Just imagine you, all handsome, in your retirement. I bet you're feeling quite proud of yourself. Worked your way up, with nothing but your bootstraps. Had a career. Family. A retirement home in Boca. Now, a Ferrari. Red. Yeah, that will look good. Until it goes up in flames.

How many times are we going to go through this? Ferrari F430s, like their successor, the 458 Italia, have a tendency to go up in smoke. It always seems to start in the engine bay, and this Ferrari in Boca Raton, Florida, was no different.

Look, Ferrari F430 owners. If you want to stay safe, maybe it's best to just get a Toyota? Or at least make sure to get the optional extinguisher.


H/t to Nick!
