Crashed Ferrari Enzo Owner Planning 20 Car Return to Targa Newfoundland

Three months ago, Zahir Rana crashed into the Atlantic Ocean while racing the Targa Newfoundland Rally in his $2 million modified Ferrari Enzo. The owner of exotic car dealer ZR Auto, Zahir Rana emerged from the accident without a scratch while his Enzo suffered $100,000 in damages.

Then, thanks to a video of the crash uploaded to YouTube, Rana and his Ferrari became an internet sensation overnight, garnering more than a million views in its first week. Although he received criticism from those who mocked his ability to pilot a Ferrari as well as those that disapproved his expensive hobby, Rana answered his critics by shipping his Enzo back to Germany for repairs and for the fitment of a new, more powerful, 950-hp motor.

During an interview after the incident, Rana said, “It gave me another thing to live for.” In fact, Rana adds, “Gee, this was so much fun, I’m going to do it again. Gonna do bigger, better next time.”

Rana is well into laying the groundwork for his return to Targa Newfoundland next year. Preparing his refurbished Ferrari, Rana will be joined with a surprising number of fellow racers as well. Rana reveals, “Next year I’m going back again with 20 cars. All my friends and clients are now envious. They said, ‘oh we should have gone.’ It should be great. I’m looking forward to it.”

Watch the video of Rana’s crash and the Ferrari’s recovery from the ocean after the jump:

Exotic Racers Play Bumper Car Smash up in China GT Cup Race [Video]

The Romans and Greeks knew a thing or two about entertainment. Tragedy in particular. We might not like to admit it, but everyone likes seeing terrible things happen.

That’s exactly what happened recently in the China GT Cup series race in Macau, with a long line of Porsches, Lambos and Ferraris smashing into a wall (and each other) in a high-speed corner.
