Catching fire spontaneously for no obvious reason is one of the main characteristics of any proper super car. Or rather it used to be in the good old days. These days super cars are as safe as hatchbacks, both to drive and to live with. Ferrari though has proved many many times in recent years they are still fully-fledged super cars by catching fire all on their own! The most recent example is a 599 that burned to the ground recently in Dubai while sitting at a traffic light.
