The Ferris Bueller Joyride Occurred In Real Life

Leave your car with a mechanic or a valet and there is an understanding that said serviceperson will not take the car for a joyride, especially when that car is a Ferrari. A mechanic in Greenwich, however, decided to pull a Ferris Bueller valet move and took a buddy for a spin. It did not end well. (Though everyone was okay, physically.) 

According to NBC Connecticut, the 2003 Ferrari Enzo fishtailed on an entrance ramp on I-95 an inflicted "heavy damage." Pour one out for the Ferrari and drink one too the mechanic for following his dreams.

The car's apparent owner is New Jersey millionaire, Michael Fux, who made his fortune in the mattress industry. The vehicle was one of only 400 in the world and retails for an estimated $400,000 to $1 million. 

This is what we imagine the joyride was like before the incident.
