We reported earlier today that a rare Ferrari Enzo went off course yesterday while running the 2011 Targa Newfoundland and wound up swimming with the fishes in the Atlantic. We even had a video showing what happened leading up to the Ferrari's off-road and then underwater excursion. We didn't, however, have many pictures, but Autoblog reader Renee had a father on the scene who took these pictures for us of what happened immediately after.

When a car takes a dive like that, you've got to fish it out. That's exactly what was done with the Enzo, first using a Jeep Grand Cherokee to pull it onto shore and then switching to a big crane to lift it up and onto a flat bed truck. Surprisingly, perhaps shockingly so, there's no real visible damage to the Enzo. Maybe it's the bright black-and-yellow paint scheme throwing off our eyes, but we don't see any damaged bodywork in these images. That said, we're sure the Enzo is hurting on the inside, both its mechanicals that generally don't like being dipped in salt water and the interior that prefers Armor All to the Atlantic Ocean.

Check out the pics for yourself to see the sad state of affairs, and we've reposted the video for you after the jump.

      Perfect Jeep commercial anyone?

        Yes, but not exactly perfect for Ferrari though, and considering they both belong to FIAT I don't see that happening any time soon.

          Jeeps and Ferraris aren't cross-shopped, and it would be a boon for FIAT to be able to link Jeep and Ferrari like that - mostly for jeep. Ferrari has enough brand cachet to go around.

      For Sale: Slightly used Ferrari Enzo. Recently washed - very clean! Spilled a little water inside - just needs some Febreeze.

      I'm surprised to see so little jeep fan comments....Though, this will be one very interesting police report.

      Be nice to A) Have a modified Enzo B) Have the cash to not go suicidal when you crash it (I assume most Enzo owners do C) Enjoy your car in one of the best races there is Guy has the right attitude. Glad to see he's out driving and enjoying his car. And please, can we spare the comments about how "he can't drive," "He doesn't deserve that car," "More money than talent" and all that stuff? I need not remind you that most of us aren't successful racing drivers and would get embarrassed out on a track trying to drive anything with limits that high. He's allowed to enjoy his toys without you passing judgement.

        Had it been a primitive electric toy, it may have electrocuted the driver to death (electricity plus salty water=death) so I too would feel bad
