Lambo have the issue too? Always seemed like it were always Ferrari's that randomly caught fire.

There's been a crap load of Gallardos that have caught fire, as well as a handful of R8s, which share the same engine..and Murcielagos have been seriously questioned for shoddy build quality. There's a website that documented all the flaws found in the Murcielagos.

Holy shit it's a repost? Feel free to mention it again I don't think we quite got that the first post you made.

I never said it happened today, or yesterday just posted a tragic vid of a car.


Figured it out by now? Redesigned the car since April? Yea maybe.

Now piss off and let the rest of mourn the loss of this beautiful car in peace.

Berz out.

it 'seems' like lots of supercars are prone to burning down. there was an enzo that burnt to the ground near kelowna a couple years back.


but what it might be, is that anytime anything supercar burns to the ground, news spreads all over the internet.

Well, this is just me thinking here...but you ask, why do supercars burn more than regular cars?

You have a car, where they are squeezing every last drop of power out of an engine. Spin it faster, drive it harder, more rpms, higher redline, pump more gas through, more air so there are bound to be issues with that that you aren't going to find in your regular civic.

Next, you have a car that isn't used as regularly as your civic either. If you see a lamborghini for sale with 75,000 miles, its a high mileage dog. A civic is just coming into its own.

Plus, I'd say you have a complicated engine in a complicated location in the car-so its difficult to see if you have a problem, probably until you are driving on the highway saying, "do you smell smoke?"
