Default 178mph Enzo wreck in Italy...

Anybody else following that bizarre story? The facts are few and far between so the speculation is running wild. Most of the alleged facts I've seen are on some Ferrari chat forum or whatever it's called. Apparently this wreck happened at night (the pictures are taken in daylight) and did not involve another vehicle. The car is torn completely in half which is leading to much criticism of Ferrari. Idiocy in action!

You would think these Sun. AM QBs think a car designed to go fast should also be designed to crash at high speeds. I guess the laws of physics cease to exist if you pay enough for a car.

And what's this silly crap about dying while you're having fun. Hell, I want to die when the fun stops!!

As well it should! Unless of course, the car was registered as such - but....... fat chance of that

Sad situation for whoever's involved but is there any possibility it was Michael Schumacher driving this piece? . I just don't understand how he doesn't seem to have enough sportsmanship in him to finally retire and go race World Sportscar or something else....at least it would let others have a small chance at total wins someday? . Just my 2 cents Canadian (almost 1.7 cents US) ~ Pete
