The owner of Ferrari 458 Italia has become the 11th victim of the new supercar’s mysterious jinx after it burned down in China.  The trouble started in the engine compartment.

This dramatic video shows plumes of black smoke emanating from the £170,000 supercar as it sits on the side of a winding hill road. It’s been a tumultuous start for the Ferrari 458 Italia which has been lauded by critics but suffered at the hands of its owners with six reported crashes and five fire-related incidents – a total of 11 in just three months and five in the past 11 days. 

According to recent reports, Ferrari will start looking into these fires. Ferrari officials have stated that at least six of the events were caused by driver error, and not by some technical malfunction.
