China’s luxury car graveyard (currently occupied by the miserable wrecks of this Ferrari and Lamborghini) has claimed another victim as a 4.2 million RMB sports car met its doom yesterday, suffering a mutilation that would not look out of place in (China’s new favourite film) Fast & Furious.
Photographs published by Sohu show the smoking corpse of the Lamborghini in Shenyang, Liaoning province.
The unidentified Lamborghini owner revealed: ‘I was driving the car with my friend to Shisanwei road. I suddenly heard a sound from the bottom of my car, my foot was vibrating, and I smelled something burning, then I discovered the bottom of my car was on fire.’
The owner jumped from the car as the flames grew, before they eventually enveloped the entire vehicle. While all the passengers managed to make a safe escape, local fire fighters were unable to salvage the car – which was burnt to a crisp moments within minutes.
The owner will be glad he took the liberty of insuring his prized toy, and expects to receive full compensation for the 4.2 million Lamborghini.
