Dramatic photos show a Lamborghini engulfed in flames on a motorway near Wuhan, southern China.
The owner, who remained unidentified, had just bought this secondhand supercar and was on its way home to show it to his family and sort out relevant paperwork when the accident occurred, reported the People's Daily.
The cars, which boast a maximum speed of 340kmh, can cost up to £500, 000 when bought new. Reports said the man had paid 100,000 Yuan (£10,000)

This is so not 'spontaneous combustion' as described. Oil and petrol on an overheating engine is plain old combustion.

There are many incidents of the Gallardo burning like this, but at the price this must have been a locally made knockoff. That is certainly not the remains of the Lambo v10 in the back of that charred ruin and genuine Lambo alloys would have melted, those have to be steel wheels.

He should hop on his newly-obtained used private jet for a spin to clear his mind.
