Eddie Griffen crashes a 1.2 Million Dollar..........

Comedian Eddie Griffin wrecks $1.5M car Tue Mar 27, 9:54 AM ET

IRWINDALE, Calif. - Eddie Griffin crashed a rare Ferrari Enzo worth $1.5 million into a concrete barrier while practicing at a racetrack, destroying the car but escaping uninjured.

ADVERTISEMENT

The 38-year-old actor-comedian was practicing Monday for a charity race to promote his upcoming film, "Redline," when he drove too fast around a curve at the Irwindale Speedway. Video footage shows the red sports car screeching before it ricocheted off the barrier with heavy damage to its front.

"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.

The film's publicist, Wendy Zocks, said Griffin was "doing OK."

"He walked away completely unscratched, but probably a little shaken," Zocks said.

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

Sadek said the Enzo was damaged beyond repair.

"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.

Griffin's film credits also include "Norbit," "Undercover Brother," "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" and its sequel, and "Date Movie."

I hate seeing dumbass pieces of shit ruining beautiful cars.

There were only 400 Enzos produced - period. There have to be thousands of b-list actors out there. I feel bad for the car

Okay, is it 1.2 million or 1.5 million?

Not that it matters much because the car is gone. Headache raised a good question. Hope Bono is okay!!1

People like those clowns don't get one iota of sympathy from me. Pair of dickheads, honestly.

The dude standing just behind the barrier was pretty lucky.

I can appreciate it when people wreck a car like this when trying to drive it to its limit (on the track!), but this crash just seems silly. My grandma can crash a Ferrari better than that.

I saw Eddie Griffin on the news after this happened and he didn't seem all that sorry. I know it was an accident, but he still ruined someone's very expensive car. I would have expected a bit more remorse.

it`s all marketing.
I never heard of Eddie Griffin - know he is in the news again all over the world (even here in Germany) - that's a little bit more worth than 1.5. Millions for an actor.
