Last week, we showed 6 super expensive cars that had been abandoned. A Lamborghini Miura was one such car. This made us angry, but we got over it and then we moved on...

A few seconds later, the whole car burns fiercely A few seconds later, the whole car burns fiercely

See pics of the latest Lambo crash and burn.

Today, however, we bring even more terrible news. Shocking footage of a Lamborghini Miura in London has been uploaded onto YouTube.

Firefighters arrive on the scene and get to work Firefighters arrive on the scene and get to work

As you can see, the Miura is in quite a bad way. Actually, it's in flames and is well on its way to scrapheap heaven. RIP.

While we don't know exactly what caused this automotive catastrophe, one YouTube viewer who claims to have worked at a company that restored Miuras has a plausible explanation:

I can explain this. I worked for a Company called Bellla Machina, they restore about 3 Miura's a Year. The Original Wireing of the Miura is Notoriously? bad. And Lamborghini knew this. Since 1967, the Miura had minor engine and body improvements to prevent this. Wireing of any old car are just bad. They need to b replaced by N.O.S modern parts to prevent this from happening.And you were wondering why this car has Such a high amount of Ensurance ? ;-)
With the flames under control, the fire damage is clear With the flames under control, the fire damage is clear
How the mighty have fallen. RIP Lamborghini Miura How the mighty have fallen. RIP Lamborghini Miura

Whatever the cause, we're certainly sad to have to bring you this flaming video footage.
