Stolen Lamborghini Murcielago left to burnEnlarge Photo
This sorry looking Lamborghini Murcielago is the result of a fire that engulfed the $350,000 supercar earlier today in Brooklyn, New York. The car was stolen by two men who were seen fleeing from the vehicle moments before it caught on fire.
It’s a well known fact that Lamborghinis are prone to catching on fire but it’s not clear whether the men who stole the vehicle were responsible for torching it or if the car went up in flames all on its own.
As reported on MotorAuthority.com last month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has made a recall for 2007 and 2008 model year Lamborghini Murcielago Coupes and Roadsters because of a potential fire risk due to the design of the car’s fuel pump, and it's very possible that this is the reason for the disaster seen today.
What a shame to see such a beautiful car end up like this. Hopefully some of the parts can be salvaged, but it looks unlikely.
