Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera catches fire in England image

A Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera has met its end recently in England after flames have devoured it.

If you are sad that the Lamborghini Gallardo is no longer in production, don’t be, because even if it has left the assembly line, there are still some issues with it, like the spontaneous combustion, which has never been explained by the Italian based automaker. The newest incident involving such a supercar is coming from England and it involves large flames. According to Wrecked Exotics, the model has caught fire on the A41, near Kings Langley, for no obvious reason. Before the firefighters arrived, it has been completely destroyed.

The “raging bull” has introduced the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera back in 2007, during the Geneva Motor Show. The model in question has paid tribute to the construction style of the first production model, the 350GT. This was 100 kg lighter than the standard Gallardo, thanks to the use of rearview mirror housings, interior door panels, central tunnel, engine cover, rear diffuser and some other parts, which have been made out of carbon fiber. The supercar received 10 HP (7 kW) more thanks to the improved ECU, intake and exhaust, coming in with a total of 523 HP (390 kW). The unit was connected to a 6-speed E-Gear transmission in the U.S. or a 6-speed manual transmission, offered at no extra cost.
