Was that the Lamborghini that went on fire? There was a posting on Alert Page Boston.

Lamborghini Inflagrante?

Didn't those have a self-roasting feature when driven aggressively in stop and go traffic?

what Lamborghinis are like today, but in the old days of the 55-mile-an-hour speed limit, the Countach had the reputation of being the only car you could not legally take out of first gear in the United States.

The Ducati 999 (mid 2000's) was similar. Very tall 1st gear.

(also tall bike, I couldn't ride it)

I'm sure this guy will opt for a McLaren from now on.

After the Fire Department extinguished the engine fire, they tore it apart with a jaws of life to hit some of the hot spots. Also took them awhile to get the battery disconnected, as the lights were on for some time even as the hulk was still smoldering.

Lamborghini fires often and they are expensive to train on. Everyone went home safe, which is what's important.

I won't speculate on the cause of fire just yet but often the person with the most expensive car can't afford it or maintain it.

Although a fire can happen to any vehicle, I had very few Hyundais or cheaper makes (per vehicles sold) to catch fire in traffic.

I believe there was a design flaw with Lamborghinis:

Seems that these car-b-ques result from fuel system issues when people rev them too much in traffic or when the engine is very hot.

Yes there is a few videos on YouTube of someone reviving and the muffler starting to spit flames then the car just engulfs

Look up the definition of that. And knowing that its a project car, its possible one or two things done to it was wrong, and this was the result.

If you read the linked tweet, it was going to be modded, but had not yet been touched.
