Lamborghini Gallardo crashes, catches fire, driver abandons it image

The driver of a Lamborghini Gallardo has managed to crash the Italian supercar after losing control of the wheel near the George Washington Bridge and the model has instantly caught fire.

One of the most spectacular crashes of a Lamborghini Gallardo ever recorded took place near the George Washington Bridge on the New Jersey Turnpike, on Monday morning, this week. The driver has lost control of the wheel after probably showing off to his female passenger and the supercar has instantly caught fire. The two of them manage to flee from the scene. The local media says that no serious injuries were reported and no other vehicles were involved in the incident.

As a small reminder, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been produced between 2003 and 2013 when it was replaced by the Huracan. The supercar came in a two-door coupe and a two-door roadster body styles with a mid-engine and all-wheel drive or a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power was being provided by either a 5.0 liter V10 engine or by a 5.2 liter V10 unit connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed E-Gear automated manual transmission. The Gallardo is related to the Audi R8.
