Ferrari F12 Berlinetta catches fire in Turkey image

Another spontaneous combustion incident is bringing forward a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

Supercars are continuing to catch fire for no obvious reason and the newest one to be involved in such an incident is this white finished Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. According to the Italian vehicle has caught fire on a highway in Istanbul, Turkey, and the driver has pulled over immediately. He managed to pull out the flames and fire fighters arrived at the scene later.

The exact reason for why this exotic vehicle has caught fire is not known at this point but the good thing about it is that the owner has managed to put out the flames before they were going to destroy his ride. No one was injured in this incident. The Prancing Horse didn’t make any official statements on what could have led to it and chances are it never will.

Ferrari has pulled the wraps off the F12 Berlinetta back in 2012, at the Geneva Motor Show. This came as a replacement for the 599 GTB and it is offered in a 2-door coupe body style, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The F12 is 4,618 mm long, 1,942 mm wide and 1,273 mm tall, with a dry weight of 1,525 kg.

Under its hood we can find a 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, rated at 730 HP (544 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. Power is sent to the rear-wheel drive through a 7-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph).
