Lamborghini worth £400k reduced to charred wreckage after bursting into flames

A driver’s weekend was ruined after a sports car worth nearly £400,000 went up in flames at the side of the road.

These shocking pictures show the charred remains of the car worth almost half a million pounds after it burnt on the side of the road.

The car, a Lamborghini Countach, looked like it went up in flames after its middle-mounted V12 engine exploded into fire.

Worth roughly £400,000, only around 2000 of the model were ever produced world-wide, with the series discontinued in 1990.

The red super-car was spotted on the A370 near Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, on Friday, and was completely destroyed by the inferno.

No injuries were reported after the incident and workers were seen clearing the scene.

Commuters were held up by the evening rush hour fire, and passing petrolheads were sad to see such a fine vehicle destroyed by the flames.

The road surface under the Italian sports car will have been scorched by the raging fire and will likely need to be replaced after the damage caused.

The owner of the vehicle is unknown.
