Ferrari 360 Spider bursts into flames in Mexico

A Ferrari 360 Spider has been recently destroyed in a fire in Mexico City after what is believed to be a mechanical fault.

Supercars and spontaneous combustion go hand in hand and the first recorded incident, which took place this year, is coming all the way from Mexico, where a Ferrari 360 Spider has definitely seen better days. According to the local automotive media, the Italian supercar in question has burst into flames for no obvious reason. This is believed to have had a mechanical fault which led to the flames. Then again, considering the fact that this is Mexico, a criminal hand might be blamed too.

The Ferrari 360 Spider is the drop top version of the Coupe and it’s taking its power form a 3.6 liter V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 400 HP (300 kW). The 0 to 60 mph sprint is made in just 4.4 seconds in the supercar and top speed has been reduced from 189 mph, in the coupe, to “just” 180 mph. The supercar stands at 4,477 mm long, 1,922 mm wide and 1,235 mm tall and it has been produced between 1999 and 2005, in Maranello, Italy, in its solid roof version.
