Dumbass.....who the he!! would lend someone like that a Mil? He had to know the guy was/is nutz....so I would assume the guy that loaned the cash was in on it.....they should both go to prison AND have to pay for the car, repairs to the car, the labor to remove the car from the drink, any EPA fines for polluting the water, and all court costs.
And thus starts the countdown to the annual "Darwin" awards....Pig

The only positive thing about this story is that it wasn't the new super sport version. Zero to 100 in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 267 mph. I can only imagine.
