A fire in the Italian port of Savona has destroyed hundreds of Maseratis awaiting export. The Local's Italian edition reports:
After sea waters rose and flooded the port last night, including the two parking areas, local media reports that the salt water caused car batteries to explode and catch fire in the early hours of this morning.
Most of the vehicles destroyed in the blaze were brand new Maserati. Several hundred were reportedly stored at the terminal ready for export to the Middle East.
. . .
The car terminal fire is still ongoing, with the port reportedly enveloped in smoke and ‘continuous’ explosions coming from inside the parking area.
Four teams of firefighters are on the scene and the port remains closed.

Here's video footage of the fire.
Each of those vehicles probably represents at least $100,000 going up in smoke, if you include lost profits, etc. I hope Maserati's insurance company has plenty of money on hand!
