What is it with mid-engined supercars and fires? Earlier today we brought you the video of the Ferrari F430 flambé and it was only a few months ago that an R8 test mule virtually burnt to the ground at the Nurburgring.

This time, its another test mule...apparently. As with most automotive fires the cause was fuel. Are the Italian and German supercar assemblers getting weak wrists? Are the makers of some of the world's greatest supercars struggling with something as simple as a high pressure hose clamp?

Thankfully, the folks at eGMCarTech have confirmed that no-one was hurt.
