Ferrari California burns in Warsaw [video]

A Ferrari California was destroyed by fire in Warsaw, Poland.

Yet another Ferrari has burned down, this time the beautiful California. It happened a few days ago in Warsaw, Poland near the Museum of Modern Art. There aren't a lot of details to share at the moment but it seems that the fire started from near the car's front, probably in the engine compartment. Unfortunately for the owner of the vehicle, the California was already a total loss by the time the firefighters arrived.

You probably know the long history of burning Ferraris but usually these had to do with the 458 Italia and other older models as we don't remember a similar incident with the California. Back in February in China, an FF went up in smoke in Shanghai. Let's just hope that the successor of the Enzo won't have these problems.

Thanks to Michal for the tip!

IT WAS AN ARSON. According to the article someone spilled gasoline on the hood and the other person ignited a fire. There are two suspects police are looking for. The car was uninsured.

Ferrari makes some amazing cars, but this shows that they are pushing the performance envelope a little too far at the expense of durability in certain conditions. Still, at the end of the day, I doubt that unless someone is seriously injured or worse, Ferrari will be taking too drastic action to fix this: they don't make that many cars, their margins per car are huge and they have such huge waiting lists that even if a few people drop off, it will have at worst a negligible impact on how many cars they sell as year. The mystique of Ferrari allows it to get away with something that would see virtually any other car maker take a huge hit on the financials.

This is eventually going to start burning their order books. Someone should get fired overe these constant problems. You can't just try to blaze through the quality checking process like that. There is no need to get fired up, though, because they still seem to be the toast of the town.

Also this month a 430 caught fire in UAE as well. I started to not respect Ferrari after those accidents. If some one wants a sport car they can go for the SLS, R8 V10 or 911 turbo instead
