Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera burns like a crisp in England image

A few Englishmen have been witnessing a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera turn itself into a torch on a highway in the country, for no obvious reason.

Usually this section is reserved to car crashes but every once in a while, something “out of the box” pops in, like the weird phenomenon of spontaneous combustion, which seems to affect a lot of supercars. The newest incident is coming from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England, and it is involving a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. The Italian supercar burned on the A41 highway but the driver and passenger managed to escape.

According to the guys from thesupercarkids, the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera was on sale, at a local dealership, but it will most likely end up in the scrap yard. The Superleggera has been introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, back in 2007, and it paid tribute to the 350GT, made by Carrozzeria Touring. The model weighs 100 kg less than the standard Gallardo and it has carbon fiber panels, titanium wheel nuts and more. Power has been upgraded by 10 HP (7 kW) thanks to the ECU upgrade, the improved exhaust and the intake. The total power stands at 523 HP (390 kW).
