Celebrity Car Deathwatch: Enzo Strikes Out

February 22, 2006

We really weren’t expecting to break out the CCD so soon after Shannen Doherty christened it—but we may already have to push her aside for fresher, younger paparazzi bait. The L.A. Times, and lots of onlookers, reported that a Ferrari Enzo smacked into a telephone pole at about six in the morning, cruising easily past the 120-mph barrier. The driver was basically unhurt—but the Enzo was DOA, cut in half by the accident, its engine laying out on the PCH in Malibu (we smell a trend!) like so much fresh road kill. The sole man at the scene, one Stefan Erikssen, told cops the driver ran away on foot, but the LAPD couldn’t turn up anyone and suspects Erikssen was alone, street racing at the time. (No we don’t know who he is, but it’s Malibu and he had an Enzo, so he must be connected somehow to Kevin Bacon.) We shouldn’t have to tell you how fast or how expensive an Enzo is, but it’s a moot point, since reconstructing the real Enzo Ferrari would be cheaper and easier than rebuilding this puppy.
