Maybe the Ferrari isn't as good a car as it's cracked up to be.

The Ferrari was probably a victim of really bad driving. The VW however was a victim of bad luck. What caused that fire to ignite just ahead of the firewall? Bad wiring? Bad modding? Overheating?

unless the car had no tires on it, it sounds like you didnt watch the video.

A few years back at Goodwood someone did that with a Formula One car. A Jordan IIRC. Got it moving, got a little grip, floored it and it snapped around 90 degrees right into the barrier. D'OH!

Bad modding. The owner of the car posted the video on vwvortex and the members chewed him out for putting the turbo so freaking close to the firewall. Oh well, a harsh learning experience for any future plans he may have.

That's unbelievably idiotic driving. Did he even bother to hold on to the steering wheel?

Seems stupid to be doing the quarter mile in a Ferrari. That's much more of a road track car.
