    It’s a Ferrari, so catching fire is just part of the ownership experience. The Italians may know art, beauty and fashion but building a reliable automobile is sadly beyond their capabilities. Ferraris are known for catching fire due to engineering defects.

      Actually, that particular model has a known flaw, and it has been fixed some time ago. Maybe this Ferrari was a stole one, so they dindnt fix the problem at the official dealer.
      Also, no way that Chevy is a luxury model, it costs less than a Ford Focus.

      This is a F430 which is known to be quite reliable. The Ferraris that used to lighten up were the early F458 Italia because the heat of the brakes would ignite the wheels and the coverings in the wheel arches. But that was quite easly fixed. To me this looks more arson. Happens quite often if you park such a supercar over night in a public space. That´s why you should have a garage for such a car. But maybe being a murican (“Jim-Bob”) you have no clue about cars as you car government bailed out car industry shows. Ferrari is still a top car maker and almost everybody on the planet who is a real petrolhead would like to own one.

    Sadly, this model Ferrari is notorious for catching fire. There is a design fault which Ferrari is responsible for. Let’s hope the owner of this charred supercar gets either a refund or a replacement.

      A car catching fire while standing still, turned off, in the middle of a Russian winter…the likeliness of that is next to zero. That whole thing is nearly frozen solid, the only real option is arson.

    Look at the tires :D Winter tires? – not even summer tires :D This looks like insurance fraud.

    If he was insured then he is okay. If not he will not be happy.

  5. Fred Johnson says:

    The tires look to be in pretty good shape. Odd.

  6. boa says:

    Ditto, jim-bob summed it up accurately.

    A “luxury” Chevrolet?

  8. Maks says:

    Chevrolet is not a luxury car!

  9. Chico says:

    It’s the old model, and the tires look pretty worn. So not that bad.

    Google “Fiat FIRE engine”. Capisce?

      FIRE Engine : “Fully Integrated Robotised Engine”
      See wikipedia….

      • CZenda says:

        Of course. I was responding on Jim-Bob´s rant about Italian engineering. These engines are brilliant – economical and virtually maintenance free. I love them.

        • Tiger says:

          If somebody is named “Bob”, “Jim” or “Jim-Bob” that is an indicator that he has no idea about cars and that his own ride is a 20 year old supercharged 20 litre V8 with leaf-spring suspension or a harvester :)

    For me it’s a case of class struggle. There’s a city legend in Moscow about a sick man called “Pyra” who burns expensive cars in the night to restore “staggered” justice. There are obviously more than just one Pyra, but till now none of them are catched somehow.
