Bankers love hot cars, but this is taking it to extremes.
A Ferrari Enzo, one of the world's most sought-after supercars, burst into flames and burned to a crisp on a road near Kelowna a few weeks ago.
Nobody was hurt, that's the good news. The bad news is it's pretty hard to replace an out-of-production automotive icon, and one can only imagine the insurance deductible.
So who's the owner of the unfortunate Enzo? According to the Calgary gossips, and those obsessives who track supercar ownership, it's none other than Tom Budd, a one-time investment banker with GMP Securities, who has a home in the Okanagan.
Mr. Budd made millions advising oil companies on what to buy and sell, and helping them raise money in stock markets. He's a well-known car nut, and known to take some high-speed turns around a track from time to time.
