Celebrity Car Deathwatch: Griffin’s Enzo Crash

March 27, 2007
You’ve seen it, right? The horror of comedian Eddie Griffin nailing a jersey barrier with a one-of-four-hundred Ferrari Enzo? We could be physically sick.

What’s worse, on some video we’ve seen, is how he refuses to break character when explaining to local news crews how he fucked up one of the rarest, most valuable cars on the planet. "Undercover Brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the Brother can't drive," Griffin told reporters, name-checking his 2002 film and making himself look more like an ass simultaneously.

For his $1.5 million accident, Griffin will no doubt get more publicity for his upcoming film Redline, even if he never came close to redlining the Enzo before flinging it into history. He wins no points from the car’s own, though—Daniel Sadek happens to be the producer of his movie.

"I'm glad Eddie came out of the crash okay, but my dream car got destroyed," Sadek said.

The grisly footage, in case you haven’t seen it:
