I’m the first to admit that some of our used car picks from the classifieds are beyond the means of many. For instance, while £60,000 for a 996 Porsche 911 GT3 is good value, I know few of you have the cash to go out and buy such a beast. But, here’s a used supercar which you’ll almost certainly be able to afford. The catch? Err, there’s not a whole lot left.
It was a Lamborghini Huracan, before being razed to the ground in a catastrophic fire. The IAAI auction page has been picked up by various car outlets, probably because it’s not often you see such a thing up for grabs. Quite what you’d be able to salvage from it other than some charred mementos, we’re not sure.
Amusingly, the Huracan - located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana - has an estimated repair cost of $5 listed. The advert also mentions that the “Vehicle Won’t Start”. You don’t say?
You might have actually seen this car before. We’re pretty certain the car belonged to a chap called David Mahler, who found himself on the receiving end of death threats after taking a job from New Orleans city council to take down various Confederate flags from monuments last year. After his 2014 Huracan was torched in a suspected arson attack, he cancelled his contract with the city, fearing further reprisals against himself and his family.
