Here's a photo of a Ferrari 458 Italia non-metaphorically catching fire on a Paris street.

The 458 Italia's driver first noticed the fire in one of the rear wheel wells when it began to spread quickly. Luckily, a passer-by handily equipped with a large fire-extinguisher happened to come by promptly enough to put out the flames.

No one was hurt in the incident but damage to the vehicle was substantial. The cause of the fire remains unknown.

Scary to witness how flammable such a pricey super car can be.
