Given the relative scarcity of cars like the Ferrari Enzo (349 production units built, an indeterminate number destroyed), you're unlikely to encounter one. On those rare occasions when such a thing does happen it seems even less likely that said owner will say, "Hey, wanna go for a ride?" Given the improbability of such events, it seems even more bizarre that our friend Jonny Lieberman found himself in such a situation this past weekend at the inaugural 24 Hours of LeMons in Houston, TX.

It turns out that Matt Groner is the owner of the Enzo best known for being cracked up by Eddie Griffin. We reported on the car being repaired and offered up for sale a couple of months ago and it's still available on eBay with a Buy It Now price of a mere $1.2 million. So what was Groner doing at LeMons? Why racing of course. According to Jonny, he rolled up to the track in the Enzo and hopped into a Neon to compete in the crap-can "race."

      I have seen one of these on the road in person in the nyc area. I was a lot more excited to see a 288GTO at a car show a few months ago which is even more rare!

      $1.2 million? And it's been wrecked? These jokers better do their research, in todays market I can get an almost never used, mint Enzo for, at most, $1.2 million.
      It'll be for sale for a long time yet...

      As a former Neon owner (1st and 2ng gen) I reserve the right to LOLOLOL at this:

      "...he rolled up to the track in the Enzo and hopped into a Neon to compete in the crap-can race."

        That's awesome. Enzo street car, claptrap Neon race car. That's how you do it, son!

      The idiot who wrecked first time not only a bad driver but a bad comedian as well. Did anyone really knew anything about him before he crashed the Enzo? I think it was publicity stunt. That reline bs was on a role of wrecking exotics because their plot and cast sucked so they had to do something.

      Dont even try and say Eddie Griffin isn't a good comedian.If you ever seen his show or any of his stand ups and you think he's not funny,you have no sense of humor.He's one of the funniest comedians so dont even give me that crap.
