Jaguar will send an expert to investigate the case

A Jaguar F-Type caught fire and burned almost completely in Herentals, Belgium.

Only eight F-Type models have been delivered up until now in Belgium, but only seven of them are on the road since one of the cars burned on the E313. The driver spotted "a defect in the vehicle" and decided to pull off the highway. When he got out of the car the F-Type ignited and burned almost entirely before the fire department arrived.

Jaguar representative Isabelle Michiels said "something like this has never happened. We are puzzled." She added the company will send an expert from UK to investigate what went wrong. The only good news is nobody was hurt after the F-Type turned into a fireball.

This is horrible, for now no one is hurt,but that can easily kill someone; manufacturers should take more serious the tests they perform to their vehicles.

It looks like it must have been an intense fire, I hope this doesn't lead to any problems for Jaguar.
