Lamborghini roasted after illegal drag race in Shenzhen

Posted: 03/11/2013 3:39 pm

The sight of a supercar on fire is a spectacle to behold, especially when stupid people do stupid things to cause such silly accidents.

This driver junked his expensive pride-and-joy after it caught fire mid-way through an illegal drag race in downtown Shenzhen yesterday (Sunday). The Lamborghini Murcielago is now a write-off after the driver’s car apparently malfunctioned on the side of the road. Unlike his car, the driver got away unscathed.

Nothing like karma or divine intervention.

This particular Italian supercar will set you back a cool $400,000 (RMB2.5 million).
