Not Again: Ferrari F430 Burns On Houston Highway

Follow Viknesh

Hopefully the last in what may eventuate as one of the worst weeks in history for Ferrari owners, this black Ferrari F430, possibly a hardcore Scuderia model, suddenly caught fire while it was being driven down a stretch of road in Houston, Texas, earlier this week.

A passerby managed to capture this video footage of the black Ferrari, confirming that the flames are likely to have emanated from the engine bay.

According to Jalopnik, the driver managed to escape without injury though the car is almost certainly to be a complete write-off.

As mentioned, this latest wrecked Ferrari caps off a very bad week for Ferrari owners all around the globe.

On Monday we reported on a crash that took place in Japan and involved no less than eight Ferraris, most of which are likely to be written off. And then on Tuesday we reported on a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano that burned to the ground on a road in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

If that was not enough, on Wednesday we reported about a Ferrari 458 Italia that crashed in the UK after its driver likely lost control on an icy road.

You can view a complete list of reports on exotics that have have caught on fire or crashed recently, including more 458 Italias and even a new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, by clicking here.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Notice the morons filming it? "He was probably a smoker and threw the cigarette out the window and it got in the engine. When is it gonna blow up like on TV?" Holy crap... Cars don't explode when on fire, usually anyway. I like how they also couldn't figure out where the engine was...
