Exclamation Ferrari FF Supercar catches fire!

Source: ICB

A Ferrari FF caught fire near Frankfurt on a German autobahn. There have been instances in the past when supercars have instantly combusted leaving just a smouldering heap of metal behind. Lamborghinis have been reported to catch fire chiefly due to overheating. Unlike a Lamborghini, the Ferrari has its engine bolted in the front which should theoretically aid cooling. But, at the end of the day it is a machine and a machine will fail some day or the other. The car that is seen burning in the video was a test car which a 44 year old had taken out for a test drive. According to reports a sudden bang was heard after which smoke started pouring from the rear before the the whole car burst in to flames. Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident but for Ferrari, it was its last outing on the autobahn.

Initial speculation suggests that the FF was driving at slow speeds in traffic for an extended period of time causing materials to overheat and catch fire.

I recall an incident that occurred at one of our airport (Chennai or Mumbai ? ) ... a lambo went up in flames when it was left idling for a prolonged period in an attempt to rid it of its fuel before being transported. I assume that unlike cars purpose built for racing on tracks, road going super cars are designed to handle every day conditions like traffic and prolonged idling...or are they not ?

IIRC, this lambo incident was in Chennai.
