I thought Lamborghini was owned and engineered by Audi?

Retarded. How come only the high performance and high tech models go up in flames more than the crapy cheap wagons. Seriously, what's the money paying for?

modify that into 'Italian high performance and high tech models', I never had luck with my Fiat Punto(1995) long time ago, he also loved smoke

Nothing strange, Italian cars are stylish but temperamental...

That's the litmus test for a supercar! Christened by fire, so to say.

So sad to listen the one of the guys saying he has a lamborghini himself and that he which that it would burn also (couldn´t understand the reason he wanted this) People just dont apreciate these works of art, nowdays we just see them like "an object" just like some Iphone or whatever. Sad
