In one of the most expensive unplanned publicity stunts in movie history, actor Eddie Griffin wrecked a Ferrari Enzo while practicing for a charity race intended to promote his new movie, Redline. The owner of the car, Daniel Sadek, is also the executive producer of the movie. Sadek has a large exotic car collection which he, foolishly in our estimation, let be used in the movie. According to Sadek, his Enzo is damaged beyond repair. There's video of the wreck here. And here's a picture of an unwrecked Ferrari Enzo, just to reassure you that there are still a few left.

Oh, and Eddie Griffin wasn't injured in the crash.
