I was standing beside this car in London a week before it crashed... Check my pics in the "Rides" section!

That guy is somewhat of Mike Tyson of UK.
He totaled another Ferrari recently and I think an 18 yr old was found dead in his place as well.

This is what happens when you combine someone who probably has an aggressive personality to begin with, with lots of money and steroids.

Prince??

I detest that arrogant bastard! Although all I know is what I see on tv and that could all be for show. But from his track record - driving that is - he does have issues.

Is that Carrera GT yours or your parents'? (Same thing, really.)
If so, please marry me.

My only question after reading this article is "how did anyone survive this accident?". I think the only answer would be German engineering. They say that due to the high speeds in Germany, the cars are also tested in high speed crash tests. This is just unbelievable when it comes to safety.

This also gives North American police, more ammo in regards to speed enforcment. If you look at all the conditions, you will see that it was not anywhere close to what is necessary for that type of speed. 2 lane road, on-coming traffic, cars on the road, no passing zone...it's no doubt he is an idiot and has no respect for human life.
