    Not old news. The rally in which the crash supposedly took place only started 3 days ago and is still going on.

    Exactly, you may be thinking of the red enzo that was wrecked a couple of months ago that was shown here THAT....is "old news". This Gumball incident just happened and apperently a Lambo got hit hard doing a high speed run in Morocco.

    Crazy stuff. No casualties at least thank God.

    I know that a Yellow Murcielago crashed into a tractor.
    A red 360spider crashed
    A dodge Viper crashed

    Not totally sure on the Enzo... still searching forums trying to find out...

    The big crash happened to a modified Ford Escort... this thing was FAST! It was keeping up with the Enzo to 150mph+ but then flipped and rolled at high speed. The full rally-spec rollcage saved the driver and the co-pilot and they walked away.

    Lots of crashes this year :(

    I've been following the Gumball updates in Spanish forums and it doesn't seem there was an Enzo crash in Spain. I've read rumours but nothing else. hard to tell even if the Red enzo made it to Madrid. I've seen pics of the Madrid stop and there was jus a Yellow Enzo. Which, by the way, I'm not sure it made it to Barcelona, even Marbella. I know it's confusing but I think the yellow enzo crashed in Morocco... not sure though... ¿?¿?¿?

    Check out the Europe section of Fchat for pics and reports of the Gumball.

    What's for sure is that about 30 Gumball racers were stopped by the local police near Barcelona. 4 of them were arrested, accused of illegal street racing. They said in the news that some of the racers were clocked at 300 kph, with averages of 200+ kph in certain sections.

    Apparently, the tractor had been putting out a mating call.

    How the rumour mill works!


    The Tractor incident involved a red 360. The Lamborghini collected a slow moving vehicle on a dual carriageway heading to Cassablanca from Tanger and was only slightly damaged. The escort story is about right, one of the crew had 200 stitches in his face.....

    The viper flipped heading for the port at Nador, both crew shaken but ok.

    As for the Enzo in Spain......

    The last I heard was that they were stopped for speeding and taken to the Police station, on leaving they flew off to impress a gathering crowd and collected a speed bump, damaging the undertray and sump.

    Can't confirm this, but the othere I saw with my own eyes!

    In the Gumball race there were 2 Enzo's with an accident. One of them got a stone in the air intake an had to give up. The second one got a flat tire. But with some little repairing the could go on.

    on friday : Battery dead
    on saturday : clutch broke
    this comes as no surprise that something in the car will brake after driving through europe at a cruise speed of 200 kph .
    but this is not what u want happening to your million dollar car! specially when you are paying for just a car no luxuries or anything .
