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.
It’s just plain weird: Stefan Eriksson, aka Fat Steffy, took his Ferrari Enzo up to 162 mph one morning on the famous California Pacific Coast 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 ended up in an international web of mystery.
The happy ending to this surreal tale is that Ferrari says the Enzo can be repaired for about $200,000 - $300,000. 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 soon 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.
