Double Jeopardy: Iraqis destroyed Uday's Ferrari, too

The International Criminal Court in The Hague has apparently rejected our petition over the destruction of Uday Hussein's Lamborghini as an indictable war crime, so we've come back with more evidence. (Just to be clear, we're not mourning the death of the car's notorious owner, but we maintain our position, in jest, that exotic Italian automobiles should be spared the ravages of war.)

The Rambo Lambo certainly wasn't Uday's sole daily driver. In fact, he was rumored to have a garage with some 2,000 cars in his possession. This little piece of double jeopardy reveals the destruction of a Ferrari 550 Maranello, which apparently suffered a worse fate than it did at the hands of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys II. The empty husk of a burnt out Ferrari is all that remains after a rioting mob reportedly set fire to it and left it for dead. We'll share the sentiment that we can't really blame the Iraqi citizens who, in their newfound freedom, lashed out against the property of the late tyrant, who evidently purchased this two-hundred-thousand-dollar car while they were starving and he was cashing in on the humanitarian supplies furnished by NGOs that was supposed to be going to them.

And so, Ferrari aficionados, 550 Maranello s/n ZFFZR49B000112891 met its demise. With a bit of elbow grease and a sheet of thick glass, that engine block would make a beautiful coffee table. We've got more pictures after the jump, but we recommend you get a box of tissues, because the carnage is a bit of a tear-jerker.
