A nestcam from a nearby building captured the whole scene and it starts out innocently enough. The Gallardo comes to a halt in the left lane, probably because the occupants noticed some smoke from behind the cabin.
The passenger can be seen getting out and trying to douse the flames with a water bottle. It proves ineffective and just a minute later, a bystander hands the driver a fire extinguisher. Despite a valiant second attempt to quell the blaze, it continues to burn, leaving the driver and passenger with nothing to do but watch the supercar burn as they wait for fire crews.
Note all the air pollution it creates as it burns to the ground.
