Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster Burns to a Crisp in Dubai, 1 of 500 Now Dead

I thought only Italian Cars burn. Since the Lambo is built with German Know How I am surprised it burned.

Lamborghini may have built the Aventador SV into a mechanical monster than can lap the Nurburgring in seven minutes, but the truth is that many owners will pursue different pathways with this Raging Bull.

As you can imagine, a vast number of Aventador Superveloces are being used for urban cruising. And if the moving display location happens to be the boiling-hot Dubai, the supercar might not enjoy it and rebel against its owner.

We donít know if this is what happened with the Aventador SV Roadster in the videos below, but we can sadly confirm that the machine has burned to a crisp on one of the suspended roads of Dubai Marina. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first documented case of an Aventador SV (Coupe or Roadster) fire.

The details are scarce at the moment, but the footage below shows us the fire originated in the engine compartment, not unlike most such unfortunate incidents.

And while the first clip below, which shows the flames spreading rapidly, is painful, youíll need nerves of steel carbon fiber to watch the second. This shows us the aftermath of the fiery episode, with the vehicle being entirely ruined.

Any carbonized (no pun intended) Aventador would be a massive loss, but factor in the limited production run of the SV and the problem becomes even greater - weíll remind you SantíAgata Bolognese is only building 500 units of the Aventador Superveloce Roadster.

Before you start jumping to conclusions about the job Lamborghini did with putting this car together, you should consider one aspect. Dubai is one of the worldwide supercar capitals, so it wouldnít surprise us to find out the vehicle had been fitted with a flamethrower exhaust. Moreover, most drivers over there, be they owners or rental customers, donít know what babying a supercar means, so there are many possible versions that couldíve led to this.
