1800+ hp Twin-Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo catches fire at over 200mph [video]

Underground Racing builds some of the fastest Lamborghini Gallardos and here we have two identical models, both packing an insane 1800+ horsepower at the Texas Invitational event.

The drag race between these two V10 twin-turbo supercars started off all nice and then all of a sudden the orange caught fire at a speed over 200mph. The fire started as one of the turbochargers blew into pieces.

Thankfully nothing bad happened as the car was equipped with integrated fire system, found in race cars. Otherwise this fireball could have done a lot more than melt a few body panels.
