Ferrari F40 catches Fire in Japan
A Ferrari F40 was destroyed in Japan after it caught fire. Fortunately, the occupants of the supercar were able to get out in time.
The following video shows firemen trying to douse the fire. Although, it seems the car was completely gutted by the time the fire crew arrived on the scene.
Details on what caused the fire are not known. However, looking at the images, it seems like the fire may have started in the engine bay. As you can see, the blaze completely consumed the carbon fibre bodywork.
This is not the first fire incident involving a Ferrari F40. Last year, a similar car had caught fire in Monaco. Despite the damage, it was later reported that it was being restored. So, perhaps the owner of the Japanese F40 might also decide to re-build his car.
The F40 is powered by a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 471 hp and 426 lb-ft of torque. The engine is bolted to a 5-speed manual transmission. Only 1,300 cars were built and today, a good one fetches around $1.5-2 million.
