A Ferrari F40 has been utterly wrecked after catching fire on a road in Japan.

The 80s supercar was driving around Japan's famous Hakone Turnpike on Sunday before the driver inside noticed smoke coming from the engine behind them. They proceeded to pull over, at which point the car set alight.

This footage from Twitter shows the fire brigade putting out the fire, and as you can see, the car is completely destroyed. All that is left is charred carbon fibre and steel on the road surface.

It is very supsetting to see something like this happen and thankfully both the driver and passenger espaced unharmed. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it could be a fuel line issue which has affected Ferrari F40s in the past.
