See how you don’t put out a vintage Ferrari F40

Monaco’s peaceful flaning ended with heavy losses for the owner of the rare Ferrari flagship, both for the wallet and for the nerves. In one of the videos, in many published by eyewitnesses on social networks, it is seen how the unfortunate (former) owner of a supercar in despair wanders around the conflagration, raising their hands to the sky.

By this time, the car was still not completely engulfed in flames, but as far as one can judge from the reviews of eyewitnesses, the car still burned to the ground. The causes of the fire are still unknown. Apparently, the supercar burned out almost instantly: even the participation of the resident of the house near which Ferrari was flaming did not help: in the video posted above, it is clearly visible how he tries to water the supercar with the help of something like a garden hose. And by the time the fire services arrived, the rarity turned into miserable remains. Both the engine compartment (from where the ignition seems to have started) and the interior were completely burned out.

Ferrari F40 was considered the flagship model of the brand from 1987 to 1992 – this is the last model created during the lifetime of the founder Enzo Ferrari. The mid-engined coupe was equipped with a 2.9-liter V8 with a return of 478 hp. and 577 Nm of torque. A total of 1,315 such cars were produced, and now the prices for the Ferrari F40 are steadily exceeding a million dollars.
