Given my love of cars, I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry.

Someone got it on video, and there's no evidence of any bird anywhere near the incident.

I'd post a link to the vid, but there's some rather crude language on it.

Stupidity knows no demographics! He "had" to pick up his cell phone while driving? Why?

If he can afford a 1.5 million dollar car, you think he might be able to afford a hands free device......

Bluetooth, anyone?

Cellphone: $100

Tank of gas for the most expensive car in the world? $90

Driving it into a salt marsh and hydrolocking a $200,000 engine and having it become a viral video? Priceless.

OH LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL,

I just saw the video.

That was too funny. Sorry....but was funny.

In Feb of 2006 some nitwit crashed and ENZO Ferrari on Pacific Coast Hiway.

Look up the Gumball 3000 Rally (http://www.gumball3000.com/).

Ultra rich people doing unbelievably stupid things with supercars, while driving 3000+ miles in 5 or 6 days.

This is exactly my thoughts when I saw the picture. Ugh...I was sad. Such a finely tuned machine wasted on a rich idiot...:rolleyes:

I first read about this race in an issue of Sports Illiustrated in the 70's, it was a fun read and I was totally jazzed about it.

A friend and I drove from So Cal to Omaha in about 32 hours? Does that count?;):eek:
