Ferrari on Fire

Russian ferrari got burned down

How reliable Ferrari cars are?

Let’s ask this unnamed owner of Ferrari from Moscow Russia:

“I owned Ferrari for 30 minutes. Just bought it for 600,000 EUR and was heading home, when I noticed some smoke coming out from under the hood, I promptly pulled to the sideway and ran out of the car. Just in minutes all my new Ferrari was caught on fire. I really don’t know what has happened.”

We hope her Ferrari has just had some uncommon flaw and the luxury cars of this well known brand are safe and reliable.

The firemen that came to help, just couldn’t do anything, though they got nice photos and video footage for us now.

    Everything costs more in Russia because of insanely high import tariffs on pretty much everything that comes into the country.

    No pics of the owner?

  5. I once saw a Lambo Diablo in just thus condition. I was in Cincinnatti at Skip Jone’s racing shop. It had been towed there, because the insurance co. wanted to do a very thorough investigation. It was owned by a Cinci Bengals football player – forgot who. He was racing it on the Interstate at about 140 when it caught fire. A TV news chopper caught it on film. Only took 10 minutes to destroy it completely. Skip told me that a fuel line came loose and splashed fuel on the super hot manifold. These cars are built for perfectly smooth asphalt. The combination of the high fuel pressure and vibration and imperfect driving surfaces causes this to happen frequently. Barbecued horsey for dinner!

  6. This shows that the owner is lazy. The main difference between performance cars (like Ferrari) and normal cars, is the temperature of engine during driving. The temperature of engine of performance cars is much higher, even higher when driving at RPM (racing). Normally it is no problem, it only becomes problem when you do not take care of the cooling system (like not enough water, or anything else that cools the engine).
    And I don’t think that it is a brand new one.

  7. Ok, I saw a guy with “DPS” on his uniform. What does that stand for? Are they so silly as to use russian acronyms for american words?

  8. Ferraris and city driving don’t mix well. Probably the clutch overheated, catching fire. That’s an expensive bonfire indeed..

    @Steven: DPS stands for Дорожно-патрульная служба, road patrol service, or traffic police.

  9. DPS = Dorozhno Patrulnaya Sluzhba, Russian traffic police.

    Btw, I read that in most supercars you are not allowed to brake with full power during the first 500km, otherwise brakes might overheat and light on fire.

  10. There is a small fix that must be performed on Ferrari’s fuel system. Most American Ferrari owners have this update correction performed before buying a Ferrari. American Ferrari dealerships have been advising Ferrari of this for many years, but the stubborn Italian car maker refuses to believe there is anything wrong with their fuel system.
