, if we show them a dumb fuck crashing a highly exotic [fake] supercar, people will get what our movie is all about: dumb fucks crashing exotic [fake] supercars.
