A charity drive from Singapore to Malaysia went quite awry when a convoy of Lamborghinis smashed into each other on one of the city-state’s highways, with one of the cars catching fire. The crash was a chain reaction set off by a local driver swerving toward two Gallardos and an Aventador, sending the latter into the guardrail and causing it to go up in flames. According to the report on CarBuzz, there were no injuries in the incident, although the circumstances – supercars burning in the midst of a charity event – draws some parallels to the tragic accident involving Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.

At the Tokyo Motor Show last week, two major Japanese companies showed off new forced-induction motorbike engines.
Kawasaki rolled in with a supercharged four-cylinder motorbike engine. It offered little in the way of details, disclosing only that the turbine blades were developed in-house to withstand the heat and vibration of spooling up at motorbike speeds.
Suzuki is taking a different approach, however. Its Recursion concept bike packs a turbocharged 588cc two-cylinder engine with a turbocharger and intercooler. The compact package churns out just under 100 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque, packaged into a motorbike that weighs just 384 pounds dry.
It’ll be interesting to see how this trend develops and how the reliance on forced-induction might change the character of the motorbikes in which they’re installed.
