How do you fit 5 people in two cars made to only seat 4? But regardless that is what you get when you put young people behind the wheel of cars like that.

It just seems so unrealistic, and I can't find any story like that on CNN like it says.. But I guess it could be true. 5 people with 4 seats, 2 million dollar car that daddy just lets you take out.. Don't know. But those cars are messed up, that's for sure. I was thinking maybe they were crashed on a track test or something and then someone got the pictures and spun up a story..

they usually won't release names of minors like that...and the 5 person/4 seat thing (maybe one was in the trunk )

I was just about to type that exact same thing...........4 seats, 5 people, sounds fishy.

I dealt with a LOTTA rich folk in my day and none of em would let their kid drive, let alone take out the "world's rarest car" with their friends.

Only if the one in the "trunk" was a 2 month old baby.......those cars don't have squat for trunk space.

I'm pretty sure I've seen that pic of the wrecked Enzo before.

I'm with you guys.

The 5 people thing sounds totally wrong in those cars. My friend had a Countach and you could bearly get 2 people in there (both of us are over 6 feet tall, however). But there is NO WAY my teenage daughter would EVER get behind the wheel of either of those cars if it were me.

Although the damage seems to be consistant to the discription of the accedent, I would tend to believe those cars would handle better than that at speed. I don't buy the guy running inside to check on his wife and call the police either. That does not sound very realistic. This is a cell phone society and I would bet he would whip that thing out like James T. Kirk if he saw a wreck that spectacular first hand.

That looks like cut and paste from this web site that hosts photos of exotic wrecks.

it's possible (especially if you're a teen)

I used to cram 4 people in my regular cab ranger (back in high school) it was made for 3 officially but only really fit 2

and my porsche 914 has 2 bucket seats,
I had 3 people in it quite a few times

hahah! check this:

on wrecked exotics i looked up both cars. The enzo had a similar story to the one in the article, but claimed a rumor.

but if you go to to the lamborghini:

http://www.wreckedexotics.com/murcie...2002_004.shtml

it says he had it for less than an hour, then wrecked it then bought a new one.

I feel like im on mythbusters or unsolved mysterys!

Good work.

It is amazing to me that it lists no injuries. Wow.
