      Italia Ferrari 458 on Fire in Central Paris

      http://www.autogespot.com/nl/viewima...6072010101358]

      But it will happen! Are you not so long in possession of your new car, a Ferrari 458 Italia in this case, he just flies into the fire! Separate but very true. The photos were uploaded on Autogespot.com and that we can now show you. The owner was driving around in Paris when he suddenly noticed that one of the rear wheel arches started to burn.

      How the fire as may arise out of nothing is still unclear. It is good to see that the fire started in the wheel and soon was expanding. Fortunately there was a passer-by who happens to be a big fire extinguisher with him and he was able to extinguish the fire, according to the spotter, "to prevent further damage and explosion. How high the cost will be and what the damage under the panels will be is unknown. It is also striking that most new ones quite flammable. When the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano on the market just flew spontaneously on fire.

      Do supercars inherently spontaneously combust? Because it seems like this happens way too often.

      Your comment is foolish and unnecessary.

      Lots of cars suffer from fires. Chevy Malibus and Honda Civics don't make the news when they go up in flames though.
