Fabio on Crash: Gimme a Brake

4/12/2009 3:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fabio clearly no longer has the Midas touch. He insists the cause of yesterday's Ferrari crash was brake failure.

Fabio

A rep for Fabio just gave us a jingle, claiming Mr. F was driving the $300,000 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano during a sanctioned event for World Class Driving, when he hit the brake pedal on the dreaded Mulholland Drive and... nothing.

And Fabio's rep says there's a witness -- an unnamed passenger in the car who heard Fab scream "I have no brakes," and then... crash.

Driving a performance car faster and faster around the curves on Mulholland Drive until he finally loses tire adhesion. At that point, brakes don't matter, he is still going to slide into the bank.

He should have learded to drive before he took this car out.

...I Can't Believe It's Not Massengill.

(And it's a Fiorano, not a Scaglietti, starts at $309k, options out at around $350k.)

Sorry, not buying the "no brakes" story, Fabio. We drove that exact car with WCD earlier that morning. We were able to stop!

Sure Fabio... because the brakes on a Ferrari so commonly break down, huh? The brakes on a Ferrari are top-of-the-line, usually Brembos... The brakes/brake pads are usually carbon/ceramic and will run you a couple of grand. Sound like the kind of quality that breaks down that often? LOL

I'm just picturing Fabio having a womanly scream.

No brakes? then how did it stop with that little damage, I hate when celebs send their trained seals in to do ego control.
