There are several things you can expect when you purchase a used supercar. Things like great handling, superior engine performance, and stylish appearance are all on that list. There is an equally long list of things you would never expect. One of the biggest things you would not expect is a Ferrari-b-q.

Well, when you have the automotive luck of Valencia CF soccer player, Ever Banega, whose last mishap involved forgetting to set the parking brake on his Audi R8, which resulted in it rolling backwards and breaking his ankle, you should really expect the unexpected. Well, that’s exactly what happened, as Banega’s newly purchased Ferrari 360 Modena decided to spontaneously combust on his way to practice.

Well, maybe not spontaneously, as it was determined that electrical failure caused the blaze, but it is still something that is truly unexpected. By the time fire fighters subdued the flames, the 360 Modena was little more than a pile of melted plastic and metal.

Fortunately, Banega got away from the flaming car without injury and someone managed to get us some footage of this Ferrari turned kindling, as Banega and his teammate frantically look for water to douse the flames.

Check out the video and cringe as this fine automobile meets its flaming grave. Maybe Banega should consider mass transit from here on out...

With that accident, I’d better estimated it, if I had to buy the 360 or not.

What’s the real status of the Modena after it catches fire?

Could it be the materials used on its interior is highly-flammable and can easily catch up fire?

What seems to be the major problem of this Ferrari? Is it that easily to catch a fire? Do they have safety measures for fire accident like this?

OMG! Why is the 360 Modena burst into flames that easily? Where did the fire start from the electrical failure?
