Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera meets its end in Tasmania

Tasmania has recently witnessed an impressive Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera which has met its end due to a fire which has extended to the engine.

If you were wondering why supercars don’t burn any more, for no obvious reason, this year, than this news will put a stop to your questions because an impressive Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera has recently met its end in Tasmania, because of spontaneous combustion. The model in question has caught in the cabin and flames rapidly expanded to the engine compartment, in the rear, making it look the way it does. We’re not sure what happened to the driver, but chances are he walked away unharmed from the incident.

The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera has been officially introduced during the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. The model is paying tribute to the first construction style of the first Lamborghini production model and it has been made by Carrozzeria Touring. The supercar is 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than the standard Gallardo, thanks to the use of carbon fiber. Power stands at 533 HP (390 kW), 10 HP (7 kW) more than the standard model, which is sent to the wheels through a 6-speed E-Gear, or a 6-speed manual transmission.
