Another spontaneous combustion example has affected a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta this time, in Turkey.
If you though that owning a supercar is all about glamour and high speeds, think again, because the spontaneous combustion problem is real, and so are other issues. This particular exotic model has started a fire under its hood and its driver had to pull over after noticing the flames coming out. The incident, which took place on the E5 highway in Turkey, has made the driver pull over and since he has noticed the flames right away, he managed to get out unharmed. The fire squad has arrived at the scene in no time and they managed to pull the fire out before flames expanded to the rest of the car.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has replaced the 599 GTB and it has been officially unveiled back in 2012, during the Geneva Motor Show. The supercar has been designed by Flavio Manzoni, from Ferrari’s Styling Center, in collaboration with Pininfarina, and it is being offered in a 2-door coupe body style, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar is 4,618 mm long, 1,942 mm wide and 1,273 mm tall, with a weight of 1,525 kg. The 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, found on the FF and on the LaFerrari too, is providing a total of 730 HP (544 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph).
