Fire-proof Ferrari??

Given the recent spate of 458 and now FF car fires - I am curious - is there a Ferrari that is not prone to spontaneous combustion?

Is there a "Fire proof Ferrari"? Please discuss some of the more flammable models as well. I'm sure this thread could reach record lengths.

Dear Sandy,

As long as we continue to use gasoline and electrical ignition there will always be a fire potential. It is not limited to Ferraris. Please see attached.

Best regards,

F355's and early 360s have quite the fire history as well. On the F355s fuel lines were known to get chafed or come loose resulting in a shower of fuel across the engine bay.
