Wreckage of Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano that burned to the ground in DubaiEnlarge Photo
The driver of the car was reportedly cruising down the road when smoke started to emerge from underneath the bonnet. The car then quickly caught alight but not before the driver and his passenger managed to escape without any injuries.
Fire crews responding to the inferno eventually managed to put out the flames, but as the video footage reveals the car was a goner before they even reached the scene. Sadly, there’s little that will be salvageable from this wreck, which GT Spirit reports is a write-off.
Tragically, the news comes just one day after we reported about an eight Ferrari pile-up that occurred in Japan this past weekend.
Earlier today Ferrari also announced the last variant of its 599 GTB Fiorano, the special edition 60F1, which celebrates not only 60 years of Formula 1 wins for Scuderia Ferrari, but also the accomplishments of the team’s star driver Fernando Alonso. A replacement for the 599 is scheduled to make its world debut next March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. You can read up on it and view spy shots by clicking here.
