A man driving in downtown Seattle in his Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 when smoke suddenly appeared from his car.

The smoke quickly turned into a fire with minutes, and the fire completely consumed the car in seemingly a matter of moments. The driver hopped out of the car and opened the engine, but by then there was smoke everywhere.

There was also a passenger in the car, and he jumped out of the car—though he waited longer than I would have since the car was on fire.

The whole incident was captured on video, and the Gallardo was clearly destroyed in the unfortunate incident.

Lamborghinis have a history of engine fires (as do Ferrari’s), which is the last thing you want to hear before spending $200,000 on a car.

It looks like the driver and the passenger are OK, but it’s going to hurt if they ever watch that video.
