In the state of Missouri, USA, a brand new supercar Lamborghini Huracan Performante burned at the gas station. Video with the incident appeared recently in Instagram.
Owner Lamborghini participated in the run Goldrush Rally from Boston to Las Vegas. The incident happened in the middle of the route, in St. Louis, when he stopped at a refueling Mobil 1.
The driver of the neighboring minivan Chrysler left without taking out a refueling gun. The Italian supercar poured gasoline from the torn hose, which flared, hitting the red-hot exhaust pipes.
The owner of the car at this time stood in line at the store when refueling. The crew of the fire service arrived on the spot very quickly, but there was nothing to save: the car completely burned out in a matter of minutes. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
The race Goldrush Rally started on June 22, lasted two weeks and finished last weekend. Entry fee was 20 thousand dollars. The participants brought to the start of the race supercars Audi, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Maserati, Mclaren, Mercedes-AMG and tuning saloons Mercedes S-class.
Yes, that was myself and my friend with the two Lamborghinis at the gas station last night. We were out driving for a bit and I needed to go get gas. The blue Lamborghini pulled up right behind me. He decided to go in to get us waters and while I was trying to pay for my gas at the pump there was a card error, so I also went inside. As soon as we walked in, we saw a massive fireball out the window. We all ran out of the gas station to the other side of the road. At this point, we had no idea what happened or who’s car(s) were on fire. We dialed 911 and when the fire was out you could see that his car was completely burned down, ours just covered in ash. While talking to police and firefighters a man ran up and said he saw what happened. He was recording the cars to show his friends and caught a guy driving off with a gas pump still in his car. The pump sprayed fuel directly into the Huracan’s engine bay and it instantly ignited. Police found the guy that did it and everything will be taken care of. Just thankful we all got away safe and it didn’t escalate into a bigger fire. Video of the van – swipe left
