Amid the attention on Ferraris this week, one burst into flames at a petrol kiosk on Thursday night.
The car was slightly burnt and had to be towed away, while the pump station was damaged and had to be shut down for three hours.
The driver of the Ferrari, described as plump and in his 30s, escaped unscathed as he managed to put out the small flames on his pants quickly with a nearby fire extinguisher.
Speaking to The Straits Times at the Singapore Petroleum Company kiosk in Havelock Road, pump attendant Prakash, who goes by only one name, said he usually lays a towel under the petrol tank before filling it up to prevent any leakage.
Maybe the Ferrari should use SHELL V Power Petrol instead! :P
