This Video Of A Flaming Lamborghini Miura SV Is The Saddest Thing You'll See Today

Remember when Raphael got to hang out with the Lamborghini Miura, one of the most beautiful cars ever made? You're about to see one go up on smoke. Before you watch this, you may want to send the children, the elderly and other sensitive people into another room. This bound to upset them.


We don't know the backstory on this one quite yet, although it was sent to us by the same folks behind the famed Rolls-Royce and Ferrari Enzo hoonage videos. They were apparently filming this Miura for their next video when it decided to pretend it was a newer Lamborghini (Edit: Actually, fires were a problem with the early Miura models) and go up in flames.

No word yet on the cause of the fire. We may get more details on this later, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, feel free to go find a dark secluded place where you can cry alone. I know I had to.


Patrick, you have it all wrong. The Miura was the ORIGINAL firestarter! From

"Early Miuras were notorious for being a fire hazard. The problem was caused by Lamborghini's decision to use Weber 40 IDL 3C1 carburetors which were designed exclusively for racing applications and weren't suitable for road use. The problem occurred when the car sat idling (e.g. at a stoplight), the area above the throttles filled with fuel which often ignited when the car accelerated away from the stop. One of Lamborghini's engineers devised a modification for the carburetors which created a fuel-return."
