Ten super cars we’d love to fly down PCH by Staff Introduction
By now, we’ve heard the story about the man named Stefan, his Enzo, a bump in the road and the ensuing almost-mythic tale about a bloody lip, a booze buzz, a smashed up Enzo and a very, very, puzzled police force.
And oh, yeah: the Swedish mob and Homeland Security.
The whole thing is just plain weird: Stefan Eriksson, aka "Fat Steffy", reportedly took his Ferrari Enzo up to 162 mph one morning on the famous California highway, caught air, hit a pole and…walked away. The pole, by the way, ended up back in the ground, upside down. Police, who started this whole thing just wanting to know who drove the Enzo into a pole, are now trying to figure out just why there was a magazine clip from a gun discovered near the wreckage, why a Scottish Bank was claiming that they own the Enzo, and why Scotland Yard said another of Steffy’s collectable cars was listed as stolen.
The happy ending to this surreal tale is that Ferrari says the Enzo can be repaired for about $200,000 - $300,000. Chances are good that the famously charmed car just may wind up in a collection somewhere. As far as what happens to Eriksson – aside from driving a short bus in the San Fernando Valley – we’re not sure. Whatever it is, we’re confident that he’ll be riding high and loving life soon enough, driving the latest exotic that catches his fancy along PCH, Bloody Mary in hand and a mysterious German buddy by his side. In order to help him get back to his happy place a bit faster, we put together a list of our Top Ten Crash and Burn Exotics for a special, uh, shopping guide.
