What&#39;s odd is they seemed to have started on their own (ie; no crash or accident).

Yeah. Seems engine fires are relatively common for these cars

Can you imagine if that happened while you were driving? Are they serious about these cars actually having these kinds of problems?

Yeah, Lamborghini and Ferrari are notorious for engine fires. During normal driving too. If it happened while the car was being driven hard on a track I might be able to understand but these cars catch fire during normal driving.

I find it so funny to how people react to this stuff, especially these exotics being burnt down. When the diablo was beside the road burning, people just kept going by as if they see it on a daily basis--"Hey, no big deal, just another Lambo on fire. Honey, while we&#39;re by the store, do we need milk or bread?" Nobody even stopped to help. A shame. One guy slowed down, either in amazement or contemplating to be a hero, but he just got honked at by other impatient motorist. Crazy kids and their need to get to wal-mart I guess. And, since it seemed to be raining, I&#39;m sure no one wanted to get out of the vehicle...I mean, seriously, would YOU want to get your hair wet in order to do someone some good? Now, I&#39;m sure that no one (hopefully...until proven otherwise, I&#39;ll maintain this assumption) was hurt, as there seemed to be no accident involved while it sit there burning, so hopefully that&#39;s people&#39;s justification for not stopping to lend a helping hand, besides the fact that no one (usually) carries a fire extinguisher with them. Just a guess.

It really does suck. I pity these guys to lose their cars (or any other possession) to a fire, wreck, or whatever. Ironically, people who can usually afford these cars don&#39;t have the same concerns as us regular folk. They lose a Ferrari, they buy another one. I&#39;m sure that once in a blue moon, they&#39;re financed.

Oh well. I really do prefer to have my lambo rare, as opposed to well done. Its a shame, huh?

My guess is they are notorious for fires because they are expensive investments and sometimes people need cash quick.. insurance money.. you get the drift. lol
