Another Enzo lost

So with the new track, a new rally was started locally where supercar (and ish) owners get to hotlap the track for a day, then tour many of Utah's national and state parks. The final day consists of a closed off section of highway where they get to do a top speed test with the UHP running radar for them.
Well, Richard's car is done. I know it doesn't have his name in the article, but the only Enzo in the state belongs to Richard Losee. This is a pic of my son standing in front of this very car at the Gumball event: https://www.fireblades.org/forums/att...0-img_0173.jpg
I liked this quote from the short article:
Quote:
The Ferrari was the only car involved in the crash, and will probably be a total loss.
Um, yeah - you think?

Re: Another Enzo lost

Those that take Road and Track have seen and read about this car. I searched for some links to the articles, and here are but a few. His car is actually somewhat "famous", as he is a very generous person and has allowed it to be used in many tests and articles. He had somewhere around 30K miles on the thing. Drove it all the time.
He is also an accomplished driver having raced karts and autocross for many years, including championships.

Re: Another Enzo lost

The article makes it sdound like it wasnt even the owner driving it, but instead it was someone who paid a grip of cash to a charity to drive the Enzo.

Re: Another Enzo lost

Enzo would have wanted it that way. Better it crashed whilst driven hard than sit in a garage doing nothing for it's life..

You're f%#&king up my Chi...

Re: Another Enzo lost

After looking at the picture, I was surprised that they said that it is "probally" a total loss. Exactly what left is reusable? It pic looks like a scrap heap.

Re: Another Enzo lost

Question: I know they only made a very limited number of these things but do you think Ferrari would replace one that had been crashed or is this guy completely out of luck?

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

I believe the owner would be **** out of luck, only around 400 were built that I'm aware of!

The frame still looks to be intact, the body panels exploded on impact which would be expected from carbon fiber. Wonder how fast the car was going when the impact occured?

Look, lean, believe!!
