A rare Ferrari Enzo owned by foam-mattress maven Michael Fux was badly damaged in a crash on I-95 in Stamford, Connecticut, Tuesday morning, according to numerous reports.
Fux, 71, was not in the car, which was driven by a mechanic when it spun out on the interstate and smashed into the divider, causing heavy damage, according to the Stamford Advocate. The driver and a passenger suffered minor injuries.
Britain’s Daily Mail has post-crash photos of the car.
Fux became familiar figure in downtown Red Bank both for his investment in the now-closed Blue Water Seafood restaurant on Broad Street and his propensity to park his expensive Rolls-Royces, Lamborghinis and Aston-Martins out front.

More than 300 eye-catching cars, and a handful of motorcycles, shone under the summer sun on White Street in Red Bank Sunday as the Liberty Hose fire company held its tenth annual Robert ‘Doc’ Holiday Car Show.
Foam-mattress maven Michael Fux, right, has been making the rounds in downtown Red Bank in recent days.
A car collector with tastes so lavish that Rolls Royce named a paint for him, Fux (pronounced ‘fyooks’) has been visiting merchants to drum up support for a charity event he’s bankrolling this Saturday afternoon: an exotic car show and entertainment extravaganza that will close a portion of Broad Street for five hours. [UPDATE: Event rescheduled for Saturday, September 10, because of Tropical Storm Irene]
But he’s also been trying to quash what he says is a mistaken impression: that the event is a grand opening event for two-month-old Blue Water Seafood Company, in which he’s an investor, and outside which some of his favorite toys are often lined up on Friday and Saturday nights.

They come from all over Monmouth County and parts beyond the rat rods and tuners, the street rods and customs, the competition-class racers, the blue-ribbon show cars, and the weekend works-in-progress from countless suburban garages.
Tonight, they’ll be lining the streets of Red Bank’s business district in remembrance of a good friend, to benefit of a great cause.
Once a semi-regular Friday night occurrence, Red Bank Cruise Night returns for a special edition presented by Red Bank RiverCenter in conjunction with Friends of Stu Paer an organization co-founded by Frank Woods, borough code enforcement officer and, as a classic car owner himself, an organizer of the annual Liberty Hose Car Show.
The event, which raises funds for the volunteer company’s operations, drew a record 350 cars and motorcycles despite competition from two large car shows elsewhere in the Shore region.
