The modified Lamborghini Huracan owned by a noted YouTuber has been damaged after catching fire while doing a burnout and donuts.
The incident in question happened during the recent Burnyard Bash hosted by Hoonigan at the Irwindale Speedway and the Huracan is owned by a man named Damon Fryer who runs Daily Driven Exotics. While the fire was completely avoidable, it does make for entertaining viewing.
Throughout the first video below, Fryer can be seen expertly sliding the exotic around the tarmac much to the delight of screaming fans in attendance. The car has been converted to rear-wheel drive and extensively modified to include a custom exhaust system that lets the 5.2-liter V10 engine really scream.
At the 2-minute mark of the video below, Fryer got a little overconfident and tapped the front bumper into one of the crash barriers. While most drivers would have simply reversed away with their tail between their legs, the YouTuber decided to forcibly continue to drive into the barrier, crushing the front bumper and allowing him to spin up the rear wheels.
Plumes of smoke shoot out from the rear tires before a fireball can be seen briefly engulfing the rear. Fortunately, the fire didn’t last very long and crews were able to extinguish it.
The YouTuber likely isn’t very concerned with the damage caused as the views generated from his videos will pay for any repairs needed.
