The Enzo Ferrari sportscar Eddie Griffin wrecked during a recent charity race will be on show when the funnyman launches his new action movie Redline on Thursday. The star was taking part in a race at the Irwindale Speedway in California last month when he lost control of a pal’s prized possession and crashed into a wall. Griffin and the $1.2 million car’s owner, a producer of Redline, have denied reports the car crash was a publicity stunt for the film, but now they’re using the wreckage to promote the movie. The smashed car will be on display outside Mann Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, where Griffin will host the premiere on Thursday, from 11 a.m. today.
A movie spokesman says, “The car will lay in state surrounded by security for several days leading up to the premiere of the film. Surrounding the car, in tribute, will be several high profile sports cars as well as floral, candle and tribute displays to the car. It’ll be a very special memorial service.”
SMH, I told y’all that shit was fake!
