YouTube sensation Cody Detwiler, boasting nearly 6 million subscribers, faced a harrowing ordeal as his new luxury car and rental van erupted in flames, obliterating both vehicles.

The $400,000 Ferrari F8, with only 5,000 miles, succumbed to an accidental inferno captured in Detwiler's video.

Despite speculation, Detwiler asserted it wasn't staged, emphasizing the genuine nature of the incident.

The catastrophe unfolded as the Ferrari, showcased in a lively drive through a Texas cornfield, saw its right tire catch fire. Efforts to douse the flames proved futile, swiftly engulfing the adjacent van.

Detwiler, seemingly unfazed by the loss, mused on minimal insurance coverage, pondering replacement possibilities.

The fire claimed all but a few salvageable parts, including carbon ceramics and an $8,000 titanium exhaust.

While some followers questioned the authenticity, Detwiler, with a $5 million net worth, dismissed conspiracies, affirming his intent to replace the Ferrari.

The incident, whether viewed as misfortune or spectacle, adds another unexpected chapter to Detwiler's online exploits.
