Ferraris ‘A Fire


“Ferraris are hot, but they’re not supposed to be this hot”

Thought this seriously bummed out and stereotypical Italian when he fresh 458 caught fire in Paris.

Luckily his tight pants and Gucci shoes appear to have escaped the blaze intact… and I hope that’s the receipt from the Ferrari dealer he’s got in his hand. has reported at least ten 458’s catching fire in the last few months.  And oddly, it seems that the source of some of these fires remains a mystery.

Jeremy Clarkson seemed to like this car well enough on TopGear, calling it the prettiest Ferrari since the 308.  I’m partial to the Maranello myself, but this car sure does photograph well.  When it’s not on fire.

When Ferrari looked back on its blueprints, they realized the problem right away…

They obviously forgot to attach that little cheese grater on the lower right to anything.  Problem solved, check please.

In any case I hope they get these cars sorted out before I take delivery on mine next week.  I don’t want to get stuck driving my mum’s minivan to work again while my Ferrari is in the shop.
