Mechanic Wrecks Millionaire's Rare $1M Ferrari

John Michael Hoda

This rare $600,000 Ferrari was damaged in a crash on Interstate 95 in Stamford on Monday.

A rare Enzo Ferrari spun across three lanes and crashed on Interstate 95 in Stamford Monday, inflicting heavy damage on the prized million-dollar sports car.

A technician for Miller Motorcars, a Greenwich-based luxury car dealership, was driving the expensive car when it crashed on an interstate entrance ramp on Monday morning, state police told the Stamford Advocate.

Police said the 2003 650-horsepower car began to fishtail on the northbound entrance ramp, struck the bridge wall, then spun across three lanes of traffic and crashed into the center divider.

The driver and a passenger were not seriously injured. Police issued the driver a ticket for failure to drive in established lane.

Michael Fux, a New Jersey multimillionaire who made his fortune in mattresses, owns the car, according to the state police release.

Ferrari built just 400 of the cars, which were named for its founder Enzo Ferrari and often resell for $1 million. The car, the highest-end Ferrari produces, can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and tops out at more than 217 miles per hour.

The dealership declined to comment on the accident, according to the Associated Press.
