A Ferrari F430 supercar has recently burst into flames for no obvious reason in a Florida parking lot.
Usually when writing about supercars and fires we are used to seeing a pile of metal and blame the driver and his lack of experience, but sometimes we get a paranormal activity like the one presented here when this expensive ride has become possessed and developed a mind of its own. This mind told it that it’s quite cold outside and rather than turning the heater on, it should start a massive fire.
Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens are well known for spontaneously combust but it seems that carmakers aren’t doing anything to stop this phenomenon. Hopefully the owner of this car will get his money back from insurance. The unfortunate incident took place in Boca Raton, Florida. No one was injured but the supercar was completely destroyed.
The Ferrari F430 is the successor of the 360 and it has been replaced by the 458 Italia. The model was officially unveiled during the 2004 Paris Motor Show and it came in two body styles, Berlinetta and Spider. The F430 has a mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout and it’s powered by a 4.3 liter V8, producing 483 HP and 465 Nm of torque (343 lb-ft).
