NSX prototype smolders at the 'Ring

It appears that the NSX prototype that was photographed testing at the Nurburgring earlier this week had a bit of a fire in the engine bay.

We received 2 sets of photos from the spy photo agencies showing the charred remains of the NSX prototype parked alongside the armco near the "Pflanzgarten" section of the Ring. It appears that the fire began in the engine bay area and spread forward a bit, burning out the passenger cabin. Reports from bystanders say the engineers parked the car after seeing flames emerging from the rear, and they escaped without incident before the fire consumed the prototype.
