KUALA LUMPUR: A Ferrari was completely destroyed when it suddenly caught fire during peak hour traffic at Jalan Travers on Wednesday the 4th of February, the New Straits Times reported.
In the 6pm incident, the driver of the red Ferrari F430 and a female companion escaped unhurt after they managed to escape the burning car.
The Fire and Rescue Department reported that following a distress call at 6pm, a team of five firemen from Pantai station rushed to the scene but by then the back end of the car was completely burnt.
“When we arrived, it was too late. The department’s forensic team was also notified, to help identify the cause of the fire,” he said.
The fire had caused a 2km bumper to bumper crawl from Jalan Bangsar towards Jalan Mahameru.
As is usually the case with vehicular fires, the Ferrari was reduced to a pile of smouldering metal and ash with only the section of the body ahead of the windshield seemingly intact.
