A Ferrari 612 Scaglietti has decided that it needs to improve the environment by bursting into flames.
If you were positive that the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is safe from the spontaneous combustion problem, think again, because this particular model is showing otherwise. The guys from Wrecked Exotics are saying that this vehicle has overheated and this led to massive flames which completely destroyed it. The incident took place in Ontario, Canada, and judging be the opened door, we can say that the driver has managed to save himself. Hopefully the insurance will cover the incident.
Ferrari has been producing the 612 Scaglietti between 2004 and 2011. The model was designed by Pininfarina, under the close watch of Frank Stephenson, and it was offered in a two-door coupe body style, getting a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout.

It was designed as a successor of the 456 M and it was replaced the by the four-wheel drive FF. Under its hood, the carmaker added a 5.7 liter V12 engine, producing a total of 533 HP (397 kW) at 7,250 rpm and 589 Nm (434 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,250 rpm. Power was sent to the wheels through a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration took 4.2 seconds and top speed was 320 km/h (199 mph).
