A Lamborghini Diablo has caught fire for no obvious reason on a highway in Canada just a few days ago but happily no one was injured in the unfortunate incident.
As you probably already know from previous reports, owning a supercar isn’t all glamour and besides the huge taxes, insurance and service bills, you can always become the unfortunate guy whose ride will spontaneously combust. The newest example of such an incident is coming from Montreal, Canada, where a Lamborghini Diablo has caught fire for no obvious reason on a highway. The flames could have started from just about anything, from a fuel leak to the engine overheating. Fortunately, no one was injured, which is more than we can say about the supercar.
The Lamborghini Diablo came in 1990 as the successor of the Countach. The supercar in question has been produced until 2001 in 2,884 units, when it was replaced by the more popular Murcielago. The Lamborghini Diablo came in two body styles and with a choice of two V12 engines, a 5.7 liter and a 6.0 liter, both of them mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Top speed in the supercar stood at 320 km/h (200 mph). The model was 4,460 mm long, 2,040 mm wide and 1,105 mm tall.
