A brand new Lamborghini Gallardo has recently exploded at a gas station during refueling.
Owning an Italian supercar isn’t that easy because aside from the huge fuel consumption, mind tax and servicing, salve you may also have the nasty surprise of seeing your ride going off in flames, for no obvious reason. This is exactly the case of the 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 in question, which exploded at a gas station during refueling. The driver was going from Indianapolis to Houston after watching the Indy 500 and 130 miles from home, he stopped to refill his tank. He turned off the engine but that didn’t stop the supercar into exploding.
Thankfully nobody was hurt and the gas station didn’t explode too. The insurance company is now investigating the odd situation but considering the fact that Lamborghini supercars, and not only, are well-known for going off in flames, the driver will most likely receive a brand new ride. As a quick reminder, the Lamborghini Gallardo is coming with a choice of two engines, a 5.0 liter V10 and a 5.2 liter V10, along with two transmissions, a six-speed manual and a six-speed automated manual. The supercar has been in production ever since 2003 and it’s assembled in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
