Announced in March at the Geneva Motor Show, the exclusive Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is scheduled for delivery this September to 300 eagerly awaiting owners. Those wealthy waiters better hope they can tame this bronco buster, as Wrecked Exotics has recently reported that the second LP640 that has crashed and burned on public roads. The latest occurred in St. Andrae, Austria on June 15th while the rarest of Murcielagos was being driven to a press event. Witnesses report that the Lamborghini lost control, ran into a tree and then burst into flames. The driver was flown to a nearby hospital to be treated for a severe burns.

      You know though, I'm with #10, cars that aren't crumpled into a mass of metal shouldn't be catching fire. Not even the worst of the passenger car makes bursts into flame unless suffering some horrific damage. I guess all you Lambo drivers better start wearing nomex flight suits on your way to the party eh?

      I don't see much impact damage here. What did the car hit? Also, most cars won't catch fire even after a pretty severe collision, so this seems to point to a couple of safety issues.

      It can be more than just bad driving. The Bugatti Veyron was delayed because at first, not even the test drivers could handle it. They had to do some serious revisions to the chassis to allow it to handle 1000 hp. If test drivers are crashing pre-production Lambos, then something similar could be at work here

      How many more mid life crisis men are going to destroy these great sports cars? Maybe since they have enough money to buy one they should learn how to drive one.

      "I don't know what happened. I think I gave a kick to the wheel, and then, the next thing I see is the cars bursts in flames! How did that happen?"

      Just because you have a great car doesn't make you a great driver.

      If you notice, the car is in a thickly settled area (houses,stores, side streets). Thank god he only screwed himself over.

      I hope the driver is scarred for life.

      It is a pity such good car. But I think, that its owner buy to itself one more... :)

      C'mon guys, it was a pre-production LP640, so the owner was the manufacturer and the driver was -most probably- a very experienced factory test driver....

      The Lamborgini lost control?

      A Lamborgini doesn't lose control, it just is. A driver loses control.
