Watch And Weep As High-Powered Lambo Burns In Florida
There are some cars we’d love to see burn. The Chrysler PT Cruiser springs to mind, while the DS 4 Crossback and MG 3 also make a pretty good case for being killed by fire.
One car we wouldn’t like to see burn, however, is the Lamborghini Gallardo. This 10-cylinder monster was everything the Audi R8 should have been – bold, characterful and wonderfully sonorous.
As it so often goes in life, though, the things we hate endure and the things we love perish. So the car burning merrily in this video isn’t a Vauxhall Viva or a Yugo, but a Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.
It isn’t any old Gallardo Superleggera, either. According to CarScoops.com, this particular one had been modified by Underground Racing, which fitted a brace of turbochargers and upped the power output to around 1,000bhp.
It seems, though, that the heat from the uprated engine was too much for the car, which was taking part in BullFest Miami – an event that attracts huge numbers of Lamborghinis to the Floridian city – and, well, see for yourself…
A sad sight for sure.
