    Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Last week I posted an Enzo in the Ferrari Forum ....

    This week, a Gallardo. Man, these cars need to come with some kind of special fire policy discount.

    Burnt all  the way down to nothing but bare metal, ashes, and carbon dust.

     This happened in Voula, a suberb of Athens, Greece during the last weekend... Very sad...

    All these fires of exotic cars are ridiculous...on a percentage basis of actual cars, the numbers are much, much too high. Imagine how many more would burn, if they were used as daily drivers!


    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Italian cars are so FLAMING HOT

    Agreed. The numbers as a % of car produced are completely and uttterly out of hand.

    Had this been Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda, etc. etc. they'd be rung up on Federal Investigations already.

     i knew this was going to be a hot summer but things are getting out of hand. Ferrais, now Lambos... who's next?


    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    If those cars where equipped with a small size fire-extinguisher, there would have been minor repairs....Its just so sad to see these types of pics, specially the Enzo one.

    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Strange that there are all these expensive cars suddenly combusting right in the middle of a recession. Wonder how the insurance companies feel about this coincidence?


    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Good point 

    Although for larger claims, no doubt, the insurance claim assessor/investigator would check (if possible) for any evidence of arson 

    But even if people were committing arson, insurance companies tend only to pay current market value anyway so why bother? Surely it's better just to sell at market value...

    Looks like the Fire Chief drives a jeep. 


    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Saturday on Nordschleife: the driver of a yellow Gallardo somehow completely missed the braking point before the Bergwerk corner, hits the armco and the car was engulfed in flames within seconds Smiley

    Luckily the driver wasn't hurt and could jump out of the car Smiley

    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    I dont know, but in the last couple of weeks there are many more of those "burn outs" like any time before. Is it really happening more often or did we just haven't been informed before?


    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    Not only the girls are hotter in the summer time Smiley

    Re: Another Lambo Spontaneous Combustion

    He sold it about a year ago.  He said he got fed up of idiots in M3's etc getting right up his back bumper all the time.  Too much attention.

    The Flaming Lamborghini's worry me more though...
