Remains of a 1974 Lamborghini Espada that exploded
The owner of a 1974 Lamborghini Espada received quite a shock when he attempted to start his car on Friday morning. The car belonged to a Bloomfield Township resident in Michigan, who wishes to remain anonymous, and was located in the garage of a house that the owner had just sold.
According to the owner, the car erupted into flames upon being started and then exploded, managing to destroy a large portion of the house.

For those unfamiliar with the Espada, the car was a four-seater grand tourer not unlike the new Ferrari FF.
It was built by Lamborghini between 1968 and 1978 and came powered by a 325 horsepower 4.0-liter V-12.
