Story goes that the driver noticed fire in one of the rear wheel wells when it started to spread. Lucky for the owner, a passerby happened to have a large fire-extinguisher on hand and both were able to quickly put out the flame.
The cause of the fire remains unknown.
Refresher: Power for the Ferrari 458 Italia comes from a mid-rear mounted 4.5L V8 producing 570-hp at 9,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. Mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox, 0 to 62 mph comes in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of over 202 mph.
