It seems that Ferrari learned nothing from the previousfire problems the 458 Italia had in the past. The new FF is being reported to have the same issues: a number of three cars recently caught fire, with the latest one being located in Poland (previous two were in Germany in November 2011 and China in February 2012).
The incident took place on the A4 highway near Krakow, Sunday at 19:23. It seems that the fire started spontaneously and according to the driver it went from the cockpit down to the pedals. Luckily he managed to get out of the car in time, but despite his efforts and the help from two fire brigade, the car was completely destroyed.
Ferrari has already recalled a number of FF models from the Chinese market built before December 2011. The problem announced for those models was excessive oil lubrication circuit-processing residues. However, we are pretty sure that a massive FF recall will happen pretty soon.
