Stat of the Day

1.5 – Million dollars. That’s how much a rare Ferrari Enzo that actor Eddie Griffin was driving cost, as he totaled the car at Irwindale Speedway. Griffin was practicing for a charity race to promote his upcoming film, Redline, when he drove too fast around a curve and couldn’t avoid the wall.

“Undercover Brother’s good at karate and all the rest of that, but the Brother can’t drive,” said Griffin, referring to his 2002 movie, after the accident. Why is he cracking a joke when anybody’s dream car just got totaled, you ask? Because it wasn’t his.

The Enzo is owned by Redline executive producer Daniel Sadek, whose exotic car collection is featured in the movie.

“I’m glad Eddie came out of the crash OK, but my dream car got destroyed,” Sadek said. “I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, ‘There’s people dying every day. A lot of worse things are happening in the world.'”

Only 400 Ferrari Enzos were produced, all between 2002 and 2004.
