Some people like to refer to their car as a hot ride, even if it is so mildly. But this guy in the video does really have a very hot car, well, quite literally. The owner of a BMW was taken by surprise when the underbelly of his car started bellowing bright yellow flames. The video was taken by a man on a motorcycle, who warns the driver of the M5 and later had to chase it a bit.

Not sure, what exactly happened but by the looks of it, the driver perhaps thought the motorcyclist was complimenting his cool car, and he speeds away only to stop and find out his car really was on fire!

The motorcycle speeds up and catches the M5 around the next corner, only to find that the inferno had grown bigger.

The damage on the M5 is perhaps repairable. Even if it is not, there is still a way to put the carcass to use, like the owner of a Lamborghini Murcielago did. As the picture below suggests, and so did the advert on eBay, the car is "obviously damaged".

Yes, the man actually put it up on sale on eBay with a hilarious price tag of $16,850. The ad continued to read: "The frame is fully there along with the doors included." There is no mention of how exactly did the car end up looking like this. We're not sure if the toast Lamborghini actually found a buyer, but we do hope that it was just a bad joke.
