Another case of spontaneous combustion is coming in, this time from Mexico, involving a Ferrari 360 Spider.
If you thought that the new year will not bring you any cases of spontaneous supercar combustion, think again, because an expensive ride has recently burned to the ground in Mexico. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the Italian supercar in question has been travelling in Paseo de la Reforma, in Mexico City, when flames started eating its rear end. The driver has managed to walk away unhurt and no one was injured in the incident, which is more than we can say about the red supercar.
The Ferrari 360 is the predecessor of the F430 and it has been put together in Maranello, between 1999 and 2005. It was offered in two body styles, coupe, the 360 Modena, and roadster, the 360 Spider. Both of them had a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, packing in a 3.6 liter V8 engine under their hoods, connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed electrohydraulic manual transmission. The total output produced was 400 HP (300 kW) and 373 Nm (275 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the model needs just over 4 seconds. Top speed stood at 304 km/h (189 mph).
