Another example of a Lamborghini Gallardo has been ruined after flames have eaten its whole body, recently, in Tampa, Florida, after an apparent engine failure.
We are starting the week with a new addition to our wrecked supercar category and the model pictured below used to be a Lamborghini Gallardo, transformed into a melted pile of metal, plastic and rubber, after an apparent engine failure. According to the local media, the Italian supercar in question has met its end in Tampa, Florida, while being parked outside a restaurant. The good news is that no one has been injured in the unfortunate incident, but the sad part is that the Tampa Fire Rescue team hasn’t been able to save it, despite arriving soon at the scene.
The supercar used to be estimated at 150,000 USD but after the flames coming out of its engine bay have devoured it, it won’t be worth even 1 percent of the original amount. Hopefully, the insurance will cover it because Lamborghini will not have anything to say on the subject, just like Ferrari or other supercar manufacturers whose vehicles spontaneously combust.
Lamborghini has been producing the Gallardo between 2003 and 2014, in the Sant’Agata Bolognese facility. The model has been offered in two body styles, coupe and roadster, with a mid-engine and all-wheel drive or a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive. The supercar came with two engine choices, the 5.0L V10 and the 5.2L V10, with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automated manual transmission. The Gallardo production has been stopped last year after its successor, the Huracan, has been introduced.
