Now this is as heartbreaking a story as you’ll ever come across. Not that we cried or anything, but we feel for the owner of this 2008 Ferrari F430 Novitech for the ordeal he had to go through. On the flip side, this is also a reminder to all of us that car insurance, while maddeningly expensive, can still be the best thing that ever happened to your car.
In any case, here are the details. That car, as we’ve mentioned, is – or was – a 2008 Ferrari F430 Novitech that caught fire on the German Autobahn recently while going at 80 mph around 5 in the morning after the owner’s eventful night of club-hopping. As soon as the fire began, the owner quickly pulled over at the side of the highway, got out of the car and made a quick getaway, avoiding any injuries in the process.
Unfortunately, his Ferrari wasn’t as lucky. As soon as the fire was stopped, the F430 Novitech was reduced to a twisted heap of hot metal. What’s worse, the car didn’t have any insurance on it, driving the owner, according to people who witnessed the fiery spectacle, to tears after seeing his precious supercar get engulfed in flames.
