At least it was an 06 or newer and "should" be in warranty...:)

Most likely it's a V8

the burnt part of the hood is right above the coolant tank...

What do you think was the cause?

Yeah I'd be curious as to what the cause was? Any chance the owner was under the hood "modifying" something??? But none the less, hope they were insured... ouch!

<insert Northstar joke here>

$20 says it's something aftermarket related. My apologies to your coworker Vision.

notice all the fire extinguisher dust BEFORE the firetruck arrived .....someone attepted to save it

its easy for a fireman to shove the hood back like that , they do it all the time .....these are the same guys that take an ax to your front door and put the firehouse thru the windows of your car if you park next to a hydrant ...they see fire and all bets are off ....ive even seen them destory firetrucks just leaving the station en route to a call ....remeber kids , wait till the WHOLE truck is out of the station BEFORE turning left ....

I know the culprit: The owner was so distraught by the differential leaking for the baszillionth time that he/she "accidentally" spilled gasoline on the engine compartment and then lit it on fire... the explosion blasted the hood into the windshield. Poor bastard.

There was an auction several years back where the residue from a burned up Ferrari that reresented 40% of the original car but included the data plate sold for around $7.5 million dollars.

That would ruin my whole day.
This happend to be a car that was owned by a company that does the "pay a thousand dollars to drive several sports cars for the day event". Apparently there was a Lambo, Ford GT, Z06, Aston, this Ferrari etc. on the event. First time the F430 was put into use...brand spanking new. Apparently a blown oil line sprayed oil into the engine compartment which then ignited the engine compartment, which then ignited the carbon fiber body of the Ferrari.

I'd rather be the owner of the car than the insurance company :) A first permium loss is a little tough to swallow.
