Another Ferrari 458 Italia catches fire, company to investigate

Ferrari 458 Italia catches fire in China

Last week, the folks over at WreckedExotics.com told us that they have recorded nine Ferrari 458 Italia crashes in the past 90 days – well, they can now add on their 10th. The 10th destroyed Ferrari 458 Italia comes from China and was apparently involved in a warehouse fire, but it is unclear whether the car started the blaze in the first place.

Of course some crashes have been caused by driver error, but a handful have mysteriously caught on fire.

While there is no proof that there is any technical fault with the 458 Italias, Ferrari has confirmed it is investigating the mysterious fires. Stay tuned for more details – in the meantime check out a video of the latest burning 458 Italia after the jump.
