    This is the end.
    F12 prices will increase dramatically.

    A salesperson of the official dealer Kessel Auto SA of Lugano was on a test drive with a client.

    Maybe a mod and a leak, always sad to see such craftsmanship ruined. At least no one died.

    That's a pretty hot fire. All the plastic is gone including the battery as well as the aluminum intake plenums. Even the rims melted. For the record I didn't get the price increase thing but I guess it was sarcasm or I might just be stupid.

    What stupid ? nobody understood the price increase nor your "Bay area" reference. Be clear, says something everybody can easily understand.

    Sad to see how a nice piece of automobile art can burn to the ground so quickly. I hope the owner had an insurance policy that covers the value of the car.

    he's clearly being sarcastic probably because of all the threads asking when the naturally aspirated V12 will increase in value when they go hybrid.

    i'll make a gentleman's bet that the F12 will age better than the 812 but i could be biased as an F12 owner :p

    I think Marcel meant, 1 less F12 will make the prices go up in a joking way :)
    Anyone know if there was a fuel smell or electrical smell before the fire?

    I wonder if it was stationary revved over and over prior to catching on fire. Doing that is just not ideal, especially for cars like this that get so hot and rely heavily on airflow to cool things down. Yet a lot of people think everything will be fine by revving at a stand still for prolonged period of time.
