    Hard to watch.

    But I’m willing to bet if you can afford to own a car like that to begin I doubt the loss is going to break the bank.

    I posted a bunch of pictures Sunday in the Random pic thread. This was about an hour south of me. Here's what the gas pump looked like.

    McLarens now come with optional marshmellos in the glovebox.

    My guesses:

    1) British cars, not known for having good wiring.

    2) Woman driver, thought the exhaust pipes was the gas filler.

    3) None of the above, it's TRUMP'S FAULT!!

    It's an English car, they aren't the most reliable things. My father's 4,000 mile 12c is riddled with problems.

    Well assume if you can afford the car you can afford to properly insure it. No biggy new car for the owner

    Saw this one in the Pics forum, but this video has all the details. Looking at the charred gas pump, it's amazing there wasn't an explosion. Maybe newer pumps have fire safe-guards? I know of a gas station not far from me that experienced a similar car fire maybe 20-25 years ago. One or more fuel pumps exploded pretty much destroying the station.

    This car was sold new from my work. Traded in after ~150 miles to dealership in Florida and this was the second owner. Story we got was guy was out driving the car, pulled into gas station with car piping hot and left running while he got gas. These cars throw off some serious heat even just idling for a bit.

    Too bad, car was absolutely beautiful and highly specced
