A British bank is asking Los Angeles Superior Court to enforce more than $1.3m (€987,600) in civil judgments against an imprisoned Swede who wrecked a rare Ferrari Enzo after speeding at more than 160 mph in Malibu.

Capital Bank of Chester, England, alleges that Bo Stefan Eriksson (aged 44) failed to pay back a loan for the Ferrari and another for a Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR purchased by Eriksson’s former company, Gizmondo Europe Ltd.

The bank filed the lawsuit on Thursday.

Eriksson was sentenced in November to three years in prison after pleading no contest to embezzlement and being a felon with a firearm.

He is serving a concurrent six-month jail term after pleading no contest in October to a misdemeanour charge of drunken driving.
