PETALING JAYA: A pile-up involving three multi-million ringgit Lamborghinis caused massive traffic jams along the North-South Expressway.

The imported cars, worth a total of about RM6mil (S$2.3mil), crashed into each other and were completely destroyed in a fiery accident at the 259th kilometre stretch of the north-bound lanes at 9.57am yesterday.

Negri Sembilan Fire and Rescue Department public relations officer Ramali Arbai said one of the drivers was believed to have lost control of his vehicle and hit the divider.

The impact caused the other cars to crash into the first one.

The wrecks comprise two Lamborghini Gallardos believed to be worth RM1.6mil (S$619,200) each and a RM2.8mil Lamborghini Aventador.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire in an hour.

Ramali said that although the accident caused congestion in the area for up to several hours with a backlog of cars up to the Pedas Linggi exit on the highway - located almost 10km away - his colleagues from the Senawang and Seremban fire stations were able to reach the scene at about 10.08am.

He added that there were no casualties as all drivers and passengers were able to escape.

It is learnt that all three cars belonged to Singaporeans who were in a convoy of five cars travelling to Kuala Lumpur.
