A brand new Ferrari FF has recently burned down in Hong Kong for no obvious reason, raising a suspicion on the company’s first ever production all-wheel drive supercar.
Owning a supercar is not that easy because you will have a huge service bill every few months, an expensive insurance and probably a constant problem with it. Adding the fact that you may find it in flames will probably make you rethink your “strategy” but this problem hasn’t been sold yet and Ferraris (and not only) keep burning down all over the world, for no obvious reason.
The most recent example in which a Ferrari has spontaneously combust is coming from Hong Kong and the victim in this case is the FF. Happily no one was injured in the incident and firefighters, who arrived quickly at the scene, have managed to extinguish the fire before it completely destroyed the supercar. An investigation is pending but it seems that the fire has started from the front end of the FF.
The Ferrari FF has been in production since 2011 and it’s offered in a 3-door shooting brake body style, with a front mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. Power is coming from a 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, rated at 651 HP (485 kW) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch semi automatic transmission.
