The Ferrari 458 Italia is proving to be a hot commodity - quite literally. Ten vehicles have caught on fire in the past three months.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is proving to be a hot commodity - quite literally.
In the past three months, ten vehicles have caught on fire. While six were involved in accidents that could have started the fire, three others have burst into flames for no apparent reason. The tenth vehicle was destroyed in a warehouse fire, but it remains unclear if the car started the blaze.
Speaking with the Telegraph, a Ferrari spokesperson stated "We are taking all the reports very seriously and are looking into them but we are treating them all as separate incidents."
If you're thinking the recent rash of spontaneous combustion will hurt 458 Italia sales, think again. There is currently a three-year waiting list for the 570 PS (562 hp / 419 kW) supercar.
