    Only 2800 miles on the clock of this Stradale. I did get a ride in it in Europe pre-disaster.

    All I did was let my wife try to parallel park it.

    Actually I promised not to divulge any details, sorry guys, except nobody was hurt.

    i love how it's got a number on top of it "102". as if there were maybe a dozen 360CSs in the shop and they had to know this one from the other eleven ;)

    is that the "happy owner" of the car?

    i'd be curious to see how they deal with the stripe repaint. we discussed this back when about how any damage would result in a tough-to-match situation (looks like the roof is okay, but not the other two pieces).

    total suckage. my condolences all-round.

    doody.

    102 was a a black Panoz before the parallel park and I do believe that's the lady after her makeover!

    Very Well Done !!!!

    What is with the 102 on a block on its roof? Auction car maybe?

    I know this isn't Europe, as the truck in the back ground is a Suburban.

    This will probably be up for sale in the next month or so as a 360 CS...immaculate...never been wrecked...

    ....was it the torque or the horsepower that caused the crash?

    Actually he mistakenly left a torque wrench laying on the floor in front of the passenger seat, (as we all know, a 200 lb guy and a torque wrench can easily develop 400 lbs ft of torque!) and the car became absolutely undriveable with all that extra torque! shi*, even Schumacher himself couldn't have handled all that torque.
