Ferrari FF Burns to The Ground, is It Just the First? [Video]

A rite of passage of sorts for new Ferrari models, reports have surfaced of a brand new $300,000 Ferrari FF spontaneously catching fire and burning to the ground. The driver of the FF reportedly heard a bang coming from the rear following a rise of flames during his test-drive in Frankfurt, Germany. Pulling to the side of the road and escaping from the car, the driver of the FF sustained no injuries.

Last year news emerged of several Ferrari 458 Italias catching fire. Then, the cause was discovered to be an issue regarding the engine heat shields around the Italia’s V8. As the FF’s V12 engine is up in the front, one could assume that heat reflectors surrounding the FF’s exhaust may be the cause this time around. No recalls or investigations have been announced.

Check out the video of the fire below.

Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturer's Act Introduced to Help Small Automakers

Congressman John Campbell has proposed the “Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturer’s Act,” an act that introduces a new regulatory system designed to work specifically for companies that produce no more than 1,000 vehicles a year. Without the resources of larger manufacturers, it is more difficult for specialized carmakers to provide vehicles for safety and emission evaluations before the cars are brought to market. With this bill, it will be possible for low-volume vehicles that are sourced engines already EPA certified to be excluded from additional costly emissions certification.
