Looks like another Ferrari 458 Italia has met a fiery end, this time on the Swiss A5 motorway.

The news website 20 Minutes Online reports that the fire occurred about 5 p.m. local time Saturday between Neuchâtel and Yverdon. Witnesses saw a 458 Italia engulfed in flames in the emergency lane of the highway.

The Italia reportedly burst into flames just before a tunnel due to "a technical problem." Thankfully, no one was injured.

As we've reported before, the 458 seems to be one of the more fire-prone supercars around. If you happen to own one, a Nomex suit may be a good investment just in case.
