Another supercar has been obliterated by fire, this time a white Lamborghini Gallardo which suffered a malfunction in the engine bay.

It happened a couple of days ago in Shenyang northeast China in the evening hours when a fire suddenly emerged from the V10 engine and quickly expanded onto the rest of the vehicle. The driver managed to get out and suffered only minor injuries while the car is now barely recognizable.

According to local media, the owner of the car is the driver's brother and apparently it's one of the last Gallardo units produced by Lamborghini as the car was acquired two months ago as new for 4 million yuan ($644,000 / €575,600 /  £416,800).
