    I've just recived this mail from a friend who works for a insurance company in the US:

    I'll bet you'll be suprissed to find out there are 4 wrecked enzo's in the world!

    #1 - Tampa Florida, Lincoln blew red light and the enzo t-boned it
    #2 - Huston Texas, Guy was driving down the road, and engine caught on fire
    #3 - NÜRBERGRING Germany, Guy was on a turn and lost it, slid into a wall
    #4 - Alflak Germany, Guy was speeding on the road, swerved to miss other car, and flips it.

    Does anybody have more info on these?
    Thanx

    Ok the only way the one in houston "Caught on fire driving down the road" is if the tree it hit was holding a can of gas
    check Texas regional section and look for houston ferrari spotters...
    The one in Fla is the most posted picture in the history of F chat look under GFD and "oh no Enzo" there are around 30 threads there....
    the others i don't know much about

    If your dad is a lawyer, the engine DOES catch fire before you hit the tree! ;)

    OMG who cares? I'm so sick of crashed car threads. each one other than the one burned to the ground will be repaired. almost all vintage ferrari racers have been in accidents. And they are repaired and worth millions. Why is an Enzo crashing SUCH an object of fascination?

    Hi Wolfgang
    No, sorry - this is all I know - I also was wondering about this Alflak place, never heard of it - but I know there are zillions of small places in Germany.

    I will try to get more info on that other in Germany - date, color etc.

    There's also a rumor that a British owner of a red Enzo recently totalled his car somewhere in France.

    OK, thats good to know.....(I really mean it) so now we're down to two again.
    I found that mail a bit wierd to from the start, so that was the reason I asked you guys.
    And I'm P R E T T Y sure YOU would have heard of that Nurburgring crash, if it had happen.
    But what about this Alflak or what it was called, is that a place in Germany or is it like somone else said an insurance company?? hehe Alflak.....lame name.

    You friendly told me that a flack is an insurance company.

    Sorry, english is my second language and I couldn`t see that should be the same.
    I also don`t know any company with this name and my dictionary don not translate flack as an insurance company....a bit :confused:

    guys, Aflac is a name of an insurance company that sells supplemental insurance like medical insurance and such in the U.S.. as far as I know they do not have anything to do with cars.

    a Flack can be a sort of publicist or press agent, amongst other things.

    It's an American company, they have comercials with a duck, who quacks "Aflack" instead of "quack-quack"!

    Oh, try Aflac! Maybe I spelled it wrong!

    Why is that such a big problem? Ferrari's are just cars, they get crashed too, only difference is that most Ferrari's are restored afterwards, no big deal IMO

    I would not enjoy flipping an enzo... Especially the part about sitting upside down and waiting for someone to flip you back over again so you can get out. ;)

    The guy down here found BOTH doors jammed, had to kick out the front windshield. Still red side up!

    Motivated, I would say, by the flames he could see behind him, licking up from the engine bay!

    I am interested how ''could care less'' has been adopted by many people...you are trying to say that you don't care at all so it should be ''couldn't care less''. Or am I being stupid? Sorry for the OT.

    no, noony, you're right. It should be couldn't care less. could care less is definitely sloppy English. and from an English major too [gasp]
    Edit: after doing some brief etymological research: it seems that "could care less" is an Americanism, and in England you all say what makes sense, which is "couldn't care less."

    Agree with Dr Bob!

    What thrill do you get discussing and posting pictures of other people's misfortune?

    Peter that is true!

    The Blue DOT was not on the Houston car, IMO.

    It is missing in the after crash photos, clearly!

    Thnaks for making that distinction.

    We did find a burned Carbon fiber DOT, clearly aftermarket.

    Drivers BEWARE!

    Peter was making a joking reference to a hugely funny thread awhile back, where someone asked about a blue paper "dot" sticker left on the mag of a new car, and it's meaning.

    We eventually agreed it should be left on and renewed with the 30K service!

    Sorry for the confusion. HTH
