    Default ferrari on fire

    i've always preached the importance of having a extinguisher in the car.

    More likely he did not fully release the hand brake so friction build up when he keep driving it.

    There has been well documented precedents of Ferraris burning up on the road, mostly traced back to falulty / leaky fuel lines.

    adding water on an oil fire will only make the fire bigger.

    not only to have a fire extinguisher but the right fire extinguisher (ABC)

    the fire was quite serious, saw huge plume of smoke as I was driving from Bras Basah to North Bridge Road. Could see the car burning from the junction at Capitol.

    After lunch, pass by again, saw the towtruck getting ready to tow it away. Gosh, the back of the car looked like it melted

    Yikes, the front still looks ok.

    Maybe the kid didn't ask for permission, before taking it out...

    guys,

    please.

    dont have to say 'sour-grapes'-related comments.

    even if fact is his/her dad is rich, it's just he's blessed to come from a rich family.
    anything wrong with that?
    no.

    there's potential for any car to catch fire.
    the fact that this topic is a big news is because it's a prancing horse.
    if it's a KIA or cherry, i reckon it will just be another small column news at best.

    so please, before you make your post, ask yourself if your comment is biased towards rich people/people who can afford a prancing horse.

    and please, dont stereotype/discriminate against female drivers, especially in the case IF the female driver drives a better car then you do.
