A Ferrari F40 ignites all alone in Japan!

In Japan, a Ferrari F40 caught fire last week while driving quietly on the open road …

Last year already, it was also a F40 going up in smoke, this time in Monaco.

The supercar went up in flames on its own

The couple who drove on board would have first noticed smoke escaping from the engine compartment. Shortly thereafter, the two occupants reportedly stopped before switching off the ignition to allow the engine to cool.

But obviously, the car would still have caught fire and the fire would have become too important to be controlled. On videos filmed by local media, we can see the firefighters on site, but the latter obviously arrived too late, the car having already been completely devastated by the flames …

On the pictures, we can see the car completely charred. All that’s left is a heap of melted scrap metal and carbon fiber. Fortunately, none of the passengers were injured in the fire!


One less copy …

There is therefore one F40 less on the 1.315 units produced by the brand between 1987 and 1992.

It goes without saying that the Ferrari F40 is not a Ferrari like the others: it is quite simply the latest creation ofEnzo Ferrari, who died a year after leaving the car.

With a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V8, the car develops nearly 478 horsepower and 577 Nm of torque! The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, which sends all the power to the rear wheels.

It is therefore a very precious model in the history of the automobile which has just gone up in smoke …
