Eddie Griffin crashes a Ferrari Enzo

March 27th, 2007 // 67 Comments

Eddie Griffin crashed a $1.5 million Ferrari Enzo (only 400 were ever made) while practicing for a charity race to promote his new movie Redline yesterday. Griffin said:

“Undercover Brother’s good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can’t drive.”

The Ferrari belonged to the producer of Redline, who said:

“I’m glad Eddie came out of the crash okay, but my dream car got destroyed. I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, ‘There’s people dying every day. A lot of worse things are happening in the world.’ “

I dunno man, if Eddie Griffin crashed my Ferrari Enzo the next day’s headlines would read “Eddie Griffin strangled to death and then stabbed and then shot a couple times by angry Enzo owner.” Although that’d be kind of a long headline. They could use a small font or something.

NOTE: Yes, Eddie Griffin actually referred to himself as Undercover Brother.

    If I had a ferrari Enzo I would have never – EVER given it to anyone. Even to take a pic with.
    But I don’t have it – so who cares?

  3. KoRneY

    Holy shit that really fucking sucks.

  4. dtoadie

    LMFAO!!!! DOUCHEBAG!!!

  5. bungoone

    did he not see the barrier? is there any excuse for that?

    and i guess that’s what you get for buying a car for 1.5 million dollars. and the producer is going to need that money because no one is going to see that movie.

  6. Bugman4045

    How fucking stupid. I blame the car owner. I wouldn’t let anyone drive that car until I witnessed his driving skills in a powerful but disposable car (like a corvette).

    Fuck that….I’d beat his black ass back to Watts.

    Could have used some editing CBS.
    (No wonder Katie Couric’s ratings suck)

    Now that i saw the video… ouch… i don’t think there is a way to reapir that poor car… I wish next time celebrity buys something expensive it’s going to be me

  10. crestlin

    ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just choked on my luch… Further proof that black people can’t drive…but at least Mr. Griffin knows that.

  11. jrzmommy♠

    Motherfucker–this ain’t no Eastern Motors ride! Yo job ain’t yo credit!

  12. kamihi

    Ugh I hate anyone who refers to himself as a brotha, I hate anyone who refers to me as a sistah even more.

  13. whitegold

    Damn, that was bad! But how the heck did he hit that barrier? It’s not like it just jumped out in front of the car suddenly!?!

    Loved the expression on his face also. He looked friggin terrified, I can just imagine what was running through his mind while he looked at the $1.5M car he totalled!

    And I still don’t understand why the producer of the movie thought it was a good idea to let him borrow his very expensive, limited edition car? Clearly this guy is a moron!

    And Griffin referring to himself as Undercover Brother, friggin hillarious. It’s also funny for the fact that he thinks anyone actually cares that he was Undercover Brother! I mean, this isn’t like having Reeves refer to himself as Superman or something, we’re talking about barely recognizable Griffin calling himself the equally barely recognizable Undercover Brother. Is that seriously how he wants to be remembered?!

    I’ll bet the owner called his insurance and told them he hit a parkingpole…

  15. badmath113

    In Eddie’s defense, that barrier looked racist

  16. That dude standing on the other side of the barrier was lucky that the car didn’t flip over and hit him. That would have been a pretty sweet death, though. To get hit by a ferrari.

  17. Jimbo

    I have seen Eddie live, I don’t think that little shit could see over the steering wheel.

  18. Jimbo

    McGhee, Would he have been “Tits Up?

  19. Niecy

    That sucks. It would take me a lot longer than 15 minutes to get over that.

  20. Lowlands

    The next time it’s better to let him crash in a Smart.That’s less expensive,i’ll bet the Ferrari Enzo owner agrees with this.

  21. Jimbo

    Sorry FIRST, yes that will be perfect. Will you be coming all natural and bouncing?

  22. crestlin

    He didn’t seem like he was going very fast. Maybe 40mph. But the thing is that a ferrari is not like a normal car. When you buy one, the company send you to driving school just so that you can learn how to handle one. The engine has to be kept at 4500rpm at all times or the car will stall out on you.

  23. lohanhasthebestcokeinCA

    funniest post in awhile. like AWHILE. undercover brother was the shit how coked up do you think denise richards was in that movie? “white vixen” or something? lol

  24. KatieKates

    Undercover Brother is a fucking tool. Look at him biting on his lip. I swear the dude probably took a huge dump in his pants, he was so scared.

  25. armlesswonder

    So I was sitting in the ambulance with the Undercover Brother yesterday after he crashed the Ferrari Enzo and he started spouting all this gibberish,

    “Dat mofo Dave Chappelle never got to drive an effin’ Ferrari Enzo! Dem cats Richard Pryor, Flip Wilson or Redd Foxx will never be da Undercover Brother!….”

    I held his hand and softly reminded him that Pryor, Wilson and Foxx were all dead. He looked up at me with fear in his eyes and asked with a quavering voice,

    “What about Michael Winslow from Police Academy? Dat crazy beatboxin fool was effin crazy…”

    We both smiled softly, content in our memories, and forgot about the accident.

  26. He obviously can’t drive a stick, yet he’s attempting to autocross in an Enzo? They should have brought out something smaller for him to learn on first.

    I laughed so hard when he hit the wall though.

  27. schack

    OOOOOOPS

  28. Jimbo? I answered that on the last post!!!

    God I hate dial-up. I’m always the last one to the party!!! But just you all wait! I’m taking a week off soon and I have cable at home, so I’m going to devote my entire vacation to trying to be first!!!

    Then I’m going to take a handful of xanax and drive around for a while

  29. ViciousMrsG

    Wall Brothers facial expression is priceless…its not worth 1.5 mill!!!!

  30. Shhhiiiit.

    I don’t know what was more stupid . . . running into that barrier straight up or the guy using his Enzo in this film and actually allowing this loser to drive it.

    FUCK.

  31. delahaye

    They’re not 1.5 million fucking dollars, where do people come up with these numbers? Anyways it was the producer’s car and that asshole deserves it for destroying his Carrera GT intentionally.

  32. delahaye

    #22 wtf, Ferrari doesn’t send you to driving school. Seriously, where do people come up with this shit? And anyways, all but one of the other crashed Enzos have been repaired, and some of them have had a lot worse damage than this one, so yes it will be fixed up in time.

  33. NotTheMomma

    What IDIOT let’s ANYONE drive their $1.5 million car?

  34. lisad71

    My hinky meter is going off big time. Check out the dude who is just standing there. If a car, any kind of car, is coming straight at you, you’re gonna jump out of the way, concrete barrier or not.

    My money is on the magic of Hollywood. If Gwyneth Paltrow can look convincingly fat in a bikini and Eddie Murphy can be turned into an old white Jewish guy, why can’t they replicate an Enzo?

  35. diddleysquat

    un-F*CKING-BELIEVEABLE!!!!

  36. woodhorse

    Karma. Straight up Karma. If you own a Ferrari Enzo and lend it to anyone – especially someone named Undercover Brother – you actually deserve to have it wrecked. He was too stupid to own that car.

  37. babygirl5187

    OMG! that’s an awesome fuckin car he just totaled. i don’t even let people hold my phone. if i had that car i probably wouldn’t even let anyone ride in the passengers seat!

  38. L_Dub

    Dumb fucks…both of ‘em…

  39. data_b

    What about the dude that is taking pictures… he didn’t even flinch.
    If I saw a car coming at me thru my lens… I think I would at least jump back.

  40. no1justminda

    You’d think we would all know by now that celebrities can’t drive!

  41. stayclassy

    Hmmmm… I wonder if all the free publicity this crash has received is worth the 1.5 million pricetag??? They’re mentioning his upcoming movie and associating eddie as the star of “UnderCover Brother” everywhere… Looks like the studio just saved a ton in advertising… I’ll betcha it was planned.

  42. buzz_clik

    #16 – I think the real point to be made about that guy is the fact that he didn’t flinch as it happened. He barely moved. That is one cool cucumber right there.

  43. Cardinal Ximenez

    Actually, I’m surprised after he wrecked a car he didn’t own, he didn’t get out and start running down the street. Oh wait, thats on COPS. Bad Boys Bad Boys… I did hear they found a stolen gun under the seat and 50 grams of crack in the glove box. Shalom niggas.

  44. WTFiswrongwithUppl

    Mr. Feather should whack off a corner of Eddie’s fro as punishment. Heh, I love a good UCB reference :P

  45. smiles

    am i the only one who doesn’t give a shit about this? i mean, this was the top story on the news….very sad.

  46. DrPhowstus

    I bet he was busy fucking with the radio. Either that or it’s just more proof how much Italians, even Italian cars, hate blacks. Tony Soprano would have never crashed that car.

  47. dumbphuck

    rear engine car, shouldn’t be too hard to repair. onli problem is its a ferrari enzo so polishing up the dash will set u back a few grand =P

    damnit man how could you fuck up a car so beautiful

    oh well, seein the pics of the crashed bugatti veyron was a lot harder to see. seriously, i’d rather donate money to the car owner than a starving kid on a world vision ad

  48. p911gt10c

    #32: you’re right, the actual MSRP was $643,330, i think the 1.5M they’re getting is probably what the director paid for it.

    #33: that ain’t fixable, it’s a write off.

  49. YouRang

    That is very fixable. This is a stupid publicity story.
