It could be residual fumes that mixed with the perfect amount of air to ignite. If the car is running fine I wouldnt worry about it too much. Hope this puts you a little more at ease about the situation.

Are you still using OEM cats or some type of high flow cats? Likely it's due to your aftermarket exhaust system. Your cats usually prevent any of this from happening.
I believe that the cats are still stock, I will check with the previous owner though
