Three Lamborghinis burnt to the ground on Friday when a charity drive turned disastrous.

Supercar owners were reportedly driving from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur when a motorist swerved toward their exotic car convoy on a Malaysian highway.

The incident triggered a collision between a Lamborghini Aventador, Gallardo and Gallardo Superleggera, all of which caught fire after coming to a stop.

Authorities said no-one was hurt during the incident, though all three cars were destroyed.

The trio of cars are believed to be worth around $2 million thanks to high taxes that make the Aventador cost more than $1 million in Singapore.

The owners may have difficulty replacing their cars, as Lamborghini has finished building the Gallardo and is gearing up for a replacement.

The new car, believed to be called the Cabrera, is expected to have a V10 engine mounted to a new twin-clutch transmission and all wheel drive.

The charity drive disaster came less than a week after The Fast and The Furious star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas died when their Porsche Carrera GT crashed and exploded into flames in California.

Car fires have made headlines throughout 2013 thanks to a spate of incidents affecting the battery-powered Tesla Model S, while Ferrari’s 458 Italia was the subject of unwanted publicity when several of its cars burnt in 2012.
