Ferrari F12 TDF Burns To a Crisp on Autobahn, Only 798 Left

You don't even have to belong to the car aficionado camp to be aware of the fact that Ferraris, as well as other supercars, constantly like to remind their owners about the devastating effects of spontaneous combustion. If, however, you do happen to be a gearhead, you'll be affected by the most recent example of the sort, since we're talking about an F12 Tour De France.

You see, Maranello is only building 799 units of the V12 special and it's obvious that the one you can see in the images above is now parked in motoring heaven. The only positive side of this tale, if we may call it so, is that we haven't received any reports of injuries related to this fire.

The unfortunate incident took place yesterday on the German Autobahn, with the fire causing quite a stir. According to local news reports (via zero2turbo), the F12 TDF was on the move when its occupants noticed smoke coming out of the vehicle.

The driver reportedly pulled over on the spot, briefly requesting help from the authorities. Alas, the Prancing Horse had already been consumed by the flames when the emergency responders arrived. Zooming in on the pics reveals that the number of parts that might be saved can probably be counted using the fingers of one hand.

Keep in mind that the F12 Tour De France is currently an Instagram sensation, with the final examples of the supercar-ized Grand Tourer now being delivered to their owners.

For instance, the most recent episode of the kind saw Cristiano Ronaldo welcoming such a Fezza to his garage. It's worth noting that the football star went for an uber-classy spec.

Speaking of Ferrari F12 Tour De France colors and materials, we recently showed you one of the most intense combos to date. Coming from Instagrammer gregb.23, who is known for his exotic machines, the said spec still hasn't been fully revealed, but it seems we're dealing with a chameleon matte green main hue.
