MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the circumstances behind a spectacular crash on Pacific Coast Highway that destroyed a rare Ferrari Enzo estimated to be worth more than $1 million.

The red Ferrari was going at least 100 mph when the driver lost control and struck a power pole, investigators said. The car — one of only 400 made — shattered, with its engine coming to rest on the highway and its wreckage scattered.

Sheriff’s investigators identified the owner as Stefan Ericksson, 44, of Bel Air, who escaped the wreck with only a cut lip.

“For $1 million, you get a very good passenger-safety system, and apparently in this case it did work,” said Sgt. Philip Brooks of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities said Ericksson told them he was a passenger and the driver was a German acquaintance he knew only as Dietrich, who he said ran into the nearby hills. A three-hour search failed to turn up anyone, and officials said they were skeptical of the account. Only the driver’s side air bag deployed, Brooks said.

“He destroyed one of the finest cars on earth, maybe the finest,” said Ferrari owner Chris Banning, a Beverly Hills writer who is finishing a book on the cult of sports car racing along winding Mulholland Drive.

“It’s like taking a Van Gogh painting and burning it.”

Chris Banning is the type of pussy that buys one of the fastest cars on earth and then never pushes it. The only thing sadder than that car getting wiped out is the one that never gets driven hard.

If you aren't going to push it then save the money and buy a f**king Yugo Chris.

I think if you're able to afford a million dollar car you'd be able to pony up the cash to run it around a track once in awhile.

i am going to punch in the damage on my total loss program tomorrow and see how many parts need to be damaged for it to be totalled. I know I had a viper that was leaking oil and it came back totalled.

I'll bet that was the ride of that guy's life. There's no way to compare. He's lucky to be alive.

http://www.wreckedexotics.com/special/enzo That link also has a bunch of updates on the investigation of the crash. There's some intersting twists. It sounds like it could be from a James Bond movie.

The guy had two of the Enzos, and the red one he crashed was obtained by defrauding a Scotland bank. It wasn't even his.
