Casualties at the Gumball 3000 rally

so a couple of days ago the Gumball 3000 started in Paris at Trocadero Square (no i wasn't there )
wich saw a very impressive exotic machinery line-up including several Ferrari's amongst them:
575MM silver
360 CS red
360 Spider black
360 Spider black
360 Spider dark blue
360 Spider red
575MM grey
Enzo red
Enzo yellow
360 Spider red
360 Spider grigio alloy
360 Spider black
360 Modena grigio alloy
360 Spider red
355 Spider blue
360 Spider red
360 Modena blue
550 Maranello silver
355 GTB red
360 Spider grigio alloy
360 Modena yellow

a friend of mine was there but he was slightly late, so several cars had already left, so there might be more ferrari's
also repordetly the red Enzo crashed in Spain and is out of the race and one of the 360 Spiders crashed badly in Morroco take a look at the pic

No yellow Enzo I believe...
...I've just read some live reports. Nobody said anything about the Enzo would be out, only the spider from the pic you showed and some older cars. They are not as fast as you acpect, they probably want to keep it in one peace...

There are also a lot of weird cars like a Fiat 500 and a 2CV... :-? Also a Stradale is in...

Check the pic for the Enzo...
