  First Drive: 2018 Lamborghini Urus We should be surprised how good this 'Super-SUV' is on track, but it is a Lamborghini, after allYes, the most fanatical gearheads might feel justified in chastising Lamborghini for succumbing to the temptation of building a sport-ute. Get over it! Almost every other automaker of note has also given in, and is now raking in big bucks and record sales.

A Lamborghini Huracan Performante on its way home from the Goldrush Rally in the U.S. met a fiery end in a St Louis gas station after a devastating mishap. A car pulled away from the gas station with the fuel pump still in, spraying the Lambo with gasoline and setting it ablaze.

Two Lamborghinis that were on their way home from taking part in the Goldrush Rally via St Louis, Missouri, had stopped by a Mobil1 fuel station to fill up with gasoline when another car, which appeared to be a Chrysler MPV not associated with the rally, drove off with the fuel hose still attached to the car.

Car Review: 2018 BMW M5

  Car Review: 2018 BMW M5 When you have to search the ranks of Ferrari's fastest supercars for comparisons, you know there’s something special about the new BMW M5And yet, say the analysts at the Motor Authority, there is unimpeachable — OK, again, like the 45th president, quasi-unimpeachable — evidence that BMW is being duplicitous with the performance figures we’re all bandying about for their all-new, all-singing, and all-wheel drive M5.

Witnesses report seeing a huge ball of flame rising up in the forecourt as people scrambled for safety across the road, unaware of what was happening. The fire brigade arrived quickly on the scene, but the Lamborghini was completely destroyed.  

Rally organisers commented on the fire on their official Instagram account, saying: "We are happy to report that no one was hurt in yesterday’s fire at a gas station in St Louis involving a Goldush Rally Lamborghini Performante."

The Goldrush Rally started in Boston on 22 June and finished up last weekend in Las Vegas, with participants in their exotic machinery taking two weeks to cross the U.S. The event costs around $20,000, but those who stump up the cash are promised a "premiere automotive lifestyle rally." During last year’s event, one driver had his Lamborghini Huracan seized by police after repeated speeding convictions.

The Huracan Performante was launched just last year at the 2017 Geneva motor show, featuring a 5.2-liter V10 engine producing a heady 631 hp. It manages 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and will travel on to a whopping top speed of 218 mph.
