Red Hot Ferraris….

We always knew Ferraris were hot, just not this hot. The maker’s latest supercar, the 458 Italia, has been recalled worldwide (1258 all told) after five caught fire. The problem was traced to the type of adhesive used in the car’s wheel-arch assemblies. The supplier of the original adhesive changed the chemical compound used – without testing it – and five unfortunate Ferrari owners quickly discovered it was “sensitive to heat”.

All five melted cars were completely replaced with new ones. Only 8 cars were recalled in Australia and the fix took only a few hours. All are back on the road so the owners can enjoy their 4.5-litre V8’s performance (0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds).
