N/A
the culprit is the flammable glue used to hold the car’s inner protection of the fenders in place which sits very close to the exhaust. As a result, whenever the 458 Italia is driven for too long or too hard or both, the glue would ignite, causing the flames and turning the precious thing into ashes.
The wrong flammable adhesive is used in cars before July 2010, which means a total of 1, 248 Ferrari’s have been recalled from across many parts of the world. The technicians will now be replacing the adhesive with metal fasteners, which will take about half a day to get fixed.
