Mein Auto: '07 X5 4.8i
I know where this happened! Arizona, during an official training event. A salesperson took a turn too hard (trying to show off I'm sure) couldn't handle the power and manager to run the vehicle onto a bale of hay. The driver and passengers exited the vehicle and no one thought to get the vehicle off of the hay.

In a matter of minutes, the hot undercariage ignited the hay, and eventually the entire vehicle was swamped in flames - and a heavily optioned vehicle at that.

The "ringing" noise you hear in the video is coming from the vehicle in which the camera is held. The 2007 X5 has an updated warning sound - yup, you heard it.
