A black Lamborghini Huracan Performante was consumed by flames on Friday evening in Boston, Massachusetts.
The supercar caught fire at the intersection of Boylston and Dartmouth streets, in the vicinity of the Boston Public Library. At around 5:50 p.m., firefighters responded to a 911 call and extinguished the fire, reporting no injuries.
Unfortunately, one can’t say the same thing about the Italian supercar, as the damage caused by the blaze looks irreparable.
As if the flames hadn’t done enough harm, the firefighters had to cut parts of the bodywork as they tried to locate the source of the fire and eliminate the possibility of it starting again.

According to the Boston Fire Department cited by Boston.com, the cause of the fire is unknown. One thing is certain: its source was in the Huracan Performante‘s engine compartment. As the photos and videos show, that was the area that got engulfed in flames.
Around the same time as the fire started devouring the Lambo, passersby began posting photos and videos of the blaze on social media. Interestingly, most didn’t seem to care much about the Lambo and made humorous comments.

Similarly, others were amused at the situation, but the most bizarre behavior came from a cyclist. Ignoring the risk of an explosion, he positioned his bicycle very close to the burning Lambo to take a photo. Fortunately, a firefighter quickly removed him from the area.
