It is always a shame when a classic high performance super car meets an unfortunate end; like the Bugatti EB110 that died in a Russian street race. Well today we have some more sad news for exclusive exotic super car enthusiasts, this time it was a Lamborghini Miura that went out in a blaze of glory.

According to the 47 year old German owner, he was driving home when he began to hear a cacophony of strange noises coming from the transversely mounted V12 behind his head. The car then caught on fire and even the help of benevolent motorists couldn’t put out the conflagration coming from underneath the Lamborghini’s engine cover.

The big question that remains is: is it possible to spare the sacrilege and repair this rare piece of Italian automobilia that was a slap in the face to Enzo Ferrari directly from Ferruccio himself?

All sorts of sports cars are flaming up lately huh? Could it have anything to do with some mistakes on the maintenance of this engine’s or are they purely technical?
