    As the title says, all 458 Italias have been recalled. This is due to a problem with them randomly bursting into flames. Question is, does this affect the car being in TF3? Hell, if it burst into flames, Bay would probably use it as footage.

    I would guess that Ferrari would probably go to the set and fix the problem there, rather than make them return the car....

    and from i was told of the problem... it's a simple fix... i think

    I'm pretty sure Ferrari will be very accomodating if this does affect the vehicle being used by Paramount for TF3.

    A movie too late, a car with flames spewing out would have made a great alt mode for the Fallen. :D

    Recalling something and ending production of something is totally different.

    You can still use a car even if they stop making them. You can't use a car after it has burst into flames and made the babies cry. ;]

    Yeah, and the fire started in the same place too... probably for the same reason, but this time it's not from the manufacturer, it's from the heavy modding to him. They probably lowered the suspension and the exhaust was touching something like the Ferrari.
