That does every connoisseur of historic automobiles in the heart hurt: On the A53 motorway towards Reichenburg Lamborghini was born in 1970 with a robbery of the flames.

According to the owner of the Miura had a value of about 500 000.

For still unknown reasons, ignited a fire in the engine compartment behind the driver's seat and began to burn, as the St. Gallen canton police announced.

They were able to fire until the arrival of the firemen Uznach mostly clear. Laut dem Fahrer hatte der Lamborghini einen Wert von über 500 000 Franken. According to the driver of the Lamborghini had a value of about 500 000 francs.

so many cooked lambos lately...  :(

That article must be at least 10 years old though - France's previous currency "francs" was replaced with the Euro in 1999.  And look at those firefighters' uniforms, especially the guy with rolled up pants in the second photo!

True - I did spend a few seconds considering the validity of it's chronological relevancy seeing as I couldn't establish it from the article - however, who cares - it's the interwebs! :p

France uses both Francs and Euro's.

I'm pretty sure in France francs were officially phased out entirely in early 2002, but Switzerland still uses francs.  Reichenburg is in Switzerland.  So it's possible the article is current (but looking at the uniforms, maybe not).

I couldn't find the original thread on this car. The update is that the owner is suing a workshop claiming the car had the wrong spark plugs in it.

It should be considering what they do to cars in Tax the Rich.
