This 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Exploded At A Gas Station

I keep thinking that, if I had the money, I would go for a late Lamborghini Gallardo 550-2. But the longer I wait, the more likely it is they'll all melt. This is why you always keep the receipt.

It's a fun car, no doubt about that. But it seems to be unusually explosive as well. This letter that landed in our inbox supports that theory:

My dad was driving his 2013 Lamboghini Gallardo on a road trip back from the Indy 500 from Indianapolis to Houston. 130 miles from home he stopped to get gas, and YES he did turn the car off. While fueling, his car engine literally exploded for to be investigated reasons. Here are the end results of this "hot" ride lol. No one was injured, thankfully, and also thankfully the entire gas station did not explode.


Too hot for late spring I guess.


No he only took one photo due to the fact that his phone was burnt to a crisp in the explosion and someone snapped that photo and sent it to him. Insurance is holding an investigation, Lamborghini might pay for it because it was a terrible mal function.
