Video: Eddie Griffin's Ferrari Enzo crash
Comedian Eddie Griffin crashed a rare $1.2 million Ferrari Enzo into a concrete barrier during a practice run for a charity race on Monday. The event was planned to promote the upcoming film "Redline," which centers on a group of rich men who race expensive supercars to the limit.
The movie's tagline is "Fear Nothing. Risk Everything," and the film features several crashes of actual cars. Two Porsche Carrera GTs were destroyed during filming.
The Enzo was owned by "Redline" producer and real estate investor Daniel Sadek. Several supercars owned by Sadek -- including the Enzo -- appear in the movie.
Sadek hoped to create some hype when he announced his own $400,000 Porsche would be destroyed in the film. "We don't want to do CGI. We thought it would create some hype. People will know we're destroying a real Porsche "” not a model, but a real one." Sadek said at the time.
Sadek might not have cared about his Porsche, but Monday's Enzo wrecked was a harder pill to swallow. "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."
"Undercover Brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive," Griffin said.
