They felt the heat! We’re talking about the owners of the Ferrari F40 which burst into flames on February 18th in the streets of Monaco. They were inside the vehicle, driving, when the fire broke out. They managed to get out before they were injured. What was also hot, as a result, was the heavy traffic that the incident caused just a stone’s throw from the Grimaldi Forum. Public Security officers took up the challenge to relieve the private drivers and drivers who were working at the time of the incident.
Not an uncommon event
Car fires are not as rare as one might think, it’s a common incident for firefighters. What is rare, if not impossible, is that it also causes the engine to explode. This is only seen in the movies.
What is also rare is the model that burned. The Ferrari F40 was produced in only 1315 units between 1987 and 1992. Its value is estimated at more than a million euros. While recovering for the shock, the owner couple could now call upon the services of a private driver company.
Entrusting their journeys to a private driver
In this case, it is quite understandable that you don’t want to get back behind the wheel yourself. The advantage of our chauffeur-driven car service is that our cars are brand new and maintained like new all year round. Safety is paramount to us, the engine, as well as the interior and bodywork of our luxury vehicles are checked to reduce the risk of technical incidents such as the one that occurred on this Ferrari to a minimum.
