get a tissue before you open this one......

so every summer we have this 2200 km road rally circle the province (targa newfoundland) lots of really nice cars shooting down closed public streets, really awesome to watch for sure....thought I'd post a few pics of a little incident that happened last week....apparently enzo's can float!!! 1.7million in the drink. both driver and navigator walked(swam) away.

2. didnt care that he wrecked it
3. TOO MUCH MONEY to care

yeah, one of his quotes in an interview after it happened was "its just a car". the video was pretty f'd watching it go in. stabbed the gas, hit some gravel and turned it around backwards into the ocean.

I wonder if he is going to part it out. I could take some part of his hands.

Its a Race..

So speed is good.

Also its a Race car, Its going back to Maranello and they will rebuild the motor and the wiring looms and it be back on the track in no times.

Least it did not go through a house or tree, then it would really need some repairing.

If they guy was not mentally prepared to see is Million dollar car get destroyed then he would keep it in a concrete vault 30 miles below a Swiss Alp.

Being from Cape Breton I always knew and watched Targa Newfoundland. It's cool how it's done on rural streets and attracts a lot of nice cars.

All I can say about the Enzo is Ouch.... but that's racing.
