Have you been missing out the spontaneous combustion effect of exotic rides? Well, if so, we have to tell you that the newest expensive ride to burn to the ground is coming all the way from Hong Kong. The model in question has spontaneously combusted a few days back and in managed to attract quite a crowd. Some of the witnesses have been filming it so we can see how an expensive torch looks like. This isn’t the first time when a vehicle produced in Maranello burns to the ground and Ferrari has nothing to say about these incidents.
Ferrari has been producing the F430 between 2004 an 2009 and it was replaced eventually by the 458. The model has been designed by Frank Stephenson at Pininfarina and it was introduced at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. The two-door model was offered in a 2-seat coupe / 2-seat roadster body styles and with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power was being provided by a 4.3 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, which was capable of producing a total output of 491 HP (366 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,250 rpm. The unit was connected to a 6-speed manual / 6-speed electrohydraulic manual transmission and it provided the car with a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of 4.0 secodns and a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph).
