That twisted tale of a Ferrari Enzo that ended up very twisted itself has developed another kink. The Los Angeles Times, hanging on the story like a Rotti on a pig’s ear, says the owner of the now-in-pieces Enzo might have been videotaping his 162-mph run down the Pacific Coast Highway. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the possible existence of a video of the event, in which owner Stefan Eriksson and a man now known to be Trevor Karney wrecked a million-dollar Ferrari Enzo in spectacular fashion on the PCH on Feb. 21. The Enzo tale is a loopy one: Eriksson, a former videogame executive, was said to be blowing a 0.09 on the breathalyzer. By his report at the scene of the accident, Eriksson was a passenger in the car, not the driver — that, Eriksson says, was a man named “Dietrich” who fled the scene. Add in a Scotland Yard investigation into Eriksson’s missing Mercedes-Benz SLR, potential impersonation of a police officer, and a reclusive defendant holed up at his Bel-Air estate, and this one still has all the makings of the follow-up act to Phil Spector’s murder trial. Stay tuned to the sensationalized news broadcast of your choice.
