    IRWINDALE, Calif. -- Eddie Griffin crashed a rare Ferrari Enzo worth $1.5 million into a concrete barrier while practicing at a racetrack Monday, destroying the car but escaping uninjured.

    The comedian was practicing for a charity race to promote his upcoming film, "Redline," when he drove too fast around a curve at the Irwindale Speedway. Video footage showed the red sports car screeching before it ricocheted off the barrier with heavy damage to its front.

    "Undercover Brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive," Griffin, referring to one his past films, said after the accident.

    The film's publicist, Wendy Zocks, said Griffin was "doing OK."

    "He walked away completely unscratched, but probably a little shaken," Zocks said.

    The Enzo, valued at around $1.5 million, was owned by the executive producer of "Redline," Daniel Sadek, whose exotic car collection is featured in the movie.

    Sadek said that the car was damaged beyond repair and that he had "mixed feelings" about the wreck.

    "I'm glad Eddie came out of the crash OK, but my dream car got destroyed," Sadek said. "I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, there's people dying every day. A lot of worse things are happening in the world."

    Only 400 Ferrari Enzos were ever produced, all between 2002 and 2004.

    Griffin's credits include the comedies "Undercover Brother"; "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" and its sequel; "Date Movie"; and "Norbit."

    I saw that clip on TV last night. It looked like he turned the wheel, and the car just kept going straight. If thats how one of those handle, i don't think i want one!

    So was it a set up with a fake car to promote the movie, or was it the real thing?

    Like i could ever HAVE one, hey???
    Seriously..........If i had one and a half million, i could think of LOTS better things to buy then one of those cars! I'd honestly rather have a JEEP then that thing. I love taking the back roads in the woods up north, and that "fancy pants" car would NEVER hold up! :thumbsup:
