I just saw this on the news for the umpteenth time. (Approximately the third) It said it was $1.2 million.

I'm suprised they're saying that they can't rebuild the car. There's a guy up here who had an original GT40 and wrecked it racing, and had it rebuilt to new condition. That's easily a million dollar car as well.

also, this thread should be in CPF.

Not to mention, he allowed one of his Porche Carreras to be crashed for the movie. There's no way I'd do that. Like you said, he seems pretty cool about his stuff

4. I fully agree about materialism. I know I have to deal with it with my stuff. But I also think that God gave us this life to enjoy. And if someone has the means, I see no problem in enjoying, even indulging in things that make us happy.(such as nice cars)
I know you wouldn't shoot him, I know sarcasm when I hear it, and I agree with the whole indulging in nice cars.

1. Who cares whether the market price is 1.2 or 1.5 million? If memory serves me correctly, MSRP (if it exists for something like that) was 600k. Anyway, irreplaceable really shouldn't have a pricetag anyway.

2. Ya know, it's bad enough that Eddie Griffin destroyed such a nice car ON TOP of the fact that it wasn't his, but for him to be so non-chalant about it was disgusting. The guy should be begging for forgiveness, even if he did apologize at a later time. His "no big deal attitude" in front of the camera scream pride.

3. Ferrari should ban that guy from buying any new Ferraris if he is going to let them be treated like that. Owning a Ferrari (especially something like an Enzo, F40, or F50) is a privelage, not a right.

Shoot him in the leg. The good one. Then make him walk.

That'll make him appreciate the gravity of the situation

Totally missed my point. In order to get most places in america by car you generally have to follow a speed limit. What purpose is a muscle car nowadays? Really? Normal cars can push 100 mph on the interstate without too much trouble (function-wise, I mean).

Did anyone else freak out because that guy was standing right in front of the barrier where the Enzo hit?
I thought someone was about to die. Then I thought, "wait, if someone died then this would be about him killing a man." Then I realized, "wait, this is hollywood, the car is obviously more important than the man's life."

Track meets, autocrossing, SOLO racing, etc. There are many clubs and venues that provide a sports car owner the opportunity to drive it to its full potential. Also, not many sports car enthusaists get giddy over top speed. It's about acceleration and how many lateral g's the car can pull. That is where a performance car flat-out whips your conventional daily driver.

Crashing a $1 million car seems like a tough one to make up at the box office...

Seriously, why is Eddie Griffin anywhere near this car again?
