Lamborghini Aventador Roadster burns in Dubai

A few weeks back, images of a gutted Lamborghini Aventador Roadster from Dubai surfaced on the web. Now, a new dash cam video puts to light how the whole incident unfolded. The Aventador Roadster, which was a LP 720-4 50° Anniversario Edition with fake SV stickers and a DMC wing, was a part of a super-car convoy that was out for a drive.

A bit of customary revving ensured when the convoy was waiting at an intersection for the light to turn green. Given the scorching Middle Eastern heat, coupled with the Aventador’s tendency to spit flames, the rear end freakishly caught fire. The driver kept on revving, totally unaware of his super-car’s burning derrière, and kept on driving in spite of fellow motorists shouting at him to take notice of the situation. We cringed as the flames started to lick its stunning Giallo Maggio (May Yellow) paintwork.

Rest, assured, it didn’t end well, as the 720 bhp, V12 hearted Italian had already turned into an automotive inferno by the time the owner came to his wits. We wish somebody had walked up to the car and alerted the driver though, instead of just yelling. Watch the video below (fire starts at 1:35):

    Filthy rich idiot !!! Jackasses always like to show off in Dubai – The Las Vegas of the middle east.
    Can't blame Lamborghini for these issues – but these kind of things should've been tested when the car was in development stages.

    Lot of lambo's on fire off the late , It's is better that Lamborghini finds a solution to it, like a fire detector(heat sensor) or mount a camera at the back which gives a view of the engine (which is where the fire catches up usually).
