Stefan Eriksson has lost yet another supercar in his dwindling collection of elite automobiles. The first we all recall was his Ferrari Enzo that disintegrated upon impact with a telephone phone on the Pacific Coast Highway. This time his wife is responsible for the loss, as she was pulled over in Beverly Hills driving the family McLaren SLR without a valid driver’s license while the car was still sporting British plates. Beverly Hills’ finest promptly impounded the Mercedes.
13-year-old Spyder Dobrofsky was on the scene during the incident and snapped this pic so we could all share in Mrs. Eriksson’s finest hour.  It’s good to know that megalomania runs in the family.

      That was not his wife.

      I think we just solved the question on who was racing the enzo. The police said it was a benz, so it would only make sense that he was racing his wife before he crashed the enzo.

      I destroyed an injected '58 'vette, and a '66 GTO ragtop tripower 4-speed back in the day. I feel much better now. ( Yea, right.)

      Yes, well obviously if GM could make a supercharged 5,439-cc 24-valve 90V-8 engine giving out 617 hp, and drop it into a carbon fiber coupe with scissor-opening doors, then maybe the Fat Sweed's wife wouldn't have to resort to illegally importing her cars from Europe, would she?

      Screw the Merc, check out the BMW 2002 in the back ground (only one of BMW's best cars). Okay true it isn't a 600 hp monster, but still a very fine ride even in today's technologically superior arena.

      Tsk Tsk. First the Enzo, now the McLaren. Must be nice to that kind of cash to throw around.

      Here is a link to a good article about top 10 "Crash & Burn" cars, and both of Fat Steffy's recent losses made the list: CarTV's Top 10 Crash and Burn Cars.

      Any guesses on which of his cars goes next?

      Why are all the blogs lately on this site a few days to a week old?

      I can't decide whether Spyder Dobrofsky is the coolest name ever or a really cruel parental trick. Either way, though, kudos to the kid for getting his shot in the LA Times and all over the Internet.

      Unless the Erikssons were related before they got married, this isn't a case of megalomania running in the family.
